Uh, hello. I've seen your comics and I must say; they're very nicely done and I love how you tell stories with them. Anyway, keep up the good work and hoping that you're taking care of yourself during this trying time.

Hey, Nintendrawer, I recently came across this. I was wondering. What did you think of your characters Marc and Peter finally having their first kisses ?
Btw Monica, I like to make myself a big part of Mario's family and make Marco and Louise and King Richard and Queen Lillian my parents in-law. :3
This kinda got me thinking...
To what degree are you okay with people constructively (operative word: constructively) critiquing your work/comics, whether it'd be the drawing or the story aspect of them? Or criticism in general?
"I don't really like how [character] is portrayed as..."
"I wish [event] would happen"
"I don't like how [character] did/said [this]"
"Maybe this design would look better if you..."
"This story would have been better if..."
"Maybe you could try this colour?"
Or are you fine with critique as long as it's only certain phrasing (how it's worded)?
Moreover, where do you draw the line between constructive critique, UNconstructive criticism, plain criticism, or upfront hating?
I'm with you in terms of people giving you hate or flack, I agree it's unwarranted... what someone draws/writes is a pretty stupid reason to be hating another fellow human being in the first place.
The reason I ask is because this has been a conversation on Twitter lately, and I've seen some artists accepting criticism (constructive or not) to varying degrees... and I've seen some artists not wanting to receive any sort of criticism at all... either way, I think those who fall in all categories should be respected for what they wish.
After reading your thread, I just wanted to know where you stand in all this.
