This is something that has been bothering me to know other peoples ideas over what Criticism is and it’s implications.
To me Criticism implies a review that can result in being bad or good:
- if I give a good review I give a “compliment”.
- if I give a bad review I tend to point the flaw and how to correct it or a “critique” so to speak of lack of more words in English.
The case that made me think of this:
I made a twitch account about 4 months ago because of a friend mine and I have been to art streams. And on one stream the head and body where bent 90 degree UNDER the clavicle bone, it was not even the neck bending. I pointed out this mistake while in the sketch phase and instantly I got persecuted by the mods of back seating in art and being threaten with time outs and more if I continued to speak. I instantly left the chat unfollowed and such because I don’t agree the least bit.
In my mind if I say “it is good” or I say “it is bad” it is all criticism and it all comes from the same source. And you can’t censor bad reviews if you want good reviews, because if you do you will not improve ever. You can make the rules yes but remaining stagnate is also an option I do not comply with. If i have to ask to critique I should have to ask to give compliments also, and that is never the case. Truth be told artists on Twitch swallow compliments like crazy but can’t handle the slightest hint of bad reviews.
But to each person I speak about this and this case each person gives me a different answer and a different perspective to this issue. What say you?
