If you would like critique on an artwork of yours, post a link and I'd be happy to do so : )  (Conditions: If I have time. If I'm even in the U.S...)

I got the idea from brocko18 who happens to be trying out tribal and is pretty good at it! (check it out!) I'm flattered that people have actually thought my tribal tutorial to be helpful. If I could inspire just one person to pick up a pencil, that would make my day!

But yeah, I don't do the 'DA Critique' thing anymore (I've only written one using that) because I don't like limiting myself with that star rating system.  

I won't RATE your art.
How could I possibly rate any art other than my own?

I WILL honestly tell you what I think of it, what I think can be improved etc.  The words "I think" imply that it is all opinion, which I think is what critiques are anyways. Glorified (and hopefully helpful) opinions.

Yup.  If you want, link me to your tribals, photos, sketches......
PREFERABLY NOT anime/manga style drawings. Nothing wrong with them; just I personally don't have much experience in that subject matter so I won't have much to say. It would be like asking me about cars.

But otherwise, I should be the one thanking the people who ask for critiques, because I am honored that you would like to hear my opinion. I hope what I have to say is helpful : )

Oo, and one more thing.  I apologize if I don't +watch you.  In the three years or more I've been on DA I only watch.... :checks:... 2 people at the moment. There are SO MANY artists with eye popping art out there and it is always nice to stumble upon their works every now and then; but even if you trained under Picasso and have ONEBAJILLION pageviews, chances are I still wouldn't be interested in watching you.
So please don't take it personally.

I actually got the idea to try it after I won your christmas raffle. [link] I dont think its very Tribal like, not abstract enough, but over all Im really happy with how it turned out and Id be absolutely ecstatic to get some feedback from someone with talent in the feild such as yourself. ;) If you dont have time, thats cool too, I still really appreciate it.

This is a great opportunity, thanks for offering it.

Critique:

"This is just completely unrealistic. I mean, that thing's TAILS have FIRE in them. And it has NINE of them. Plus they're so pointy they make my eyes bleed.
On the plus side, the colors are very nice."

I tried usng the original ninetails colors, but there wasnt much of a fiery color so i added that in there. I'm glad this wasnt a commision piece you did.

Not only do I find another amazing artist, but my inspiration is offering critiques!
It's like Christmas in July~

As for the critiquing; I would be so much more than thankful if you would critique this [link]

Thanks a bunch in advance~

As for your lines: I love them. They completely fit your style of tribal. If they really bug you, you can get Inkscape and just vector over your originals. It's a little confusing at first, but is easily accustomed to. After they've been vectored you can apply gradients, change sizes, and all sorts of funnzies.


Just thought I'd say that, after all the wonderful complements and advice I got from you~

It would probably make my life 10x easier if I just went and learned vectors... And I've tried before but I guess because I don't own a program with the vector tool, and most of all because of my laziness, people will just have to get used to the hand drawn crumbly bits in my art ; )

Thanks for this, I'm glad to help : )

Thank you! Was this journal because of me (lol)? Like I said, I'm so very grateful for you opinions on my tribals, only because your work was my inspiration. If I do any more good ones, I might hit you up for a comment or two :3

I also hope that you'll do some more tribals soon! I can't wait to see them :D

ALSO, since I just found out you're a major Zelda fan, I was considering doing a tribal of something from Twilight Princess (since a lot of the creatures and such already look very tribal-y). What do you think?

:iconcanyx:
Canyx Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
I think that is a BRILL idea. Might even do a few myself now that you've gotten me into the LoZ mood. (I purposefully don't pick up those games when I'm at home because I know I'll still be playing them 5 hours later...)

I LOVE the creatures/species in that world and many of them would make awesome tribals. Dondongos, gorons, zoras, moblins...

Anything but Likelike's really. (hahaa, jk. sort of)

Haha, yeah, I don't like those things either. I was actually thinking (as creepy/scary as they are) the weird, dreadlocks-creature things from the twilight would make some cool tribal designs.

:D I'm so trying that now
