Critique-able

About : Critiques are given out to any who ask :) (though it is a bit of a wait). Right now I am critiquing through a thread in the Thumbshare Forum, direct requests, and as a part of two projects for ProjectComment.

Things for the group get highest priority, the next being direct requests, after that, influx from the thread.

Wait : 30 days (estimate)
This is the best guess at the time between requesting a critique and its delivery. If the critique is for a group it will be delivered in time according to the rules of that project.

How-To :
  • To request a critique simply contact me with the piece you would like critiqued (you can use the button at the end of the box to send a note) (consider asking through a group or project if the piece in question meets the criteria). I offer gallery critiques as well, but they are on a longer delay - you may also ask that I choose a piece (an "open" critique). Please only one request per user at a time. Follow up on a piece happens independent of the list.
  • To change a piece simply contact me with the alteration and I will update the list accordingly.


ProjectComment
Commenter System + 52 Week Challenge

"Project Comment is a project that features the generally obscured and underappreciated artists and their art in regular news articles. Our objective is to recognise deviants who deserve more recognition and to feature deviations with less than 10 original comments." - 3wyl

Project : Commenters System
Media (for ziinyu) : Digital Art, Traditional Art, Designs & Interfaces, Cartoons & Comics

The primary structure functions as a way of giving constructive comments/criticism to unseen artwork. The artists are able to request comments from critics based on their media of choice (with multiple critics for each medium). For more information on the project (including guidelines on how to request a comment from myself and other users in different media) please visit the above link.

Project : 52 Week Project
Theme : PASSION (#17)

Another project through the group, this also gives comments but based on deviation theme rather than media. Comments cannot be requested for this project, it is up to the selection of the critics (just ask for comments through the Commenter System).

Spirit Day! Say hello to visibility.

Fri Oct 19, 2012, 5:18 PM
Spirit day! You know what that means!

Actually, let's talk about that a little bit, because you do know what that means - and that's kind of amazing. One of the words that used to commonly categorize those of us in the LGBT community was invisible. It was something to hide, to be scared and ashamed of. If you didn't, if you expressed the simple freedom of being yourself, you were judged and punished in the face of an unaccepting society. All this silence had a momentum. The atmosphere of oppression carried with it kept an emotional hold on anyone who didn't identify with the sexual norm.

We silenced ourselves. From ourselves.

When you can't even vocalize your thoughts and ideas internally, you have no way of discovering your own identity. You remain isolated, completely - from the rest of the world. How can you question your sexuality when the culture around you is willfully complacent in acting as if people like you don't exist?

That silence has thankfully begun to lift. People are talking, on all sides of this divide. The wall separating the LGBT community from society at large is being torn down from both sides. We are becoming visible to each other.

That's why things like Spirit Day, and GSA's, and awareness programs are so important. They aren't big political agendas (though that does come into play, and importantly so) - rather, they are cultural movements. They don't target individuals or governments, they spread a message to everyone. They form a community in and of themselves and that is amazingly powerful.



I remember the first time I saw the purple banner on deviantART when they officially took part in the first spirit day. It came to existence as a remembrance and awareness movement following a series of bullying-related suicides. hq posted a site wide blog honoring spirit day, that soon became the most favorited blog in the history of the site.

I don't know if you can understand (though I hope you'll try) how AMAZING that felt. To see a community of friends and peers come together to recognize something that you have been hiding even from yourself? To feel connected - supported by people I've never met? It was phenomenal.

And we did that.

So, today (and everyday): Talk to people! Reach out! Open up! Communicate! Spread the word and share the spirit!
