      How to properly CnC artwork!

      Now nothing bothers me more then when people ask for CnC and someone say's "10/10 looks good!" Ok let's face it, that is NOT CnC.

      Here is the definition of CnC- "CnC means 'Critique and Comment'. CNC isn't rating some ones siganture 1-10, or saying it looks cool or nice. When some one ask for CNC they don't get nothing off "ratings". When GFX Artist ask for CNC they want to see how you feel about it ,and what you think can improve the tag(signature)."

      Now of course I dont want to say new artist shouldn't CnC but you should know some things about GFX before posting CnC. You should tell them what you like, colors, text, rendering, etc. You should then tell them some flaws, odd placement, no depth, bad blending, etc. Then tell them how to correct these flaws, use brighter colors, take away something, etc.

      If you dont know the terms we artist use you should check out this awesome guide or this awesome guide! It will help you help others and it will also make you a better GFX'er! So PLEASE make sure you give good CnC and not just "10/10".

      SUGAR COATING HELPS NO ONE!

      Yes, I know this bothers some people. I agree that when someone CnC's they should try their best to help the artist improve.(:

      Re: How to properly CnC artwork!

      Amen.
      Though it does bother me when people comment on CnC posts saying things like "This doesn't look right." It's quite obvious that when an artist asks for CnC they know something is wrong with it, otherwise they'd just want ratings. Not just for GFX artists but also traditional artists, I may add. If you're going to CnC a drawing of person or an animal, have an idea about anatomy first.
      The rule for me is always tell them how to fix certain parts of the piece, not just what. Details, details!

      "happiness is only real when shared."

      Re: How to properly CnC artwork!

      Yes i agree and when stuff like that happens i think people just do it for the post. You have to face it that most people on this site are kids and they need much improvement before they become some sort of master artist that will pop out masterpieces.

      p.s. my dog just walked all over one of my drawings T-T but luckly just a sketch of the bigger picture

      Re: How to properly CnC artwork!

      Thank you!
      I don't mind people telling me that they like my art, but please tell me exactly what you like so I know what I'm doing right. When I'm doing something wrong, I like to know how to fix it. ^^
      So thanks for making this post!

      Re: How to properly CnC artwork!

      I feel we need Mods to remove those kinds of posts. They don't help at all, and don't CnC, so they basically fall in the category of Spam. (Or are we able to report these already?)

      Re: How to properly CnC artwork!

      GRACIAS!
      I like to CnC just the way I would like to be CnCed. I mean, it's nice to tell an artist that you like the piece of art but if the artist is asking for CnC is for a reason..... We need to know what we did wrong to improve it.

      I would love to find a way to fix this poor CnCing virus....
