Positivity by Leah-the-Red Positivity by Leah-the-Red
This saying was a bit of a play on this:

I found that very negative, especially the arguments behind it. If you don't mind a link intensive blog, you can read it all here: [link]

I made up the updated saying (IT RHYMES) and my friend typed it up for me.

Also please note:

:iconallthethingsplz: LINK ALL THE PARODIES!! :giggle: I drive the bandwagon. :iconawesomelurker: is mighty bull who pulls wagon.

EDIT Speaking of which, feel free to go through my gallery and comment or critique as you like. I don't mind at all!

EDIT 2 I can't thank everyone enough for all the faves and comments! Especially since it got to the front page! I've never had something do that before XD I can't thank everyone individually for all the faves, but I am replying to all the comments!

I did also check the box to make this critiqueable too! :meow:

Also about the comic sans- I had a word with my foxy friend and we agreed it should stay. It certainly highlights the words even if it highlights them in HATE.

All of this. Just all of this. Why wouldn't you agree with this , mang? I say that this is very true and I will give you a cookie for it. And you will enjoy the cookie. And everyone will be happy. And your thing shall be right. And people will agree with it. And I will finally stop using and so much , because and is very and and that's very bad. And other people think that too because ~ and `.

28 out of 32 deviants thought this was fair.

As much as I appreciate the parody- and believe me, I do! - I wish you would have kept the original typeface, which is Futura (with Bold variations).
It was the only good thing the original had going for it, and your typeface choice is a little hard to read in my opinion.

I'm also in a self-debate over your color choice, seeing as the original was a very muted, demure red and your color is a high-saturation, practically neon purple. As much as I wish you would have went with a velvety navy blue or olive green to more match the original, on the other hand I see a contrast at play: muted primary color to bright secondary. I suppose time will tell how other viewers feel about this.

As for the positive things, I do like your take on the original and your reformatting is nicely done, considering your removal of a few lines that would all but throw off the alignment in inexperienced hands. Your centering at the bottom is clean, sharp and even and the bar is at a good height, not too thin to stifle the text yet not too thick to overtake the design.

As for the message? Right on.

because those who don't are ignorant and think they're perfect.
It sometimes depends on how the critique is made. Although, sometimes, if a critique doesn't point out a good point, it may make the artist feel bad and then they get batshit crazy while defending themselves.
Sometimes people need to acknowledge their strong points so that they can keep the good and replace the flaws in their art.

That's very true, but a critique doesn't necessarily require to point out the good exactly. Isn't friendly critique of pointing out what can be improved and how good enough? I mean by saying it can be improved, isn't that something?

Yes, but some people can be sensitive, so I'm just explaining how it can be discouraging for them to see how badly they messed up. I know because I used to be like that and I'm a lot softer on them than I sometimes appear to be because I know how it feels to think "I mess up way too much" that's what make some people rabid on critiques. It's a defense reflex.
People have their own level of sensitivity on things. Personally, I started drawing with thoughts of suicide (art saved me), you never know what's going on in someone's life either, so stress can also explain savage behavior. Someone like that feels they're getting advice because they believe to be perceived as inferior.
Basically, my view of a perfect critique is composed of friendly advice with a pat on the back.

Sorry about the super-long reply, wanted it to be clear because I've had too many misunderstandings before.

You are making art to interest the OTHERS...
Leah-the-Red Featured By Owner May 18, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Hm? What do you mean?
Streled Featured By Owner May 19, 2012   Traditional Artist
Well, if you get noticed by some fans, you have to make them interested and some can have good ideas or know what's wrong.
Leah-the-Red Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That's true, you have a point.
Streled Featured By Owner May 29, 2012   Traditional Artist
Yeah, also doing the same thing again and again is very annoying.
