Hm, should have stipulated that.
=========================

Deadline for reviews is 11:59pm EST on the 8th of June 2012, just so that last minute entries get the benefit of a few reviews.

as long as you like it that's all that matters, the criticisms are just an after thought.

Well we have a lot of random people coming out of the woodwork to give criticism haha. The 40 dollars is a real motivator. But hey, that's why we're here, right.

Okay that sounds good. I'm planning to hit up a review on every submission.

That's terrible to hear, but I guess haters are just going to hate.

Personally I haven't had any negative comments in the reviews on my piece, but I HAVE noticed a much larger number of "blam" 0-1 votes on the star rating counter. It is interesting that people seem to be annoyed by adult works, when they are easily (and in fact by default) filtered from view.

Yes, the matter of Adult works is extremely polarized on Newgrounds.

Some people will vote you down just for doing adult art.

Other people will vote you up for it.

Very few people approach adult art with a level-headed or purely clinical perspective.

It's actually not that bad, when considering the style. I would give it a 3.75, if I could.

a lot of the people critiquing, as I said, came straight out of the woodwork. Like these are members who have never been patron to the art portal before (some of them have 0 activity), who just appeared for this competition. And I guess they took "being critical" for being unforgiving. Some of the pieces submitted have some really unjustifiably low scores (<2). But hey, if you're advertising 40 bucks for reviews, this kind of turnout is inevitable.

TBH, I expected more household names in the review sections. Instead we got a handful of randoms. I've read some of the critiques and it's clear that many of the randoms are not from an art background because they ignore obvious flaws but generally critique petty things. Like the guy who wrote a whole lotta nothing on Orange's piece. A lot of petty observations that didn't really mean anything.

maybe we should set specific critique guidelines for this competition? Emphasis on "anatomy".

Ehh, it's a two sided coin. Like the art contest, I'd rather not have a say on what people would prefer to submit. But I would also like to encourage more critique than "nice bewbs", which was one of the targets for the contest.

Bonus (metaphorical) points for the guys who pick up on stuff like [content restricted due to author being a review judge]. Hopefully the better reviewers can lead by shining example.

Yeah I guess so. The critiques are just not as good as I thought they'd be. I expected people to pick apart the anatomy on my submission. But instead I was told the anatomy was good (which I disagree with, as I can see many flaws in my own work [ bridge of the nose, displaced hips ]) but rated down because the lineart was jagged in places. ._. I mean, come onnnn~ There seems to be a general lack of focus on things that matter.

Don't worry folks, there are still some days left for the reviews, I am sure some artists just take more time with their reviews. A proper critique needs more time to be typed than "nice bewbs" and additionally it requires some thinking too.

Also, I don't think the rules state that participating artists can't compete in the review part as well. For the former non-competition floods, it was even encouraged that the artists review each other.... or actually, it was the point of the flood activity to begin with, if I remember right.

I think your piece you posted on page one is damn awesome.

A lot going on in this pic and it reminds me of a H R Giger piece where what appears to be a hedge cut into the shape of a woman getting spitroasted.

While this is easier to make out what's happening and what everyone is doing, I still feel they are hidden beneath the mask of not having a face. I know it might be a work in progress and the lines on their faces there to help you with feature positioning later, but I like the effect it has on the piece.

Sort of like a masquerade sex party. I mean, we've ALL been to one of those right?

Right?

G F D;

That's kinda neat, though I keep getting distracted by the dark shadows between her legs.

I know it's shading or whatever but it totally makes me think of gaping vag.

I so sorry, it's just how I feel. I WANTED TO SEE THIS PIECE AS ARTISTIC AND "OOH LA LA" LIKE BUT NO, THANK YOU BRAIN.

Perhaps somehow get rid of the smallest shading circle? Then I feel it would look more classy.
