Maurice Sendak the amazing writer and illustrator that made Where the wild things are has died today at age 83. May he rest in peace :(

Why is it that the artists who tend to do adult-oriented work tend to have pretty poor anatomy?

That's not a bad feature although I really am somebody who uses all aspects of Newgrounds so it'll be hard for me to think of an order. Art near the top though.

It's because artists who tend to do adult-oriented work only focus on boobs and vagina and have no concept about the other parts of the human body.

It's strange because I've seen users who vote highly on some adult artwork (despite poor anatomy) being very nitpicky about their reviews on non-adult artwork. Like a review on an adult piece would be "wow this is great 5 stars" and a review on a non-adult work would be "hmm...this is ok [insert list of minor nitpicks] 2 stars". It seems like many of our horndog users suddenly evolve into "art scholars" when tits aren't present. But when tits are present they couldn't care less about the fundamentals.

@Cypress - Pretty much, yeah. People come for the tits, but when they can't get their fix, they decide to get all shitty. It's just a major flaw because of all the horny pervy shitheads out there.

@Bilalz - While Nitrome's games having ads does bother me a bit, I totally understand it though. Nitrome has to run it's own website, and hosting a fully fledged website isn't cheap, so you need funding however you can get it. The fact that someone would rate a game poorly based on that fact is just another turd in the toilet bowl of society.

Yup, games just get a shit score just cause "O mai god, it wun't loadz!11!" or " Fix da lagzoor!!!". People tend to think that it is game's fault that it lags or that it doesn't load, instead of trying to figure out what's wrong and try to fix it

In short... there are people out there who are morons.

people make games for "free" for others to play for "free"... ad revenue is a way of SOME income, yes its annoying, but it isn't going to kill you to wait that extra 5 seconds is it?

AndEeX clearly has no concept of time it takes to make games nor the understand of greater things in the world...

but rating down a game because it has ad's?!... all films at cinemas would be rated 0 because of the ad's... all TV shows would be rated 0 because of the ad's... basicly every bloody website has ad's... its becoming a bigger part of the online world because its effective advertising.

i just wished they were all muted unless you clicked a button for music/sound.

At least the ads are mutable, better than having no control at all.

It's really a shame because they give truly bad advice to truly good artists and don't give any constructive advice to generally mediocre artists. This creates a bunch of bad artists who are far too comfortable with their skill level. I told some guy earlier that his anatomy was poor and he pissed his pants over it like I just killed his mom or something.

I guess what I mean to say is: KEEP RAISING THE BAR. If you think it's within reach, it's not high enough.

In my experience most mediocre artist's dont have the ability to take critique, they take it personal.
So now im only giving critique to people who are actually asking for it, or who are good enough to take it imo.
Its stupid, but i dont want a bunch of shitty artists flaming and down voting me.

I remember when I wasn't that great of an artist I used to be a shit head when it came to critiques.

But I think people are shit heads about it when they aren't that good because you have to be really confident in yourself to get from making bad art to anything good.

Like at the start point it's more about drawing as much as possible verses drawing intelligently, and getting any negative response only makes them want to draw less; so they denounce/ignore it as much as they can and move on. Eventually though they'll hit a point where they are able to hate there own art, and can judge it as if they didn't make it, and at that point critiques are much easier to handle because they can agree with them.

Or at least that's how I think of it.

Normally, I would say you're right, but with mediocre artists getting slaps on the ass, the first negative review they get, they piss up a storm and think that it's a lie.
People need to stop giving ego boosts and start being hard.

"No offense, but I really don't care. 90% of the feedback I get from my viewers (on DA, not here, cause I've been here just 3 days) is very possitive. I'm happy with the skills I had aquired without having formally studied anatomy even one (all I do is 100% self taught), and I'll just keep improving."

Haha, I don't know what to comment on: The 90% positive feedback from DA, which clearly nourished the ego but not the work, or the self-taught argument used as a way to avoid studying anatomy.

Yeah seriously. I don't think he really understands who his audience is. Also the fact that he considers responses like "OMG it's so hot" (actual review) as actual "feedback" is crazy.

And yeah x-factor, you make a good point. I think it's healthy for someone to hate their own work to some extent. There's not a day that passes where I don't look at my art and think: "this, this and this is wrong"

And building on another one of your points: yes, there is a certain skill threshold under which an artist will benefit more from simply practicing than receiving detailed critiques. It's that "learning stage" that most of us are stuck in for years before we become competent (hell, I wasn't competent before 2011). For example, you wouldn't write a detailed critique on a crayon drawing by a grade schooler--it wouldn't make sense to. I usually don't leave reviews like "the anatomy is poor", but I would have to re-draw the entire pic or offer references to point out every single mistake. And I'm a guy who usually gives rather detailed reviews, too. But in this case, especially one where the artist displays consistent anatomy flaws in all of his work, it would not have helped at all.

We could run an "M and A Monday", a one-off Friday Flood, to get people thinking about drawing and reviewing anatomy.

Plus prizes, say Top 2 get a Penciorn.

I love stop motion work. I think it's a severely under appreciated art form, especially nowadays.
