Criticism Isn't Trolling by genkistamps Criticism Isn't Trolling by genkistamps
Why do so many artists assume that, since nobody can find anything wrong with their perfect art, that all criticism is trolling? Sparkledog artists are very guilty of this.

If you don't want criticism; SAY SO. We can't read your fucking mind! By putting it up publicly, we assume you want criticism!

And if you get critiqued, don't pull the troll card. Just say you didn't want it, but thank them for their time, and amend your artist description.

This stamp makes me really happy. Also, I wish people would critique or even just flat out criticize my art more. (As long as they're specific) It's helpful.

Another thing that people seem to automatically think is trolling:
When they publicly announce their own opinion or put up a poll about something, and then someone comments with a drastically different view.
smh Other people can have opinions too without being a troll.

I agree. :nod: Constructive criticism is what helps artists do what they can do to improve. There's a BIG difference between criticism and flat-out insults.

the inverse is also true
trolling does not equal criticism

saying "yu suck" ten times over is not criticism at any point

The problem is that too many deviantart users think too much of themselves. There to use to getting high praise and good short comments. Criticism of any kind from someone they don't know (they let there friends off the hook) pointing out there mistakes and it gets them so mad and offended.
