Art Critique

5


5 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will give you a thoroughly constructive artwork criticism. The only way any of us get better is with critique. I'm interested in trading you critique of my work too. Critique can be 3d models, environments, animations. Any 2d image, caricature, color, monochromatic, and even sketches.

1. First, send me a link to your artwork and tell me any additional information you would like me to have.
2. Tell me what method of critique you would prefer, video or text description regarding the work as is, and if you would like advice regarding how to improve.
3. I give you critique based on my perception of your work.

It is important that critique never be personal. We aren't talking about the artist's value as a person; we are merely discussing improvements in technique and understanding of artistic principles. This is how we get better.

Training & Qualifications


I'm an artist with formal art training from an early age through college. It's natural to be sensitive to critique when you're young, and I can admit I cried as a budding artist at a particularly harsh critique. Do not fear, I will not say "There's nothing good about it." It is not constructive.

I've taught artists at the college level for two years at Full Sail University. I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Animation, and I've taken courses at Kansas City Art Institute. I'm always creating artwork. I'm passionate about helping develop others' talents. Critique can even help the person giving it get better. Like Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Melissa Baldwin

I'm passionate about making things. I'm an artist. I sculpt, sew, draw, graphic design, paint, and animate. Drawing is number one. I'm always drawing and I expect to draw for the rest of my life. My s...tyle is flexible, but I love cute stuff! My style shifts over time, but artists seem to eternally strive to be better. I recently started an online storefront for my artwork. I'm really excited to start sharing my work with a wider audience. I grew up as an army brat, so I have lived in a million places. People can be different from place to place, but what we want from life is the same; a happy home life, good health, and to feel appreciated for our efforts. Diversity and being different is invaluable. The way educated and worldly people are different is that experiencing other cultures isn't just on a screen, it's the norm. I'm half-Filipino and half-English. I think that's why I drink a lot of tea and enjoy being near the ocean. I'm interested in Japanese language and Kawaii lifestyle. My goal is to fill my world with cute! show more
