The Official-For-Now "How Does This Look??!?" Thread
How to use this thread:
This thread is for any creator/artist who is experimenting with new styles, new programs, new brushes, and anything else artistically that they might want a second opinion on from their fellow creators, whether you're starting a new comic, or switching styles in your currently running comics, or just trying to decide which outfit looks better on your character.
Pictures speak louder than words! Posts are recommended to have a "before" and "after" (OR a "picture A, picture B" picture included, for easier comparison, or as many samples as you can provide so people can give you a clear analysis and opinion. Don't be afraid to share result sketches either if you end up changing your design! (especially if we helped you out with it; we'd love to see the final results!)
If you're not comparing one piece with another, and just one some feedback on one piece of art, then please upload the image so we can see it and give you our feedback.
Be sure to express your opinions clearly, concisely, and kindly. If you think Picture A looks better than Picture B, state why in a respectful manner, but remember that everything's subjective, and no one is obligated to agree with you. Don't be unnecessarily hostile or rude when expressing your opinions, either.
Ex. "I think the coloring works a lot better here than it does there because of these following reasons!"
works a lot better than . . .
"i like this better because it's better and the other one looks like garbage."
Try your hardest to include some reasons other than "I like it more". Elaborate on why, whether it's the style or the color choice, or whatever reason it may be. It helps the creator pinpoint what they can fix too if they feel it needs fixing!
Creators, remember that your choice is final. When sharing comparisons and having a hard time deciding, take people's feedback into account, but don't feel obligated to picking one or the other just because more people side with one. At the end of the day, it's still your decision, and it's still your comic.
Do not post if you're already set on your decision. If you're just looking for validation in your decision, then ask people for their opinion on the design you're sure of, see if there's anything that needs fixing. But don't come into this thread and ask for people's opinions and then deliberately argue and fight with anyone who happens to disagree with you. If you aren't looking for varied feedback and opinions that don't line up with your own, don't come in asking for it.
That's pretty much it! Hope we can get lots of use out of this thread!
