The purpose of this group is critique, pure and simple. Please do not post images to this group. The sole purpose of this group is for critiques, not image promotion.
Courtesy and respect are required. Those being disrespectful, be it the person asking for critique or giving it, will be removed. There will be no warnings.
If you wish to have your an image critiqued please follow these instructions:
A. Try to critique a few images yourself first. This forum works only if those who request critiques also try to provide critiques. If you would like 10 people to respond to a critique request, try to respond to 10 critiques first. More or less. In other words, this is a give and take, not a take and take.
B. After you've read and done a few critiques, ask for a critique:
1. Go to group discussions.
2.Click on Post A New Topic Add a title to the name of your discussion (preferably the name of your art piece) and an image link (not an image upload) from your gallery to identify which piece is being submitted for evaluation.
When you ask for a critique, try to be specific with your request.
EXAMPLE: What do you do think of this composition? Do you think the colors work well together? Can you see a way for me to improve this image?
(Check previous threads for references)
3. Don't post more than one image in a discussion unless it's for comparison between two versions of the same image.
4. Wait for feedback. It varies in time and participation.
Feedback is honest. If it's a poorly done piece of work, people are going to say it. If it's well done, people will say it. This isn't a group for ego stroking, it's meant to improve work.
Thank you for your participation in the Raw Critique group. Again, please be sure to also visit other threads and offer your feedback to other artists. This group is about being helpful to each other, and I want to be sure that it remains a give and take...not become a take and take.
DO NOT POST YOUR IMAGES TO THE GROUP. (this is not a promotion group) Images featured are randomly chosen feature showcases of artists in the group.
Isabella F Abbie Shores is this month's featured artist. Congratulations Abbie!
In case you are wondering about the identity of 'Frank Speaking', that's an alter-ego for the dual administrators of the group: Founder Angelina Vick and assistant admin Gregory Scott.
