Constructive Criticism: Share Your Work

Constructive Criticism

Starting a little experiment here! Every week I get lots of emails asking for feedback on work and it’s often overwhelming and quite difficult to get through them all. The Monthly Reader Submissions posts exist for this very reason (so if you want to submit work please continue to share your work through these posts).

I wanted to try out a slightly different post here, dedicated to providing people with some constructive criticism and feedback on the things they’re making. If you’re brave enough to share an image and link of your work below I will try to provide you with some feedback but also, and more importantly (because there’s only one of me), I’d like to invite other readers to give some polite, helpful, insightful comments to those submitting as well! It’s really hard to step outside yourself and see your own work with fresh eyes, and having a bunch of different sets of eyes provide feedback may help you improve.

Ideally the feedback is honest and direct (but not mean), and people in this community can actually spur each other onto to create stronger work. I realise this is a delicate balance to strike especially on the Internet so we’ll see how it goes.

To submit work or provide feedback open up the full post (either by clicking on the post title, the image above or the link at the bottom) and scroll down to the comments section. Please read the guidelines below!

 

Guidelines:

1. If you share your own work here, please also leave some feedback for others that have posted work. It helps the community!

2. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

3. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough. This is not about curation, it’s the way our commenting system is setup.

4. If you are providing feedback for someone please remember: Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. The purpose of constructive criticism is to improve the outcome. (via)
