Critmas: results!

Wed Jan 9, 2013, 5:48 AM

Critique is something we all desire- its why most people are on dA. We want feedback on our work- some of us just to validate ourselves, others for improvement tips and others who are aiming for move their work on and want genuine suggestions to assist with that.

That is quite a demanding request.

Fortunately, there are people out there who do take their time to look at work, take the time to review, respond and offer this critique. And writing a critique is time consuming, even more so when you’re writing several. Sometimes I think that people forget that, which is why Critmas has a message not just about giving critique out for prizes, but to thank those who do offer that free time to help others with their work. 

We can often be quite selfish, expecting critique from others but aren’t willing to give back. Even if you took the time to challenge yourself and write one a week, you will reap the benefits.

Anyhow enough of the lecture; let’s see the results!

 

The following amazing deviants completed the challenge:

Quick question, as far as prizes go are we meant to get in contact with those who say they're going to give feature/critiques etc, or do we wait for them to get into contact with us?

Thanks for this opportunity anyhow! =D
(I'll see you again next year)

What a great roster of deviants taking part in "Critmas," and what fabulous prizes!
I've been doing the #CRLiterature "Daily Deviations Drive" and because right now I have an eye infection that makes my vision blurry most of the time (the med does that) I didn't do lit crit. Darn it. But actually it's okay. Some of my work received wonderful lit crit during this contest. Thanks to you all, and :iconcongratulationplz:
