Lol I'm horrible with handling critiques. I thought I could take it when I showed my art teacher one of my favourite designs and he said he saw the design before and I should do something more unique/different. He also offered suggestions too.

I know I know, that is actually a pretty good constructive critique and I didn't blow up in his face, but my heart didn't handle it well ;;

Oh well, I know I can design much better and next time I see him, he'll be given a LOT of designs to look at >____> #determined

I know the feeling

I used to hate taking critique, absolutely despised it! so much so I'd get hate for it 

But now I'm handling it a lot better because I've told myself it's okay, it's to help me improve and that's okay!!

For me, critiques just set off a mini volcano inside me and push me to get a pencil and paper right after hearing/reading the critique to try and prove them wrong X'D
I really want to learn to respond to critiques in a more positive way since I'm going to have to hear them for the rest of my life as an artist OTL

yeah XD it's just trying to tell yourself "okay, I'm getting a critique, just listen closely and take it to heart don't take it offensively. Alright, lets see what I can do better! Because I know I can!"
it helps a lot if you struggle with accepting critique ovo/ I tell myself this often.

My parents call me weird for not liking critiques :'D
I mean, I take them and put them to heart but it's just not as easy for me ;;

Critique can be hard to take, constructive or not.

It's appreciated greatly by a lot of artists and really helps them to improve, but I feel like it still hurts most people that have something they love poked and picked apart to every last detail.

It's just hard because as an artist, your love is your art and to have someone critique that can be hard to hear.

But take that guys critique and run with it, show him tons of amazing designs and ask him for critique again when you do. You will always improve by doing this.

And so far, i think your adopts and designs are crazy cool and so unique! Good job. <3

At the end of the day, no ones art is perfect and everyone has their own style. We all just have to improve in every way we can and draw things we love. And critique is good, but don't let it be the deciding vote in what kind of art you make. ^-^

I'm really happy you think that way about my designs! >v< I love doing unique designs that are as different as possible from each other, which is kinda why I can't create a "Closed Species" because that would mean each design has to be quite similar XP
Thank you so much for this nice comment! ;v; It really made me feel better yesterday <333 //hugs u
