Stupidest criticism you got for your artwork:

"Why is she bald?"
"Why is he made of circles and rectangles and lines? Bodies don't look like that."
"Are you drawing something abstract?"

...in regards to a sketch in progress.

Oh, can I give a a suggestion, in case you're ever put in a position where you need to give some constructive criticism?

Don't ever say - "Oh, that's... yeah, that's... interesting." That's not what people want to hear.

I had a professor put his foot through one of my canvases because it was "utter ****" but he couldn't give me a reason why.

That's kind of funny. I'm imagining him just high-kicking a hole straight through it while it's still on the easel, then turning to you, his foot still jammed through it, and yelling "THIS IS UTTER SHIT!" in a voice kind of like Gordon Ramsay's.

"Why are her legs so short! Women are suppose to be six or seven heads tall!" Me "Well how many heads tall are pigmies?" The guy who had grabbed my drawing then said that he's an art student.

Once I've been criticized for not being realistic even though my style is based off various cartoons.

It wasn't meant to be realistic either, none of my stuff ever is.

I was once creating an image using Photoshop. I dragged a metal texture image onto the top layer of the canvas, and before I had time to apply a blend mode or mask, the person next to me said:

"What the hell? You ruined it! I liked it how it was before, it looks s*** now!"

Some people just don't get how digital art works. Funnily enough, those people always sit next to me.

I once drew a picture of a cat and got this response:

"Why does it have horns coming out of its face?"

"Those are whiskers."

While this isn't strictly a criticism, I am growing somewhat annoyed that half the portraits I draw evoke in one person the question "Is that you?"

At first I took it as an indication that I need to practice more variations of face shapes and facial features, but that doesn't seem to have been making a difference.

Once I got that I should stop drawing in manga style and comics in general, instead I should do those ultra-realistic s*** like everybody else does. Well I sent him to hell with these reminders:
  • I'm not doing it for making great looking drawings. I want to tell stories, and in this case just a tool.
  • Making graphic novel with ultra-realistic art would be an overkill in effort, and leaving no room for stylization.

Also I get some very bad words for using vectoral graphics editors (Inkscape, Corel DRAW), as with these I'm much faster and better, and I'm not as hard working as with papers and pencils.

In eighth grade, I had to make a small mosaic for art class. My mosaic was of a sun against a clear blue sky. While I was putting glass down (enough was finished, so one could look at it and easily identify it correctly), someone came up to me and said "Nice fish." -facepalm-
I'll stand and fight until the day they put me in the ground.

I once drew a near perfect Jack Frost, while a (now former) friend of mine drew a terrible one, so HE took the credit for my drawing and acted like his was mine and criticized "my" art. T_T

For thread revival, I suppose I'll share another stupid criticism I got.

This was a couple of years back when all the students in my class got a free period to just draw on the board, so I drew one of the ghosts from Pac-Man. I started with the eyes, then the girl standing next to me must've thought they were supposed to be breasts because she said "Oh my God!" and erased it as quickly as possible. She didn't even bother to get an eraser, she just wiped it with her hands! She was slightly peeved and was like, "Did you draw that?" I told her I did, and asked, "Do you have a problem with floating eyes or something?" "that's what they were supposed to be?"

I never realized how funny this situation was until now.[lol]

Not a criticism exactly but a stupid response in general?

The comic I had up for critique had implied sexual assault and after that was explained a guy was like "See this is why I don't want to go to prison."

My professor immediately said no to that, but still. Can we go back to people joking about dead babies in my comics? I preferred that.

"So are they lesbians?'' - In regards to a drawing of two girls standing by each other with one of the girls placing her hand on the other's shoulder and blushing. Oh and they have hearts on their shoulders.

Gee. I don't know. Maybe they're just very friendly.

...It was the same guy in my class too. Hm.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
