PM an administrator or a moderator
for their opinion.Use IMGZOOM
This BBCode is a useful feature that will make critiquing pixel art much easier. Use it instead of the regular IMG tags.Post Constructively
When critiquing another's artwork, make sure to give valid criticism and advice. No flaming or insulting; while harsh comments are okay, be sure to include ways the artist can improve!
An example of a bad post vs. good, constructive feedback:
a bad example wrote:
your sprites suck you suck go jump in a ditch
a good example wrote:
your palette needs work, choose more contrasting colors and work on your lineart, right now it's terribly jagged and uneven
Note that if you can't take criticism, you really shouldn't be posting your sprites in the first place!
