[5/9/2013 1:18:54 PM] GunZet: I've seen, and I can agree on some points, but others I think are highly skewed.
Such as views and opinions being sugarcoated, views can also be covered in spiders and coffee, which may be yours.
a lot of times the most brutal opinion isn't the truth, it's not the best, sometimes they don't even make sense, and often come from either the highest tier of artists, or the lowest, the ones coming from the higher tier considered more valid due to their skill level, when infact those artists may just want to keep you where you're at rather than build you up.
[5/9/2013 1:19:48 PM] GunZet: The best brutal opinion is constructive criticism, something all artists can agree on. It not only tells you what you need to correct and work on, but it doesn't completely crush an artist at the same time, and it is often the truth. I think you're biased due to the community you hang around with, the same way MT may be biased on 'sugarcoating' things.

How should I word that he should be focusing more on studies then drawing oc's, then
[5/9/2013 1:25:20 PM] GunZet: Technically you shouldn't, because it all depends on what the artist wants to do. What if Matt suddenly decided to master cubism? Would you tell him he needs to work on his anatomy more, in comparison to what Pablo Picasso was doing? I wouldn't think so.
Just let him keep doing what he's doing if he seems content with where he's at.
BUT as everyone is entiteld to speak their opinion, you could just tell him simply what you think are the strengths and weaknesses in his figures, currently, rather than how long he's been utilizing a certain style or such. He has plenty of time to improve at his own pace, but it's his decision truly.
