Our twentieth edition of reviewing things that have happened in the previous month and what we have planned for you all this month! We will be announcing the twentieth commenter to receive our comment award, as well as showcasing the most active and constructive commenters of our projects!

May Highlights


If you have suggestions for people to be featured, workshop ideas or questions to ask to our members, send us a note!

Project Comment Award


DoubleDandE is the recipient of our twentieth ProjectComment Award, Golden Words! A huge supporter of ProjectComment, one can appreciate DoubleDandE's magnanimous efforts through the many projects he takes part in. Not only is he a fantastic commenter, we are lucky to have him as an admin in the group! Time and time again, DoubleDandE helps others in their art and more. It is with great pleasure that we award June's Award to him, congratulations!


A huge thank you to the talented UszatyArbuz for creating this award for ProjectComment! :heart:

Admin Pick - Comment of the Month


Tuntalm chooses TeamStormbow's comment as June's Comment of the Month! The comment perfectly depicts how to constructively support an artist using impressions. The fact TeamStormbow links the piece to a Van Gogh's painting helps illustrate the vibe they get in front of the symbolism of the artwork. Moreover, TeamStormbow does not hesitate to mention their doubts and questions regarding the piece, and TeamStormbow tries to leave useful suggestions even if they don't have all the information they would normally need!

Congratulations to Wrenfall for being last month's most active and constructive commenter!

War Paint by Wrenfall ~Daintily
she spread her wings
and leaped from
place
to place.
She only stopped when she was alone.
Most people thought she was
an angel
a goddess
some
being of grace
who could never die.
She thought they were wrong
but they weren’t.
She had lived many times before.
The feather in the hand of the poet,
the light in the artist’s eye,
the beating measure in the heart of every pianist and dancer.
She came with the scent of spring flowers,
and when she left, she took the autumn leaves with her.
But beneath her skin
a girl
who had only been born once.
A little bird who had only just flown the nest
a creature
fragile
and desperate
with holes
and cracks
creases
and bruises.
Broken teeth and bitter memories
of a father who was never there when she needed him.
This didn’t matter
because the artists only paint what they want to see
the poets, the musicians, the dancers
but they aren’t to blame
they’re all just the same
rainy days
in summer.
Woman Portrait Study, from imagination by Wrenfall

Congratulations to VKA3 for being the most active and constructive commenter!

Black Button GlassesI was walking down the street
It was drizzling slightly
The weather was cold and muggy
As I walked down the street this night
The streetlights started to flicker
The streets began to have bizarre looking shadows
Shadows that seemed to move by themselves
I began to wish that I could be somewhere else
Almost anywhere else
I slowed down paying careful attention to the shadows
And the dark nebulous patches in the buildings that shivered around me
It seemed as if something could jump ot at me at any moment
It started to get darker and darker
It seemed as if I was doomed
Then as it was almost pitch black
I felt a hand on my shoulder
I jumped and screamed
A little man was behind me
He said he was sorry he startled me
He said he was creeped out by the flickering lights
He asked me if he could travel with me
I didn't want to be alone, I said yes
The lights suddenly stopped flickering
And the rain got heavier
I looked at the odd little man
He was a little taller than a dwarf
He had cold clammy p

We hope that the artist will pass on the kindness and give a constructive comment to another member. Without your comment, we may not be able to hope at all.

Admin Pick - Comment of the Month


Mythiril chooses phantom-inker's comment as May's Comment of the Month! This comment was on a piece in No Constructive Comments. Not many people go to the limits phantom-inker went: they explained everything thoroughly and provided great feedback for the piece. It's also a great effort, because not many are willing to go through long chapters to begin with.

It has been a whileIt has been a while, my friend.
How have you been?
Life has changed so much since you've been gone.
Do you remember what you said to me,
Five years ago,
When I last held your hand in mine?
"Don't miss me."
I'm sorry to have disappointed you.
Do you see the sky from where you are?
Are you watching the same fiery sunset?
Are you thinking about our time together,
When you used to knock on my head
Whenever I compared the sky to your hair?
Do you remember me?
Life is not the same. I am not the same.
I see you wherever I go.
I jump at the screech of tires.
And I remember the blank stare in your eyes.
"Don't miss me."
How can I not?
I have tried and failed so many times
That I have stopped trying altogether.
You know I have.
I think I saw you, that one time.
You didn't look like an angel at all.
"I told you not to miss me," you laughed.
But you were dead serious.
I'll try not to miss you my friend,
But you know I can't guarantee that.
Even now that my life is starting to make sense.
You'll al

A Tip and Final Word!


:lightbulb: Explain and elaborate on your points! When writing a constructive comment, make sure you've included everything that stands out to you, and provide some extra guidance with the why and the how!

We would like to thank everyone who has given a constructive comment in the past month. It takes time, effort and more, but every constructive comment you make helps a member of DeviantArt, a fellow artist who may or may not be in a similar position to you. We hope that the artist will pass on the kindness and give a constructive comment to another member. Without your comment, we may not be able to hope at all.

ProjectComment is a group that provides Guaranteed & Constructive comments for the DeviantArt community. Our mission is to encourage the development of a culture of exchanging constructive comments within the DeviantArt community, for the benefit of all its members!

As many of our members have discovered, there is great opportunity for improvement in both giving and receiving comments! This feature will spotlight a few of the amazing members of ProjectComment for an entire month: every week they will answer a different question to showcase their experience with giving and receiving comments and how that has improved their experiences as artists and in the DeviantArt community in general. :heart:

How can ProjectComment members improve the feedback they give?


:icondviouslecunning: ~ dviouslecunning
Well, I personally look at comments from more experienced artists to help with my commenting. Sometimes I feel I'm being too repetitive or have trouble explaining how an image can be improved, and looking at other comments for reference has helped me make mine more informative and useful.

I would also suggest commenting on works you're not familiar with, such as photography or literature. Even if you're not experienced in those types of mediums, commenting as a viewer/reader can be very helpful to the artist.

:iconfralea: ~ fralea
I find that I really appreciate it when commenters take the time to take a quick glance at your gallery and the other comments that have already been given (if any). Getting the same advice multiple times can sometimes help you realize that something really is a problem, but if more than 1-3 people say the same thing (especially without additional points) it can be a little frustrating and discouraging.

Additionally, by looking at the users other recent pieces the commenter can comment on recurring problems that might show up in your entire body of work. I find this especially helpful.

:iconrieile: ~ RiEile
I feel that people usually tend to comment on something within their field of expertise (traditional artists comment on traditional art etc.). It is easier to comment on something that is close to your own art, as you can address all sorts of technical questions, but sometimes I feel that a thoughtful comment "from the outside" provides a very valuable perspective.

I prefer when people describe their general impression of the idea behind the piece (although I do not always do that, I confess), this helps to understand whether you have succeeded in conveying (at least something) to your viewers or you art is a total mess clear only to you (or anywhere in between, as it usually is).

:iconvikfrachris: ~ vikfrachris
Don't forget to give critique! It's great to tell artists what you like about their work, but try to add in what they could do better as well.

ProjectComment has some great guides for improving your critiques if you're struggling. :)


Commenter Bios and Art


dviouslecunning - Hello, my name is Angie, and like many here on DA, I'm an aspiring artist, seeking to improve and expand my artistic skills. I mostly specialize in digital and traditional artwork, and sometimes dabble in writing.



fralea - In late 2013 I really started working on learning digital art. For most of my life before that I was only really interested in doing traditional. I started posting on DA in April 2014 and have been focusing on improving at digital semi-realism since then.



RiEile - My goal is to paint artificial or natural structures with a feel of presence to them.



vikfrachris - Hi there! I'm vikfrachris, a Norwegian would-be comic artist. I love helping people and watching them improve, which is why I'm a part of ProjectComment :)

Check out our first article of the series: Comments Received!


How has providing comments to others helped you to improve your own art? How has it changed your experience here at DeviantArt?


:icondviouslecunning: ~ dviouslecunning
Well for one thing, it made me bother with DeviantArt again. For a long time I was frustrated with this site for the lack of feedback in general, and many groups that were comment-oriented would either go dead or were managed poorly. No matter how often I commented, I would barely get anything in return, so I had to search for other groups that might be more helpful. It was very discouraging, and it made me less inclined to put effort into my artwork as no one would comment on it anyway, so I thought, 'why bother?'.

After joining ProjectComment, I felt more appreciated when I gave lengthy, thoughtful, comment, and besides the benefit of actually getting comments, participating with other users made me more motivated to produce my absolute best artwork, and push myself out of my comfort zone to improve.


:iconfralea: ~ fralea
Before I joined ProjectComment I felt a little discouraged about posting on DeviantArt. I had met some nice people, but I wasn't getting many clients from here (I do some freelancing/commission work) and though some of my watchers gave (and still give) good feedback, the majority of people would tend to say short responses like "cool!" or nothing at all. When I was invited to the group, I got really excited about using my DeviantArt account again. The ProjectComment community is really supportive of everyone no matter your skill level, your style, or the subject matter you draw. I really like how the group also focuses on helping people improve at giving critique and feedback, not just art, and doesn't discriminate against less experienced artists offering advice to more experienced artists. I've gotten some really great advice before from non-artists and beginners!

By pointing out the good elements of people's work, you can make notes for things you might want to try in the future. For identifying areas of potential improvement and offering suggestions of how to fix them you can train your artistic eye, get better at problem-solving in your own work, and become more objective about your own pieces.

I don't comment on other people's work as consistently as some of the members of this community (some of you are crazy awesome!) but I do think that taking the time to think critically about other people's art helps you improve your own work.


:iconrieile: ~ RiEile
When I thoughtfully look through other people's art that I would have otherwise neglected, I start to analyse what works and what doesn't in a much broader sample of cases than just own artworks. This allows me to be more objective about art I see, to stand in other people's shoes and forget about my personal preferences and then to revise them or to come back to them later on a whole new level.

Once I had joined ProjectComment, I have suddenly started seeing a lot of real people rather than some higher or poorer quality galleries here on DeviantArt. For the first time, I feet that there IS a community here.


:iconvikfrachris: ~ vikfrachris
Yes, definitely! It helps me remember tips and tricks I could use in my own art that I've long since forgotten, or find new techniques I'd like to try. It's also fun to get in touch with new people.

Being around artists who are eager to improve and to help others do the same makes for a great community and a fun place to be. :)

This feature will spotlight a few of the amazing members of ProjectComment for an entire month: every week they will answer a different question to showcase their experience with giving and receiving comments and how that has improved their experiences as artists and in the DeviantArt community in general. :heart:

What's an example of great, constructive feedback that you received? What specifically in that comment helped you to improve?


:icondviouslecunning: ~ dviouslecunning
Oh wow, there's so many comments that have been incredibly helpful, it's hard to pick. But one of my absolute favorites is this one by Yetinia. First, it pointed out where I have improved in my artwork, and it really meant a lot that this commenter, though commenting on a rather old piece, took the time to look through my gallery to tell me where I have improved. Second, the commenter pointed out errors I wasn't aware of, like how I draw the face (I consider myself more than decent at drawing humans, but comments like this one remind me that there's always room for improvement,) and gave examples and a detailed explanation as to where I keep making this mistake:

"The one thing I would stay mindful of that seems to be something that has persisted in the work you've posted since the creation of this piece, and I know I struggle with it too, is how you handle profiles.

You seem to have a good understand of other angles of the face, but when it comes to profile, the face starts to lose it's proportions as the bridge of the nose becomes elongated and the eyes lose their orbital spherical qualities. Two examples that I can think of that are beautiful pieces on their own, but still demonstrate troublesome proportions in profile".

And lastly, they provided great color tutorials. It's one of the comments I routinely go back to when I'm having trouble with coloring, as well as remembering to avoid repeating the same mistakes when drawing faces.


:iconfralea: ~ fralea
I've received a lot of great and varied feedback from this group. The comment (or really, comment chain)  that I would like to use as an example, though, is something that I was able to use not only to repaint my image one time, but build on the same advice to repaint it a second time months later.

The commenter who helped me was queenofeagles and you can see our conversation here.

I really appreciate that she took the time to follow up after her initial comment to answer my questions and take a look at how I was implementing her advice.


2nd Piece: My repaint (Feb 2016) based on queenofeagles’s critique  
3rd Piece: Another repaint (Sept 2016) where I was able to revisit the same advice (especially tried to fix the facial expression and skin tones this time).

When I submitted this image to ProjectComment, I knew there was room for improvement but I had had no idea that the specific problems queenofeagles mentioned existed in my work. In my mind, I was seeing the image as I intended it to look instead of how it actually did look, so her thoughts really pointed me in a good direction for improvement. The really great thing about this comment though, was that I was able to use the advice for many other paintings after that one. Explicitly picking out a consistent light source at the very early stages of the painting is important for conveying 3-D form in the kind of painting I do, and I really appreciate queenofeagles pointing out that weakness in my piece. The advice about making sure the figure and the backdrop work together (and the backdrop isn't more saturated/attention-grabbing than the figure) is pretty universally helpful advice as well.


:iconrieile: ~ RiEile
That's a tough question! Let's say Bcpupu's comment on Ludwigskirche. The commenter has incorporated both what makes the piece work:
the statue, while being kept simplistic, looks like a person because you shaded the head right.
and what makes a bad impression:
ornamental part in the middle background. So much so that I am not sure what kind of structure it is.
and gives a reason why it doesn't work:
I believe what was the major mistake was to give it black outlines. You didn't use lineart in the foreground, so it confuses the mind greatly that the background suddenly has more definition.


:iconvikfrachris: ~ vikfrachris
Sneiks gave me great constructive feedback on one of my character designs! He pointed out what was lacking and what I could do about it to improve the character and make her more recognizable. I'm currently in the process of redesigning the character, and his feedback has been a tremendous help. :) It also made me happy to hear what he liked about the character; it made me feel like he appreciated the time I'd put into making her.

Congratulations to IamNoHere for finding exactly what was off with the artwork and being able to convey his thought to the artist. In the words of the artist themselves, IamNoHere pointed out a flaw that 'was really the main thing messing with me while I was trying to figure out what is so wrong with this.

POM - Black wings - PrologueNight That Changes Everything

It was a usually busy night, just as nights in cities are most of the time. The shouting stopped, and so did the sounds of shoes that had chased me from a little while ago. I slowed down, but I couldn't risk stopping completely, at least not now. Despite the reality that I was in desperate need of a break, if only for a few seconds, I forced myself to continue. I hid in the dark shadows, and slowly but surely proceeded to my destination of the nearby loading harbor. I didn't know if I could do it. I knew I had to improvise with the so-needed treatment, but it served its purpose. I couldn't proceed in my current, slowed down pace, though. I leaned on a pole and breathed sharply. "Just a little longer," I thought.
I could see the cranes for moving cargo to their ships towering from afar. Almost there, I walked between the load and flinched in pain with every wrong move I made. I constantly searched for anything suspicious, but nothing indicated that

"Get out of my flowers, you thoughtless cat!"
I ignored the screams of our neighbour, but, without further commands, jumped out of his pot, not caring about digging in the hole I made. When my paws touched the railing, I flicked my tail to keep the balance and settled on my new observation point.
The view wasn't worth much. It ended with a window on the opposite side of the street, a window that hadn't seen the water for weeks. The rusty balcony railing was covered with pigeons looking at me with mocking grins on their beaks, shaking their tails as if saying, “Catch me if you can!” Those stupid birds!
With a quick glance, I considered my chances and reluctantly admitted the defeat. For their luck and my anger, they were too far. I looked away so I wasn't forced to watch their taunting dance. What a life they have, without a cat being able to eat them!
Cars were buzzing under me. Whole streams of cars. The pedestrians

Admin Pick - Comment of the Month


Nocturnaliss chooses NymphTale's comment as March's Comment of the Month, for it is well worded, and quite fitting within the theme it was made for (Comment Support Group #1 - Lack of Artistic Experience). NymphTale made a full critique, pointing out what they thought were strong points in the picture, and what they thought lacking - and compared these weak points to certain issues they felt they had as well. Critiques can help an artist forward, but also a commenter, as it enables them to comprehend where they, themselves may be going wrong, and to try and rectify these issues. NymphTale obviously has a sharp eye and a way with words, which I think quite deserving of praise.

Congratulations to InoueOKaito, who surprised us with his take on the second artwork, which was meant to be taken as an Artisan Craft piece. Instead, his comment reflected his interest in Photography, which is a field different from his area of expertise. He said something very important, I think:

commenting helps me with my art since my own words can also affect myself.. expressing the mistakes and things other can make makes me mindful of my own improvement and mistakes as well...

Which is an important aspect of feedback, and one very good reason to comment even when you feel you're not 'good enough' compared to someone else.

Hello! by IamNoHere POM - Black Wings - Chapter fifteen - Part one Chapter fifteen: When the desperate times call… Part one
[Skipper]
“Is the van going back yet?”
“I’ve already told you I have no idea, Private!”
I gnashed my beak. He could be glad I wasn’t in the mood for slapping. Too grateful for their compassion to do it. Too relieved they hadn't left…
I slapped him anyway. Not so hard as usual, though, just to show I wasn't becoming sentimental.
Kowalski stepped from foot to foot at his hiding place and drew out the binoculars. "They should've been on their way by now," he stated.
"It's a pity we can't be sure," Private lamented, rubbing his cheek.

A Tip and Final Word!


:lightbulb: If you see a piece has already received constructive comments, pass on your comment love to another piece that hasn't received any comments! Spread the comment love around so that we all feel it! :love:

We would like to thank everyone who has given a constructive comment in the past month. It takes time, effort and more, but every constructive comment you make helps a member of DeviantArt, a fellow artist who may or may not be in a similar position to you. We hope that the artist will pass on the kindness and give a constructive comment to another member. Without your comment, we may not be able to hope at all.
