super duper support this! Although, I will restrict some things I say either way. There are things I would never post on a forum about critique, unless I know them personally and will tell them personally. Just because I don't want some crazy reputation of being a some pretentious butt who thinks she is on top of everyone. I've been an art teacher, and it's grown on me, that's all.

But yes, for anyone who is asking for a honest critique and has that logo, I will definitely help you out in most positive-honest way I can type out.

Lodable initiative.

I like to think that feedback can't be negative, only untruthful. And untruthful critique, both positive and negative, can do a lot of harm to an aspiring artist/developer, way more than any honest dickhead comment would ever do. Feedback purpose is to let the artist understand what his works elicits in others, and change it to improve it and make it better. Not criticizing a work when it should to not make an author feel bad about his work is actually harmful for his/her development. Of course, that's not an excuse for making ineducated points! But still, giving honest critique is hard and that's why it's so valuable: most people can't be bothered to give it.

I have a friend, one of the closest ones, who is the most honest person I know, to the point of being abrasive. That's the reason he isn't really popular in our group of friends, he likes to make people know what he thinks of them. Many people don't like this. But I found him to be an invaluable source of critique. I always send a copy of works I want criticized to him first, because I know he's being absolutely honest about what he thinks about the work. I've learned so much about my own work thanks to him.

I think we should be careful not to mistake Brutal Honesty for Honest Critique. Brutal Honest is normally a negative opinion intentionally biased against a person, concept, or group. It's like dealing with somebody you don't like - nothing they do will ever change your opinion of them and you may just shape even their good traits as something terrible in your own mind.

An example of this would be somebody that hates Japanese names in English VNs being unduly critical of a game that uses them.

That said, I prefer people to tell me what they think even if it's Brutal Honesty. I'll just ignore the unhelpful comments and learn from the helpful ones.
Did you just copy and past this to see what it said?

I understand what you are talking about. Personally I believe that understanding what someone personally dislikes and what is objectively (as in, technically) wrong in a work is an artist's problem and only comes from listening to lots of (honest) critique.

Hi,

First link is broken!

The initial poster said it was found using basic search engine query, so maybe we can replace it by helpful search keywords ; in any case here's a backup link from archive.org :
