dA avatars make me sadCan we all just agree that the size of avatars on dA is ridiculously small and they should be at least 100 px?
Back from OZComicCon BrisbaneThe con was slow and really tiring. I don't think the attendance was the 30k people the organisers told us would come, but this being the first time OZComicCon comes to Brisbane and it being around father's day... I guess it wasn't too bad.I got to hang with Ry-Spirit and some other peeps who I hadn't seen in a long time. Also got to play a bit of Smash Bros 3DS at the Nintendo booth so that's always a plus. 8) Thanks to all who came to the Bulbagarden table and said hi!

Critiquing, do's and dont'sSo i almost always request critiques on my art, and i also get a lot of them too (thank you so much guys/galls) and i've noticed some critiquers have some misconceptions about critiques, their role, how to do it, etc.Now i don't want to critique someone's critiuque, i rarely do that because people take it as being defensive about the art that is critiqued. So i'll just make this journal to hopefully inform/educate some of you about critiquing. Do's-If an artist requests critiques, and you have something to say about it then do use the critique widget to leave a critique. Don't critique in the comment's section though. I know some of you are more shy, but if you're bold enough to write a critique then put it in its proper place, that's what the widget is fore. This does not apply to artists who do not have a premium and can't requests critiques through the widget.-Do read the artists comments on the artwork first. They might offer hints on what
