I am loving Redbubble as a new member but one thing that has been bothering me is the amount of empty compliments that I see on everyone’s images. I believe that if we are real artists we must have more to say about someone’s work than “good job, nice image”. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate these compliments, it lets me know I must be doing something right. However, I don’t know what that is. I would like people to tell me what they like about my images, my strengths AND weaknesses. If you think an image is poor or could be improved please tell me. I often want to give other artists constructive criticism because I think that is how an artist community should grow, but feel that I can’t because everyone else just says awesome, nice work, fantastic, cool, etc. So this is a just a little request for some more in depth conversation over images besides “nice work”. My biggest pet peeve is when you ask someone what they like about an image and they say “I don’t know, I just like it”.
