Edit 2: This is a little random, but I just wanted to say how happy it makes me to see that you guys took the time to comment on some of the other pieces posted here :D Hehe.  I've been noticing it as I have been leaving my own feedback, and it is just so so wonderful!  
Let me also reassure you guys not to get discouraged by the sheer number of comments- I will get to everybody! I have made it a personal mission (; Even if it takes me a month haha.  If you want an idea of the length of the comments I am leaving you can turn to the first and second pages of comments...You might be able to see why this is going to take a bit of time (;
Anyway, thank you guys for the opportunity and mission!

Edit: Hey guys! I just wrote the first critique, and it took me a lot longer than I had anticipated XD I think at this pace I will be able to do say, 5 to 10 a day.  Maybe more if I have the time?  It is good practice for my art classes, as I am supposed to be writing critiques outside of class as well as inside my classes.  Anyway, don't be discouraged if I don't immediately get to you! I will work through everybody's! It's going to take a week or so though. haha

Hello deviantART!
I have been so caught up with school, commissions, and other art this past week--It has been crazy!

Anyway, I constantly feel the urge to give back to this wonderful community that has been so kind to me :3
If you feel like it, you can post any ONE work here that you would like honest feedback on, and I will do my best to give feedback to every artist that posts.  This will not be a simple comment like 'nice' or 'cool'.  It will be real, honest, heartfelt feedback/critique.  I feel that every artist here has the right to that sort of support from a fellow artist!

It makes me sad to see journals and comments lately regarding deviantART as 'turning into facebook' or not caring about less known artists.  I want to assure artists out there that there are still those who care about emerging artists, and that deviantART is still a wonderful place if you look in the right spots :3

:star: What is a critique?
For those of you who are not familiar with how to write a proper critique, this is an essential tool for anyone pursuing art as a career.  It is a thoughtful response to an artwork, often at least a paragraph (usually more) in length.  A critique highlights both the positive and negative attributes of a work of art (it does not sugarcoat, but it also does not aim to bash).  A critique also often tries to interpret what the artwork has to say.
This is the sort of feedback I will be leaving.

:star:  In a perfect world, I would love for you all to take time to comment on some of your fellow deviantART members who comment in this journal! It is a wonderful experience when we can share as a community rather than just keeping to ourselves ;)  But don't feel forced to do this :P

Thank you all! I hope to see some beautiful work :D
Oh, and I am exhausted right now, but I will definitely be leaving feedback over the next couple of days...don't get discouraged if I don't immediately get back to you :)
