Well. I have a few moments to pen some thoughts while I figure out the kinks in an irritatingly obnoxious Blender render.

So let's begin with the most important thought. Why this is here.

On my way to giving a little bit of critique; or what turned out to be quite a lot of critique; of a webcomic whose work I must say is truly inspiring I got plugged back with an unexpected answer. Diplomatically worded, and terse for fairly good reasons. It essentially translated down to, "I appreciate your efforts, but find somewhere else to put them. This isn't a good place for this."

This was true, and will stay true until some new internet revolution comes along that encourages excessively long and rather abrasive posts.

So that's what this Blog is for. If you're perusing this, just know that this is not the deeply private thoughts of some random bloke on the internet. This is a blog solely dedicated to solid critique of solid or otherwise projects and the discussions that revolve thereof.

If you are an artist, musician, webcomic dude(tte); or other kind of person whose had my thoughts thrown at you in a terse line that says - I've got a lot to say, please go read it [insert link here]. - or some variant thereof; please understand this. If I give thoughts on something, this means that I have accepted the fact that you may contest those thoughts. That's just how these things work.

Please do feel free to  state your yae's and nae's, though keep things civil unless it's to make a good point. I'm happy for people to tell me I'm wrong, just make sure you explain yourself when you do.

So, dear readers. Read on. Enjoy the thoughts, hate them, I don't mind either way.

I hope you learn something new.

I'll see you on the other side.

  1. Just to clarify, I do welcome critiques on my site. It's just that my comment system starts squishing paragraphs after just a few nested replies. This was my concern when it came to your extensive critique as it required not just a few replies but a whole discussion XD.

    I didn't mean to sound like I was just saying "take this elsewhere".

    Anyway, I'll get started on some responses here :]

  2. Oh of course! It's not like this is the first time I've pointed things out to you. Both you and Wisk were completely right when you said to find a better place. The Everblue system is hardly practical, especially for a discussion length topic. After all, they start to cut the other people out of the site. I in no way found the points negative. I appreciated the point.
    In fact, putting critiques and reviews and whatnot here actually offers a central point to start collating, so a reader can browse through earlier bits and see comments on other places.

  3. That said, you may want to find a way of making sure this (perhaps in a shortened form) remains at the top of your site, so that readers WILL find this. I'm sure I don't have to explain to you that most readers won't scroll right to the bottom, especially when your posts are so long (and not cut off on the main page).

    1. That's a rather good point. I'll take you up on that. Maybe I'll linky the thing at the beginning of each post or put a disclaimer up. Thanks.

  4. Blep. I remembered this analysis a little while ago, and just managed to find it again with Blue's help.

    Just wanted to let you know, this is still awesome. You should come post some more analysis. :3
