Crit Day! Post before the 11th and get cc!

Hello hello! It is a glorious day (and no I am not just referring to it being my birthday). The sky is blue, the air is a cool 76 degrees, and life is good. Thanks for all the warm messages. Let's celebrate with my first ever crit day!

Post a link to one original artwork of yours and I will offer my critiquing services to the first 10 who post artwork here (I'll be surprised if I get more requests, but if I do I will try and get to yours as time allows). You have one week to post your work. On Sunday the 11th I will begin critiques. It's okay to post works in progress although I would prefer the image be at least somewhat complete. Loose sketches are too early of a stage.

If this goes well, it's something I will try and do often. It's a small way of saying thank you to all my followers and watchers. Truly, I am very glad to have had so many people take an interest in my work and my blog. My ultimate goal for my website and blog is for it to be a resource to other people. I can't tell you how much critic has helped my work improve. I wish I could get in depth critic on all of my work but now that I am working for commercial clients I find that non disclosure agreements have heightened my respect for some good ole cc.

So go ahead and post away! ;)

Thanks for doing this. I'll definitely take you up on that. I've had a hard time finding accomplished artists that are willing to give some feedback. You rock!

Here's one of the commissioned pieces I did recently.

What a kind and generous offer! :)
I know there are a lot of things wrong with this, but fresh and better eyes than mine would be appreciated.

Lightheaded and sleepy I offer my inner soul to you. LOL, just kidding. I would love some feedback from you.
Thank you!

I think it's really cool that you're doing this Ashley :).

I'm a beginner still, but I have a work in progress that I just started, and I would like to get off on the right foot :)

Here is the link to my WIP thank you so much for inspiring me to go back to school and taking the time to look over my stuff!
