Giving Critiques

I like to give art critiques on deviantArt from time to time, especially on images that I like but also when they have some problems I want to address. This way I want to raise awareness to some overseen spots and help the artist.

The last time I wrote a comment two users wrote below mine and they were vexed that I was so nitpicky for the minor things and it was bad that I gave “unwanted critique”. All I did was spotting some smudges (on transparent background), small unfilled and unintentionally half-transparent areas, not finished shadows, and a couple wrongly layered outlines.

I wasn’t mean. I wrote my observations as objectively as possible with ways how to see the areas I addressed (by setting the background to a dark color). In fact I complimented the picture that it looked nice.

In the end the artist itself wrote back that the critique was appreciated but everything I pointed out won’t be fixed. (note: the artist was selling the image on t-shirts at an online store).

Unpopular Opinion: “How are you?”

I really don’t like when people ask me “How are you?”. It’s common for a lot of people to start a conversation this way but in my opinion it is useless. I always shrug and say “OK, I guess.” and the people are confused by my answer. Then they ask me then what’s wrong but in reality there is nothing to talk about. Instead I tend to say “good” because the people don’t question this any further and It makes the starting phase of the conversation pass as quickly as possible. In my opinion there is not much to say about my well-being except when I’m sick or injured.

There were instances on the Internet when a total stranger approached  me with “What are you about?” and “How are you?” and it ended in awkwardness. “Why does the person bother me with such a profane and personal question?”, I ask myself. As a person who is very careful about revealing personal information to the public it becomes an impossible task to do something about. Answering to them, without any subtext of body gesture and the voice is a lot harder without pissing them off (which I don’t want to).

I recommend everyone that they should not start conversations with “How are you?” but instead with questions that are easier to respond to and are more direct and lead to more interesting chats. “How did you do X?” or “Can you tell me about X?” or just “What are your interests and hobbies?” are far more endearing to talk about, especially on the Internet.

I added disqus comments to my ask blog and allowed guest comments (without using a disqus/twitter/facebook/google-plus account). I think that I’ll regret it some day.

I pulled off a marathon and watched all Parks and Recreation episodes. I’m really surprised that the episodes had a great sense of continuity over the series. The only downer was that the first season felt so mean-spirited in comparison to the rest. In comparison to The Office this one feels so much nicer despite of the constant mobbing of Terry/Larry/Lenny/Jerry/Gary. Poor Terry/Larry/Lenny/Jerry/Gary.
From all the characters there I like Ron Swanson the most. Every time he is on screen it fills me with joy when he reacts towards something government or his privacy related.
Then I like Andy Dwyer. He is a lovable doofus. What he does not have in his brain is compensated by his big and golden heart.
Ben Wyatt is my third favorite just because I can relate to him so much. He is a nerd in the best sense I can mean.
My least favorites are Tom Haverford and April Ludgate. Tom is annoying with his swag attitude and his abiding habit to show off his swag. April just pisses me off with her negative mindset and her horrible behavior towards everyone. When she hooked up with Andy it was sometimes painfully to watch because they are soo different. Later on the writers did a better job to make the relationship believable but I still think that they are in an unhealthy relationship.
Overall I really enjoyed the series and I’ll anticipate the next season.
