Should i wait for community critique or just paid for the official one?

9:28 AM, Friday July 29th 2022

I have just submitted Lesson 1 Homework and posted it for community critique, but i wonder if i should wait for days or maybe even weeks to be critiqued or just paid membership for patreon to get official critique?

If you choose to do community critique make sure you join the discord and check out the #critique-exchange channel, it makes it easier to get critiques without paying (though you need to help others in exchange)

Hi Elodin

Yeah... I have already connected discord to my drawabox account. Btw, can i start for critique other now or should i wait for your critique first before i can do that?

If you wait 7 days after posting a lesson 1 submission you can ask on the discord channel and you'll get added to the queue even if you didn't do any critique. When you get that one you can already do lesson 1 critiques to pay for the other submissions if you want more

It's up to you honestly. By paying you are asking for feedback from people who has been through it and runs the show, while doing the free thing asks others to comment at their own pace, and might not be as nuanced as official feedback.

I don't regret paying for it, but again this is for you to decide.

Do you get critique for your homeworks much quicker when you signed patreon membership for official critique compare to doing free community critique?

For example, you submit the homeworks in community critique style, you wait for days or maybe even months for the homeworks to be critiqued, but when you submit it in official critique style, you get critiqued in 1 to 2 days after you submit it

Is that how official critique works? ( i'm sorry if it's kind of rude but i just want to know)

You get answered within (usually) 4 days, and you get specific criticism suited for you.

Personally I've gotten much more out of DaB since switching to paid critique. I went up to lesson 4 on my own before getting fed up with how rare it is to get a community critique, especially past lesson 2. The critiques are very in depth with what I did right and what I need to work on, and I feel more trusting of them since they came from an experienced artist.

If you can't afford it or plan on doing DaB casually then I wouldn't say it's worthwhile, but if you can afford it and you plan on getting as much out of the course as you can then I recommend trying it. You can take a look at homework on this site submitted for official critique to get an idea of what the critiques are like.

the paid is 5 to 10 a month which is dirt cheap so paid is the way

If you can afford it I highly recommend getting the paid critique!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
