Art crit. The very words strike fear in hearts of art students
everywhere. But you can't truly grow as an artist unless you learn how
to take the dreaded crit in stride. As the writer Norman Vincent Peale
once said, "The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be
ruined by praise than saved by criticism."
This critique was
originally held in October 2016, with special guest Jaime Zollars. Jaime, along with pro illustrators Lee
White and Will Terry, critiqued the personal work of 10 SVS students. Each student
submitted one illustration for critique. This is the recorded version of that class.
Follow along as Jaime, Lee and Will deconstruct each image and give feedback on how to improve the work, both visually and conceptually (don't worry, none of them have fangs). Even though these are critiques of other people's work, you can still learn quite a lot!SVS offers live critiques several times a year, please subscribe to the SVS newsletter to receive updates.
