how the fuck do soft as overly emotionally attached "muh fee-fee" people expect to make it in this industry?today i had probably the most awkward experience of my life.at school i asked to see this guys work (who is learning game art to be a character artist)and all i said to him was that the perspective of his chest looks off. he literally got triggered so hard that i feel bad 12 hours later. hes like "i didnt ask for your criticism" and nigga said "as artists we have emotional attachment me to our work so you cant say stuff like that"WTF? literally any artists ever will tell you to never get attached to your work because your art director or supervisor might say its shit and make you redo it like 450 times.or have i just grown a hard shell from posting on /3/ for over 2 years. people told me my work is shhit and that i should kill myself so many times that i cant have it any other way. but you niggas tell me exactly why my work is shit and what i should fix so ty for that.
>how the fuck do soft as overly emotionally attached "muh fee-fee" people expect to make it in this industry?Because they shut themselves off from people who tell them that they are not going to make it just like they shut themselves off from people who tell them to improve themselves.
>>539976>cuck talesWho cares about people with fee-fees? They'll learn once they get into the industry nobody gives a shit about their feelings. They are the eternal laughing stock for the rest of the world.
>>539976>sentimental about workAt least you got the part about taking flak from bosses right, other people would just whine about being bossed around.
>>539976I am an artist and these fags pissed me off in college. Ripped them a new one every time critiques came. They were kissing my ass even after that and I would tutor their asses as well so eventually they improved.
>>539976> ITT: "I sure told those pussies to man up, god i'm superior..."They're newbies, they'll either learn to take criticism eventually or they'll quit.
>>539976>at school There's your problem. I'm just imagining the lame kids that I see by Sheridan every time I'm in Canada.
>>539976As much as I agree with you, OP, not everyone does 3DCG to get into the industry.
>>540558But everybody can always improve, and everybody should realise this. If you're actively denying constructive criticism you're a retard.
>>540561It really doesnt sound like OP's colleague was asking for crits. You dont have to offer criticism at every opportunity. Sometimes people just wanna share what they made with other people. Imagine someone giving you a bit of the cake that they made to share with everyone. Everybody in the room loves the cake and thanks guy for sharing it with them. You say, "you put too much butter in this". You might be right, but you're still an asshole.When I think about it, OP is getting too used to this environment. OP isnt in the same class as the other guy and shouldnt have offered crits if the guy didnt ask for them. You wouldnt do it with other fields like cooking, you shouldnt do it there.
Going to school for toy/product design and not entertainment, but the trends are the same. >first semester classes are 30-40 people>most get super butthurt at critiques>the dieoffs start as people drop out of the program>what remains aren't always the best, but they're the people that WORK, and understand they're there to get ripped to pieces so they can learnFast forward three years and we have like two special melting snowflakes, but the rest are super chill by now.
I know this feeling so well , anon.I haven't been modeling for long but I do have a good understanding of anatomy, shading, structure, that shit. My god though, the amount of people who think that they can magically sit down and shit out their crappy character without even considering any basic rules such as weight, proportion, structure. I know a classmate who brags to everyone how she's been cartooning for years. When we finally got to see her model character it literally looked like a playdoh stick man. She tried to defend it by stating that it was her style. (sorry for the long rant, tired as hell, haven't slept in 30 hours.)
>>541061>Long rant>Only 3 linesNo need to apologize m8
>>539976Professional rockstar north employee here where criticism in the office is RIFE and not withheld in the slightest (a very good thing!) I used to be that guy... Its really difficult to hear bad things about something you worked hard on, especially when you cant see a fault in it yourself and are proud of it. I learnt to cope with it early on but not after trying to defend my work and being told I "need to toughen up to get into this industry" ... give the man a break he'll get it eventually and, hey, if he doesnt then he wont improve. I would explain that to him and see if he's more receptive next time and if not, fuck him, some dont want to step outside their comfort zone to learn which is a shame because its the only way you can.
>>541078Id call rockstar emolyees slaves over professionals
>>539976The whole point of college is to learn how to take constructive criticism
>>541127Agreed. But I do enjoy it. And it pays well. And Edinburgh is fantastic.
>>539976Just giving out criticism isn't inherently a bad thing. If he got upset because he heard something that he didn't agree with then I almost think he doesn't deserve to be in the industry.On the other hand, criticism can just make people feel bad. Whatever's productive, just try and help him.
>>539976fuck this guy hes the one thats not gonna make it. people who says thats are fucking frauds with no professionalism. critisism is good when constructive
>>542731>fuck this guy hes the one thats not gonna make ityou'd be surprised how many businesses have a buddy system
>>540587There's nothing wrong with the truth. Never
>>539981>Because they shut themselves off from people who tell them that they are not going to make itAs does anyone who isn't an /r9k/ tier loser
>>540587this... even though he obviously is oversensitive and overreacting, you should learn when to shut up. Tell the truth when it's the right time (during a critique, dailies, review), but if you randomly critique someone's work when they're just showing it to you you're kind of being a jerk. It's not about being honest or not, it's about knowing how to be civil and understand the social situation. This is something that applies to when you get into the industry as well, trust me. You think you're gonna walk around the studio and just point out every single mistake in people's work? lol
>>539976For the record most legitimate artists know (people who actually spend their whole life honing their craft) will always accept criticism whether they ask for it or not. Next time try to be more reasonable with him/her. Obviously he's an amateur, getting triggered just puts you on the same level as his inability to socialize properly. On another note. Art schools are so fucking cringe what did you expect?
>>544664Not going to make it
Either they will get use to it, they'll change their career choice, or may quit all together.
>>539976My drawing teacher made us draw 3 portraits of a classmate on the first day, then he made us pick the one we liked most, and then he made us rip it to shreds. Drove the point home nicely.
>>547067Spam your trash elsewhere.
>>540587>You might be right, but you're still an asshole.No you're not.If anything you're providing a service to that person.If he didn't want criticism then he shouldn't have put so much butter in it.
>>539976Welp, people expect criticism when they want to show their work and ask for it, but since you asked to see it he propably took it as youre mocking him / his work since he didnt see anything wrong with it and thought you only wanted to see it to mock himTheory, none the less.
>>539976Before I started fucking around with this, I had my turn as a "fee-fee artist", but it was in pastry school. I got the fee-fee knocked out of me real fucking quick. I had a chef instructor pick up a cake I was working on, flip it upside down, and smash it into my workstation. I mean obliterated it. Then told me I had till the end of class to do it again and "do it the right way". I hated that motherfucker, but he was spot on. I spent the next four years after school working at one of the best bakeries in town. No one even came close to my skill for a long time thanks to his forcing the right way down my throat. Sometimes people just need a steel-toed boot to the face to get their heads out of the clouds.
