About us
Hello everyone! This is StarlingKia. I've seen groups dedicated to trading llamas, trading art but not one for trading critiques. Thus Critique-Trade was born. I hope for everyone to get better at writing critiques and, of course, using critiques on getting better at their artwork. Now, I am new to being a group admin and this is my first group so if anyone has any question, comments, or concerns feel free to send me a note.

:bulletred: Up to three submissions per day. (Subject to change as the group grows.)
:bulletorange: Art must be in compliance with DeviantArt's rules and regulations.
:bulletyellow: Please try to submit to the correct folder. Feel free to ask if you do not know which folder something needs to go into. Only submit your best works into the feature folder.
:bulletgreen: Please be kind in your critiques. There is constructive criticism and there is just being plain mean. There will be journals and link posted soon on how to give good comments/critiques.
:bulletblue: If someone doesn't have the ability to ask critiques (non-subscribers), then leave nice long critique like comments. (More on that later)
:bulletpurple: On the group comment page, you may ask for critiques and post a link to the artwork you wish to be critiqued. When someone responds or critiques, ask them which piece they would like you to critique.
:bulletpink: Please when you receive a critique, give one back. Remember the whole part of this group is to give and receive critiques.

Rules are subject to change. If there is any major rule change, a notice will be sent out to all members on the change.

Group Info

This is a group created for the purpose giving critiques and in turn receiving them, or vica versa.

Sorry to some of our members that had their submissions expired. For some reason I wasn't getting any group messages. The old rules was that admin had to vote on things,but I voted everyone's art in anyway. (Who am I to vote no? Everyone's art is quite wonderful and delightful!) So, I changed the submissions rules to automatically accept everything but there is still a limit for only 3 deviations per day. Hopefully this will fix expired submissions. We are still a small group so sorry for not much going ons but hopefully we will grow.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day/week/month! And happy critiquing!

Hello can I just upload a piece of art or do I have to find a partner 1st? 

I'm not sure if I should upload anything yet, without knowing what to fully do.

Hey anyone wanna do a critique trade?

I'll definitely critique something of yours. Just send me the link. Right now I don't have any works to be critiqued so you can critique anything from my gallery or wait for something new to be created. (But I can't make any promises on how quickly that will be. ^^; School is kicking my butt right now.)
ALEXACEDEATH Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Student Digital Artist

Okey dokey! Thanks Kia! Here ya go! :D And whenever you want something critiqued just tell me! And good luck with school!

P.s. BTW I was kind of curios about that, how does your school work exactly? Is it one of those where the school-year actually ends in December?
