It's so huge, so friendly, and so accessible. If I wanted someone to draw a picture of my cat, I could place a commission and pay next to nothing for it. It's all here -- stories, paintings, sketches, digital art, and who knows what else. If I were interested in photographic panoramas of northern Montana, I could probably find some in a few seconds. And if anyone were interested in fractals, they could find their way here before too long.
There's so much exposure everywhere. I love it. And everybody is so positive.
Too positive, perhaps. I almost never receive helpful comments; if I receive any comments at all, they're on how wonderful it looks. Sure, I like that. My ego loves a good stroking. But it's really not as helpful as criticism.
So... does anyone know where I can go to get some criticism?
