ProjectComment presents the community of deviantART a project that will question what it really means to be a commenter, an artist, a member of deviantART. All of these challenges relate to commenting in some shape or form, and we sincerely encourage everyone to take part! :la:

You do not have to be brilliant at writing comments and we are not asking you to perform miraculous feats. We are just looking for people willing to make a difference. It is all too easy to receive constructive comments, but giving them is equally, if not more, rewarding.



Each week, a challenge is set with the deviations of those who participated in the previous week featured in a news article. Many thanks to LiinaPhotography, OlivCater, CameronKobe for participating in Week 35!

ProjectComment is a Group that provides Guaranteed & Constructive comments for the deviantART community.

In order to support those efforts, we encourage dedicated users to give comments too. For those who are critics, artists, or just helpful in the community, we now offer something in return for all that you do - be it helping the participants of ProjectComment, or the group itself!

This weekly article focuses on the amazing deviants in the deviantART community, who have given fantastic comments, through excerpts of those comments, artwork by the deviants themselves, and much more! Your support in :+fav: the article would be much appreciated. :heart:



Spotlight Commenters

These commenters are determined by you through Nominations (read below for more information). Each month, we will be selecting a couple of amazing commenters based on the comments we have seen in our gallery submissions and elsewhere on deviantART. Anyone on deviantART is applicable for this feature!

Around the world by tiocleiton
"Nice color choices on there. Love the style of the key she's holding and her tattoos. I suppose the areas I will be pointing out are either mistakes or simply your style, so please be aware that I understand some things that I may call as flaws may just be intentionally made by you.

I like the pinkish highlights on her hair but not that pink dot, it looks off. The legs, especially from below the knees, change length too much on her walk, not a biggie, a little adjustment would fix it. ^^ Perhaps to make her seem more alive, you can make her blink at some parts and make her mouth move, just a little you know.

Wanderers by NeverMore-X The Lonely Monster
        Passers by would always make a second glance at him.
        Roy liked to think it was his pet crow, Timmy, catching their attention. But he knew better. Sure, his black hair and brown eyes were of the common kind but his presence cannot be ignored.
        Roy’s father was a hunter so he grew up shooting down and slaughtering wild animals. When his father died, Roy was able to live in peace through fishing. Although a new man, those years of hunting appeared on his body built.
        The thought made him smirk while he looked out at the scene in front of him.
        The narrow streets were busy and filled with townsfolk. There were lots of bugs, which was fortunate for Timmy, who constantly pecked the air for his morning snack.
        His eyes would squint against the dusty and sunny view of it all.
        Just another day.

Viva La Gloria Pg 7 by Lexi247
"I have a few things here in regard to your art in general. Firstly, I'll address your sense of depth. There is clearly a foreground and a background here, however they appear very smushed together. For example, in the first panel, I feel like there is no space between the characters, the wall, and the cows, even though the cows are super-tiny in comparison. A quick fix for this problem would be adding shadows behind one side of your characters against the wall, to show that there is space. Another way to address depth is to show us a little bit of the inside of the window, not on the top, but along the bottom and the left side. That way the stone wall doesn't look paper-thin.

Secondly, I have to address your anatomy. You seem to have a fair understanding already, however I can see the lack of structure and consistency throughout the panels. You do have some proportion issues, which I notice in the head. A person's head should be as deep as it is wide: the distance from the top of the head to the chin = the distance from back of the head to the front of the face. The size of your character's head determines the size of the rest of their body.

Commented on Eugenides, the Thief King by ACMYU.

Eugenides, the Thief King by ACMYU
"  This picture has really intense emotions, I think you created a great atmosphere. The colour scheme you chose suits the royal theme. The way you painted clothes and fur gives the portrait an amazing oil painting look. However, I can see not covered lines in some parts of the picture. I suggest adding lineart/sketch to the separate layer, unless you want your drawing to have a specific ‘unfinished’ style (sometimes it works really good, though). Also, I don’t see anything wrong in using semi-realism style for his face.

   As for the anatomy, his left eye looks a bit asymmetrical to the right one. You will see the difference, if you rotate the image till the face will be upright. I don’t know what program you use, but, for example, SAI allows doing such things easily. I also suggest putting a stronger shadow between his hand and cheek. I like how you painted his delicate features and squinting eyes. You did a great job with his hair, they look very detailed.

Walking around in Bergen... by sutoroberikurimu  [FF] Of Knowledge, Determination and Crazy Pandas
Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.
Summer.
The senior schoolgirl - she would officially be senior by the end of the summer vacation - with short, somewhat messy grass-green hair dragged her exhausted slender body up the narrow and extremely creaky wooden staircase - they needed an immediate repair - before coming to a rest in front of a wooden door labeled "6-A, 中国語 A-1". There it was, the classroom for students of the center's Mandarin Chinese course for beginners. Megpoid Gumi threw her glance to the side until her eyes met with a sign etched to the wall in the hallway that wrote "Floor 6". To her, this was more or less some kind of torture. Just how could they have the heart to make newbies like her climb all the way to floor 6 when the center had no elevators whatsoever?
Sighing, she pushed the large door open and almost froze when it created a painful screeching sound against the floor; it felt as if it was screeching into her heart. Setting her heavy butt down on
  Of Knowledge, Determination and Crazy Pandas C.2
She glanced at the clock on the wall.
Tick.
Tock.
Tick.
Tock.
Seven o'clock sharp.
Gumi gritted her teeth together and blocked her ears trying to keep herself from the agonizing sound the door made against the floor. She let go of her ears just to have another even more terribly unwanted sight to hit her eyes: a short girl with perfectly silky short blond hair entered in the usually "girly" way of hers. Immediately, Gumi's absent-minded gaze morphed into a stare of pure fury and rage.
"Kagamine Rin." - the green-haired muttered with venom dripping from her voice.
"Oh, it's you, Megpoid." - said the other between downright annoyingly sugary giggles - "Who knows we'd meet here? What a coincidence isn't it?"
"Like, why are you here anyway?" - Gumi rebutted, turning one-eighty away.
"Why should a loser like you know? But well, since you insist so hard then I guess I have to tell you. Megpoid," - there it went again; the way Rin referred to her by her last name made Gumi sick to the

Being just what they are.
Creating all they've got inside
Don't be afraid to show their pride!
Even if nobody seems to care,
Find their way up the stair.
