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.

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!

Commented on Lei-Wynn by FireWario.

Lei-Wynn by FireWario
"The main thing I see here that I think needs improvement are her legs, they look really awkward compared to the rest of her. Her right leg (our left) looks like it needs some foreshortening so it looks like it's going behind her instead of sticking out to the side. The shadow on top of it should also be on the bottom or the entire leg should be in shadow.

The overall shading on this could use work, really. ^^; It seems a bit too simple, even for cell shading. Remember to figure out where the light is coming from when doing the shading to make sure you're adding it in the right places.

Commented on Thing by headache-princess.

Thing by headache-princess
"Framing could be used to enhance whatever emotion you would like. He could be smaller in on of the corners, evoking loneliness, or smaller in the lower center relating himself to a vast space on both sides. This is a matter of experimentation really. work with different canvas sizes and figure positions. See which one gives you a better response.

Level of detail is how much information can be found in the piece. The Stylized-cartoon approach is very nice. You chose not to use too much detail, such as realistic clothe folds or texture properties, even in a line-art form. The shoes seem to have a bit too much information compared to the rest of the character. Here the line thickness is interfering with the shoelace colors. Having less lace holes and thicker laces will still effectively communicate your shoe's design.

Commented on Smaug 2 by J-Grey.

Smaug 2.0 by J-Grey
"I like the warm vs. cold conflict of the background which suits the character very well.

The texture of the background is detailed enough to be realistic and simple enough to not draw too much attention from the character.

The anatomy of the hand on his chin looks terrific but his other hands pose looks a bit too stiff. :P
I suggest trying the pose yourself with a similar object to find a more comfortable pose to use.
The proportions of the hands are perfect though. :)

EDIT: So if you missed the event this Saturday, we're giving you a second chance for the event TODAY! Show up here at 11 AM PDT / 2 PM EDT (United States) / 7 PM BST


Hey everyone, this is DTKinetic reporting. I've realized that our chat events here have generally been on a random and haphazard schedule. This is mainly because my real life schedule operates the same way. With job interviews, home repairs/responsibilities, and maintaining relationships, I don't know what I'm going to be doing days in advance, so it would be much harder to commit to something online if something higher priority pops up.

:bulletpurple: So I found the solution. From now on, practically all my chat events will be held on Sundays. It's the weekend, so most people won't have to worry about work/school. I have church in the mornings and I know when I get home, so I at least have some structure in my schedule to make it a little more predictable.

:bulletblue: I will shoot for one chat event every two Sundays.

:bulletgreen: I'll update this journal announcing the time, but it will be relatively stable, around 2 PM EDT (United States) / 7 PM BST.

Okay, thanks for reading, and I hope this works out =)

:note: As a side note, if you are available on a different day/time, please let us know so that we can best accommodate you!
