That is one creative way to ask for critique. xD
The overall concept is almost genius, the rather blunt wording; asking the people to do something that sounds rather impolite and negative is really strong in expression and impact.
The font is easy to read and it's good that it all seems to be in the same size. Though it would have been better (optically) if you would have used only 2 different levels of.... thickness (?) for the lettering.
Also, the colour of the background isn't a very good contrast to the letters' colour, you maybe could change either colour to make the writing stand out a bit more.

Over and all this is a good concept, nicely executed.
I will definitely use this stamp. :)
What do you think?

Actually, once a girl at school literally ripped one of my drawings on purpose, and it DIDN'T help me improve.

even though "tear it up" is in bold lettering, "critique" is the operative word here folks! love it! :D

I usually see one problem but that's it. Otherwise I stay positive.

Can't you critique your own work? Why or why not? (Just asking.)

A fresh pair of eyes can make a world of difference.

I know this feeling all too well. Except I don't want my family to tell me what I'm doing wrong, because all they do is try and make me draw in THEIR style. So I try to have strangers on the interwebs do it, BUT NONE OF THEM SEEM TO SAY A SINGLE THING ABOUT THE ARTWORKS FLAWS.
CAN SOMEONE JUST TELL ME ONE THING I DID WRONG THAT ISN'T ABSOLUTELY RETARDED LIKE "You made a small mark right there, next to the foot." or "You didn't draw this anatomically correct. It's wrong, and you need to fix it."

I want to use this in all of my further devaintations. But how do I include it in the description? Icons, I can do, but I am confused past any point beyond icons

Well, to the right of the critique is a thumb code, and you copy/paste that into your journal/ID to make the image or thumbnail come up. But you have to have a PM to make it come up in artist's comments :(
Nightstripes0987 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Student Digital Artist
thanks! I wish I had premium D:<
bubblewrap-pancakes Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
No prob ^^ Hehe me too, but then I'd get panicky trying to do all the PM-only stuff in one day :noes:
Nightstripes0987 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Lol, as would I. 'What if it doesn't work and I waste all my money but i can't do anything?' 'What if I do it wrong and it cancels my account?!'
I'd flip out! :D
bubblewrap-pancakes Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
Lol ah well, at least we're not the only ones ^^;

This is great! People always compliment my work and I get bloody sick of it! I want to be critiqued so I can get better! My uncle is just about the only one who critiques me on my work.
Jizzanthepuss Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
*hi-five* This is awesome. I've seen a few users with "OMG DONT CRITIQUE MAH ART"!! stamps and it's like "Whaaaat? You only pointless kiss-ass comments?" When I show my art to my family they're blunt with me and that's the way I like it. :)
It's a great to be brave and that's exactly what this stamp is.
RobertStudio22 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012  Student General Artist
This is so true hope you dont mind i use this for the front page
SparkLum Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012
Seen your comments on all those stamps. Made them to be shared so go ahead!

thank you
Blue-Cat00 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh please do not LITERALLY tear it apart, it gave alot of work to do! XD
TheLeetCasualGamer Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would SO USE THIS on just about all my completed, digital deviations if I had a subby!

OliveTheBreloom Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
"Epic awesome picture I luv it" does nothing.

"Nice picture, but the right wing anatomy is very off, it needs to be bent less, and the legs look like jello! Remember bone structure!" does something. :)
LovingDragonBabe Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
there an icon for this?
blueheron93 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011  Student Writer
Engage art whoritude!
I'll critique you if you critique me? I love being torn to shreds.
Kaynime Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Student General Artist
Thank you! I want critique so badly and I never get any - I need it to improve!
BestHeelofAllTime Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I love this. I think about it all the time, the feeling it represents. I wish people critiqued me more often, myself.

:) Wonderful stamp. It's perfect.

Can DO MWAHAHAHAHA!!!! ahem....
Ramen27 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
All I can say is that your stamps are total sex. Every time I see one I am amazed at how awesome they look. Keep up the creativity. :thumbsup:
SparkLum Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011
Thanks, that means a lot 'cause I think yours look really cool too :)
Ramen27 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011

More people NEED your attitude. I'll check out your art sometime.

This is quite a fitting stamp. I like it, and I'd display it if I had a sub.
Marijke-Rose Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
LOVE it! And I TOTALLY agree with you. I can't give you critique on this stamp, because it is, to me, very clear and straightforward, and I don't see why such a thing would need to be more beautiful. Excellent job, IMO.
RecklessKaiser Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
The best type of critique, don't you think? :giggle: I want people be relentless with my art, I want to become a better artist! :shakefist:

Another great stamp, dude! :thumbsup: 8-) :+fav:
