No one's said this on DA, but when people say, "God gave you an amazing talent", I want to punch them in the face.

"I like this check out my work [link]"

Which only just tops "omg this looks like [insert character/relative/friend here]" "Is it [character]?!"
If I have done fanart, I will tell you who it is, if it is my own character I will say that, if it's your best mate Millie I'll say that too. If I have not said anything it is not that person.

I think any comment that tries to lead all the attention to the writer of the comment instead of the artist.

I don't care for critiques based on personal taste. Like "I don't like tigers" or "I don't like the color blue" "I don't like the hairstyle" . If I did something wrong with something and that's why you don't like it , tell me. But don't act like I did something wrong based on personal preference.

I just feel like you should be critiquing based on technical execution.

oh, there are SO MANY >__< i can't name just one. i'll have to say, any comment that criticizes something that i did on purpose, or something i don't mind. one example is when someone doesn't like my color choices. um, i chose those colors because i WANTED to choose those specific colors. so i don't care if you don't like them. another example is people who don't like my style. why should i care? if i want to draw a certain way then that's the way it's going to be. it's not going to suddenly change just because you don't like it.

another one is criticisms that are too vague. those comments scold me for a problem but they don't really explain the problem so i don't know what they're talking about. example: one time, i drew a picture where several people said that i didn't draw the arm right. and they were snarky about it, they had an attitude. and NONE of them actually explained the problem, so it was hard for me to figure out what i did wrong. i had to figure it out by myself, a long time later. what i'm saying is, you can't just say there's a mistake and then expect the artist to read your mind and automatically understand exactly what you mean.

Vague criticisms are a big pet peeve of mine. I used to get them a lot when I was younger. Someone would come along and say "nice job, but something's off" without saying what was off or why it looked wrong. And when I asked them to go into more detail, they really had nothing else to say. I like critiques, but I shouldn't have to decipher what you're trying to say. It's constructive criticism, not a fucking Professor Layton puzzle. D:

The most annoying comments I have ever gotten are a bit of a story: I had a webcomic. A Fullmetal Alchemist fangirl found it and decided that two of my characters... were actually her two favorite FMA characters (the only resemblance they bore was hair color) and commented on every. Single. Page. For months. She was kind of... making up her own story about what was going on? And basically just ignoring the actual plot of the webcomic. Just OMG WHATEVER-KUN AND WHOEVER-SAMA ARE SO CUTE THEY NEED TO KISS OMG KAWAII.

And then I pissed her off and she unwatched me and I lived happily ever after the end. :lol:

And the typical OMG DA**** IS THAT HAND!?

And you read it like,' open your comment, read it, check that you actually said that, read it again, check that you couldn't really say it more simple. Stare at the comment and want to kill someone'

"You suck" without an explanation, or "your character looks like <insert random anime character>". In the end, there are only a limited number of combinations you can make with looks. Every character will eventually have similarity's with some other character in some other universe. I don't freakin' care >_>

I've already had two such comments on one of my characters and I've barely posted any art of him yet. :P Because I'm always seeing other artists complaining about getting that kind of comment, though, I don't think I mind it as much. Though I did have someone suggest taking ideas from the character they mentioned mine resembled so much, and I thought that was a bit odd. :o

Well. I know for sure that my characters do resemble some others. At least in looks. I don't care at all, since imo characters are more than just looks, and there's a whole story underneath that's actually pretty deep. So I hate it when people judge those characters, just on looks, because they've seen something like that on some anime show :/

Loool, laughed so hard at the "insert random anime character" xD Man, hated that so much xD.

And well, about this, I used to do lots of photomanipulations and just that comment on: I just want to give a constructive criticism okay? well, let's start murdering your art. Let's see... This looks ugly, this just looks out of place. I'm not sure what's this. This colour is ugly. Oh and by the way the whole (and here's where the pretended professional jargon starts) lighting and integration is a bit weird because of.....blahblah

Where the **** is he contructivism? If I can ask? xD

Well... it's quite annoying when your character are compared to anime characters from a series that was created 3 years AFTER I created my storyline. How the hell can I steal a character design that's not even created at that point? I'm not a traveler!

As for critique... I don't mind people telling me what's wrong, when they tell me what actually is wrong. If the colors are wrong, that's okay, but just tell me that, and don't go around telling me "this artwork sucks". That's far too general to do something with.

I don't mind one-word comments and all of that. What bothers the crap out of me is when people leave semi-critiques in which they say the art is terrible, and proceed to offer no suggestion on why or how to fix it. It's not a critique if you're just hatin' :P

"Cute", espicaly on pictures meant to express depression or frustration. I could have a two picture of two lions or something practicaly killing each other, and someone will come along and post "cute". If you can't think of something else to say, why even bother posting a comment?

Though on the forums sometimes, It bugs me a little when the same topics happens over and over. So maybe same topic comments could bother me.

It's not terrible to say "This reminds me of ___" if there's a clear reason why, or it brings up personal emotions, or SOMETHING that validates you telling an artist that. If you're telling them it reminds you of something that brings up an emotion for you, I think that could be a compliment.

But if it's a picture of the forest and you say "This reminds me of Slenderman!" Despite the fact that the picture is well lit and in daylight with no fog or spooky shadows, then you look kind of dumb. So I agree. It should be used sparingly...
