>>94250412>If someone makes a criticism, who they are has nothing to do with its validity
their criticism is valid to themselves. there's an issue that you cant jive with and that's your problem. that criticism is valid to you.
but whether or not the person you criticize should listen to you, does depend on who the critic is. for one, is the critic part of the target audience? does the critic have experience?
furthermore, is the criticism valid? are they criticizing something that's an intentional stylistic art choice? do you feel their criticism doesn't apply?
pic related is a self portrait of pablo picasso (according to google images)
this looks like shit. i would tell picasso to fix the shape of the head, make the eyes smaller, work on his lineart, etc. should pablo picasso listen to my criticism?
my ultimate point here is that an artist should be free to ignore criticism without everyone calling them egotistical. it's his art, and he should do what he wants with it>yes but he's providing for consumers. he should listen to them
no, he doesn't need to. what he's doing is working for him fine. he's appealing to the masses who dont give a shit that all the heads look the same. you thinking he should take the time to cater to you just because you think he should do it differently IS egotistical. if he doesn't want to accept your criticism, the response should be "alright" and then you decide whether YOU want to continue consuming his product
