I think going forward, this topic will work better if artists - be they new and shy, established and wise, or wherever in between - post links to their works and ask for critiques about those specific pieces.

I don't think people are going to feel comfortable going out of their way to offer critiques out of the blue to artists who might not be expecting them. Well, not anyone who has any meaningful criticism to give, that is ^^
That was what I was assuming we were going to do. xD
