When you ask for a response to your artistic work, what kinds of responses do you like?
For example, if you ask someone to critique a work of writing, do you want someone to ghost write you? That is, reform your lines so they make sense to the rewriter? Do you want them to give you line by line critiques, but leave you to make changes? Do you want them to give you more general criticisms and more general suggestions about what to do, but leave it to you to either take their critiques or not?
How would you respond to each of these kinds of criticisms? Is there some other kind of criticism you would prefer? Do you just want, a thumbs up/thumbs down response? Do you just want encouragement regardless of what the person thinks?
What kind of response would you like from your ideal critic? What kinds of responses drive you out of your mind?
This question is in the General Section. Responses must be helpful and on-topic.
