I get frustrated when people say that you (or anyone) can’t critique something because “you couldn’t do any better.”
Or you can’t dare to find fault in a work of art (or otherwise) if you yourself haven’t been published, or had to do the same thing, or are aren’t “as good of an artist.”
If that were true, critics of any kind would be completely worthless. “You have to do it yourself and better” as a prerequisite to point out something problematic is absurd. Do film critics not have valid evaluations of a film if they haven’t made a movie themselves? Of course not.
The validity of criticism doesn’t come from one’s own ability to create something in the same situation or of the same caliber. I can’t believe I’m seeing artists use this argument to dismiss criticism. Just because someone is a “master” at their craft does not mean they get it right all the time or that they should be immune to artistic critique.
Are critics going about it the right way? Not always. Are all critiques valid? No, because critique is always subjective in one way or another.. But they should be evaluated fairly, and not dismissed with comments of “well, let’s see you do any better!”
Especially when people en masse see the same problems.

It was “Damien” throughout all of Tiny Titans. It was wrong in Scribblenauts Unmasked. And also I want to say it was wrong in some promo things for Son of Batman movie.

Just gave our dog a bath. Still have quite a few chores to do around the house, and I’m planning on meeting my mom at the gym later.
Changed out my bandage this morning. Even with one on, it really burns in the shower. So I’m a little worried that getting sweaty working out will be bad for it, too.
Also, I can’t sleep in my favorite position (FACE DOWN) because it puts too much pressure on it and it hurts. :c
