Welcome To Comment-Trade.


This group is dedicated to providing its members with feedback to help them grow as artists. It is all too easy for deviants to favorite artworks instead of providing those artists with comments. This group will aim to offer all deviants, regardless of their skill level or media, a chance to be given comments so long as they return the favor.

Rules & Guidelines:

:bulletred: If a comment or critique is given, you should return the favor.

:bulletred: Submit deviations which you would like to receive helpful feedback on.

:bulletred: Sign '-Comment Trade: Please Return the Favor' at the end of your comment to indicate it was given through this group. You can also post the icon to the group, as well.

:bulletred: Submit deviations which you would like to receive helpful feedback on.

:bulletred: To ensure a steady yet slower flow of deviations, only one deviation is permitted per week.


As this group is brand new, there will only be a few galleries to start with. As the group grows, then the galleries will be expanded.

As the group is nearly a month old, it's time for an introductory blog.  The group was born from a general frustration that I'm sure many of you share - the discrepancy between views and comments.  Many deviations will receive hundreds of views, and will be lucky to receive even one or two comments - let alone any insightful ones.  The aim of this group is to not only provide its members with a guaranteed source of feedback for their deviations - but a place to grow and be recognized, regardless of their talents or skill level.  Very few artists will be able to improve without the feedback or encouragement of their community - an idea I wish to contribute to with this group.


Due to my firm belief in the mission of this group, I've gone ahead and purchased a Super Group membership, in order to assist in the group's expansion - as I feel everyone should have the chance to participate.  All I ask of you all as members is to participate - and comment where you can, in accordance with the rules.  If any of you wish to invite users to the group, you're more than welcome to it, and it'd be very much appreciated.
In order to clarify on the purpose of the 'Featured' folder, it's current design is to showcase those users who regularly provide feedback, so please refrain from submitting your artwork to that category until you've contributed consistently to commenting on member's deviations.

That being said, below is a reposting of the guidelines.

Rules & Guidelines:

:bulletred: If a comment or critique is given, you should return the favor.

:bulletred: Submit deviations which you would like to receive helpful feedback on.

:bulletred: Sign '-Comment Trade: Please Return the Favor' at the end of your comment to indicate it was given through this group.  You can also post the icon to the group, instead.

:bulletred: Submit deviations which you would like to receive helpful feedback on.

:bulletred: To ensure a steady yet slower flow of deviations, only one deviation is permitted per week.

As this group is brand new, there will only be a few galleries to start with.  As the group grows, then the galleries will be expanded.

Members are free to comment on the guidelines, as well as on this journal entry.  If you'd wish to provide any ideas or possible changes to be made to the group, feel free to do so.

Thank you so much for those that have contributed to the cause thus far, I look forward to seeing what you all do in the future!

I currently have a piece in a contest on Google+ (not deviantart) and instead of comments, I need +1s to be considered for it! If you give me a +1, I'll happily provide a thorough comment on one of your pieces in return! Very little effort in exchange for feedback! Sound good?

+1 on this link, then reply to this comment let me know you did so I can comment on one of yours! [link]

It's still active! Deviations just move slowly.
