To be fair, you don't need to be an artist or designer to have an opinion on how something looks.

why shouldn't they? If you're a commercial artist then your audience will largely be non artists, if they don't like it then you haven't done your job well.

On that note, nobody should criticize the President of the U.S. unless they have also been President. And nobody should criticize poorly-made food (including refusing to eat it!) unless they are professional chefs. :roll:

"There is a common misconception among fans and people having worked in a particular field that non-experts are not qualified to comment on their work. While it helps to have some background information or experience, it is certainly not required. It doesn't take a carpenter to recognize a poorly-made table, after all. (Helpful hint: If a table spontaneously falls apart, things probably didn't go according to procedure.)"

When it comes to art is always better to have at least some fundamental notions about it. You can acquire them either by doin art yourself or by studying art and the history of artistic movements. Our goal is an informed opinion, after all, isn't it?

You're more than welcome to dislike a design from a personal standpoint, but when non-artists sit there and try to deduce why these designs are poor as though they have some definitive proof , it usually comes off as pretty silly and ignorant[code][/code]

I can agree with this.

I have no idea how to design a uniform but I can look at the finished product and say whether it looks good or not.

Just like I can eat meal and dislike it even if I don't know how to improve the recipe to make it better.

If Superman played basketball, your design would be perfect.


Well, he'd have to drop that cape. And replace the "S" with a number.


A "2" might work.



2uperman would be the best basketball player ever. His air dunks would be incredible.
