Contest Rules

The Critical EyeWho else here looks at their artwork more critically than anyone else ever would?? I know that I do.

While it may be cliche, the statement: 'You are your own worst critic' seems to really apply to artists.

This contest is designed for you to submit the one piece you've made that you are most critical of. The one you see the most flaws in, or maybe the one that you feel is your 'worst' work.

Obviously, this contest is not to shame anyone's work (I've posted my 'most criticized' piece as the contest logo) but rather for us to explore vulnerability as artists and work towards the realization that the tiny art critic in our heads is often misguided.

1) All mediums allowed
2) You must be the creator of the piece you submit.
3) Each artist can submit ONE image
4) Voting is open to all Pixel's members

Thanks and good luck to everyone participating! As always feel free to check out my page here on Pixels, or explore my Instagram: @bens_pen
