I've seen a couple of questions today asking for opinions on their art. All drawings they showed us were poorly made, with little to no technique and definitely without a drop of talent at all, but no one dared to say something constructive or just deliberately say they weren't good. Why is that so? Do all people on here simply lack the guts to be honest or are they just being the average PC commenter as to avoid hurting people's feelings?

Truth be told, constructive criticism is a difficult skill to hone, and one which requires considerable guts *to* hone, as you're developing an ability to give instruction without it coming off in a way that will make the artist feel like they suck. Until that skill is sufficiently mastered, you risk causing a lot of negative feelings and nobody wants to be responsible for that.0

Because truth hurts and some people can't say it. Or they know nothing about drawings, so they end up saying it's good when it's not.0
