Comparison Monkey by TVsKyle Comparison Monkey by TVsKyle
All artists know the Comparison Monkey. He's anyone who comes along, makes a comparison and says nothing more. Artists hate the Comparison Monkey. He is thoughtless and rude. Surely you can try harder than HIM, right?

There is many a monkey in my class. I tried explaining the comparison monkey to my instructor in my concept art for animation class (making a comparison and leaving it at that). She said 'consider it a compliment'. When critiques rolled around, I drew a little comparison monkey on the board. Most of the class consists of beginning artists, and I am not that great with coming up with an in-depth critiques on the spot, so the only feedback I could give these people at that moment was to simply practice the fundamentals of drawing, color, etc.. Thus I stayed quiet for the most part. She called me out on my quietness and and said something along the lines that it wasn't fair that I was criticizing people for trying to give compliments. Lol...

I need to get out of community college.

Boy oh boy, I hate comparison monkeys. Well, maybe less "comparison", more "actually thinks and insists my character is this character, and defends with 'yes he is' or 'I thought he was'".

I used to make comparisons, but vowed never to again for fear of becoming a comparison monkey. Now I only do it in the rare occasions it's truly necessary/actually helpful rather than "lol[character]"

There is nothing worse than a Monkey that just goes with "LOOKS LIKE" and defends itself with "Im givin a Constructive Criticism!"...
So it's like a no-way for an artist... You feel bad. But you can do nothing because if you will say something against that - Monkey just goes UKIKIKI~~~ and repeats "Constructive Criticism" - line and artist looks like an asshole that "Do Not Want To Learn And Listen to Critics"...
Many thanks for this.
