In Red by Amanda-Graham

:iconbsulzbach:
Vision – Does the artwork present or reflect a point of view, theme or idea?
.: Yes. Thy writing is profound.

Originality – Is the artwork fresh or new in its style, execution or approach? Is it something you haven’t seen before in its particular genre? Does it surprise you?
.: Though it may not be COMMON I can't see absolute originality in it.

Technique – Was the artwork skillfully created? Does the artist exhibit advanced knowledge of the medium and/or bring special focus to the craft of the medium used.
.: You've got some skills with your tools of trade.

Impact – Does the artwork resonate with you or evoke strong emotions? Does it make you think? Does it blow your mind?
.: It's deep, as I said before. The red square is remarkable in its own way.

Deviousness – An average rating based on your selections within Vision, Originality, Technique, and Impact.
.: A really good chunk of art. But let me ask you something, with ALL due respect, why in damn hell did you upload a .pdf? Please use plain text, it looks so more natural with deviant art layout, and I can't copy&paste from this form to read it in a distraction free window. =(

An interesting take on my work ... thank you for taking the time to critique ... I do my works in PDF format for two purposes. First, using PDF format allows me to hyperlink to other 'objects' on the internet, such as the YouTube music linked to this poem's title. Frequently I link to visual artist's works here on dA and to visual artists on the net whose work I feel in some way echos my words or enhances the experience of the work that I offer. That's the significant reason. The less significant reason you have already noted, one cannot simply cut and paste and utilize my words without at least the minimal task of retyping and formatting them. As has been noted frequently here on dA many visual artists works are widely 'stolen'; the writing community is likewise afflicted by the same sort of treachery.

I myself always attribute in full, or as closely to full as I am able, the referential works which I link to; spending time to identify artist and copyright information where available is NOT too much to ask of anyone. I am constantly surprised to find that others do not do the same.

Thank you again for your critique, I appreciate the moments that it took from your day to produce it.

You do not need to show courtesy for my critique. It's pretty straightforward and fast to write one. I understand why you do use .pdf but I can't like it, I needed a dictionary for one word and I couldn't (with Chrome's extensions) drag and drop or copy and paste it. English is not my native so I'm kinda a natural sucker on it.
I liked your poem and was a bit concerned about you not accepting the critique because of the 3/5 in originality.

No problem with that, it's that I'm so accustomed with dragging and dropping and when I saw that it didn't worked inside the extension I got somewhat shaken, I'm on vacation, but when I get the time I swear that I will look all your uploads (or at least some more) and maybe write more critiques for them, if it pleases thee. And I though that the .pdf was mainly because of the text font, while, IMO, literature and any related work does not need, by any means, a font to be good (and a different font or formatting style is definitely not turning shit into gold). So, see ya.
