Pennywise
Pennywise is a 16x20 airbrush on claybord. No digital work was done to create this piece. I used Georgie's paper boat to break up the red ballon in this piece of fan art. Sorry about the copyright symbol. I know it distracts a bit.

Man, you're a professional, and your art looks like a professional. I like it. Keep up with the great work!

I know many people on deviantart are easy to please, but to be honest, I'm not one of those, but I can be a bit of a doormat sometimes and be afraid to tell someone their art looks bad, but I genuinely think your art is really well done

So, I really really like it!

Thanks! I really appreciate you taking the time to post that. I hesitate to post work here sometimes. I feel like it's open season for criticism. I rarely get anything bad, and I consider the source when I do get them. 
It's nice to check in and hear something nice!

Oh, you're welcome! Your art genuinely does look like a professional.

I think the people who go out to shoot others down on DeviantArt are either misguided or trolls, Why I say misguided for the first one is because there are DA YouTubers who (in 2016) went to mediocre art and fetish art and started insulting the art and sometimes even the artist. There are still people who do that, but to a lesser extent, what I would do is treat them like internet trolls and give them no reaction and block them if you feel you need to.

And it is nice to hear something nice! (although I feel like I get too many compliments, I want constructive criticism really bad, and I only got it once...)

I've been working professionally for years. Book covers, airbrush magazine tutorials, comic covers, and commission work. It's a long road, that's for sure. Very competitive.

I always look to see if there is any validity to criticism. Sometimes there is, but most often, it's people with far less training and achievement that want to feel better about their inadequacy by taking a shot at your work publicly. Typically bully behavior. 
I think you're right. You just ignore it, or block them.
