The battle of the critters was huge! Those who got on board really threw themselves into the team mentality and I hope those who did made some new friends as a result! 

Despite a great effort from the Gnomes, who started so far behind then perked up higher and higher, it was the fairies whose last day attack really made then undefeatable! Although the Pixies and Elves made good efforts, nothing would deter the fairy hoarde! In fact, every team reached over 100 critiques, which is pretty phenomenal!

The captains for each team have been absolutely marvellous. From team encouragement, journals, glitter showers and even decent guidance, they have done more than I could have asked of them. Please give your love to:

Individual Results and Prizes


 The original goal was to hit 12 critiques in 12 days, but as you can see there were more than a few people that excelled that, more than once over! In fact, records went beyond previous years- we once had one deviant reaching 75 critiques last year, but bluediscord has now doubled this, setting the new record!

So here are the results for individuals. 
These are presented in order of total critiques.

Final Thoughts



You know what is crazy? I wasn't even going to do Critmas this year! I am so glad I had some persuasion from others and I have really enjoyed doing it this year, so whether you were giving, receiving or cheerleading critique I thank you. Critique is a gift so many artists desire, and events like this really highlight that. I hope those who have received critique as part of this event make good use of the thoughts shared and those who participated are motivated to keep giving! Please leave feedback on the event if you wish, but for now, relax and celebrate this amazing thing you all did here. :heart:

Thank you very much to the following groups for supporting this awesome project:

Are there going to be any workshops soon?  I just found this group and it sounds wonderful, but it doesn't look like you guys have been very active.

I am depressed.
I need validation.


I want miracles.
Can I expect them?
