2 deviants said Most of the time...because I don't think a comment is worthwhile unless I give constructive critique.
2%
1 deviant said Only if the artist has loads of people saying great things about their work and I think they need to hear something negative to stop them getting full of themselves.
2%
1 deviant said No, cause I'm scared of offending people.

Hmm..
I have to admit if something is especially good I always comment and try and find something bad to say as well just so its more interesting!

no, because i can't really chat. i'd say something that would sound intelligible because of the long words...and they'd think...okay...maybe she makes sense...and then go to my gallery to see MY work...and *blank*

Art is objective and my views on things may or may not line up with the artist, so unless I truly think something I have to offer would make a huge impact on their work I just let them know that I do like what I see.

It also depends on my mood :)

That's a good way of looking at things. There's no set formula for art, and it's so open to interpretation that there is no right or wrong way of creating.

if i like something then i'll make a point of saying so, if i don't then i won't bother.....i think that being a ''critic'' is a fucking shocking waste of energy, why pick holes in something that someone has put some effort into and is proud enough to put their name too... i think the world would be a much better place if we spoke about somethings merit rather than it's faults...........tx

"i think the world would be a much better place if we spoke about somethings merit rather than it's faults"

I really love that statement...its so true, and something that more people should try to live by.

Only if I see something that I think could use a little attention to help make their work even better.

I try to, but I only comment on things I'm really impressed with. I mean, I don't try and pretend I'm all clever and say all stupid crap when I haven't got a clue, but I try and suggest things when it's a medium I'm familiar with. I never know if I'm going to be flamed if I say, "Oh its very good but ... is a bit wonky" or "It's great, but some parts look a bit out of proportion." Even though I don't have room to speak on the latter ;)
