I really like this thread thanks for starting it @Ari!
Something I have found helpful is to include “I” statements and a “why” for your critic. For example if you feel the story or art work is unclear, or the tone or timing is off try to be specific about why this is so. “I feel that the story gets losts at this point” or “I don’t understand what is happening in this panel because the characters’ expression is hidden”.
It helps the writer or artist to understand why you think things should change from what they have done, and they can decided to include your changes if they agree.
A point of note though, some might not agree and that it their prerogative. We are all here to help make each other better and help out, that doesn’t mean any critic or comment is manditory. So we can both take and gave critics with a positive attitude.
That’s my 2 cents anyway. 😉
