First, our Graphic Arts Critics.
Areas of Expertise: Comics theory, illustration
Specific Credentials: Sequential art major
Remarks: A couple of years ago there was a survey in Britain where 27% of students that Winston Churchill was an actual person. 57% believed in Sherlock Holmes. As far as I'm concerned that is awesome.
Name: Evilagram (Aka. aGrimVale)
Areas of Expertise: Animation, Pixel Art, Digital Painting, Drawing
Years of Experience: 7 (started in 2004)
Specific Credentials: Elected to administration of 7 previous websites, Creation and maintenance of of the largest Pixel Art tutorial list on the net (link), a year's worth of figure drawing classes, and a lot of practice.
Remarks: I'm an old hat when it comes to the pixel community online. I've read hundreds of tutorials, dozens of books, and scanned through thousands of articles on a vast amount of artistic knowledge.
I am an intensely harsh critic, however I do not intend malice. I simply hate seeing blatant, overt, easily corrected mistakes. Regrettably, these tend to be very common. Another thing I'm unlikely to tolerate is blatant and tasteless use of clichés.
My current favorite comic is Berserk by Miura Kentaro. I'm a big fan of fantasy and sci-fi settings. A thing that I universally love to see in comics is doing the research and showing their work.
Name: Robert L. Lynch
Areas of Expertise: Graphic Design, Art History, Photography
Years of Experience: 10-ish years
Specific Credentials: B.S. in Graphic Communication from the University of Findlay; Minor in Art History, heavy classwork in photography. Graduated from Sentinel Career Center with certification in Computer-Aided Drafting. Writer of the mixed-media sprite comic Heroes Inc. since 2004. Founding admin of the Pixel Pagoda.
Remarks: Here's a couple clever remarks... "Madness takes its toll; please have exact change ready." "Never look back; they might be gaining on you." "It's not hard to meet expenses, they're everywhere."

Next, our Literary Critics
Areas of Expertise: Writing, Editing, a bit of Pixel Art.
Specific Credentials: Editor-in-chief of several English Journalism class-related projects, former sprite comic author, extensive amounts of reading and editing throughout high school and college classes. Don't expect anything like a major, then again most of us are in our late teens-early twenties so yeah.
Remarks: I don't consider myself a harsh critic. Basically, don't suck and you don't have to worry about me being harsh xP
Area of Expertise: Writing. Pixel Art.
Specific Credentials: Has been writing for at least 13 years.
I am the odd man out of any group.
I expect very little of people, so I guess I don't make a very good critic.
I'm a lifeguard from Orlando Florida, working on a degree in Biology.
That's about it.

Areas of Expertise: Writing, Composing, Tap-dancing
Years of Experience: I've been writing as long as I can remember.
Isn't a half bad writer. (Nope, he's all bad wololetc..)
Is a root admin so he can do whatever he wants anyway.
Has consumed a shit-ton of media in his days.
Once said something funny. No really, ask DB, he was there.
I'm probably often going to be the guy who hates things everyone else loves,
or loves something everyone else hates. That or be the guy who is neutral forever.
I have an odd sense of humor and also an odd sense of everything. I can be very picky
and dislike something for reasons that are beyond stupid. I'll do my best to ignore those reasons.
Also, I'm probably going to slip into T.V tropes speak quite often.
Irregular Days - My new and shitty personal website.
