the tutorials were great, but i had already read most of the best ones, by manually searching before i even heard of the hospital. the one on one? for me it was inexistant. I asked for help, got only one answer from the hospital and it was a link (which i had already read) reference for a tutorial.
I was really looking for something else, like.... even someone telling i totally suck would be better than i got.
i asked for some critic on my galery and pointed at one or two pieces and stated I have problems drawing hands and backgrounds.
the reply i got had ONLY a hand drawing tutorial.
I thought I was being clear when i asked for critic, because i wanted to figure how to improve. and i had only stated what i suck at because i didnt want critic about the hands or background, like ok i know i suck at hands and background, tell me about the rest.
oh well. maybe i wasnt clear enough or asked for the request in the wrong place!
as you mentioned that sometimes the person asks for help, get it and never come back again... maybe something similar that happened to me happens to them. and what really happened to me was that i thought the reply i got wasnt adequate. i considered it wasnt really what i asked for. and jsut thought: "ok, this is not what i was expecting" so i just moved on and forgot about it, im not the kind of person who will reply saying "hey this is not what i asked for"
so i dunno... maybe if it was clear in the reply that i would be helped one subject at a time... and maybe if i had been more clear that i didnt want help drawing hands...
