Okay so so so I have a suggestion, please hear me out, I personally need tips on anatomy, and so I'm going to ask if you could review someone called Cyarin so that I could get a better feel for it. Her anatomy is great and I just need some tips at the moment, so that I could improve my art, thank you so so much.

He'll probably tell you to go back to basics on wolf & human anatomy with a little side note on how your shading is meh and then apologize and encourage you to improve.

I can see how much you tried to improve your videos. And I think this new aproach is great! I just want to say that your old videos weren't bad either, I know you got a lot of hate for being suposedly 'too harsh' or 'rude' before and maybe that was one of your reasons for changing the way you say things but...well...those people just didn't have the same type of humor as you. You don't have to change yourself too much just for the sake of calming down a couple of haters. The old videos were amazing, and this new one is too. If you want to improve yourself and change, I swear I will support you with my life. But if you ever feel pressured to stop doing something that you like and have fun doing, don't stop because of rude comments. Again, Im not saying this video is bad. In fact it was really helpful. I just want you to know that actual fans will support you whatever you do.

Here's the thing with the hate his old videos got, most of it wasn't justified. Nowadays, the disliking for them being pandering to children in his newer stuff is understandable.

Dang, people really are brainwashed by your lord and savior Solar.
If your entire counterargument revolves around my intentionally terrible grammar in that comment and the fact I do't think he's trying harder, you're an idiot and your argument has no meaning to me. Also, Solar's trying too hard to stay trendy and PC by not even bothering to be aggressive in places. I get why, but his fanbase including you two is literal scum.

As an artist, I can see where SolarSands is coming from. I don't always agree with his critiques and that's perfectly fine. However, brainwashing is a term to describe an action of someone FORCING information into people. If SolarSands was FORCING people to change their opinion to become similar to his, I could understand your argument. Considering a lot of Deviant Art rant channels are critics of "edgy" characters, knock off "OCs", or just down right attacking one specific deviant, it's a bit refreshing to see some criticism that has nothing to do with how one portrays a character. In fact, I think he's done a fair amount of critics on fetish art regarding the proportions and shading rather than critic the interest of the fetish itself and that's saying something. The worst he's said is for one of the artists to mark the piece as mature content, which is understandable since deviant art seems to have a large population of underage members.
The problem that most people have is that they have paper skin or feel they are "entitled" to fight for the people in question because "it's their artstyle". I have friends that critique my art, and I don't mean "Haha, your art is great! Keep it up!" I mean statements like "Hey, your anatomy is a bit off", "I think you've missed some shading there", or "You know, this isn't as great as some of the art that you've done before and here's why". I don't cry about it, I take the information given to me and I try again with more reference material and a bit of a better understanding of where to take my next approach at creating another piece.
Considering most reviews, this is one of his better videos. It's more mature in it's approach, he seems more calm and has his thoughts better collected. Great on him, it's a video that show's us where he stands in his knowledge of the basics and what his art may and/or may not lean towards, should he produce one in the near future.
I will say that not all his reviews are perfect and there are moments where I do have the occasional disliking to how he approaches certain pieces. The "Ugh.. I just.. I can't.." and then moving on to the next piece of one of them. I get it, it's humorous, but it's a joke that's become stale from overuse in other rant channels and it really feels like someone taking a jab at an art piece just for the heck of it. A rare occurrence, but it's humor that one should steer clear from if their channel is meant for critique.
In short, some of us aren't interested in using petty or redundant insults and would like an educated response. And yes, I'm looking at the 2 previous deviants that seem to find humor in primitive bickering towards you, rather than giving a detailed and "possibly" insightful opinion. If you can understand what they're typing, then make a proper rebuttal instead of correcting their grammar or childishly bashing them.  IRideAPussMobile Bluwing1004

I'm all in favor of actual constructive criticism, and I am glad Solar gives some. What I had an issue with those is his fanbase and the fact he sucks up to them. I just feel there should be some more edge when it comes to these critiques so it doesn't come off as boring or annoying. Shoving memes isn't inherently funny.

Although that may be true, at the end of the day what he's the one that produces the content. Critiquing him will only change how he presents the final product and that's if he even chooses to. For the most part, this may not be sucking up to the fanbase as much as it is him experimenting in other methods of carrying out his critiques. I do understand your distaste of the memes. They're weak humor, at best, but he doesn't seem to pull them as much anymore. I do think it's a little too early to say what exactly he's going for at the moment, but what I am certain of is that he will try implementing other methods in the near future, especially in humor. It's easy to pull off a simple critique, it's a bit harder to gather some material for humor and pull it off properly.

I apologise for being childish earlier, but I disagree with what you're saying. I don't get how Solar is 'sucking up to his fanbase' by improving his video style this way. Solar either changed the style solely because he wanted to, which if is true would be great, or he changed it this way because of the people who were complaining that his critique was too rude. Now, those haters who always said solar was too rude probably weren't exactly his FANS. Those were haters, which didn't have any good arguments to make. The fanbase wasn't the ones to say that. The fanbase is the admitedly cringey group of people who beg for art reviews or give random compliments. When Solar changed his video style, he was either wanting to improve or feeling pressured to change due to the dislikes. Not sucking up to the fanbase.
And for your second statement that you think the critque was better when it was 'edgy'because the new style will get boring or annoying concerns me. Sure, the old videos were more funny to be honest. It was solar's edgy way of speaking and humorous sarcasm which convinced me to join this fanbase in the first place. And yes random memes isn't the best humor. But the new videos aren't suddenly being rid of humor because solar doesn't want to try. He is simply focusing more on critism now instead of the joking. He always said that he doesn't consider himself an expert critic, and that he considers his channel more of a half-critique half-edgy humor thing. Hes simply increasing the serious critique. I can't change your opinion on his new humor. If you think this is too boring for you, you can leave this fanbase freely.
Well, now for your first comment. "This was a no gud vidya, try better." 
You are telling him to try better while blankly stating that this video is bad. Okay you have your own opinion about the video, thats not a problem. But 'try better'? This makes it sound like Solar isn't trying very hard, and that he needs to work harder to make his channel decent. Even if that wasn't the exact meaning of your words, that is what they looked like. Solar is working hard, thats what I want to get clear. If you think hes not working hard even now, I'm pretty sure that your standards are a bit too high for judging channels. He didn't just randomly think 'hey im gona make a vid which is really serious and boring because haters said im rude.'
he thought this over. A lot of time passes preparing for a video and he must have thought of this during that time. He must have thought preparing the script. He must have thought before he tweeted he wanted to do something new. He tried, and this is the result. You may not like it, but this is the video he came up with. Maybe you hate it. But at least appreciate all the work, the thinking, and the effort and time put into this creation. I'm sorry if my first comment was rude and stupid. Looking back at it now, it does make me look like an idiot. 
Solar tried hard to make this, and he just couldn't put all the edginess into the video at the same time as the serious critique. Thats just what I wanted to point out.
then again my comment could just come off as mindless nonesence to you again..which is quite probable.

Second statement: If my videos are any indication, I feel like a video filled mostly with critique when it's intending to be that is a good idea. What I'm saying here is that Solar could at least try to put a little jokes and grit into it and not make it annoying. 
And for the "try better" thing, I'm really saying this in the sense of trying to make a good video, not the effort into it. Heck, I feel like he tried too hard in that video. This is evident through the obvious attempt to find a flaw (one which he praised earlier), and the shallow humor throughout. I don't get how he compared Cryptid's art to clipart, especially knowing the quality is noticeably better. Plus, the fact she does them every day is an excuse for this. Now I don't consider to be a big fan of her work, but I admire the attention to detail and work she does in a short time.

I think I'm one of the few/only people that enjoyed Solar Sands' older Browsing DeviantArt videos. I'm not saying they weren't... Quite harsh, but they were entertaining!
I like this new approach too, it's a bit more... Mature(?) I THINK that's the word I'm looking for. As you aren't repeatedly bashing the artwork like you used to seem to do.
As you can tell... I love your channel. 😂
Why am I putting so much time into a single comment? I honestly don't know.

What's the point of reviewing a well known deviant? It's more attention wanting than anything, because they have a cute style. Seems like any critiques you say would be for your own self advertisement. I would look at we'll and unknown people. It's like being the KingStar of reviewing artists.
