I really appreciate criticism with my work as at least I know I won't make a fool of myself if it's not 100% right. When I first got minor negative criticism during my time at University I did take it to heart especially as through college my work just got better and better but perhaps I didn't get the right criticism at college. But of course everyone has their own opinions when it comes to art.
...whoever is giving you criticism about your work only wants the best for you and to bring the best you can do within your work.
