I am kind of expecting other people to join in in the critiquing process, as one persons opinion may differ from anothers', it's good to get a wide variety of opinions...
But keep in mind, "critique" is NOT Bashing.
There's a difference between "Hm... She sounds a bit weak, maybe you should add some vibrato..." and "You suck at using Miku!".
This goes for the people receiving critique as well. If someone says something negative about your works, they are not necessarily bashing. If you don't think you can handle someone telling you some thing's off, I'd advise you not to post.
At the same time, critique also does not mean praise.
You can't just... Say "Oh that's great", you really need to point out problems. That's why people are here, right?
...Okay, done with precautions. Go, post away!
You can join in the critiquing at any time, but if you think you will be frequenting this thread to help, you are allowed to join the "Board of Editors" so people can ask you directly for help. Just fill in a form and I'll add you.
[i]Some stuff about you[/i]

Ask them for help with anything on topic!

Hey, Halo here. Made this thread because I know some people like to get real critique, that YouTube and DeviantArt don't always provide. One of the three jobs I want to go for in the future is editing, either art or writing. I seem to have a bit of a built in knack for it. I am willing to give out critique on anything Vocaloid/UTAU related. Of course, not owning Vocaloid, I can't give technical support to any problems I bring up on that, but I can and will help with UTAU and Art to the fullest of my abilities!
Preferred name: smeen
Specialties: Writing and stuff like that.
Uhm... I don't know if I can be of any help. But I will try my best. I' ve been writing for my own, for fanfiction and for school for over 6 years so I suppose I can help you with some things. I also can try to help with other things, but I'm not really good in designing so I don't promise being of any help in that department.
Preferred name: Ezri
Specialties: Music (formal training all my life<3) and art. Character design.
I'll try my best to give helpful critiques! ^^; I want to go into design at some point, so art is really my main thing. I've taken some private lessons for art, but mostly I go by what I see. ouo; (People tell me I have a good eye for things, but I don't know how accurate that is.) I also know a ton about music, and love it, so I'll be able to help out with that too!

Umm, I really hope I'll be able to help! ^__^;; Ask me anything about music, it's basically been my life for as long as I can remember and I've been told I have a really good ear for it. I can also help with original songs (I'm not great with lyrics but I'll do my best. ^__^;; ) I haven't been using UTAU too terribly long (about half a year?) but I think I've gotten the hang of it and I'll let you know if something seems amiss.
Preferred name: Mienai
Specialties: UTAU and sound mostly
I really hope I can be of help~ I've only been using UTAU about half a year but I pick things up really quickly and I already know a lot about the program, and hopefully I can use that to tell you how you can make your UTAUloid sound better~ I can also try and critique a little on art as well, but I don't know so much about that ^^;
Preferred name: Yanyu (Or anything thou wishes to call meh~<3)
Specialties: Art, design and crazy fashion (...I have a passion for fashion), Utauloids, writing...?
I love to help people, I've been doing a level art in college this year and have improved all areas of my art far - although I still have much to learn in digital; art is my forte but I have been using utau for 1 year+ now (too shy to post anything of my utau though..)? I can also help critic english writing, if it's needed.
Username: Yume Barauta
Preferred name: Yume (But call me whatever you want. :3)
Specialties: Art, writing... UTAUloids too, I suppose
I'll do my best to be of help! Unfortunately, I have a hard time telling people when they do something wrong... But I'll try! I've been using UTAU for about as long as most of the Overseas UTAU pioneers but Yume was my first success. If I had done Yuki or Sen and Ran or even Chi properly, I would have been among the first Overseas UTAU users. I'm still not great at the program though. xD;;
I will be organizing these into categories soon enough. ^^- Glad you guys are showing much intrest.
