• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

In Reference To Mary Cassatt

Rough Draft of my final piece for Modern Art History.
Lillie asked us to do a piece in the style/reference of an artist we touched on during the course of the semester.
I chose Mary Cassatt's Reading Le Figaro. (Portrait of the Artist's Mother). 1878. Oil on canvas. Private collection.

(there's a link in case you don't know of the portrait)

I figured since she painted picture of women in a higher standard of the time I figured I'd do the same (ironically I've never drawn my own mother). She's really all I got left and she's been through a hell of a lot in her life time so consider this a tribute if you will while a mandatory project.
You can't see it in this picture (yet), but she's reading the paper at her work desk.
The idea being that she's in her own world not acknowledging the camera so there is little to no connection with the model being used and the viewer (as there would be with eye contact). The similarities also being that I modeled her reading the paper and there's a mirror in the background (well going to be). The manner in which they're dressed for the time is an allusion to the class of both women.
On a side note, this has only taken me a little more than an hour to draw so far.

An updated version of the inspiration piece on Mary Cassatt.
Got this back today and even though it was unfinished I got an A- on it. I'm guessing the minus was because it's not done, but it's an A so I'm happy.
I got the arms, hands and the majority of the lower parts finished, now I've just gotta finish up her scarf, hair, the background and any other small details I want to touch up.
I'm starting to notice that my portraits are beginning to take on a painters quality to them but in pencil (maybe I should start experimenting with PrismaColors...).

i think you'd do good in anatomy/ portrait art, like those people who use charcoal pencils, and pastels. But Prisma Colors are a good start. There damn expensive but i did some work on here with prisma colors. I bet you'd do much better than me
