• 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.

So as you all might have noticed that we're all about the community now and whatnot with all the projects we've been bringing up recently. Some of these have been dedicated towards inspiring activity in otherwise inactive sections. I think TM is probably the most inactive section of this entire forum. So what I'm planning here probably won't go a long way since I imagine I'm probably the only one who really cares anyway, but it doesn't hurt to try.

You may have found that while searching for information that will help make you a better artist, a lot of it doesn't focus on particularly good or relevant things that every artist *should* know. I started digging a lot recently looking for good information, and I actually run into a lot of it every day now. Tumblr, for whatever else that's poop about it, has a lot of helpful artsy-fartsies posting good stuff. So I figured it might be cool to compile a useful database for aspiring artists to learn from.

I don't expect people to contribute too much since TM is pretty much dead atm and it would require too much effort from a random person, so I'll be doing most of it myself and updating this op regularly with files, links, and lists as i find cool stuff.

I urge you all to contribute with whatever helpful things you find. Tutorials, book recommendations, videos, are all fair game as long as they pertain to art and don't suck. I'll start us off by posting what I've compiled so far, in a neat little rar file.
