• 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.

  • We have brought back Future of KINGDOM HEARTS as our main Kingdom Hearts section. Discuss any projects including Phase 2 developments, the rumored Disney Plus series, all TWEWY-related news, theories about the future of Kingdom Hearts, and any general topics in this section. For anything related to Kingdom Hearts Memory of Melody, please discuss it in the KINGDOM HEARTS Memory of Melody section.
  • Although unrelated to Kingdom Hearts, we are aware that there might be fans of The Last of Us on our forums. We ask that you please keep all spoilers for The Last of Us 2 spoiler-tagged. Any untagged spoilers will result in a temporary ban from the site.

Hey there, I don't often post things, but i'm keen to advance my skills as I will be studying graphic design at university next year - i'd like to get some feed back to improve my skills.

I started this by following a tutorial - but got bored and went off on my own little tangent. XD

Sorry - I know it's not amazing - i wasn't really sure how to go on from here though. :/

This is pretty cool, sis. I like how you have the triangles as the focus. REally loving the colors, too. Nice usage of the stars ^_^
I can't bring myself to give critique because this is just coolio. :)

o_O are you guys actually related?

anyway I love work like this, it looks stunning. also was machina meant to be there because all i see is rem
Well he is there - waaay in the faded background on the bottom right hand corner of the fog.
But It was mainly meant to be a Rem-centred picture

And no we're not related - its just what we call each other.
^_^
He's ma bro man!

this is really nice.
i think the border should be taken off, and the second triangle outline should be a thinner outline.
also, emphasizing that butterfly more on the piece would make it really pop. maybe take its wing pattern to create a sweet texture.
some of it seems over-sharpened too, but it's not that big of a deal.
overall, it's really cool you should post more!

Oh really? Well thanks!

I really do appreciate the feedback - and see everything you mentioned.
Sometimes it's hard to notice until it's pointed out to you - especially if you've been staring at the thing for hours >.<
That was my first piece with this kinda style - i'd like to explore it further i think.
I'm hoping to advance my skills a little further as i plan to study graphic design at a specialised university next year.
Which is why I'm very grateful for your feedback - so thank you for your time

To add on to what krank said about the triangle, I think the edges should be sharp as opposed to rounded. Assuming you used photoshop either a stroke set to inside would work or a selection of the solid triangle and then edit>stroke. This is a good piece though, keep it up.

PS7, But yes I get what you're saying - it adds to the symmetry that's lacking from the piece - and now know better how to fix it! ^_^
That's why it helps to have multiple sets of eyes - cause sometimes i find myself staring at it for ages - knowing there's a problem, but not being able to pick out what it is.
So for that reason - I really appreciate the feed back. Thanks! ^_^
