• 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.

This is just a really quick rough sketch of what's to come. It's very personal for me as you can see, because I'm using myself as the model for this one (as well as 3 - 4 others).
Once I've added more detail to it you'll be able to see some voodoo skeleton paint showing through on my body as well as a scythe in my right hand (holding it behind myself).
The idea of this piece being that everyone's got to fight with Time, Mortality/Grim Reaper/Death is just a part of life whether you're aware of it or not.
No matter how hard you try one can never truly escape it.

I'm kinda starting to not like the medium I'm working on though, Bristol Board Smooth isn't very "smooth" when it comes to shading and the tones tend to smudge rather than blend unlike Vellum paper (I didn't realize I had a different type of paper until I started drawing, sadly).

I'll be using this as a model for the skeleton designs I'll be drawing on my skin. I'm unsure if I'm going to color the rest of my skin solid black or if I'll just have my normal skin tone, either way I know how to make the details pop out.

Can't wait to see it when you put the themes in it, pretty awesome concept. Right now I'd just say work on the head a bit more, it kiiiiiiiiiiiiinda looks a tad bit small. May just be the odd perspective, may be you having wide shoulders.

I thought the same thing when I first started but it's just because my head it tilted backwards and my hair's slicked back (which you can't see much of) so you don't get a full on perspective of proportion. The fact that the reference photo was taken beneath me makes things seem a little bit more off.
It's a little off putting I will admit, but once I put in the details everything should start look as it's supposed to.

To me, his nose looks humongous. But I guess that's because of the perspective.
I do love this, though, and can't wait for it to be finished. ♥
