• 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.

Foreground effects are nice, just need to work on the background. And adding some more contrast would help.

The main thing that bugs me is the dark curve cutting through the middle of the sig. If you want to use it, make sure you put the curve so that it flow in the direction of lightning.
I agree with apple jaxx about the contrast too. Definitely throw in some darker shades into the background.

Also try to use simpler fonts for your text. The font you chose just seems too bubbly and doesn't fit the style of the sig.

Play around with the colors. Gradient maps and filters are good for that. Though the colors you have now may work well for whatever the original stock photo was, the current colors seem a bit iffy for a tag. For the brushing: try brushing and erasing, brushing more, erasing more, etc. It will help you get a more concise feel of what you really want.

You just to play around with things more.

It's not bad, just try to work on a few things;

lighting & depth; these two kinda go hand in hand. make it seem as if the light in the tag is coming from somewhere. this adds depth and makes it look better. play around with how to do this (burn/dodge, blur/sharpen etc)

colors: the colors look pretty but work on new color combinations and accenting certain colors

flow: the tag and its effects are a bit messy. if you use the natural flow of the render and match the effects to it, your tags will be more aesthetically pleasing and such :)
