• 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, i figured I need to learn how to draw being a graphic designer an all. And well learning all these things about smudging, cross hatching, blending, gesture drawing is just boring to me. So, i decided I'd take up a drawing pad and trace on images that interest me and are something I wish to draw.

As much as tracing isn't really learning how to draw, it did teach me how I want to create my drawing style.

I noticed that I hate creating curvy lines that are flowing and all but i instinctively started drawing with semi-straight lines and angling them to create curves. After that I outlined the image again and layering them over again like tracing paper actually provided the texture and value needed.

I'll probably trace draw for 5 pictures at most a day for this whole year, and maybe soon. I'll just need a reference image and no longer need to trace

Oh my. <3 I'm in love with your foxes and Ninetails the most. <3 Absolutely gorgeous for a trace drawing. It's neat to hear how you know your own style by using such a method too. :D Foxes for the Win! <3
