• 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, for the illustration class I'm taking this semester, our midterm/final is to redesign a character from classic literature (how boring, honestly). I redid Ivan Denisovich Shukhov from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, set in ~1960s alternate timeline. As if the cold war actually became a full out war, basically. Also set in like... nuclear winter. I don't know. Whatevs.

i know this is probably just a wip and all (or maybe it isn't idk) but i feel like this would work a bit better if you went full painting and got rid of the hard lines

because some of the values in this are honestly good and parts of the drawing work really well (the foreshortening on his right arm is pretty natural-looking i think) but it's stuck in a bit of a weird place between painting and lineart and i'm not sure if it's working?

This is awesome. It looks kinda messy, but I like the messiness, considering the actual image. You should definitely push the rest of the image to look like that. The expression is also great. The design's solid. Some anatomy issues around the waist area, bla bla bla.
