• 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 wanted to make this for the DM veterans like myself to see if people still do graphic and traditional deisgn, and in which ways they are utilizing their talent. It's been a long time since I've seen people like Eli, Sean, and Pablo in here. It'd be cool if coming back to the section and talking with each other sparked a comeback for DM.

Personally, I haven't made any form of "forum graphic design" (signatures, avatars, etc) in over a year. I've tried, but it's been pretty shit. However, I've been making artwork for music albums under the moniker "BLKFRM" over the last two years and have made money off of it and am now starting to work with popular artists, such as the rapper Blu.

I have to go pick up my girlfriend from work now, but I'll talk about it more and hope I'll see some familiar faces get in here.

I just started up again, since I'm finally on break. What's weird is my name is Eli, but I'm sure you aren't talking about me.

Oh jeez. Unfortunately, I haven't made anything in PS (in terms of graphic design) in a long time. I have been so wrapped up in school and swimming that I have had barely any time at all, plus it's drained all of my inspiration. Now that I am on break, I may decide to see if I can put something together. If I do, I'll definitely post it.

On a side note, it makes me sad that this place has decreased in activity so much over the past few months :/

i miss dan


EDIT: might as well contribute. went to art school, dropped out, started working in construction doing concrete finishing. spent an entire year doing nothing but working. decided to draw again, wasn't into it at all. tried graphic design and i both didn't have the inspiration or time. started doing really amateur photography back in 2009 and i already had a pretty decent camera but i upgraded to a 60D in 2011 and since then photography has been my main medium. i post occasionally in traditional media but this whole place is dead. lately i've really gotten into mobile photography which is a pretty cool thing. i have a bunch of places where you can find me but i'm pretty spread out

VSCO GRID for mobile stuff
FLICKR for other things
OURSUNKENCOLONY for old things because i don't update anything ever at all (but i really should)

Go to school for Digital Media, switching from Graphic Design. It's basically the same thing but is like.. part GD part independent study. Want to do viral marketing. Will post up some of the stuff I've done for classes I guess shortly. I haven't done anything in relation to tags or what not in a while.

Sooo I don't know if im as veteran and remembered as some of you but I did use to come here and post alot, I think I either had a shop or was part of one but I cant remember. I have also gone by patius and final keyboard, I used GIMP and actually made pretty decent tags. I think I still have some tutorials in the resource section lol I tried bringing graphic clans to the forum to get people into tagging and such.

I remember Pablo and talking to him and I feel like I knew Sean and Eli too but cant remember for sure lol I always enjoyed kaz, spiff, and hall's work. Oh plus Geo since he used GIMP. So many name changes since then, idk who is who lol

I graduated high school in 2010, have been working at different jobs, got a girl pregnant and had a child so im home alot with my daughter when im not at work. I stock overnight at HEB which is a grocery store in Tx and I enjoy it alot, working overnight takes some getting used to but its worth it for a good check!

As far as tags or GIMP ing and PS, I havent touched them in a long time and would have to reteach myself probably

I'm not a veteran by any means but I try to make at least one tag a week, since I need the practice. Though lately I've been feeling kinda poopy and lazy soooo.

I also started uni, I'm doing an art degree and it sucks.

That's pretty much how I feel when I try to make something that isn't a tag. D: Tags are about the only thing I haven't given up on.

Is it a coincidence that everyones coming back. I had to comeback. I won't lie I would think about this place once in while and I would get those feels.

EDIT I stopped doing digital media in 2011. Belive it or not I made new tag in like August. I got up one day said, you know what I wanna make a tag from this tut. I'll post it when I fix my computer. But just started getting back in the art game. I'm taking painting classes on the side at my university. I still have all my PSD's. Actually this last thing I made before August. But yeah man college eats up your time
