• 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.

What was the first thing you ever drew and were proud of?

I quite recently just came across a picture of a drawing I did now four years ago, and it was the first time I drew something entirely freehand and felt actually proud of myself. Especially since I hadn't drawn anything in maybe ten years.



Behold the majesty.

So what about you guys?

Hmm... I had an art phase in high school where I drew all of the time and spent 5 hours a night doing my art homework (seriously happened). I remember spending up to 25-35 hours on some of those projects, and I was really into Kingdom Hearts at the time. Needless to say, almost every single piece of art I drew at the time was Kingdom Hearts related, and the first thing that I was super proud of drawing might have been this red moon revolving around the earth with a crown in the middle that I must have shaded for 6 hours to get right =P

Okay then. I never thought I would do this, and I hope there will be NO RAGRETS (not even a single letter) even though it IS quite embarrassing.
I'm gonna link the first and only "fanart" I e v e r made in my life. I guess it's just not meant to be for everyone. It's from 2009, so I was 14. Behold...

I think I had a reference-picture, but can't find it anymore.

Yeah, I never finished the ear because I kinda lost faith I could do it. xD Now it's...this. Lol.
Although I have to say those were good times. I met up with a friend regularly to watch all the episodes of the series. And the abridged series which is absolutely great up to this day. *nostalgia*

I've honestly never been fully satisfied with anything I've ever drawn. I'm super critical about my works and my standards for what is good enough keep going higher much faster than my skills so it'll probably never even happen.

No wait that's actually wrong. I used to draw horrible cat comics all the time in my previous school and even tape them to the walls. Some students and teachers tried taking them off but I just kept putting them back and making new ones. Only one teacher and some of my friends knows I was the one to do it lol. I love drawing them tbh and they're high class art as you're about to see if you click the spoiler. I'm proud.

Raise your expectations, they're about to be blown away.

This is, this is.... incredible. I laughed a few solid minutes when I opened the spoiler. :D And you taiped these on walls too? Awesome.


Mine was probably some KH-related art I did during high school. I don't have it anymore, but I remember drawing a big Heartless. To know how to draw muscles I looked trough some of the later volumes of Ruroni Kenshin. There was this big puppet enemy which studied and then learned how to draw at least medicore muscles.
Other piece that I was proud was some FMA/KH thing. I drew..... *covers head out of embarrassment* my nobody sitting on a throne. I copied the throne and the sitting position(and overall body layout) from an artwork in one of the FMA artbooks.

All of my art is where it belongs: wrapped up and shoved against a wall. I'm not bad at art...but I don't like looking at my stuff. So I'm never proud of anything. I don't even have many photos up online for that fact. I thought this was a cute thumbnail to share, though:

Spoiler: the actual charcoal skull I drew did not look as cute. :c

Hmm, second grade was when I first started drawing. ( Always free hand.) Never made something I could be proud of though... I guess ish cause I'd keep losing art contests. Oh wait a moment, there was this one time in high school where this guy really liked my doodles for some reason. He said he'd buy them if he had money, and since I had no value in them, I gave them to him for free... even made a third to tie the doodles together. ^_^ Wonder what happened to him, he was always unusual in art class and experimented with his art in bizarre ways... which is saying something being surrounded by creative people. ( Except me, I'm not very creative. XD) I guess chu could say I felt proud that someone found value enough in my stuff to buy it...
