• 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.

i agree with cme about the cropping. a little contrast would look neat i think.

That's the stock, so I can't really do anything about that unless I wanted to spend the same amount of time I did making the tag, editing his face. Ain't worth it to me. ;-;

Thanks y'all.

I feel like just making it smaller might make it look better, too. Not cropping it, just reducing size.

Bah idk you've done better.

Neg space to the right makes my eye twitch a bit. But that's probably cause I was never a fan of that in the first place.

I know I've done better. :[ But I'm still really rusty and my head goes off in the direction of actual graphic design versus tags a lot these days, so...

I might try something different with the image, because I really liked it. Thanks for all the input though, guys. I'll implement it into another tag sometime soon.

You know, I'd like this so much more if the c4d type thing on the left was gone and the smudge streak right before the black on the right was all blurred instead of just some of it.

Yes, it is. Gotta love little Kovacs.

I don't know, Pablo. The entire thing just feels off to me by this point, and i disliked it doing both those things, because when I was working on it I tried both that. :/

don't be so hard on yourself. you recently just got back into things and for however long you weren't tagging for, this is pretty good.
