CLOSED-Photomanipulation Contest - Zodiac
Contest is closed - judging in progress
- - - - - - -
Only 11 days left!!
- - - - - - -
Hi, everyone! :wave:
So, it's time for another photomanip contest! :eager:
The theme of this one is the zodiac. It is one often used; however, rather than just focusing on the star zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, etc.), I thought it would be interesting to incorporate other types of zodiacs. I have found pages that give information on some of the more well-known ones (however, you are welcome to dig as deep as you'd like and go further than the ones shown below):
Astrological zodiac: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/zodiac-signs-and-meanings.html
Chinese: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/Chinese-zodiac-signs.html
Celtic Tree: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/celtic-tree-astrology.html
Egyptian zodiac: http://www.astrologyoftheancients.com/egyptian-astrology/
You are welcome to incorporate more than one zodiac into your entry (in fact, you're encouraged to!).
For example, I'm an Aquarius, born in the Y

January Challenge and December Winner!
January Theme: New Beginning
How are you guys in the New Year? I hope you've had a great time this New Year's Eve and are looking forward to new challenges and surprises! Everything is beginning once more; did you make any resolutions? And at last, this brings me to this month's theme - New Beginning!
What can you portray? Let's think about it - is a beginning of a new season? Is a brave hero beginning an adventure? Is a wanderer setting off on the road to the unknown? Is a child being born? Or maybe someone is being raised from the dead? Or dying? Is someone in the process of creating a new, wonderful world?
As you can see, there is really a myriad of ways to interpret January's theme - be creative! Surprise us with your vision, open a new and wondrous chapter and have fun while creating the potential winner of this months challenge. :)
Don't forget to credit all stock used and use only legitimate stock!
Only ONE entry per person per month. :)

Eleven.. Cover Contest! CLOSED!

So, for as long as I can remember I've had access to the most incredible range of books, from novels, tall tales and everything in between; all of those I've read (and I'm sure you all agree) it's most frequently their covers you immediately think of when you hear their titles.  It goes without saying that a picture tells a thousands words, and cover art, for that specific reason has to grab the reader by the eyeballs and hold their attention right through to the very last page in a yummy, captivating smorgasbord of plot teasers, incredible characters and dreamy (or dystopian) landscapes. Essentially, book cover p0rn :D
Visiting bookshops used to be as much about the cover art as it was about the text on the pages, which is why these days seeing the dozens of dreary, completely plain covers which do absolutely NOTHING to sell the book leaves me a little cold.  Further I just can't understand why publishers are going in this direction. :shrug:

When you ask about book covers don't
I have a lot of inquires about using stock for book covers as well as other commercial works. Inquiries come from a number of different sources including: publishing companies, designers, and sometimes from the authors themselves. Here is some of the things I have noticed about a lot of these messages that are more damaging then helpful, and un professional. Please understand that this isn't about anyone in general nor do I feel anyone is being rude or disrespectful purposefully. I thought it would be helpful for the people inquiring and for other stock artists on DA. 


One of the biggest things I see is asking if the price listed is correct, and then giving a much lower number that you have paid for other stock. 
  -If I or any other stock provider has set a price it's because that is the price they feel comfortable offering. It's     usually lower then they should offer, and telling them inadvertently it's too high is deva

CLOSED - Photomanipulation Contest - Mythology
UPDATE: Hi, everyone. Sorry for the silence. Things have been hectic this past week. I was hoping to have the winners announced by now, but I haven't had a lot of time online, and I won't have more until the middle of next week. The announcement will not be any later than next Wednesday, that I can promise.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Based on the results of a previous poll, the popular choice for the contest theme is Mythology.
"Mythology can refer either to the collected myths of a group of people—their body of stories which they tell to explain nature, history, and customs—or to the study of such myths. As a collection of such stories, mythology is an important feature of every culture."
For this contest, you are invited to create an entry based around your favorite god, goddess, mythological creature, etc. However, you are encouraged to break out of the box a bit and work around a myth you are not familiar with, or one that i

REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's Belles
What is this?
This is a brief contest, meaning that you will have only one month to complete it. It is a personal contest, meaning I'm doing this on my own, and it's not the huge project/contest to which I alluded in an earlier post. That's still coming.
This contest will run from March 7th to April 6th, 2015. It is something I've wanted to do for a while to meet new people and to get people involved in the community.
Who can enter?
I will only accept photomanipulations, digital mixed media work, and digital paintings/drawings. These are the only media I feel comfortable judging. I apologize to those of you who do not use these media.
Theme
The theme of this contest is Hell's Belles. The theme is indeed a pun on "hells bells," so you can rock out to AC/DC's iconic song as you contemplate your entry. (See above.)
By "Hell's Belles," I am referring to women who roc

Contest: Depth and Perspective! - Closed
Last update: 4/24/22 - DATE EXTENDED to the 1st of May do to the request of multiple people.  
Theme 
In this contest your goal is to create a photo manipulation, or mixed media piece that focuses on creating an interesting depth of field and perspective!
That is your main goal! Pieces will be judged on overall concept and technique, but the use of depth and perspective will be that main focus! Meaning adding a few blurred out branches in the foreground might not cut it!
depth of field

noun

the distance between the nearest and the furthest objects that give an image judged to be in focus in a camera.
perspective
noun
the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.

Some things we should talk about
This journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)
Every community has them.  Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top.  Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end. :stare:
OMG WHY DID YOU SEND YOUR REPLY TO PirateLotus-Stock and CelticStrm-Stock AS WELL??

How to stay Motivated
How to stay Motivated. 
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
Etc.
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Tip 1
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours

The Wow Effect: What Makes Great, Great?
For the latter half of March through the beginning of April, the theme at we-HEART-photomanip will be, The Wow Effect. Today, I am going to present some information about what makes a great photomanipulation great.
 
A great photomanipulation has great composition.
Composition is the way your eye travels over the photomanipulation and where your eye rests. What is the focal point of the image? Is that an appropriate focal point? (For example, are your eyes drawn to the model's eyes/face, or her arm? :XD:) Composition is how we capture and keep the attention of our viewers. Popular composition styles include the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio, although there are certainly others.

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

Hi there,
I'm Jasmin - I'm an engineer who loves pretty things,
above all butterflies and photomanips*.
I used to be the gallery mod for the photomanipulation category in 2006/07 and from Nov 2010 to April 2012.

* and chocolate of course, I almost forgot chocolate!
Please Note:
  • I often don't have much time during the week, so answers to comments and notes will be slow - I do read every single comment and I do try to answer all in a timely fashion, but sometimes it can take a week or two.
  • My artwork is not available for free and I don't do commissions.
    • If you want images you can drag through photoshop, feel free to take those available at kuschelirmel-stock.
    • If you like my work and want to share it, use the share buttons, don't repost!
    • I am currently unavailable for licensing - you'll have to find someone else's art to use! I have a full time job and this is my hobby and it should stay my hobby, anything else is just too stressful.
  • I can no longer give DDs! Please send your photomanip suggestions to the current volunteer!
