REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's BellesWhat is this?REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's Belles by Aeirmid
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.
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! - OpenLast update: 4/24/22 - DATE EXTENDED to the 1st of May do to the request of multiple people.Contest: Depth and Perspective! - Open by AbbeyMarie
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
the distance between the nearest and the furthest objects that give an image judged to be in focus in a camera.
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.

Contest!! - The Beast WithinHello everybody !! I've been mulling over making a contest or a while now. The theme of the contest in particular was an extremely hard choice. But today I present you the result of my months long brainstormingContest!! - The Beast Within by zummerfish
Theme: The Beast Within
Have you ever wondered about hidden parts of your inner self? Have you ever wondered what kind of primitive traits each of us harbours or suppresses? What kind of animal instinct makes us act this or that way? What animal would we embody? These pieces of the unconscious are part of everyone, from saints to jerks. Moreover, the animal metaphor has found its way through ages up to present day. Its persistence only proves its viability.
What I propose here is to create an artwork featuring an anthropomorphous character - a character that would reflect your (or of a person you are familiar with) inner beast essence. What kind of setting? It's up to you. You can show a moment of tr
Some things we should talk aboutThis 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.)Some things we should talk about by Elandria
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.
OMG WHY DID YOU SEND YOUR REPLY TO PirateLotus-Stock and CelticStrm-Stock AS WELL??
Hello, welcome to TEAM Stock and Resources!
If you are interested in a video critique, please note me with three deviations of yours to choose from (so I can choose the one I have the most to say about).
I cannot guarantee you will actually receive a critique and there will be no set schedule because my daily life tends to wreck any plans of doing stuff like this on a regular basis. Also please note that I will not be putting you on an ordered list (but on an unordered one) meaning I will critique what feels like a good idea instead of going by who was first. I hope you will understand that.

is an article that strives to explain what copyright means, who it protects and that simply putting work into something will not make using something without permission okay.
Know your Basics - article series:
A series of articles that try to explain some basics in art that you may or may not have heard of before but didn't know what to do with them. All of them are written especially for photo- manipulators, but the principles should hold true in any genre.
