Manip Challenges #001If you've been on dA for a while, you may remember the manip challenges I used to run. The original manip challenges were chat based 2 hour challenges, but as I don't have that kind of time any more (the event would be all day long, with 3 to 5 challenges in succession), I decided to adapt them to be two weeks long and not in a chatroom instead.
Wow! What a response! We're through the first week (still one to go!) of the challenge and already there are over 20 entries! Thank you so much for making this site & this group fun
You are given 8 stock images (see below) of which you have to use at least TWO in a way that we don't have to go hunting for them with a looking glass.You can use additional stock, but I ask you not to use premades - this is a challenge for your skills, not for someone else's.Your entry has to be a photomanipulation or a digital mixed media piece with a good deal of photomanipulation in it.Pl
CIC Winners + JudgesBefore we come to the winners, I wanted to thank everyone who participated - it was so cool to see what you all came up with All entries can be found here. The prizes are listed in the Contest Journal - you will be contacted
Time to meet...
At first I wanted to make sure no one whose art was used as inspiration would be judging, but after seeing entries based on my own work, I thought I would level the playing field and invite some of those who were chosen as inspirations:

PREMADES #Photomanipulated SubmissionRules CHANGE!First, let me clarify: I'm not just talking about premade backgrounds, but also about cut-out stock and brushes or anything else where people use images (their own or other people's) to create the resource. And while this is mainly geared toward members of Photomanipulated, I do hope that this journal will also be able to shed some light on things for others.
Personally, I've never been a fan of premade backgrounds, but I'm also not the type of person who thinks everyone else should do as I say just because I have a bad feeling about something. So far, that held true for premades: I steered clear of them because I feared copyright issues, but I didn't have much more than a bad feeling and some research on my part to confirm this. Now, an official dA blog has strengthened my believe that as an artist, using premades will do you more harm than good.
Copyright is something that often falls by the wayside with premades. And if it turns out the image
The Reason......why so many CVs burn out after the shortest time are people like those that have surfaced on Aeirmid's latest journal.
Those that think, CV-ing is a "job" and that the CVs have to do just about everything from setting a DD every day to holding contests. Don't forget to write tutorials or at the very least guiding news articles at least every second day. And don't you dare miss one tiny subgallery or trend while doing all that. Oh and the DD suggestions that you do get, do tell each and every single suggestor why their suggestion wasn't used - and don't you dare say "because I don't think it's well enough blended" because hey, it sure as hell has an awesome idea behind it and maybe the deviant has some sort of disease/disability/misfortune/etc and just needs a DD to get a better life.
Wake up! It's YOUR community. A community by definition consists of different people with one common interest - in the case of web communi
Best of... Weekly Photomanip Features v.2 #2The second edition of the revamped series! View the first issue here
These features are reboot of the original series of newsletters started by me and Lareth way back in 2007, with help from our friends Iardacil and SylwiaS, which ended in 2011 with its #189 edition Best of... weekly photomanip features #189
Being recently returned to a more regular visits status here on dA, I figured what better to showcase the new talent that has invaded the photomanipulations gallery than to reboot this series?! So here it is, back, once again, designed to shine a light on talented artists who deserve your attention.
I will always choose 15 manips from the week that passed. The criteria for selection is simple. They have to present creativity, polished technique and overall good quality. The kind you know when you see them, because they're just eye-catching.

Tips and featureI noticed that some of you work in small sizes when doing a photo manipulation. Of course working in small size is easier to cut corners, but most of the time it looks unfinished. You should try working at a higher resolution with high res stocks. It is more challenging to blend elements and to go over each detail. It also allows you to print your work in great quality afterward. My works are always higher than 4000 px width or height depending of the orientation. I resize down a jpg version before uploading to dA. Another tip, use the pen tool for cutting. Nothing really compares to that tool when it's time to perfectly cut something from a photo.
Now, time for a long overdue feature of some of my friends!

I've had a fantastic, yet hectic, start to the year. Holidays, the start of a new school year, and going backwards and forwards all day everyday. Today it has all finally caught up with me.

So, enough rambling ... here is a random collection of amazing work from the start of 2013 (with a few older ones I discovered). Share the love with you faves and comments.
