Who/What Inspires You? - Project

Thu Jan 1, 2015, 2:06 AM


I'm going to try getting this rolling again. :eager:

I'd like to know who or what inspires you, and why. The plan is to collect responses (you can be anonymous if you'd like) and post journals containing said responses. I think it'll be a good way to lift spirits and promote positivity within the community.

Your inspiration can relate to art or life in general. It could come from a multitude of sources or people (both online and real life). If the person is on dA, please include their username. If you want your username listed in the journal, please include that as well.

If you're interested in taking part, please follow the link below to leave your response:

www.surveymonkey.com/s/56DD2J8

The more details, the better. :love:

Thank you!


Stay devious. :peace:

Upcoming Photomanip Contest

Sat Dec 13, 2014, 1:13 AM


It's been a while since I've held a photomanip contest, so I think the time is right for another. :) However, I'm coming up dry for themes. I figured I'd turn to the community for unique ideas. Feel free to leave your thoughts or suggestions in a comment. In about a week or two, the suggestions will be voted for in a poll. The tentative run-time for the contest is the beginning of January to the beginning of March. I am also open to prize donations. Any and all help is of course appreciated.

Thank you! :heart:

If I could DD (again)

UPDATE: To give more people an opportunity to join, the new and final deadline to sign up will be December 1st.

If you can spread the word, it will be highly appreciated. :hug:

- - - - - - - - - -

It seemed like many were interested, so here it is! :excited:

:star: What is a "Secret Santa"? :santa:

"...a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift." (Wikipedia definition, so I didn't botch it :lol:) However, in this particular event, you will be personally sending your gift to your assigned person, so you're only anonymous up until then.

:star: The only media being used is photomanipulation. All skill levels are welcome. As always, all stock must be legitimate (nothing from Google images, etc.)

:star: To enter, please send a note (no comments on this journal will be accepted). Make sure to include themes, colors, genres, etc. that you enjoy. Please be as specific as possible. Your description will be what your Secret Santa will follow to create your gift.

:star: There is a week to enter the event. As of November 13th, everyone will start being paired up. Shortly after that, you will receive the description you will be going by.

:star: The deadline to finish your gift is December 21st. Send a note stating that it is complete. You will then be sent your partner's username. Submit the work to your gallery and include their name in the artist comments. It won't hurt to note them the link to the work, just in case they have mentions turned off.


If anything is ever unclear, or you'd like something explained in more detail, please do not hesitate to send a note!

I look forward to hearing from you. :heart:

Flash Manip Challenge 02 - Emotion

Tue Oct 14, 2014, 2:48 PM


And here are the winners:

First place:
Feelin' blue by dresew

Second place:
Party time! by AmazingPopsicle


Thank you! :heart:

You've heard of flash mobs, right? Large groups of people that meet in public places and perform in some way for a short amount of time, then disperse and act as if nothing happened, leaving everyone else surprised and confused? I figured I'd try to incorporate something like that into a short challenge. :D


You will be given a theme. The idea is to quickly piece together a manip based on that theme. Because the time limit to complete it will be short, technical skill will not be heavily judged

There will be more of these challenges, but they will not be on a set schedule. Like a flash mob, they're meant to surprise you and keep you on your toes. :meow:

Guidelines for Challenge 2
Theme: Emotion: choose one emotion to portray (anger, sadness, etc.)
Time limit: 3 days (due by 11:59pm EST October 17th)
You will be judged on creativity/originality & how well you fit the theme
The work must be brand new for this challenge

:star: All stock must be legitimate
Upload your entry to your gallery and send the link/thumb via note


Because this is not a full-blown contest but instead somewhat frequent challenges, the prizes will be fairly small.
There will be two winners.
If anyone wishes to donate anything extra, it will be greatly appreciated. :heart:

First place
200 points
3 month subscription
feature on profile

Second place
100 points
1 month subscription
feature on profile

If you can't take part in this one, don't worry! :hug: There will be many more. Hopefully these will help stir up inspiration and creative ideas. :heart:

Also, feel free to suggest future challenge themes! (they just won't go in the order they are received ;))

Have fun! :la:

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

:iconallison731: nominated by Nameda

I would like to suggest the beautiful Ines for a well-deserved Angels Without Wings Award. While this
lovely lady keeps her own page rather humble, one need merely head to her group, WhisperMeWish,
to see the bounty of her efforts throughout deviantART. Ines selflessly grants wishes, gives monthly
badges along with the confidence that follows, and responds to every comment on her own page with
such sweet sincerity and kindness that you'll find yourself instantly charmed by her positive attitude
and grace. Dear Ines is also quite talented; you'll find a plethora of exotic and useful stock resources
in her gallery. She specializes in tiles and patterns, each of which are unique and breathtaking in their
own way. As evident as Ines' heartfelt efforts to encourage, support, and lift up members of this
community are, it is equally clear how deserving she is of the title "Angel Without Wings".

:iconshehrozeameen: nominated by TheGalleryOfEve

Shehroze is that special friend completely dedicated to making people's dA lives better!!! He's a very
sweet protector of the Literature part of our community, but he also makes sure that no one stays
behind! With his kind soul he does all sorts of wonderful things for others, for example he takes the
time to note his friends about new deviants in need of a warm welcome, and he makes sure everybody
has their quota of encouragement!!! He also mentions us when he gives his meaningful feedback on
comments! I'm so delighted to have met him, and so thankful to dA to have been able to come across
such a wonderful human being like Shehroze!!! dA would DEFINITELY not be this awesome if he wasn't
a part of it!!! I love you, my dear friend!!!

  The Lament of MidnightAnd I'm alone, to walk away
into the shadows I forswore
Had I died in my dreams one day
I would be alone from the core
of my sadness that burns in fires
of my darkened dreams, ashen pyres



therein you fled, leaving me, lost
To the ministry of the frost
  A Pearl's TrioletI watch miles on end, the emptiness
These jaded shades of the sea, ancient
Astray, like shells lost o'er shores ageless
I watch miles on end, the emptiness
These shades of blue in numerous hues
In a lost world, she resides, sentient
I watch miles on end, the emptiness
These jaded shades of the sea, ancient

:iconcanankk: nominated by sesam-is-open

"Canan is that breath of fresh air that you KNOW will have a sweet and positive thing to say, but she
also has that lovely sense of humor that lifts people's spirits when they can use a smile! This talented
Lady has the power of enchanting with her kindness to all those who have the gift of crossing paths with
her! Our community would definitely not be the same without our beloved Canan; she promotes new and
talented artists very often through the BEAUTIFUL and carefully thought journal features! Her kind words
are indeed encouraging, and her creativity shows her special vision about classic and modern art! Her
warmth truly transpires all over her profile and on the profiles she visits, so we're happy to see her get
these wings today!"

:iconvasidgallery: nominated by MayEbony & Nameda

Where do I even begin to tell you about the wonderful, special, loving and incredibly supportive Angel
that is Vasi. Dear Vasi is always so very kind with all of her comments, giving love, praise and constant
support to everyone who she comes in contact with. She answers every comment given to her with love
and compassion, and she comments on nearly every deviation she faves. This is a rare quality - so many
'fave and run', but she takes the time to tell you why she appreciates and admires your work. And of
course she comments on many, many more works, even is she doesn't fave them. Her journals are
wonderful, as she so kindly feature other artists, using well-thought themes; taking the time to group
deviations where they will be shown to best effect. Her own art is also very beautiful, showcasing Nature
with such skill and tenderness. Thank you dear Vasi, for the terrifically fantastic friend that you are to so
many people. You're a true and special Angel Without Wings.

Lady is a friend who is truly an Angel Without Wings! She answers all her comments, she is friendly (and very
cute), and works really hard to assist everyone to improve their own art. Lady regularly produces beautiful art
features to showcase other artists work, and creates really inspiring art of her own. LadyMidnightSolace is a
very kind and helpful person, she is that kind of person, when you meet her you'll say "what a nice girl!" She
has this gentle and generous aura that makes it difficult not to like her, and she goes out of her way to help
others feel good about themselves. She is positive in nature, and cheers people on. Lady also helps with
running several groups that are designed to help other artists get better at making art, stories and characters!
Anyone who devotes so much time and energy into helping others surely deserves a pair of wings!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

Shi is a wonderful artist and friend, not to mention an admirable and supportive member of the community.
Always willing and ready to help, she consistently promotes and encourages other artists with beautiful
features and encouraging critiques. She also keeps a habit of posting well-thought out articles, and offers
constant featuring opportunities for club work. To top it off, Shi is incredibly talented herself; her digital
and traditional art alike breathe life and subtle emotion, you can find deviants all around making use of her
wonderful journal skins, and her photography holds a sweet sort of glow around it that mirrors her personality.
Despite her popularity, she maintains an approachable demeanor, and is a joy to interact with. Thoughtful and
earnest, it cannot be denied that she is genuinely enjoyable to speak with. For those of you who don't know
her yet, Shi will be an enlightening and lovely revelation.

Hiya. :meow:

I've been working on a manip for the past day, and I'd love advice on where to take it if someone has any.

sta.sh/0z1kc24k3jb

The lighting isn't 100% done, but I just want to know if anything should be added or fixed. It was originally going to be half day half night, but I couldn't find a good way to have a clean division between the two. So I stuck with night.

Thank you for any and all assistance. :heart:

     Photomanip DD guidelines - April 2013Hello everyone!
I wanted to refresh my Daily Deviation (DD) guidelines for you in hopes of clearing up some confusion. As always, please feel free to ask me anything you are uncertain about.
I gladly welcome all Daily Deviation (DD) suggestions and am always excited to receive them from you.
DDs are meant to showcase the best deviations that the community has to offer. Anyone, popular or not, can receive a DD if they do exemplary work. That means you! :D For a better understanding of what they are and their purpose, you can visit :faq61:.
Basic Requirements
Your suggestion MUST:
:bulletpink: Be a photomanipulation. This means it needs to be in the category Digital Art > Photomanipulation. A photomanipulation involves 2 or more photographic images that have been combined to make something new. [That being said, I may feature Mixed Media (Digital Art > Mixed Media) if there is at least 1 photographic element.]
:bulletpink: Have stock properly credited. You



Stay devious! :peace: :love:

What exactly is Photomanipulation?


To put it simply, it is the process of using two or more photographic elements and piecing them together to create a whole new work. It is a more extensive process than retouching (which only involves changes to a single photo).




Galleries


Were you ever unsure of where to place your completed piece? Keep reading for a brief description of the Abstract through Humorous galleries.



Abstract

Emphasizes less on the natural world and more on the use of lines, colors, shapes, and textures to provide imagery.

F R A N G I F A N N I E by baiuneedvicodin Feel Me by Bojan1558



Animals & Plants

Animals or plant-life are the main focus.

Sunset at Fox Mountain by Foxfires The Forest Turtle by Rungue



Conceptual

The concept (idea/message) being portrayed is the most important aspect, rather than imagery.

Choices by eclipsy Identity I by MoOnshine90



Dark

Photomanipulations displaying a dark theme or mood; having a mystical, obscure, sombre, grim or sinister expression.

The Waltz with Death by CristaliaART Ataraxia by JesusCareaga



Emotional

Photomanipulations intended to portray, evoke, or represent emotion

The Final Journey by LiliaOsipova Requiem For The Fallen by StarsColdNight
