Photomanipulators, how have you evolved? - FeatureI'm interested in creating a feature that shows how much your work has changed over time. I put together a "Then and Now" feature a while back, but I'd like to do one that focuses on photomanipulation.So if you're interested, note me two works from your gallery; one of your oldest and one of your newest. The more similar the better. You may be surprised at the difference between the two. I sure know I am. There are almost 7 years between these two.Also, if you would like, feel free to give some background information (how long you've been manipulating, whether you're self-taught/took classes, your best source of inspiration, whether it's your livelihood or just a hobby, etc.)
CLOSED - Photomanipulation Contest - MythologyUPDATE: 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
CLOSED - Flash Manip Challenge 03 - TwistedDeadline passedNo entriesYou'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. 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. Guidelines for Challenge 3Theme: Twisted: take a common idea, story, myth, etc. and give it a major twistTime limit: 3 days (due by 11:59pm EST March 4th)You will be judged on creativity/originality & how
