The Textures Feature Vol. IIHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. II2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, thank you for over 500 watchers! Can't really imagine that there's so many people who like what I do - but I am more than thankful for that. Also, thanks to the people who made donations in order to support my work here. When I opened that donation pool, I didn't think that there would be donations any time soon. But you surprised me and I don't really know how you thank you for that. Well, except saying thank you! It's a huge motivation for me to carry on with what I do. Now I hope this journal will be a small motivation for the artists featured here, too. Hope you will continue making amazing art!

Well, I've made it home and brought company with me. I got a new bed, and now maybe I can sleep. Of course, if that happens, when will I write or do artwork? LOL...
There are several fun photomanipulation challenges and contests underway right now. If you are curious about them, please head over to :iconphotomanip-contests:!
I have been pretty productive this past week. I've added three new pieces to my portfolio. I'm also working on a tutorial for "Frequency Separation" and was hoping to have it done soon. Lolita-Artz, I promise to get it finished this week! Trust me... it's worth waiting for. I've watched quite a few youtube tutorials on this, and then developed my own style for the retouch part. Several have asked how I've been doing my skin. Tris-Marie has been gracious enough to let me use one of her stock photo's for the tutorial, so make sure you send some love her way and check out her awesome array of stock photos for your own crea

Happy Birthday, Richard!Happy Birthday, Richard!3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello all my dear friends!
:icontrippy4u: and I have something in common. We have been on DA for 6 years. I guess we have been friends since the first year. We hide our birthdays, and our pageviews are so close. We also have different things. He takes picture. I do digital art. I have changed 3-4 icons. He still use the green-headed one, while got DDs 4 times more than me. Well, Well done, my friend!
Richard is a great observer. His photos reflect ordinary life, nature, social, behavior of human and many more in meaningful and impressive way. The outstanding elements in his works contain great timing, interesting composition and viewpoint, as well as good sense of humor.
Here are some of my favorite Richard's works.

Manip Academy 5: Blending Modes and ManipsNote: This Manip Academy tutorial is from LadyEvilArts. It is not my work. Please direct any questions, comments, love, or gratitude her way. Thank you!Manip Academy 5: Blending Modes and Manips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Blending modes and photomanipulations
Few words about most used blending modes (bm), how they affect the image (positive and negative moments).
First of all I want to remind about the option of creating layer filled with neutral colour for chosen blending mode. Holding Alt press icon "create a new layer", Photoshop will show you window like this:
Just select desired bm and check "fill with ... neutral color". Sometimes it's very helpful.
Second, when you use blending modes for toning for example, use option "new adjustment layer - solid colour" instead of filling new layer with bucket. Solid color doesn't increase size of your psd file as much as pixel layer does.
And third - brush, clone stamp, history brush, bucket/gradient, all these tools have option to select bm i

Open your eyes the sky is full of butterflies
The blossoms on the trees stir up the honey bees
Spring makes my fever right spring fever
Spring fever, Spring is here at last
Spring fever, my heart's beating fast

Well if you feel the wanderlust, just grab a car or hop a bus in every town around there´s excitment to be found
don´t miss the joy of spring the worlds in love around
Spring fever comes to everyone
Spring fever, it's time for fun
Get up, get out spring is everywhere"
Please read the song above and surprise us with your imagination , we love surreal ideas and fantasy and creativity.

King Kong and I contestKing Kong and I contest1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome to my second contest
3 years ago, I held my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest in 2012 with total 39,600 That event still makes me poor but very pleased until now.
In 2015, I am quite lucky in art. I won lots of points from many contests throughout the year.
Now I'm ready to hold a contest again and share 11,900 to other artists.
This event is called...
KING KONG AND I
Yes, the theme of this contest is about King Kong and a woman.
I believe that almost all of you have seen King Kong movies at least once from 1933, 1976 or 2005 version.
So, this event is like 10 year anniversary for the last time we saw King Kong.

Today I would like to focus on Photomanipulation and the stock that belongs to it. This especially to honour our stock-providers and hopefully inspire you to see alternative things in images or even look at things in real life differently from time to time...
I got the idea from Aeirmid, one of our Photomanip-CVs, who wrote an article for projecteducate about photomanipulation.
I will feature the article at the bottom of the journal - so if you liked the feature, feel free to go ahead and learn more about photomanipulation

A vociferously unassimilable people, they are European (and increasingly American) urban nomads in constant migration, refusing to alter their culture in any way necessary for joining the modern wor
