As you can see I have gone back to the basics of the journal skin. It is to show my great disappointing feelings here at DA recently.
My first heartache is this I have seen so very many artists on here flourish and come into their own, adapt their own styles, learn amazing techniques, keep on coming up with new and creative pieces, And so many of them go unnoticed, without acolytes and with a mild fan base.
Mean time I have seen people taken basic stock add a layer of texture or two over it and filter the hell out of it and it goes with the highest praise, where is the ethics in this? Claiming a piece is painted when it is clearly not. it is just extreme

After a long time I picked a few manipulations, which, in my opinion, deserves attention. Photomanipulations are not just about technique, but mainly about choosing good source photos and a comprehensive work of its mixing. Often I see a lot of great works that disappears in a flood of new one here on DA. Show them is to encourage the author to further improve, I think.

INTERVIEW ERIK SCHUMACHERToday's interview is with Erik Schumacher :iconerikshoemaker:, a great artist born in Germany and owner of a unique style, read our chat here. Enjoy it!INTERVIEW ERIK SCHUMACHER6 months ago in Personal More Like This
1 - Erik great pleasure to have you in this interview. Let's start from beginning, how did your passion for digital art? How was your learning process, we want to know if you have incentives and at what point did you think: "this is my style"?
-For me it's hard to define what's my personal 'style', but others have pointed out several times that certain images in my gallery are typical examples of what I usually do. To be honest I don't really have any incentive to create art as it's just a hobby of mine I'm very passionate about. It's a great way to relax and be creative as opposed to my daily work routine which is basically just Math Math Math and Physics. Since I'm not going for a design career my learning process is also weary and stagnant lol, but I really want to get myself to learn new software (

I wanted to provide my own interpretation of the sxc (Stock Exchange) Image Licence Agreement and what is required by sxc for us to use the stock images offered there.
While I am definitely not a lawyer, I have used, and helped to write, such agreements for the software company where I worked for over 10 years. I have communicated the rule and intent of such agreements to resellers, other staff, and end-user customers. I have rewritten such agreements so they are expressed in simple understandable English and I will attempt to analyse and explain the Image Licence Agreement as best I can by quoting it and adding my own comments in bold italics
This is what the Image Licence Agreement says -

Interview with XilaPhoenixArt1.First, please tell us something about you!Interview with XilaPhoenixArt3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm Vicky, a Belgian 38 years old married woman with two dogs that are like children to us. Since over 12 years I can't go work anymore because of my Fibromyalgia, so I have plenty of time to focuss on art. I also love reading fantasy books and watch fantasy movies... did I already mention that I love fantasy? Because my daily reality is often very hard, I search for distraction in different fantasy worlds. I very much enjoy spend time with my hubby: sitting outside, have a drink and so on.
2. When do you discover your passion for art? And what is your motivation making art?
I think I was born with art in my heart. Since very young age I didn't want to do anything else than drawing and painting. I also followed art school wich helped me a lot. As a young adult I made oil painting as a hobby. So the passion for art is a red line through my whole life. Later I found out about Paint Shop Pro and I became a tagger, focussed on a
Possible Picture TheftCheck out this Photostream (and her others) here:Possible Picture Theft3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have found quite a few of my photomanips there as her "own". I recognized several art pieces from DA - and I have notified whomever I could. But you'd better go there and check out whether your artwork was stolen or not.
EDIT: What s/he does is, takes our pics, either cuts out the main motif and puts it in an other environment, or 'recreates' the picture with small changes (and in a ridiculously bad way too...)

Sorry for being a pain in the ass but I just got 4 notes from people saying that my new deviation isn't showing up on their watchlist... and I'm sure a lot more people aren't getting this on their watchlist! What else is new? We all know about the daily dA bugs and all the malfunctions!
I just released the first artwork from my brand new series "Alice in Shadowland". The first one is a twisted re-interpretation of the White Rabbit. You shouldn't follow the white rabbit... it will lead you to your death.... I'm already working on 4 other artworks from this series and I hope to release them as soon as possible.
Also, I'm creating a News Article, gathering all my top favorite digital art from 2012 so yes..... you will all be in this news article. Stay tuned for it
On another note...
This is not a rant.... this is more like venting out my feelings towards this artistic comm

Try more tutorials. No matter how far you come in photomanipulation, you can always learn more!
Be kinder to myself.
Try to have fewer projects going on at one time.

I have been away for awail. First I have felt very bad since before New Year because I have a bronchial virus.
My doctor says it may take several weeks before it disappears. But I feel much better now. I get a little tired sometimes and get a little headache. But it's better.
Then I've also had my computer at service. And it felt awful to be without a computer. No photoshop and no Deviantart visit. It was very boring.
But now I'm back, and I have lots to catch up on here. I've sat almost all day and commented and responded to comments, so now I only have about 4000 artwork to go through and 1100 comments haha
It will take some time though I also have commissions to take care of. AND I also want to find time to create my own artwork.
But I will try my very best!

star of wonder...Today, my hubby and I took some time to watch a bunch of Christmas themed movies on the Hallmark channel. Yes, we're the 'sappy' type that like movies with heartfelt meaning and we got our fill. Of course this started me wondering about how we each express our own religious celebrations. I write here only about what I know first hand and mean no offense to anyone who believes differently than I do.star of wonder...5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am content in my beliefs and in my heart today, more than I have ever been. Maybe, its getting older or maybe have I gotten wiser....seeing things with a perception I did not have before? I really don't know, but it is more clear today than it has EVER been in my life what role God plays in our lives and so many times we are just too busy to see it. Not with just our eyes, but with our hearts. Within the last 4 yrs., we have experienced some pretty hard times. But EVERY time our needs have been met.

As you all know, for the past months (well, almost a year now) I've been working on my first Art Book. Over the last couple of years I got several requests and questions about my Art Book and, this year I decided to take the leap for it.
I made market studies, I made some Polls over here, and now, the book is finally just about to come out.
Creating this book is being the most wonderful experience and it represents everything I am as an artist.
There will be both Hard Cover and Paper Back Cover versions but, for all the interested people: I advise the hard cover version for sure!
I want to thank you all for the constant support over the years and without you, none of this would be possible. You're a big part of the reason my dream came true.
Stay tuned because now it's just a matter of days until the book is finally out (exclusive contents and offers will be revealed on that time). For now, revealing both front and back covers:

Thanks to the judges and thanks to :iconthefantasim: to be such a generous partner! It was so much fun to create a manip in the midst of my crazy, time-lacking period! Although I don't seem to have time to take part in challenges nowadays I found this collaboration (in which the ever-patient organizers paired up an experienced photomanipulator with a less experienced one) very inspiring. Such a great way to give back to the community - one of things I wish I had thought about first
