The Textures Feature Vol. VHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. V6 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's time for my textures feature again. I will be presenting artists and artworks to you which stood out to me while wandering around in the resources department these past weeks and months. Before I do, I'd like to use the opportunity to ask you if you'd be interested in other journal topics than just features. There's some things here on deviantart that bug me and since everyone has their own voice, it might me a waste not to use mine in order to talk about certain topics. I will certainly make a poll about this as well, but if you happen to read this, I'd be glad to hear if you're interested in reading about critical things like art theft, especially resources-related. Let me know in the comments!
Moving on to the textures feature:
This genious texture pack is made by crumbeling bath bombs! The textures are high quality black and white textures, offering the opportunity to coloring them in the

Photomanips for BeginnersWhat is a photomanipulation?Photomanips for Beginners4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new.
This is what the gallery description states. But what does it mean?
It means that a photomanipulation is based on photographs.
Not sketches scanned in (like line art for example) or screenshots from a video game. However, if you scan a photograph or for example dried flowers, it would be considered a photograph; while a photograph taken of line art still remains a sketch and is not consiered a photograph. Video game screenshots are copyrighted images btw and as such cannot be used at all.
It means that you need to use more than one photograph.
Retouching work as well as work that uses brushes or texture overlays only to "spice up" a photo that was taken by yourself(!) should be submitted to Photography > Darkroom, while work that uses stock images (i.e. images that you did not take yourself) should be

The Dining Philosophers - a ProblemEpicurus muttered, "None of this affects me at all," excused himself, and slipped out the back door practically unnoticed. That left the table unbalanced. On one side were the ancient worlders: Plato and Aristotle, heads together in deep discussion, and Socrates, who appeared to be gently questioning Miletus while Sextus Empiricus studiously withheld judgement on the proceedings.The opposite end of the table was mostly held by the enlightenment gang, with Lao-Tze as the sole outlier, holding down the farthest end of the table as he watched the proceedings, imperturbably. Voltaire had given up on his hopes of getting Lao-Tze to appreciate his witticisms, and shifted his focus to Rousseau, who was trying to hide behind the equally imperturbable bulk of David Hume. Neitzsche was berating Hume, loudly, and making wickedly poetic assertions that made Spinoza occasionally put his head down and "facepalm" though he quickly converted the gesture to what appeared to be a thoughtful forehead-rubThe Dining Philosophers - a Problem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
SOPA, Hypocrisy, Scandal, DMCA, and CensorshipMissing The PointSOPA, Hypocrisy, Scandal, DMCA, and Censorship3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been disappointed to see the various responses to SOPA, especially the "DEVIATION CENSORED" images. They so completely miss the point that I can only assume the people posting them have absolutely no comprehension of what SOPA means, why it's a problem, and what they're actually protesting against.
First off, SOPA is not about censorship. Unfortunately, many of the opponents of SOPA decided to cast it as being about censorship in order to mobilize public opinion. Why did they do that? Unfortunately, they did that for two reasons: 1) they knew that without mobilizing mass support, the bill would go through and 2) they knew that the masses they wanted to get support from simply don't care/understand the real problem enough to do anything - because the truth is much to complicated for the typical internet user. I have some sympathy for that view, because I've discovered over and over again that copyright is, in fact, too complicated for the typi
Home!!I got home from my crazy trip to Chernobyl yesterday and have mostly caught up on my sleep.Home!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw lots of stuff, snapped thousands of photos, and wrote a detailed trip journal each night (and sometimes paused during the day to sit down and write a bit...) about the whole experience. It'll help me cement everything in my memory to write it all down quickly before it fades.
Looking at lots and lots of wreckage made my mind start to go numb; there are levels and levels of detail and I kept trying to make sense of everything. It simply doesn't work. After a day or two, I found myself just walking around shaking my head mumbling, "no. no."
The people who had to deal with the accident did the best they could with an incomprehensible and horrible situation. I kept feeling alternately elated and horrified that humans had been such brave ass-kickers that they got their kids out, left their homes in an orderly manner - and then some of them went back into a radioactive nightmare and cleaned it u

Welcome to the July 15th edition of Photomanipulation News. I hope your July is going well for you and that those of you who are in hot areas are staying cool!
I've got lots of stuff to tell you. Let's get started!
Advanced Photomanipulation month!
September is our month for advanced photomanipulation! While the activities and workshops I have in mind are geared toward developing or continuing to develop advanced skills, everyone is welcome to participate. We will all be reaching outside our comfort zone. I will be contacting some folks from each of the galleries (surreal, dark, macabre, fantasy, conceptual, etc.) who have more advanced skills and inviting them to provide feedback to help us plan the event. If you are interested, regardless of your skill level, let me know and I'll be sure to include you in the conversations. It's going to be awesome!

You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.
Welcome to our 2012 Photomanipulation Contest, "When Darkness Falls."
This contest is being held by Aeirmid and The-Sacred-Space.
We are grateful to Community Relations for backing this contest.
Any photomanipulator can join, and all are welcome.
Your task is to complete the sentence:
When darkness falls, _____

[In other words: Show us what happens when Darkness falls!]
You can interpret the sentence to mean anything you want.

Why they are my favourite? Well they are for several reasons!
Each of those who will be listed here, will have:

Rules that allow commercial usage (at least on dA and on request for outside dA)
Rules that allow outside dA usage without being forced to slap the stockers name ON the artwork itself.
or Rules that are fully unrestricted
This includes stock-providers that take a few points for their stock, because I rather pay a few points if the TOU's & quality are grea
