Project Educate: The Art of PhotomanipulationHello, deviantART! How are you?Project Educate: The Art of Photomanipulation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’m back to tell you a little bit about my very favorite form of art here on dA: photomanipulation, often referenced simply as, manipulation or manips. Hope you enjoy!
What is photomanipulation?
The general consensus in our community seems to be that photomanipulation involves taking elements from at least two photographs (and/or, by some definitions, other sources like 3D work or brushes) and fitting them together to create something that is seamless and distinct from the original sources. Some people argue that a photomanipulation can be made with one photograph as long as the final piece of art is drastically different from the picture from which it originated. If it is not dramatically different—i.e., if the final product is similar to the original photograph but perhaps a bit cleaned up or minor edits are added without including any new elements—we might call it a retouch<
Poorly Written PoemThere once was a man named YuPoorly Written Poem1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Scowling all day is what he'd do
He'd send you a glare
If you played with his hair
And a few death threats he'd shout at you.
Yeah, I know this poem sucks.
But I am tired, so I don't really care.
It was supposed to be 6 lines long, but I'm just going to leave it at 5.
You better accept this, Jenna!
And don't make fun!
I really had no idea for a story and just decided on doing a poem, so this is what I created!
Remember to do your dare on the bus, Jenna!!

Ask Poland!Hello! I, like, totally am being forced to entertain you random people. My boss said that I, like, need more popularity, which, like, totally doesn't make, like, any sense! Anyway, I have to, like, answer your questions. So you can ask questions, but they, like, better be about ponies or whatever...Ask Poland!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Today was the first day of my Junior year! It feels like just yesterday was the first day of my freshman year ;-; My classes are pretty fun. I have so much freedom now that I'm taking my dual credit classes. By the end of the year I'm gonna have 15 college credits. I'm taking English 101 & 102 (6 credits), The College Experience (3 credits), Intro to Psychology (3 credits) and pre-calculus (3 credits).Like, wow.
And we pretty much have free reign of the college campus. It's like we're students there just like regular kids. It's pretty awesome. And we can go in the cafe and lounge and be there like normal students. And we don't have to pay for our books. You don't understand how lucky I am that my highschool is paying for them. The books are all a hundred dollars or more each.
I'm also taking Chemistry, Spanish 4, Music Foundations, and US History. Plus, me and ~hgfdsasdfgh are worki
Small contest.edit:Small contest.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Deadline extended: March 21 is the last day you can submit, and on the 22nd I will announce the winner.
Yeah so I have like 193 points that I want to give away, therefore I've decided to host a small contest.
Since I'm too lazy and too busy to do so, anyone who wants to draw this can enter the contest. All you have to do is colour it (you can find the bigger version of the lineart here), and on March 20, I will announce the winner (meaning the last day you can submit the drawing is March 19).
Just leave me a comment with the link to your drawing on this journal entry.
:/ I don't think there's anything more to add...other than good luck? If you have questions, you can ask me anytime.

DUMP OF CRAP...Hi. This is just a big feeling dump, so don't read if you don't want.DUMP OF CRAP1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hope all of you are great. You all mean so much to me, honestly. dA helped me figure out who I was. It made me more confident and it helped me grow as an artist. Everyone I have ever spoken to here has inspired me incredibly. You all are amazing, and I'll never be able to explain how much that means to me.
I grew up with very little self esteem. I was very solitary and I was terrified of what people thought. I hated myself with a passion and I did anything to feel included.
I think I just wanted to belong.
Anyway, a few years and several friendships based on me practically worshiping anyone who talked to me later, I still didn't like myself. And I didn't trust myself either, because I knew what I was doing. I changed for my friends because I was trying to find out who they wanted me to be.
I was amazed I even had friends.
And I did some really stupid things that I'll always regret because I wanted to be liked.

The Comment Gallery!!!Privet, everyone!The Comment Gallery!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first time doing one of these, but I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do! I first read it in :icongenericusername11: 's journal and thought it would be a wonderful way to spread other people's art! So please comment if you'd like, and link me up with your journal! lol! <3
***I'm also going to add a new feature including why I picked the art pieces!!! <3
• The first 20 people comment this journal, I will put their avatar
and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
• If you comment, you have to do the same in your journal, putting me in the first spot.
The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

***I absolutely LOVE Jen's artwork, but I know I definitely had to choose from her "Clannad" gallery! I really love all of them, but I think the best ones

Today...One of my best friends, Daniela, is getting married today.Today...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Should be any minute now, I think.
The only reason it upsets me is because I'm 1,000 miles away and don't get to experience it with her, but I'm slowly getting over it. I'm just lame like that.
I really am happy for her, though Her husband, Gabriel, is the luckiest man alive, I think. I can't believe it took this long for someone to find out how beautiful of a person Dani is. I'm really happy for the both of them, and I can't wait to visit and have them come up here and visit every now and then so I can see her more...
It's bittersweet. For once I'm a little lost for words... and emotes in my journal. But here's one:
Anniversary and 1D OD hahaYesterday was the anniversary of my baptism. Two years already... holy cow It's certainly been an insane two years, but I've made so many friends and only lost a few to distance~Anniversary and 1D OD haha3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I love going back and reading all the letters I got from friends from that day. I have this annoying thing about me where I only let myself read each one one time through, no matter how much it makes me cry, and then put it back in the pile until next year. I don't touch any of them for 364 days...
I even wrote myself a letter on that day, and when I read it it reminds me of every little detail that happened so it stays fresh in my mind plus, I can't believe how good of a prose piece that was
Meanwhile, I think I ODed (overdosed) on 1D. they had the 7 hour livestream, the new album, performed on the AMA's, won two awards there, performed on Good Morning America, and released North America tour dates for 2014!!!!
So I'm very very very pleased to let you all know tha
Thank You!This journal is a thank you to everyone who contributed something to me, whether just a comment or a piece of artwork.

With that said, I actually don't celebrate birthdays, not even my own. If you care to know the specifics, feel free to note me.
I also want you all to be aware of why I didn't post this journal earlier: A great man died on Saturday. His name was Gordon, and he was 93 years old. He loved God and spent a lot of his time teaching others about the Bible, which he learned a lot about in his late 80's. He was loved by all those at my Kingdom Hall, and when he fell twice at home and ended up in the ICU with pneumonia on top of it, we felt horrible. I was told though, that before he died, he was happy and smiling and laughing when people came to visit him. He also died in

I don't really know how to tell you this, but our affair is over. I think I realized it when your dog ran amok at the mental hospital and I saw you sit on my father. I'm sure you're ashamed enough to understand that Extreme Home Makeover sucks. I'm returning the pictures from LA to you, but I'll keep your suicide note as a memory. You should also know that I told my psychiatrist about a passionate interest for mice.
