RFF #4 + Thomas Kinkade Inspired Manip?My mom's birthday is this weekend. I want to make her a Thomas Kinkade inspired manip but I just don't even know where to begin...RFF #4 + Thomas Kinkade Inspired Manip?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
his paintings are beautiful landscapes:
I want to do something similar, but I also want to incorporate an angel because she loves angels.
I just can't seem to find the right stock for everything, especially a decent house stock :/
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
and with out further ado, here are my recent favorites:
Single Stock Challenge - Ends in a few days hurry!Hello from the admins of TheArtOfManipulation! It's time for a new Contest and this one is going to be BIG!Single Stock Challenge - Ends in a few days hurry!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
How it Will Work
For this contest, we are going to make things TOUGH. We will provide you with a list of stockers that you can choose from, however you only get to choose ONE stock artist and you must use all stock from that artist. And to make things even harder, you cannot use any human models, premade backgrounds, PNG cut-outs, or brushes (except the preset ones located in your software already). Also you MUST use a minimum of 3 stock images, there is no maximum
Must be a member of TheArtOfManipulation in order to submit to the contest folder, make sure you read the rules and answer the 3 questions to join the group!
Your entry MUST be a PHOTOMANIPULATION. That means it involves 2 or more (in this case 3 or more

Photoshop is one of the worlds most popular programs for editing images, but at $699.00 USD, it can put a huge dent in our wallets. So today I'm going to list off a few Photoshop alternatives, some that are free and some that are cheaper then what Adobe may offer. Now, these programs may not offer the exact same bells and whistles that Photoshop offers, but they still work extremely well. Some people actually prefer a free editing program to Photoshop. It's all about personal preference!
Platform: Linux, Windows, Mac
An open-source alternative to Photoshop that's avaliable for Linux, Windows, and Mac. GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. GIMP offers a wide a large variety in tools, very similar to Photoshop, and is a great alternative if you're looking for a no-cost image edito
Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.

Photo Manipulation Contest! - 4 hours left!!Photo Manipulation Contest! - 4 hours left!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So It's been a long while since I've held my own personal photo manipulation contest and since I had taken new model stock images recently I've decided to start a contest using my new stock as a requirement.
The only stock required is one model stock from my new model stock packs:
I apologize the quality isn't the greatest - I'm still learning to use my camera properly so some images might be blurryish
The rest is completely up to you! It can be fantasy, dark, horror, surreal, emotional, etc. Anything you want it to be.
When your finished, send me a note with your entry and I will add it to my favorites folder for the contest!
Deadline is October 3rd (my birthday!)
If there is under 10 entries, there will only be one winner. If there is more then 10 (less then 20) there will be two winners. If there

As for me, I move back into the dorms for school at the end of the month so I'm trying to get things ready - apparently this year I have a roommate, which I'm not too thrilled about being its my last year and I'll be spending it mostly in my room getting my projects done, hopefully she's not a "prissy popular I like to party and get drunk cheerleader" type person cuz I like to punch them in the face >.>
Oh for those that are interested in learning manips, or getting better at them check out Teach-Me-Manips!

Breakthrough Manips 3 + 4!Breakthrough Manips 3 + 4!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to my lack of posting last month's series, I'm doing a double dosage of fantastic manips this month! Boo Yah!
Breakthrough Manips shows off works by talented artists whose work receives less than 100 favorites. It's designed to help breakthrough the tough crowd called "popularity." We all want to be popular right? But is that really what's important? no. Sure it's nice to attract attention, to get your work out there and be known to create fabulous artworks. But being popular tends to block the way for other wonderful artists to be seen, and there are TONS of incredible artists whose work goes unnoticed. Just take a look at the this series of outstanding manips with less then 100 favorites. Go give them some lovin'!

"The project is a dA-wide series of educational events that are housed in the group projecteducate.
PE is a tour of deviantART where each CV or team of CVs/members goes through one gallery or topic for a week. The focus is on education, and they do things like interviews and features and information about that gallery (e.g., "What is photomanipulation?"). They also have activities and contests and things like that to garner interest, participation, and excitement about the topic."
Please check out these journals for more information and the PE schedule!
