It's time to announce the results !
Before that, I just have something to say and I hope you will read
I had so much difficulties to choose three winners because I was in hesitation to choose between beauty and concept. There are some wonderful pieces that are not in the winners selection and maybe you can be surprised... but I finally choose the conception and idea behind the picture and what can answer to the question "Why to protect and save the Nature?" �I choose pictures that show this thing in the best way for me and under each winner, I will explain in what they answer so well to this question...
Why to protect the Nature ?

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .

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.

CONTEST IS OPEN"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"CONTEST IS OPEN3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.
The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?
A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?
Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.
Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.

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

REMINDER AND PRIZE UPDATE
Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

About sxc.hu stockGreetings!About sxc.hu stock2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A few of you have been really worried lately about using stock from sxc.hu here because of the change in their ownership. Basically, you were concerned that their license says that you cannot redistribute their stock in whole or in part, by itself or combined with other elements, without the written approval of the original photographer.
As we all know by now, creating a photomanipulation is considered "making a derivative image." And we know we can't make premade backgrounds without permission from the photographers, as doing so is redistributing their work.
I advised a couple of you to check with the Help Desk and sxc.hu to find out the whole truth before making rash decisions about your group that could potentially make everyone panic.
Using my own personal account, I wrote to sxc.hu to find out what the story was. Here's what I said:
I was just wondering whether creating phot
