Photomanipulation: Interview with :devAbbeyMarie:Photomanipulation: Interview with :devAbbeyMarie:1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome to the latest version of the Rock Stars of Photomanipulation interview series. I really appreciate AbbeyMarie for taking time out of her busy schedule to give us this interview!
Abbey is an American photomanipulator who has been on dA for over 4 years. To me, her gallery is filled with incredible dark, surreal, and fantasy work, crafted with unique vision and strict attention to detail. She is a must-watch for both horror enthusiasts and those who enjoy a surreal, colorful escape from reality as we know it. Be sure to check out her page!
I hope you enjoy this interview.
The first thing I want to ask is, could you please introduce yourself for those who don’t know you?
I'm Abbey! And I am chock full of awkwardness and uncertainty!
How would you describe your art and your style?
I always think dark surrealism, but they have a heavy fantasy/emotional vibe to t
Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed EdgeHello, everybody! I'm renonevada. For those that don't know, one of my jobs here at deviantART HQ is as quality control for prints. I look at every print before it is purchased for the first time to make sure that it will print properly. Some of the things I look out for are copyright infringement, cropping, pixelation, and to make sure it doesn't violate other policies, such as being too pornographic.Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed Edge1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I plan on making a series of journals explaining how to make sure your prints will be approved when they get to me. I know that I'm excited to see the notification letting me know a print has been sold and I want to do what I can to make sure you all see it, as well.
For this journal, I want to speak about Cropping and the Bleed Edge.
This is hands down the number 1 reason why I am forced to reject a print, which in turn will cancel a sale. Because of this, I have tried to make this journal as detailed as possible.
The Bleed Edge is the v

Prints 101: Editing your PrintsHello again, it's renonevada with another article about how to make sure your prints are the best they can be.Prints 101: Editing your Prints1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I'm going back to Prints 101 and tell you how to edit existing prints and add prints to deviations that already exist. This is a frequent question in the Help Desk and in the printscommunity.
Most of these instructions will apply to submitting a new deviation as well. A brief article was written about new submit here, if you would like to check that out here.
Editing your Print
If you have a deviation with a print already enabled, you will see the button below right on the deviation page, which looks like the image below.
Click that button and you will be taken directly to the Edit page for that print.
You will notice that a few sizes have been pre-selected for you. Those are defaults that deviantART chooses based on the size of you
Drawing Tip 1 Hello!Drawing Tip 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for being patient everyone! Here is the little trick that i use EVERY time i draw a picture.
*So if you have drawn something and you know it just doesnt look right..theres a way to tell what you need to fix. Hold your drawing up to a mirror, or flip the paper to the backside and hold it up to a light. Now this will show you a backwards image of your drawing, you'll be able to see what parts look strange and you can fix them! If you are drawing an anime face, they are usualy semetrical, using this tip will help you accomplish this and you will end up with a perfect drawing!
Good Luck everyone!!! Please let me know if this was at all helpful!
Thank you for reading,
Do you believe in the end of the World?I think that there is a collapse coming within the next few decades, caused by a mix of overpopulation, damaged environment, oil depletion, over-indebted governments, and loss of traditional values that bring stability to society. The economy will completely tank before the collapse truly happens. So I think that when Christians speak of Apocalypse they are not far from truth in that senseDo you believe in the end of the World?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now that I do think human will survive the collapse, but with depleted oil we may have to say BYE BYE to a lot of the modern world
What is your opinion about this?
What is your take on the future?
How do you imagine the world, in May 4 2033
Drawing Tip 2Hello! Thank you so much for all of your responses on the first Drawing Tip, I hope it was helpful!Drawing Tip 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sketching; If you want to draw a smooth curve think of your wrist as the pivoting point and the center of your circle. Turn your paper until it is positioned where you can lay your wrist on it and move your hand in a circular motion.
Shading; DONT BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, Dark shadows create an eye catching drawing. Be sure to have a light source That is VERY important. The natural shadows of an object are lighter then the shadows something cast onto that object, such as hair will cast a darker shadow onto a face then the mouth or the nose.

Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I never liked tutorial sites. All they seemed to offer was a slew of cheap tricks and what ever lame effect was trending at the time. I believe tutorials should be singular effects that can be built upon, used across different genres, and most importantly timeless. That is what SurrealPSD offers, along with articles concerning freelance work, and photomanipulation (as opposed to graphic design). It's a shinning gem. Plus it's ran by conzpiracy, so you know it's legit.
