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
Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation.Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory:
Still too dry and technical?
Okay, let me put it this way: the use of colours in your artwork can determine its mood and atmosphere. If you do it well, it can draw in the viewer and make them see what you want them to see by putting emphasis on certain parts. Colour theory gives you a way to know in

Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by
Alas, the world is white...A Tribute to the first snows of the season. Because I am a stock provider and photomanipulator I have chosen to feature beautiful winter related stocks that I feel could be used to create stunning photomanipulations and the photomanipulations themselves. I hope that you enjoy the collection I've brought together here and are inspired. Furthermore, these are newer snow related images, all of which were found using the keyword 'snow.'Alas, the world is white...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello everyone! :iconretardiloveitplz:
Guess what happens when you save up your money...
You get to buy stuff LIKE POINTS!!
I spent I think 40 dollars for 4,000 points.
And I also realized how low my watcher number is...
So lets have a little contest to be kind to Deviant Members and to get more watchers!
As told in the title, I'll be giving away 4,000 points.
I know a lot of give aways have more than one winner but sadly I don't have enough points for more than one winner.
So, one lucky deviant will be getting my 4,000 points. Randomly selected of course.
1. Watch me (of course)
2. Fave this journal
3. Create a journal advertising this
4. Don't forget to comment with your journal link!

Unrestricted Use DirectoryEDITUnrestricted Use Directory2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just an update. I may have doubled some up but its near midnight here so Ill sort any doubles tomorrow!
Many years ago, the amazing LawrenceDeDark created the original Unrestricted Stock Directory. A place for artists to come and find a list of stock providers who offer their resources as unrestricted. This is an update on an old list (2009, eep!) <3
Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.
1. You have to give credit.
2. You have to let the provider know.
3. You can not redistribute as a resource
Thats it, Thats as easy as Unrestricted Stock gets.
To be added to the list please NOTE me with either
Unrestricted stock account or unrestricted stock folder as the title please. This makes it easier for me.

So blackdepressivefairy is finally gone (YAY!)
At the age of 15 it sounded like a very cool name :')
I changed my name in Dingelientje-stock.
Because I use that name on most site's so it's easier to keep them together & people know i'm a stock account.
Also after my last journal the wonderful cryfordawn gave me a premium for 3 months.
I want to thank him for this lovely gift
