REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!Welcome to our official tutorial challenge!REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Another tutorial challenge? YES! Keep reading!
Part of "illumination" is learning, expanding our horizons, and helping others learn as well. So, this time we are not going to USE tutorials. Rather, we are going to MAKE them.
What you have to do
Your job is as follows:
Take a critical look at your gallery. What are your strengths as an artist? What are you really good at doing? Are you known for your light and shadow? Color use? "Glow" effects? Do you do skin well? Can you paint really well? Are you a master of masks? What do people compliment you on?
Create a detailed tutorial, with examples, of how you achieve this effect or do this technique. It does not have to involve the creation of a new deviation. You can explain how you did this effect in an old deviation or just with stock without making it a full deviation.
Photography Weekly: Edition Forty OnePhotography Weekly Header created by TouchedDPhotography Weekly: Edition Forty One3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"Have no fear of perfection - You'll never reach it! "
Have you studied Photography? I'm intrigued to know whether or not a qualification in Photography has made you a better, or indeed a worse photographer. Or has there been no change? This week, The Photography Blog asks whether or not a Photography Degree is worth the paper it's written on. Graduation in any field these days doesn't mean that you'll immediately get a job in your desired area. Not these days. So is it worth embarking on study related to photography when in the end, you could get to the same place without the paper stating what you are capable of? Photography is one of a small number of job areas where what you've done speaks higher volumes than whether or not you're

The midnight hour is close at hand . . .
Creatures crawl in search of blood . . .
To terrorize your neighborhood!
- Michael Jackson, Thriller
You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.
Welcome to our 2012 Photomanipulation Contest, "When Darkness Falls."
This contest is being held by Aeirmid and The-Sacred-Space.
We are grateful to Community Relations for backing this contest.
Any photomanipulator can join, and all are welcome.
Your task is to complete the sentence:
When darkness falls, _____
using a photomanipulation!
[In other words: Show us what happens when Darkness falls!]
You can interpret the sentence to mean anything you want.
It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre,
but it must be very clear that
The Devil's In The Detail CompetitionCompetition Status: CLOSEDThe Devil's In The Detail Competition2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Also posted here at CRLiterature.
For my 15th literature competition I want to challenge people to do something that may benefit their writing, so I present to you all the Devil's in the Detail Competition.
I'm challenging you to think of something that a person has to do at least once a month, but it could be every minute of every day, and then put it in a fantasy environment.
Brushing your teeth if you are a vampire
Walking your dog onboard a space station
Having a prostate exam when everyone else on the planet is a zombie. (eek!)
The challenge is really to focus your mind on how your characters behave and interact with their environments and how the environment being different than yours (the writers) can affect how they do those things. Hopefully this will

Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner.help corner: Emoticons4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process
Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc

All these rain entries are making me wet.
I know, I know. "April Showers bring May flowers..." Yeah, I flipped that shit, bitch. See, I knew a week into last month that I wanted this theme to be rain and it was too late to try to switch them. Anyways, this is a depressing month for me. Sure, the next 4 will be depressing, but this one is really bad as it is the month my husband actually leaves on his deployment. I am not a happy Sparkly. I want not-so-happy emotes. Granted, if you decided to do an emote dancing in the rain and having a fun time, that will make me smile and be a good thing too. Drench your emotes, have them slide down a rainbow, stormy weather them...let the rain fall down!

That's right. Pretty plants. Spring is coming in my part of the world and flowers are already poping up everywhere! I love the smells and sight of them. So, you mission is simple, if you chose to accept it. Make a flowery emote! Perhaps the emote is tending it's garden, or maybe it is part flower. Perhaps some kind of baking is happening in the kitchen (yes, I will accept FLOUR themed emotes as well, because I am kinda hungry as I type this. ) So, embrace the season, and the pixels, and get cracking!
Only new submissions for this. The emote must be submitted after the theme has been announced.

Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down.
1. Programs of choice for emoting?
I prefer using Photoshop 7. Aside from photography, it's the only chance my PS copy gets to be used for anything. When I'm on my laptop, I use MSPaint when I'm testing emoticon ideas and faces. Sort of like sketching.
2. What is your favorite legend emote?
I might have too many. I overuse , but I have several other f

Hmm....Does anyone feel like their work doesn't turn out the way you want it to? You take the time and effort to plan your ideas for what to draw, but when you draw it out it just doesn't seem to look like what you've pictured it to be in your head. I myself have many great ideas for drawings but sometimes I feel they could've been more than like what I expected. While although my skills are impressive to all of you, I really want them to be better than what they are right now.Hmm....4 months ago in Personal More Like This
In the comments below, tell me if you feel like me in the fact that your work doesn't seem to impress you sometimes. And if you expect to have better skills that what you have now in the future.
