Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!1 year 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.

Tips for creating dark art
I have heard many people's opinions about dark art. What defines it? What's it's main features? There is many who think they create dark art, but others who tell them THAT isn't what dark art is. But is that fair? Is it up to us to decide what dark art is OR is it something we need to feel. Something that comes to every human in need and offers a cold a dark reality of comfort. Here are the opinions of some dark artists...
"Go beyond the cliché and open your mind. People think creating something dark means you have to stick to cemeteries, goth chicks, and muted tones, which is false! Embrace colour in your dark work. Use your emotions and use your art to explore the darker side of your soul. I have found some of my darkest pieces came from me sitting outside in the sunshine and simply remembering something. Such as how the sun

Getting DeviantArt pointsJust a short journal to answer one of the questions that I get a lot.Getting DeviantArt points10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First of all, it's important to know what exactly are DeviantArt points?
DeviantArt points are a currency that is used on DeviantArt alone. In this website, you can buy points, you can get them, collect them, and buy things for them. It's basically the DeviantArt equivalent to money. Which might come in useful because even for those that don't have a credit card or Paypal account, it is now possible to get a premium membership. Points can be either bought, or gotten for free from other members. There are many ways to get them. I will list a few here.
Most obvious one: Buy them for money. You need credit card or Paypal, though.
Trade them for llama's. your-username.deviantart.com/badges/ will list people that'll trade llama's for point on the right side. Give that person a llama, and you'll get some points. It's

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
Over 1.5 Million FREE Stocks, Print Size??DAMN, THAT'S AWESOME..Over 1.5 Million FREE Stocks, Print Size??11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I've been spending a lot of time trawling some awesome digitized collections, that have been released into the public domain. A number of museums and libraries have put their collections online, and at very decent sizes, encouraging the public to use, alter and interact with the works. Outstanding.
In response to this, I have created a brand new Digital Collage Tutorial, which explains where you can find these brilliant resources:

For the week's 'quick tip', I've put together a video walkthrough explaining three techniques for removing / hiding objects. In this video, we cover Content Aware Fill, The Patch Tool, and good ol' Digital Painting:

Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.shHello everyone!Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.sh2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Today we're bringing you some major changes for Film & Animation deviations, and also some new tools for deviantART muro and Sta.sh Writer!
Film submission through Sta.sh
The first major change for Film is that Sta.sh is now properly equipped to support film submissions! While it was sort of possible in the past, Sta.sh can now store and submit film files the same way other filetypes can be stored and submitted.
Keep in mind that you have to have film submission privileges in order to submit films to deviantART. For more information on this, please read this FAQ: :faq842:
Film Deviation Page Changes
The second change is regarding the layout of film deviations. The old film layout was designed with an older version of deviantART in mind, and this change places Film submissions back up to speed with the rest of the site. The Film deviation page has been updated to

Photomanips - From Sketch to FinishHeeey how's it going my friends?!Photomanips - From Sketch to Finish1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, to get straight to the point....even though almost all of my work is digital, most of the photomanipulations I create, I first sketch on paper. So, I've recentley dug up some of those sketches and decided to share them with you.
Most of them are very rough, some are a bit more refined, but I hope you'll find them interesting.

The 101 Guide To Marketing For ArtistsSlowly I get to catch up with deviations on here, now I just need to make use of the journals more oftenThe 101 Guide To Marketing For Artists8 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are some things I would be glad, someone would have told me earlier...
Marketing is such a thing - since I´m freelancing 5 years now it is save to say that is no accident that I´m happily blessed with the "just right" clients and it all boils down to be due to authentic marketing. Honestly- I embrace everything that has to do with it, below you find my write up to get a better understanding of what it is all about.
I always found interest in psychology and marketing but when I jumped on the freelancing train 5 years ago I especially embraced anything that I could find to help me understand, use and practice marketing as a way to keep myself busy with work that I love to do and to collaborate with people who respect what I do.
In the process I learned much from many different experts and in this post I will forward what I´ve learn
