When Darkness FallsA reminder to everyone about the current photomanipulation contest running at the moment, hosted by Aeirmid your lovely Photomanipulation Community Volunteer at :iconthe-sacred-space: and supported by :iconstockandresources: with prizes also being donated by :iconcommunityrelations:
Darkness has fallen across the land of photomanipulation.
Haunted spirits and growling fiends descend on every nation.
And terror enthralls those within these walls,
Is this what transpires when darkness falls?
Or, perhaps gentle fairies emerge from 'neath a delicate daisy petal,
and the boys in the band gather in shadow to play their heavy metal?
And a drow elf crawls from the forest's lush walls,
Maybe this is what transpires when darkness falls!
Blame no one but ^SanguineVamp for this "poetry."
You decide what happens (transpires) when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.

Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest 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

We are still biting our fingernails and bouncing on the edge of our seats for the changes to be made to the stock and resources galleries. Don't worry! We've not forgotten them!
We have been making a concerted effort to track down and report celebrity images, and other non-legit resources and user accounts - though you probably wouldn't notice given how many there are.
Stock things you should know and be aware of
DON'T EVER EVER take a brush set from another website and upload it here under the pretence that its yours. We, and the artists who regularly use such brushes are not stupid. You and your accounts will be reported and will be removed. No matter how many times you ban evade.

Stock Providers! We have been listening! <3Your concerns about the state of our gallery...Stock Providers! We have been listening! <3 in Art Features More Like This
Are the things that concern us all, I hope with the updates and clarifications to our FAQ specific to stock and resources, plus an official reminder of the stock and resources policies here --->
Will help to refute the rumours going around that staff and volunteers don't care about the "non-stock" being posted in our gallery.
I am here to tell you with absolute certainty that we DO care A LOT!!!!! Getting things like this into action to start resolving some of the far reaching issues we face as an integral part of the wider DA community takes time, but still doesn't mean your concerns are being ignored.
We will be working very VERY VERY hard to make a significant impact on the huge amount of "celeb stock" and "renders" (that aren't actually renders ) and all the other "stuff" thats being submitted to stock and resources.
Its not going to get better over night.

Precut stock - all the problems :/
Precut stock is something that like Marmite, people either love, or hate. Either way it brings its own special issues to stock providers and photomanipulators alike, so I've highlighted some very important points you should take into consideration below.
Precut stock is in its very nature "EDITED" therefore its is no longer in its original photographic form and should therefore be posted to resources/clipart OR stock/premade backgrounds/.. NOT to the usual stock galleries which should be reserved for original photography that has only very minor post production edits such as exposure/brightness/contrast etc. alterations according to DA's gallery definitions.

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

Celebrating Diversity #1Welcome to this new series of Art Features! Even tho most of you are aware of the many many galleries and categories here on dA, I think most of us move in a sort of "comfort zone" between Galleries, Channels or Groups that provide us with a constant flow of new art. And sometimes we forget all the other great artforms, styles and media that are out of our "comfort zone". And today I want to step out of that warm and cuddly place and feature some awesome works from places on dA I don't usually visit!Celebrating Diversity #1 in Art Features More Like This

In short, PostScript was able to interpret any data (vector f.e.) into printable raster graphics, which require dpi settings; Type as well as graphics.

This feature of Typography showcases works that play with negative spac. This recurring theme in both Art and Design, challenges our mind in sometimes such a subtle manner that it is simply amazing. Using negative space for words while keeping the text readable is a trick that shows us how our minds are capable of so much more.

R&S - Font Gallery Update!!I am very happy to make an announcement today that is something that I have been eyeing suspiciously for a while and now am very relieved to see it done:R&S - Font Gallery Update!! in Deviant Events More Like This
The Resource & Stock Images > Fonts gallery has been relaunched!
Take a look at the changes here!
Now, without going into much detail, it used to be subpar. The category names were unprofessional and confusing, leading to frustrating search results and many many miscats.
Over the last month there has been a lot of work put into changing this status.
So first of all I’d like to thank Elandria and Dan-Heffer who were very much in favor of the change and supported me in my endeavours to come up with a good gallery tree, despite being no experts on the topic of fonts, but giving me an outsiders input
Naturally I have to thank Moonbeam13 as well, as she supported the idea as well and made t

A brief introduction to the Typography galleries that can be found on deviantART.
(All gallery names are linked, so you can click and browse)
I know, the galleries can be pretty confusing! You can submit Typography to both digital and traditional galleries. Of course, this depends on how you created the work. If you scan a piece, it does not automatically make it digital. And if you draw a part of it, but add elements on a computer to it, it is no longer traditional (Technically it would be Mixed Media, but everything with a typographic content is Typography. Mixed Media however, if it implied use of a graphic program to add to the work, is ALWAYS Digital Art.)
Enough of the boring stuff, here are the galleries

Here they are in all their glory - later today I will put out the poll with the 10 finalists for you to vote on. Again I want to stress that you are NOT allowed to ask your watchers and friends to vote for you! Not in a journal, not via notes! If I find out you've been soliciting votes, you'll be disqualified and banned from participating in the next challenges!
When you use stock that is not yours, not only do you need to credit your sources, but you ALSO need to comply with any other rules the stocker has laid out. One of these rules is usually to NOTE THEM with the thumb or link to your deviation, so they can see what you've done! This is not optional, it's mandatory if the stocker requests it! So please, try to remember to tell them about use, too!

This absolutely hillarious video has been "infecting" the web for some time now (and I wanted to feature it sooner, but oh well, life and such). The first time I saw it, I was laughing so hard, because many of these things, I actually do in manips - sometimes not this quickly, but I do. And it is done daily for just about any magazine cover or vip photo shoot that you get to see! This is the true part about this video. And it's the sad part, too.
Uncover the fake Beauty
As a photomanipulator, I am often amazed at what other non-photoshop (or any other graphics programme) users will accept as real without question. Especially younger ones will be influenced by this image they see day in day out and aspire to be like it. To be as fake and "perfect" as the cover girl. How can you achieve anything like that in real life? You can't. It's that simple.
All that is left is Photoshop - the real one. You don't need a fancy plug-in to make all th

PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition! 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.
Community Voices: What is a Daily Deviation?DDs: The deviantART definitionCommunity Voices: What is a Daily Deviation? in Deviant Events More Like This
So, as the title says, What in the world IS a Daily Deviation (DD), anyway?
You know what deviantART says about it, right? Under :faq61: it says:
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
That says nothing about a DD being a perfect specimen of art-- in fact, it doesn't even use the word "art" at all. Basically, as CVs, when we are giving a DD, we are doing so because we think the image is interesting and well-done and deserves your attention. It may be technically exquisite. It may be technically quite good but exceptionally thought-provoking. It may be exceedingly creative. It may be all of these things! Above all else, it should stand out in some way from others in that medium or gallery.
Creative Challenge #1What is this?Creative Challenge #1 in Deviant Events More Like This
After a bit of ado, we are happy to introduce some new challenges that we hope will inspire some more creativity in our community as well as encourage ALL of us (ourselves included) to learn some new skills and expand our repertoire! For these challenges, we will require the use of one piece of stock that, while lovely and very useful, might typically be considered "overused," and one new skill or technique.
We know there are a lot of challenges out there already, but here are the goals for ours:
To address concerns of "copying" and "lack of creativity" by challenging people to think more creatively about their art,
To help members of our community learn more and expand their skills by challenging them to learn new techniques, and
To maintain the focus of our community on art, growth, and support.
Let's get started!
How does it work?

The idea, once again, is that we are creating a “fractured” fairytale in which we will be twisting a well-known story into something completely different. Can you take the story and put your own alternative spin on it?

My personal opinion on copying and creativityHi, everyone!My personal opinion on copying and creativity in Personal Journal More Like This
So, it's time for another opinion piece. Our community is buzzing with talk of people copying one another's art, and everyone wants to protect themselves against it. Let's see if we can work through it, alright?
I want to share what dA says about exactly duplicating someone's work with you, and then I want to present both sides of this controversy. I will then explain my own *personal* opinion and propose some potential solutions. Sound good? Let's get started.
What is deviantART's policy?
Before I go on, I need to be super clear:
I do not speak for dA.
I couldn't, even if I wanted to! I'm only a volunteer!
But, I can link you to what dA says about copying others' work. The bit most directly related to this issue is: :faq304:
This policy basically is saying that your work can be removed if you "directly and deliberately" copy someone else's work without their permission. It also tells you how to report these issues if

When we don't see enough of a particular art form, it is difficult for us to understand or appreciate it. This project aims to bring you features that you might not have seen otherwise from a variety of galleries around dA. For example, I tend to live and breathe photomanipulations and (to a lesser extent) digital art, and I really enjoyed taking a moment to browse the non-photomanipulation galleries for treasures. I found many, and I hope you will enjoy the features I have chosen.

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
