Lora-Vysotskaya

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Ukraine
I create all manips on my iPad with some apps for iOS (now with Affinity Photo, earlier with Bazaart, ArtStudio, iColorama, Matter, Reflect etc.) I tried Photoshop, made several manips using it, but I prefer to create just with my fingers. I make photomanipulations about 4 years, and this is a very important part of my life.

Hello friends!


Can you believe that it’s already the mid-summer?! It seems we met the new year quite recently... Now it's hot and the mood is completely non-working (isn’t it?), but nevertheless life does not subside in our small photomanip world. So, what’s new here?

:new:The latest news

   :bulletred: Artists interview  


Actually this is my (Lora-Vysotskaya:iconlora-vysotskaya:) interview, that I gave to Hazel WhimsicalBlue:iconwhimsicalblue: and the group :iconart-glory: last weekend. So, if you want to get to know me and my work closer please read this:
Bubbles by Lora-Vysotskaya Artist of the Month - Lora-VysotskayaWe the group:iconart-glory: has introduced a new segment named " Artist of the Month" where we get up, close and personal with an artist, discussing about their artistic journey and most importantly what made them an "Artist".
So without further ado, let's welcome our first artist on spotlight, our very lovely :iconlora-vysotskaya:
She's a talented artist from Ukraine with her own distinctive style of art and whose contribution to DA community is incomparable.
1. Could you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started as an artist?
I live in Ukraine, I’m married and I have two daughters. I’m an engineer and a logistician, but I left my work 9 years ago when my youngest daughter was born. So, I was a dedicated housewife, when by chance  I exploredthe world of photomanipulation 4 years ago. It happened when my husband asked me to make a couple of collages for his work. At that time I had an iPad mini, and I used Bazaart (a pretty simple app for IOS) to make

    :bulletred: AMA-2 winner 


Amazing Manipulation Award (or AMA) is a project supported by the groups World-of-Art-Kingdom, Art-Revival, Stewed-Tomatoes, The-Imaginarium and DA-LOVERS. AMA is given to photo-manipulation artists for their arts, dedication, imagination, innovation, ideas, creativity, etc., which is remarkable for the community of manipulation, and deserves an award. An amazing artist no1intheworld:iconno1intheworld: became the June’s winner in category ENCHANTING WAY OF USING LIGHT with this work:

:spotlight-left: Monthly  spotlight :spotlight-right:

This month I want to introduce you a wonderful unordinary artist from Russia Lyudmila, aka Poglazovs:iconpoglazovs:. A graduate of the cornacchia-art’s photoart school, disciple and follower of Incantata, Lyudmila has an unique recognizable style and creates most part of her amazing photomanipulations from her own photos.
Lyudmila talks of herself as about a not very sociable and mouthy person, but she loves her friends. She appreciates extraordinarity, daintiness, intelligence. And this is felt in her works! As Lyudmila says, photomanipulation for her is a way of expressing herself, thoughts, language, emotions, drive... a new life! She admires and tries to learn from fantastic artists (MarcelaBolivar, Helga-Helleborus, BrietOlga and other), but she isn’t afraid to experiment, to take off, to fall, rise again, and go by her own way. And Lyudmila advices to beginners to do the same, because this is the most valuable!
Please enjoy Lyudmila’s beautiful works and give her your love and support:

Photomanip Series Feature
I've stumbled accross some amazing photomanipulation series in the last couple of weeks, and since my previous journal is incredibly old already I felt like it would be a good time to give a shout-out to those passionate artists, who are brave enough to tackle such a thing. From my own experience I know it can be pretty tough to complete a series of images, which are all visually and conceptually connected but still unique in their own way. This is especially true in the photomanip genre, where we're often reliant on a pool of photos and therefore limited in following the visual guidelines we set for ourselves. I last attempted to create a series in 2015, but the images ended up more distinct in terms of technique and style than I would have liked. At least I managed to finish the series, though. :XD:
Of course this list is not meant to be complete! What photomanip-series did you enjoy that I didn't mention here? Let me know in the comments. :thumbsup:
