Greetings!



Yes, you read that right: Photomanip MONTH! :XD:
This month we are putting together many interesting  contests and challenges, games and activities, and lots of chances to win fabulous prizes! We hope everyone will learn something along the way as well.
This Project is hosted by projecteducate The-Sacred-Space CRPhotomanipulation , with our leader and headmaster Aeirmid :)


About this month


We see this month as an opportunity for all of us to share what we know and build a stronger community. We had originally conceived of this month as "Advanced Photomanipulation Month," but we figured that might be exclusive to a great portion of our community. So, while we plan to focus on mainly advanced topics, we promise there will be something for everyone.


About our theme: Illumination


The community chose the theme for this month: Illumination. This theme has a double-entendre:

:bulletpink: It is about LIGHT and, conversely, shadow
:bulletpink: It is about epiphany, knowledge, and the expansion of the mind



Activities


:star: :bulletpink: We have a kick-off party on October 1st (that's today!) at 11 AM dA time (Pacific time).
:star-half: :bulletpink: We have a variety of challenges for you to take part in. We think you'll find them entertaining and enjoyable!
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We have a lot of really fantastic interviews and opportunities for people to share their stories.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We'll be telling you like it is in the Straight-Talk Corner. :XD:
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We have two contests that we'll tell you about shortly.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We'll give you some tips for manipulating, even if you've never opened up Photoshop (or any other program) before.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We'll have historical information about photomanipulation in popular culture.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We'll answer all of your questions about photomanip, from how to do light and skin to how DDs are chosen.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: There will be a Community Forum (date TBA) where we can come together and talk about the things that are going well and things that can be improved in our community.
:star-empty: :bulletpink: We will have education about using legitimate resources in photomanips.


So, buckle up! We hope you will enjoy the ride. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions this month, you can send them via note to projecteducate or to Aeirmid. Happy deviating!

Second challenge!  Create a Tutorial



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. :XD: :excited:


What you have to do



Your job is as follows:
:bulletpink: 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?

:bulletpink: 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.

:bulletpink: Your tutorial can be for any program as long as it is for photomanipulation.

:bulletpink: Your tutorial must be UNIQUE. Do not turn in an old tutorial you've already written or copy someone else's. It must be made after October 1st, 2012.

:bulletpink: You should give step-by-step instructions, with screen shots, of what you are doing. It does not need to be long, but it should be detailed.

:bulletpink: Turn it in to the Tutorial Challenge Oct 2012 folder at CRPhotomanipulation by 11:59 PM Pacific Time (2:59 PM Eastern time, 7:59 AM GMT) on October 28th.


What are the prizes?



:bulletpink: One winner: 4,000 points
:bulletpink: One runner-up: 2,000 points


Judges



Aeirmid, nikkidoodlesx3, StarsColdNight, and possibly others to be named


Judging criteria



What are we looking for?
:bulletpink: Effectiveness (Can we walk through it and do it right?)
:bulletpink: Clarity of explanation (Does it make sense? Can you follow it?)
:bulletpink: Usefulness of topic (Is this something we need to know?)
:bulletpink: Appearance (What does the tutorial LOOK like?)


Questions? Feel free to leave them in the blogs below where the leader will reply soon :bye:

Welcome to Photomanipulation Month!Greetings!
Yes, you read that right: Photomanip MONTH! :XD:
When I first came on board as the Community Volunteer for Photomanipulation, I wanted to have a photomanipulation workshop month, or a "boot camp," to help our community members hone their skills and to help people from outside the community learn more about what we do. Kaz-D had the brilliant idea of turning it into a Photomanipulation Month with Project Educate! So, here we are!
This month will  be filled with contests and challenges, games and activities, and lots of chances to win fabulous prizes! We hope everyone will learn something along the way as well. :heart:
