GROUP NEWS

Hello, To You Wonderful Members!

This new challenge is our last challenge for the year, and it will run for three weeks.  Then we can all enjoy the holidays and start again in the new year.

:bulletwhite: SPECIAL NOTE: I realize that I owe some of you points and stock gifts for participating in the October challenges and November activity. I am so sorry! I’ve been so busy lately with extra projects that i just plum forgot. Don’t worry, I will catch up at the end of the week after I announce the Picks Of The Week for the last challenge.

A QUICK REMINDER ABOUT OUR SECRET SANTA PROJECT 2016

:rudolph: It’s not too late to join this year’s Secret Santa Project. WE NEED MORE SECRET SANTAS! And that means YOU! It’s easy to participate, it’s fun to create a photomanipulation for a secret member, and cool to get a special Christmas gift created just for you. Find all of the information on what is a Secret Santa, how ManipulateThis runs the Project, and how to sign up here:

OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
Our current challenge is called ”From Autumn To Winter” and it features the model stocks of Jaymasee and Liancary-art.

:bulletblue:DUE DATE: Sunday, December 18. 2016  
Please Watch The Count Down Clock For The Exact Due Time In Your Area.

:bulletblue:THEME: This is a Season Theme Challenge And You’ll Have Your Choice Of Doing A Fantasy or Historical Image.

:bulletblue: ENTRIES: You Can Enter Twice For The Competition. See Below On How To Enter When Your Photomanipulation Is Complete.


THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DOING


We have never done a challenge like this before, so I don’t have any examples.  I had created a photomanipulation in January 2013 for the ”Fairy In Winter” Challenge that you can use as an example.


Roses Are Red by TheFantaSim


As you can see, this is an image of a fairy exiting a Winter environment to enter a Spring environment by passing under an arch.

This is what you’re doing, except your model will exit an Autumnn environment and enter a Winter environment by passing under an arch.

Please Come Up With Soemthing Better Than This. It is ONLY An Example, And Not One Of My Best Images.


:bulletblue: Select ONE Model Stock From The Required Stocks Found Below. You can select a female or a male.

:bulletblue: The Model Is The SPOTLIGHT  Of Your Image, and should be large and forward in the imagel.  This photomanipulation is about them, not the environment!

:bulletblue:   You Must Use An Arch Stock of some sort and place it in the Middle Ground of your image.

:bulletblue: You Must Use A Total Of At Least Three (3) ADDITIONAL STOCK To Create The Autumn Environment And Three MORE For The Winter Environment.  

:bulletblue: The Autumn And Winter Environment Should Match The Model You've Selected. In other words, if it’s a fairy, place her in a whimsical Autumn and Winter. If it’s the Medieval male, place him in a historical environment.

:bulletblue: Remember, if you use 3D Rendered stock with your Photo stock, you are creating a Mixed Media. Do not select photomanipulation as your media when you categorize your deviation. Categorize it as Digital Art > Mixed Media.

:bulletwhite: I will be checking for 3D Rendered stock and will send you a reminder Note if you forget to select the right category.

:bulletblue: DON’T NEGLECT TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF CREATING THE  ILLUSION OF DEPTH AND SPACE IN THE AUTUMN ENVIRONMENT THAT YOUR MODELS IS LEAVING!

:bulletblue: If you need to review the rules of creating the illusion of depth and space, please read this “About” walk through.

About: Creating The Illusion Of Space And Depth


:bulletblue: DON’T NEGLECT TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF LIGHT AND SHADOW.

:bulletblue: If you need to review the rules of light and shadow, see this quick review here:



Light/Shadows And Depth Activity!



Remember: We Are Artist Who Use Photomanipulation As Our Medium. You CAN And SHOULD:
:bulletblue: Make Sure That The Direction Of Your Light Is Consistent Throughout Your Scene.
:bulletblue: Edit A Stock As You Need For The Final Result That You Want: Remove or Add Something, Change Color, Up/Lower Saturation, etc.
:bulletblue: Use Brushes, Textures, Special Techniques And A Little Show Of Special Effects To Enhance Your Over All Image.
:bulletblue: Create A Dynamic Scene!

In other words,  

We Are FINE ARTIST! Remember:


:bulletblue: BE CREATIVE! It is more than simply sticking stock into a background stock!

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR DEVIATION IS COMPLETED--For COMPETITIVE AND NON-COMPETITIVE ENTRIES


Updated: August 4, 2016
:bulletblue: First, in the Artist's Comments box, make sure you post that your deviation is for the “From Autumn To Winter” Challenge at ManipulateThis and include our icon.

:bulletblue: Second, have the level you're entering under (Level 2 for Beginners; Level 3 for Intermediate; Level 4 for Advance). :bulletwhite: Choose your level carefully and accurately. A wrong level can affect your success in the group, and I want everyone to succeed!

:bulletwhite:If you're not sure about your level, please read a description of each level in the rules.manipulatethis.deviantart.com/… , or contact me and I'll be happy to view your gallery and make a decision on your best fit for our group.

Please don't go up a level until you and I decide that you are ready. :bulletred: No Changing Levels From One Challenge To Another!  
If you are not happy with a deviation, and still want to participate, please select NON-COMPETITIVE (follow instructions below for Non-Competitive).

:bulletblue: Once you've uploaded to your art account, submit your deviation to ManipulateThis by selecting the group from the "Submit To Group" link on the right hand side of your original deviation.


Or, if the group name is not there, select "Type A Group Name" and add our name. Submit to the FEATURED folder.

:bulletblue: Your entry must be approved before it's placed into the FEATURED gallery. I always move from the FEATURED folder to the challenge/contest/activity folder, so don't worry about that.

Remember, deviations that are NOT for the challenge will be declined.

:bulletblue: You will receive a confirmation message at your art account if the entry was accepted or not. If it's not accepted within a reasonable amount of time, check your Correspondence messages to see if you received a comment telling you why.

:bulletblue: Please take care of any problem as soon as possible and reply to the comment so that we can accept your entry. :bulletred: Sometimes I'll send you a note from your deviation telling you that something needs to be altered before the end of the challenge. Your entry has NOT been removed from the challenge in such cases.


:bulletred: IMPORTANT! If the above happens and you do not delete the original deviation from your gallery, please send a group note so that I know to remove the original entry.

WHAT TO DO WITH A "NON-COMPETITIVE" ENTRY

:bulletwhite: Please follow the requirements for the challenge even if you are not competing.

:bulletwhite: Please include the same information in the Comments box as noted above for Competitive Entries. :bulletwhite: Very Clearly, Write "NON-COMPETITIVE CHALLENGE ENTRY".


I am here to help. If you have any questions or need my help, don't hesitate to leave a comment below this journal or contact a Staff member or me privately.

I'll even be happy to look at your deviation before you submit to the group. Simply send a note to my art account. You can upload to your sta.sh account if you like. Send me either the sta.sh link or the link of the original deviation in your gallery and I'll be happy to comment and help your privately before you submit.

Have Fun Creating!

Hello. Another wonderful challenge xxxx
 
I would love to participate but it appears I have exceeded the limit of uploading to your gallery? 

Ok I have uploaded 4 stock photos and 1 in open gallery.  Should that stop my loading one to the challenge ??
