Hello, Members!
Today we start our new challenge.  I hope all of you are up for meeting the challenge and learning something that you may not have known before.


A QUICK REMINDER ABOUT OUR SECRET SANTA PROJECT 2016

:rudolph:
I’ve announced our Secret Santa Project for this year, and I haven’t started matching each Santa with their Christmas Child yet, because,
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. To find out all of the information on what is a Secret Santa, how ManipulateThis runs the Project, and how to sign up, go here:

Sign Up For The Secret Santa Project 2016!

NOW, LET'S PUT ON OUR CREATIVE CAPS, READ THE CHALLENGE INFORMATION CAREFULLY, AND MAKE FANTASTIC PHOTOMANIPULATIONS!

OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
Our current challenge is called "The Lady And The Window " and it features the model stock by mizzd-stock.  

:bulletblue:DUE DATE: Sunday, November 27th.

:bulletblue:THEME: This Is A ONE STOCK Challenge. That means we are all using the same one Required Stock.

: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


:bulletblue: You're going to create an interior (room) environment and place the Fairy Princess 3 model stock of mizzd-stock into the nearest foreground.

:bulletblue: She is the SPOTLIGHT  of your image, and she is in the nearest Foreground; therefore, make her  large and forward in the image, emphasizing the detail.  This photomanipulation is about her, not the environment!
:bulletblue:  The environment you place  her in must be a ROOM with a WINDOW behind her .

:bulletblue: You must have at least three (3) ADDITIONAL STOCK in the room. This additional stock can be another model, an animal, furniture, wall décor or anything that goes well with the Required Model and the theme.

:bulletwhite: NOTE: The model appears to be a Victorian woman and the stock is called “Fairy Princess”.  Let those two themes help you make your choices of stock when putting the room together.  

: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: Through the Window, we should see a landscape far off in the distance. 

:bulletblue: DON’T NEGLECT TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF CREATING THE  ILLUSION OF DEPTH AND SPACE IN THE ROOM AND (ESPECIALLY ) THROUGH THE WINDOW.

:bulletblue: If you need to review the rules of creating the illusion of depth and space, please read this </i> “About”</i> 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!


EXAMPLES


This idea for a challenge came to me after I viewed amethystmoonsong’s deviation for the Light/Shadow and Depth Activity.
:icongrin--plz:

Enchanting Evening by amethystmoonsong


Remember, this is ONLY an example! The requirements for the activity was different from what we’re doing for the challenge. Do Not Put Animals, Etc. Indoors Unless They Can Be Indoors!

Here Are Other Examples Similar To What We Are Doing: 

After The Ball by CelticStrm    Wait for me by robhas1left



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! 


:bulletblue: Remember To 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 "The Lady And The Window" 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.

Now, go create something wonderfully Victorian, and Good Luck Meeting The Challenge!
