The Idea

We all know the photo manipulations with a beautiful lady on a beautiful background with some beautiful animals and magical themes.. But we're not looking for those! The name says it all, Unusual-Manips was created to exist for strange and unusual photo manipulations. The more surprising, the better. :clap: That said, this group will also be a place where the idea and originality of an artwork is much more important than the skill level of the artist.

This group was created with several goals:

:bulletpurple: Raise more appreciation for things out of the ordinary
:bulletpurple: Inspire people to make super original photo manipulations
:bulletpurple: Collect a wonderful gallery full of mind-blowing artworks
:bulletpurple: Have fun! :D

Please check this Journal for more information about the group:
Unusual-Manips infoThis journal is meant as a means to explain the most basic ideas, rules and guidelines of this group.

Train of Thoughts

Train of Thoughts is a project in which artists inspire each other. One artist creates a photo manipulation, the next artist will make an artwork inspired by it, and so forth! Eventually it will be a wonderful collection of interconnected works of art.

Inspiration can be anything, therefore you are free in how to be inspired. You can use one of the same stock photo's as the previous artist, make a different artwork based on the same idea or continue the train of thought and philosophize further about the thoughts of the previous artist. The only requirement to the inspiration, is that you describe it in your artist comments.

There is no final date to the project. Because the train of thoughts can theoretically be continued indefinitely. This is not a contest, not competitive, it is just to have fun! Your skill level is not all that important, the thought behind your artwork is the most important thing. All the artworks in the project must however be as original as possible, to suit the ideas of this group.

To start off the project, I made an artwork which will be the first inspiration.

To Plant a Thought by DinowCookie

From here on, it's up to you. Leave a comment to this journal entry if you want to take part, and you'll be assigned a number on the list! Artworks will be made in order of who comes first on the list. First come, first serve.

A few rules are in place:

:bulletorange: All the general group rules apply (fav.me/db8owf5)
:bulletorange: You have seven days to finish your artwork, starting when the artist before you has uploaded their work. You will be notified of this. If you don't finish within given time, the next artist will be notified. Finishing as soon as possible is encouraged.
:bulletorange: Leave a comment for your spot on the list! :D You can take part several times! (If a lot of people want to participate, first-time participants will be placed further up the list.)
:bulletorange: You must describe your inspirations in the artists' comments. Be original! :)
:bulletorange: At least three different stock images should be used. Stock credits are required. Your artwork should be at least 500 x 500 px.

Apologies. Never received them on this end. Something is going haywire with many groups. Missing request, invitations, submissions.

Will send you an invite. Hope you get it! Smiley soleil - Sun
