Photomanip Newsletter June 2017

Sun Jun 11, 2017, 2:56 AM

Hello everyone!

With a little delay we're here again with the monthly review. It's Summer, the holidays season, but our Little photomanip World is still full of news, contests, games, projects, and of course active and creative artists, who make this Big World better. 

deviantART The latest news


    📌Red Riding Hood: the end of the story.


The grandiose cooperative contest, initiated by Mr-Ripley ended a few days ago. According to Mr-Ripleythis contest has become a huge success and memorable experience! I agree with him, we need such joint events, collaborative work, they are able to bring people around the world together! (Excuse my pathetical mood today;)) So, here are the winners of the Red Riding Hood Contest:



    📌New group 


A new group Unusual-Manips was founded a month ago by DinowCookie, a creative artist, who thinks outside the box and invokes us to do the same. Read more about the group, their first project and contest here:

Unusual-Manips infoThis journal is meant as a means to explain the most basic ideas, rules and guidelines of this group.
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
To reach these goals, in the there will be events, projects, challenges and contests. :dum
 
Train of Thoughts - group project!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 h
Contest - The longer you look...… the more you see!
Deadline: July 3rd, 2017
This is the first contest in the group Unusual-Manips and it is all about elements of surprise!  :O_o:  
One of my personal favourite things in art, is when at first sight, the artwork seems quite regular, but then upon closer look you see a lot of unexpected things. Instead of an in-depth explanation, here are a few wonderful artworks, which will show you what I mean.
:pointr:Examples

The first two examples both have a lot of different things going on, which makes you have to look longer, and closer, to see everything. Notice the flowers’ eyes :eye: in Lyssiana’s artwork? And the upside down kid in theSong‘s piece?  

The second set of examples seem less noisy, more “normal”, at first sight. But upon closer look, there are a couple of surprising elements. In :devamandinevanr

   📌Meet New Artists - special blog collection 

The-Imaginarium started a new Special blog collection , with the intention of promoting New Artirts and some Undiscovered Photomanipulators, and make you meet new artists to follow. Their first blog is dedicated to JayGraphixx, Poglazovs and Vera-Orlova:

   📌Project Educate

This is not a news, just a short guide to projecteducate group, a great community for all. Project Educate is an opportunity for Community Volunteers and deviants to work together on producing content on an education or awareness level to the DA community on topics such as art mediums, art techniques, art history, DA related topics, and so much more!

A quick and simple guide to Project Educate!Hello all!
Based on our recent poll, a large number of you feel confused about how projecteducate works and how you can become involved. Therefore, this quick guide is being posted in the hopes to help clarify things! Please let us know if you have any remaining questions, and let us know if this helped at all!
This has nothing to do with anything I just wanted some Jon Snow up in here.
What exactly is Project Educate?

Let's make it real simple: Project Educate is a group focused on YOU, the DA community. It is an opportunity for Community Volunteers and deviants to work together on producing content on an education or awareness level to the DA community on topics such as art mediums, art techniques, art history, DA related topics, and so much more! It's a group that will hopefully allow for you to learn and discover new things but also gives you a chance to share your expertise and knowledge with a large audience. Beyond that, we also host contests and challe

     📌What inspires us in digital art


KovoWolf 
asked the community to share with her some of their favorite pieces as well as what digital art means to them and how it inspires them: 

Digital Art Inspiration
Digital Art Inspires
All Things Within Us
Digital art is one of those mediums that has a limitless supply of wonderful things you can conjure up from the deepest parts of your imagination. It has a near endless avenue for creating. You can use any palette and digital tool your heart desires to create your masterpiece yet still have the fluidity of pure and raw creativity.
"Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world"
- Brene Brown
As a digital artist myself I find that there are so many pieces that truly touch and inspire me. So much so I am able to refuel my own creativity from it. I've asked the community to share with me some of their favorite pieces as well as what digital art means to them and how it inspires them!

Check out his works and give some love to a very valued member of our photomanip community!
⭐️Some another artists also received special spotlights this month:
Featured member of the Month, SummerDreams-ArtSummerDreams-Art  
She believes personal information are a cliched way of introducing oneself.

Her page/gallery is filled with artworks which act as a platform of conveying who or what she is and to some extent they also serve as an expression of her thoughts, feelings and emotions.
She also believes that they speak to everyone in a language universal to all but understood by too few- 
Silence. The 'silent' aspect in all of them speaks loudly & clearly....about the person that is "Me".
And the echo, in the end leaves behind fragments of my dreams and thoughts.

New Username, New Facebook Page + Featurenew facebook page

Hello my friends! As you may have noticed, I've recently changed my dA username from Ideasplayer to my name -- Petya Plamenova. This was not a decision I made overnight. I've been thinking about it for a while now and I believe it  was a right decision.  Back in 2011 I've started my website Ideasplayer with the idea to make it a place for Photoshop tutorials & resources. But things have changed over those years. Most importantly I changed!  I feel that this name just doesn't fit me anymore.  And what name would suit me better than my own? So, I've changed it here, it was the easy part. It was a little trickier with my Facebook page though as the new name looked way too different from the current one and they wouldn't allow the change. I had no other choice but create a new page. So I did!
If you like my art and want to see wip's, before-afters and more than I post here, follow me!

On vacation and Underrated art FeatureHi everyone! :D
So I've crossed the ocean again and will be more or less away for the next few weeks, be back by the end of the month. Meanwhile, I'll have some time to go online like now, but who knows how much or when, so there will be some fav and run and a lot of delay answering comments, notes, etc. Sorry to the ones of you who've already been waiting, and those who I'll inevitably make wait in the next days.
Other than that, kind of been missing making features and since I'm still afraid DA will delete half the deviations when making long ones, I just decided to go another route.
Today's feature is for the artworks that I faved in the last weeks and I think need more recognition; all of these have less than 100 favs at the time I write this, some don't even have 20.
So if you like them please get to their comments section and leave these awesome artists some love. :heart:

100 members!We just reached 100 members in Unusual-Manips, and we achieved this in little over one month since the group was founded. How cool is that? :la:
To celebrate, a feature of recent artwork from some of our members. Thank you all for joining :heart: :hug:

Winners of Red Riding Hood contest :wave:







:iconfplz:inally, Red Riding Hood contest in both photomanip and drawing categories has come to an end.
This is my 3rd contest that I hosted on DA, but it's the first time I cooperated with many friends in every step.
With so many kind helps and supports from them in finding prizes, spreading news and selecting the best entries;
this contest has become a huge success and memorable experience!
We got 12,900 Points as prizes and many wonderful exclusive stocks to give,
and 79 wonderful photomanip entries and 53 awesome drawing entries
 in various skill levels and different styles from manga to expressionism to judge!!!
I have tried out the co-hosts & special judges system, and invented the scores that depend on points donation for hosts.
I also opened voting in

1 Place
"Sing Once Again With Me, Our Strange Duet" by BluScreenPhotography


This one has kind of a dark Phantom of the Opera feel. I love the creativity and the atmospheric feel of this beautiful scene. A wonderful concept blending the boat into a wonderful dreamscape. The rising mist and candlelight really add a hauntingly romantic touch to the scene.The entire scene evokes the musical very well. Excellent work for a beginner.

"Don't feed them" by KarmaRae

I love the originality and the humor in this one and the execution is quite okay for a beginner entry. This is very different, it has a very surreal feel to it.

Step by Step - Retouching a Fantasy Portrait by annewipf
The Main Faults of a Beginner (Me in 2012)... and how to correct them.
 
Credits and links to the stocks used on the new picture I Ching 05 - Xu (Waiting)
I was a bit ashamed about this picture done in 2012 and chose to redo it entirely (with another house, due to the removal from dA of the first one). But what were the main mistakes and how can we correct them?
Here are the faults which immediately grabbed my eyes:

1. BLENDING
In 2012, I didn't master the adjustment layers and I tried to blend the pictures together using a full of colored layers (colors picked on every source layer) on a soft light mode: it may be a solution sometimes, but it often gives a bad result as we can see here: The foliages are too yellow compared to the rest of the picture; the house looks like a visible collage; the pixels are
