DDs I Have Given

I'm the Photomanipulation CV and the Digital Art CV (with diphylla)

Here are my basic rules:

  • I feature Daily Deviations (DD) in the following Digital Art categories: Photomanipulation, Mixed Media, and Drawings and Paintings. I cannot feature anything else.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Credit must be provided to stock artists and other resource providers, and stock must be from legitimate sources (i.e., not Google). FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
  • Please let me know if you want to remain anonymous as a suggester; if you do not specify I will assume that you want your name listed on the DD.
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest

Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion. Include the thumb code for the deviation and, if you desire, the reason why you think the deviation should be featured.

I may not reply to all suggestions. Rest assured that I do give every suggestion careful consideration.

Hi everyone,

Here are some action steps based on today's Photomanipulation Community meeting. We are looking for people to head these things up. If you see an activity or project below that you would like to take the lead on, please let me know. Please don't assume others will do it; if we want to get things done we often have to step up ourselves and get our hands dirty. If no one's name is next to the item, it's all yours!

Here are the activities:

On creativity:

:bulletblack: Coaching competition - A coaching/mentoring contest in small groups.

:bulletblack: Stock challenges with stock that is being underused (Elandria) - Regular challenge series in partnership with the stock community to encourage manipulators to use stock that is rarely used to create something different.

:bulletblack: DON'T COPY ME challenge - Regular challenge series in which you are given a list of really awesome photomanips. You have to choose one and use most of the same stock but use it in a different way to create something unique

:bulletblack: Tutorial competition - Create a tutorial based on a new work using a single skill you feel people can really improve

On feedback:

:bulletblack: Feedback Zone (CRPhotomanipulation admins) -Turn CRPhotomanipulation into a feedback zone where you must give feedback to submit

:bulletblack: "Before and After" feedback contest - You obtain constructive critique on one of your works, then recreate the work based on the critique. We will include a bonus prize for best feedback comment/critique

On elitism and inclusiveness:

:bulletblack: Inclusive group - Sacred-Seven is a group run by manipulators of varying backgrounds and skill levels. We are opening our doors to all members during the week of September 22nd. We are a social group as well as an art group, and our purpose is to promote personal empowerment through art. Everyone is welcome.

:bulletblack: Welcome group (RockStocks) - A group for welcoming new photomanipulators to dA and helping them get settled in the community

- Anti-bullying group - A group that will provide resources for combating bullying and harassment on dA (Note: Bullying and harassment should be reported to the dA Help Desk as well).

To those present in the chat: If I forgot anything, please let me know, and thank you for being there!

I'm really excited about these projects and hope you will be as well. If you have other ideas or want to get involved, please let me know!



Photomanip Chat, anyone?

Sat Sep 20, 2014, 9:27 AM

I'm back!

Thanks for your well wishes; I had to bury two people I loved within 4 days. I have a lot of DD suggestions to get through, and I can't promise I will reply to all of them because there are about 100, and I'm behind on work, too.

Results of our research

We as a community identified the following issues in the following order as being most important to us:

1. "Trash" in the gallery (NOTE: This means inflations, screencaps, etc., NOT beginner manipulations!!)
2. Creativity
3. Elitism
4. Inability to give/receive proper feedback

We also identified that the biggest strength our community has is its people. We have a high level of talent, a sense of collegiality, and great sources of inspiration.

So, how can we use our strengths to address our weaknesses? Let's talk about it.

Join me

Join me now in #CRPhotomanipulation (just click that link) to discuss some of these issues and come up with solutions together. I prefer impromptu chats because scheduled ones are not well-attended anyway, but if we need to schedule a specific time to talk we can do that, too.

Let's make forward progress! :heart:

I'm Jaimie, but my friends in "real life" and online call me Jade.

I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Public Health. That takes a lot of my time, but in my free time I enjoy creating art and spending time with friends and family. My best friend is a golden retriever; my two-legged best friend is amazing, too. :XD:

When I can find the time, I enjoy photomanipulation and dabble in painting with acrylics.
My favorite styles of photomanipulation are fantasy and emotional, but I love all art that is done creatively and with heart.

My personal favorites are the color red and anything Halloween-related.

Proud to be an
