Back to the Grind Photomanipulation FeatureAlways finding excuses for features.
Been away for a while, life went a lil crazy on me and now I have over 900 notifications to check here on DA. So yeah even though I've been posting articles I haven't really been around much and now it's time to start getting back up to date. But let this work as a general thank you for the interest, support, friendship and good wishes sent this way, I'll get back to you some time soon.
And now... it's FEATURE TIME!

Get Well, Mom! Art ChallengeSome of you may know that my mom is ThruCarolsEyes-Stock. Well I'd like to host a little challenge for you, and for her, as a get well present. She just had surgery today. It went really well and all everything is great, but she won't be coming home from the hospital for a few days. Her recovery is going to take a couple of weeks at least, so I thought it would be a great surprise for her if we held a little challenge on the side for her to see when she's feeling better.
Create an art piece in your favorite medium. It's open to all galleries, and everyone is welcome to join in.
Here are a few things Mom likes:
- Happy little fat birds.
- Edwardian/Victorian/Pre-Raphaelite/Art Nouveau/Deco themes (she's not really into the dark gothic styles.)
- Vintage looks (i.e. the 50s, 40s, 30s, etc.)
- Warm and rich color palettes (reds, blues, greens, golds, etc)
- Swirly florals and postcard type stuff.
- Landscapes and waterscapes

1. Could you try to describe the process of realizing your ideas? Do you form the idea clearly at first then search for ways to realize it , or vivid visual metaphors come first, gradually forming the idea, or it happens totally different from all of the mentioned above?
deas come at any time to me, that's why I keep always a sketch book near me. I can either make a basic composition or just write down my first thoughts.
I tend to be very careful and take in my hands the most part of it (be it photos, props or textures), I don't like to lose control of that, my visions gets in some way lost if I c
Manip Academy 1: Depth in the sceneryWelcome to Manip Academy 2.0!
What is it about?
Manip Academy is about learning and sharing! Much like in a real school, the idea of this project is to teach you valuable Photoshop tricks on a regular basis.
>>> Manip Academy 2.0: Calendar and Sign-Ups <<<
>>> All Manip Academy articles <<<
When you create a scene and it has details in the background, it is very important you remember to keep the depth, in this way you will get a more realistic result. The details in the foreground will have more contrast in comparison to the details on the background, then the scene in the background will have less contrast, "a white or blurred appearance".
Look at some examples to better understand what I'm trying to explain:

Manip walkthroughManip Academy #4: Manip Walkthrough
I decided to submit a "tutorial" about the journey through a simple landscape manip. Mainly cause I was myself completely lost when I first started doing manips. Going from only knowing painting to trying photo manipulations seemed easy enough but proved very difficult. So these steps are mostly for beginners.
When creating a manipulation there will be a lot of different steps, some major, some tiny, don't limit yourself and do not be afraid to experiment and try new things. This tutorial is in no way "complete" but it will go through some steps that I myself had trouble with when i first started learning manipulations. There's many different ways to do things, so I encourage you to try new things to find what fits your unique personal workflow.
Step 1. Idea, inspiration, and planning.
This is where the idea for an artwork is born. Perhaps you already have a finished idea in your head or you simply found a very insp
Ps tips #4Having 15 min of peace at home, so today quick tip how to make objects look golden
1. Make a copy of object to new layer, put it into new folder, hide the original. Usually I desaturate it, but it makes no difference to be honest
2. Create new gradient like mine you can see before. I picked colours from photos of gold. Don't forget to save it!
3. Create new adjustment layer "gradient map", use gradient you've made. Now image looks like this:
4. Create new adjusment layer "curves" UNDER the gradient map layer, and enhance contrast. Settings for every image are different!!!
5. Copy both adjustment layers, check reverse in gradient map, group these layers, hide the group under black mask, then make visible some areas that looks better in reverse.

I have a Ph.D. in public health. My work 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.

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.
