DDs I Have Given

Flash Player 8 is required to view SitBack. Get the latest version of Flash Player.


I'm the Photomanipulation CV, along with Emerald-Depths!

Here are my basic rules:

  • I only take Digital Art > Photomanipulation suggestions and some Mixed Media suggestions (if they involve photographs being manipulated). I cannot feature anything else. For general digital art suggestions, please direct the note to Thiefoworld.
  • 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 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.

Manip Academy

Tue Jul 22, 2014, 11:08 AM by Aeirmid:iconaeirmid:


Introducing a new project!

Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.

Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.

This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

How you can help

Everyone is encouraged to get involved with sharing knowledge. It would be great if you could write a journal over at CRPhotomanipulation and/or at we-HEART-photomanip, but it's fine just to send us a tip; we'll write it up for you. The idea is not to have people writing tutorials all the time, but rather to share different little tips and tricks that help along the way. It can be something as simple as showing how a candle would reflect light on the wall, or it can be something more difficult like using a scatter brush or creating a glow effect. You could tell a big secret, or you could just tell a little tip. You can even just say how you did one particular effect in one of your photomanipulations.

Photomanipulation Update: July 2014

Sun Jul 20, 2014, 8:37 AM by Aeirmid:iconaeirmid:


Hello out there!

How is everyone? We wanted to give you all an update on some exciting things that are happening in our community. As always, if you have anything to add, please note Aeirmid or Emerald-Depths.

Congratulations are in order!

We wanted to take a moment to recognize the fact that a member of our community, Cinnamoncandy, has been awarded senior status! YAY! Congratulations! This is an honor bestowed on very few people here on DeviantArt, and we are really excited for her. Please take a moment to congratulate her! Leave some love on her profile page or drop her a note. Let her know we are here to celebrate with her. :heart:

Project Educate feature

Project Educate (projecteducate) is gearing up for a gallery week in August, where we'll be featuring art from all of the galleries on the site. We will have two journals dedicated to photomanipulation on Sunday, August 17th. Be sure to tune in to projecteducate to check them out!

Manip Academy

I've been reaching as many people as I can about the Manip Academy project. This is a new project that will be a collaboration between we-HEART-photomanip and CRPhotomanipulation. We are modeling it after Community Relations' Project Educate, except that it will be dedicated solely to photomanipulation. Twice a week, we will be posting educational articles with brief tips and tricks from experienced photomanipulators. Be on the lookout for a kickoff blog (with a calendar) soon! And also, if you want to share a tip or trick, please note CRPhotomanipulation and let us know.


I know I've been mentioning it a lot lately, but please join and/or watch CRPhotomanipulation. It is the "unofficial official group" for photomanipulation on DA (meaning it is run by volunteers, not by DA itself). I've invited as many people as I can get my paws on, and I will continue to do so. But you don't need an invitation. Anyone can join. I hope you will join us so you can keep an eye on the educational efforts, the artwork of new and underexposed deviants, the best artwork our gallery has to offer, and official contests.

Tournament update

The fourth (and final) round of the Intermediate Photomanipulation Tournament kicked off on July 19th. We are super excited for our finalists: mippieArt, peroline, SoulcolorsArt, annemaria48, and nova63. They have some really difficult tasks ahead of them, and we can't wait to see what they come up with!! You can read about their themes here.

Meanwhile, the Advanced Photomanipulation Tournament wrapped up last week. Please congratulate kimsol on her victory, which came with this deviation:

Temptation Past by kimsol

We are extremely excited for her; this is a fantastic piece of work!!

Current contests

These are the contests that we are aware of. If you know of more that are currently underway or about to kick off, please let me know. These contests must allow photomanipulations.

:bulletblue: The Brothers Grimm meet Tim Burton (Dark digital contest)
:bulletblue: Game of Thrones contest
:bulletblue: Creative Minds challenge
:bulletblue: Summer, Sun, and Fun challenge

DA turns 14 on August 7th

Did you know that Fella has birthdays, too? :XD: DeviantArt will turn 14 on Thursday, August 7th. There will be lots of fun and games and chances to win stuff. Stay tuned and get involved; it would be great to have some representation from the photomanipulation gallery in the festivities. :D

Other interesting things on DA

:bulletgreen: Project Vision Art
:bulletgreen: Art for a Cause

New and underappreciated artist feature

Each of these gorgeous photomanipulations has 20 or fewer +faves. Can we get them to 50 at least? Enjoy!

Artist | Digital Art
United States
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.
