Talk to us!Hey guys,
It's been a long time since we've had a chat as a photomanipulation community. Emerald-Depths and I would like to know how things are going for you. What's new? What would you like to see more from us? What kinds of projects are you interested in seeing? What is going well? What needs to be improved?
Most of all, why are things so quiet??
I know a lot of us are super busy, but I think what we all have in common is that we love our photomanipulation community and want to see it grow. We all need to work together to make that happen, but how? What can we do to save our community?
Your honest thoughts and opinions are welcome. We will also have a chat to discuss some of the issues you raise.

The WOW Effect: Why it rocks!Hi everyone,
So . . . for our "The Wow Effect" month here at we-HEART-photomanip, I wanted to show some of my favorite photomanipulations of all time and explain why they are so amazing to me. Let's get started!
I'm starting with something a little bit older, but it is my favorite piece on deviantART. Foxfires has captured a very precious moment for the main character. See how the light seems to make her glow, illuminating and softening her expression, lifting her hair, giving her dimension? The light around the model is hard but not overpowering, and the lamps are clearly lit without being overdone. The surroundings, while bright and colorful, are less bright and colorful, and the shape of the wagon and the lines in the ladder draw the viewer's eye up to the model. Also, did you notice the fox?
I very much like the composition of this image; the viewer's eye is drawn to the

Working through negativity from other peopleThe sudden attack of negativity
I will write another article about energy vampires, or the people in our lives who are constantly negative. In today's article, I am going to address the specific case where you're feeling like someone is throwing negative energy at you out of the blue.
We've all had it happen to us: We're going along through our lives, feeling happy, having a good self-esteem day, when WHAM! someone says or does something that leaves us reeling. Maybe they've criticized your art in an unwanted way, or maybe they have done something to hurt or offend you personally, as an individual.
Don't let it spiral you into negativity and feelings of worthlessness. Don't give someone else the power to make you want to leave dA or quit your job. Here are some things you can think about when you feel like you're being attacked.
Consider the circumstances.
When someone throws negativity your way, it is almost always more about t

Mary Cassatt"In art, what we want is the certainty that one spark of original genius shall not be extinguished."
Portrait of the Artist c. 1878
Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
In 1866, Mary finally got the opportunity to study abroad, but even then the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts would not accept female students. Cassatt was also let down by the Salon and the conservatism of the Paris art world in general. After spending time studying and refining her techniques throughout the rest of Europe, Cassatt returned to Paris once aga
FAQ: Where do I submit book covers?Hiya!
I've seen a few people lately asking where they should submit book covers when they are uploading them to dA. First, they should NOT be submitted to Digital Art > Photomanipulation unless they are simply the image (e.g. they do not have an author, title, etc.).
So, where do they go if they are actually book layouts (with author and title)?
You can submit them here: Designs & Interfaces > Editorial Design.
I hope that helps.
