3 Photomanipulators you really should be watchingHi everyone,
I have an Under 100 feature and a Composition feature coming up shortly, but I wanted to focus on really recognizing some people who have tremendous skills but who you may not yet watch. They deserve to be recognized as some of the best photomanipulators in our community because of the hard work they put into their gorgeous creations. Please take a moment to watch them if you don't already, and make sure you provide some nice comments on their work.

Kim is probably the most humble person I've met while on deviantART, yet she is incredibly talented. Her work has evolved to focus on the dark side of fantasy, where creativity meets our darkest nightmares. You can't look away! A walk through one of her photomanipulations will leave you caught up on the scene, wondering what is coming next. With excellent use of dark, muted tones and spellbinding stock choices, Kim's gallery is definitely worth a look!
Photomanipulation: Weekend DelightsI wanted to share a few gorgeous photomanipulations I've found in my Message Center this weekend! These are some personal favorites that I hope you will enjoy.

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
10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our PhotomanipsOn the "decline" of quality in the photomanipulation gallery
I've seen a lot of polls, journals, etc. recently about the quality of the photomanipulation gallery and fears that it has declined. I have intentionally not commented, but I will address the issue here. I think our beloved community is going through a "learning phase" where we are rediscovering ourselves and our art. We have a lot-- a LOT-- of new people, and I want to wish them a warm welcome because they are critical to our vitality as a community..
In turn, a lot of our older, more experienced artists have moved on, frequently owing to time constraints due to having more commissions and freelance work.
So, saying our quality has declined is really not fair. Rather, we are in a cycle of change that happens every couple of years within our community.
It is perhaps true that we have reached a collective slump in creativity. Like inspires like, and I see the same thing over and

Inspire Inner Fires - Issue 5Hi friends!
Most of the time when I write up the IIF Issues I have a theme in mind. For instance, in my last issue I featured all dark art from across the digital community. However, as I begun to think of ideas for this issue I kept coming back to my community of manipulators and decided to only focus on them for this issue. Thus, this issue has no specific theme in mind and is simply dedicated to my fellow manipulators for all the effort we put into our art and into our community. Please help me celebrate these artists by viewing their works and faving the one's you love; if you really love these artists I recommend watching their accounts.

Dark Art EvolutionDARK ART EVOLUTION
This article is about development of dark art as artistic style and changes in this style during last 10 years. To show how far we've come, and to challenge artists to keep experimenting.
First deviations submitted to dark category, really few per month, artworks evidently related to gothic subculture, pale-coloured, characteristic for that period equal sharpness of foreground an background.
Very close to the previous period, also mostly pale-coloured art that has obvious gothic elements in it, but with much better blending, painted elements start to appear.
Digital tablets became more popular during this time, which led to an increase in experimenting with p

***Back Into Hospital - Talented Ones Feature***ntSO HOSPITAL LOOMS
I have been unwell for sometime now, and it's got to the stage where I am struggling to cope , so I wont be around as much as normal next week my dear friends, as I go into hospital (18th and surgery on the 19th) for major surgery. There is quite large risk involved, and without wanting to draw attention, or be dramatic, should anything go wrong, I wanted to tell all my dear friends, my watchers and supporters, just in case I dont get another chance, that I really do think the world of you all. You all gave me a purpose, and I will always love you for that. Since my return to DA, I have met some beautiful people, have made some wonderful friends, friends for life, and learned so much. Not just about art, but about life as well. For those who I fell out with, there are no hard feelings from me, I still love you anyway and to those that I knowingly or unknowingly offended, im so sorry, and hope you can all find it in your hea
2014 and the missionHello my dearies. I hope everybody had a great holiday time. Happy new years, may this be a great year for all of us!!!
My Mission This Year
I have always had a problem with keeping my focus on one thing for more than a few days. I always start a project with a lot of enthusiasm, but I hardly ever finish. So this year I have decided to set myself a theme and a year plan, and stick to it. And you all are going to be my motivation for keeping strong. So please, I need my fans now more than ever!!!
The theme this year is TAROT. I started on my own tarot deck a couple of years ago, but I didn't have the skill I need to pull through with it then. I feel confident in my skill at this stage.
I will be posting only ONE manip per month with the exception of my first manip (it will be my 2014 ID). I feel that when I do like one each week, I loose impact. There are 22 cards in the major arcana, so I won't finish the entire d
