Photomanipulation News and Feature - 16 March 2013

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 16, 2013, 7:55 AM

Welcome


Welcome to the March 16th edition of the Photomanipulation News and Feature. There has been a lot of excitement in our community lately, so I hope this newsletter will help clear some things up, spread some really positive news, and get us back on track.

Sit back-- We have a lot to talk about!


The sxc.hu issue


For those of you who missed it, sxc.hu is not allowing their stock to be used in photomanipulation. Therefore, for the purposes of Daily Deviations, I am not going to feature images that use art from that site unless you have written permission or can otherwise document that you have followed the copyright holder's (that means original photographer's) license terms of use. Here was my final journal on the issue. You decide what is right for you and your group.

FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?


Some positive solutions


A lot of people have put together journals documenting other accounts here on dA and some other sites that allow their stock to be used for photomanipulation. I wanted to share their efforts with you because I think they're pretty awesome. Here you go:

:bulletblue: Unrestricted use directory by shelldevil
:bulletblue: Tutorials and stock by FP-Digital-Art
:bulletblue: My stock by tamaraR
:bulletblue: Regarding the use of sxc.hu stock by Manips-Central

Those are the ones I have added to my own collection. I know there are others; if you show them to me, I'll be happy to include them. :)


Gallery Make-over


Community Relations and the Community Volunteer team are making over dA's art galleries! :eager: Our goal is to streamline the submission process so that it is easier for you to know where to submit your art.

Our task is to restructure the Photomanipulation and Mixed Media galleries, and you guys have come up with some really great ideas. You can see what people have come up with and add your own thoughts and opinions here. Your contribution is still welcome!


Upcoming events in our community



Photomanipulation Workshop Series

March 17: Advanced Lighting Workshop at 11 AM PDT (find your time here) in #CRPhotomanipulation :pointr: Led by TheDarkRayne


April date TBA: Composition Workshop with conzpiracy

Please give these deviants some love for being willing to share their time with us!


Rebirth and Renewal Competition

Remember that the official Rebirth and Renewal Contest ends on April 1st at 11:59 PM PDT! That gives you 2 weeks to submit your entries to CRPhotomanipulation!! :eager:


Remake that Manip challenge

Coming in April or May, you will have a chance to remake a classic photomanipulation and add your own flair!


Photomanipulation Gallery War

Date not set yet, but we're looking at starting in April or May. This will be a duel between the galleries of phomanipuation-- for example, Dark versus Emotional, Fantasy versus Macabre... to see which galleries come out on top! It will be a team competition and will likely span a few months.

If you haven't joined CRPhotomanipulation yet, now is the time to join so you can keep abreast of these activities and more!


Other contests



:bulletblue: Protect our Nature contest
:bulletblue: Lost in Another World contest
:bulletblue: Sounds of Madness contest
:bulletblue: Queen of Darkness contest
:bulletblue: Fallen Angels / The Other Side of a Queen dual contest

#Digitalists


There is a new "official unofficial" home for digital art on dA, and that includes photomanipulation! Digitalists is run by your friendly digital art CVs (including yours truly), and anyone can join! Come join us today!

Also, we are looking for contributors who can help submit really fantastic art to the galleries, assist with organizing events, and share ideas! Find out more here. If you are interested in helping and love digital art, we'd love to hear from you.


CR Community Projects


I have recently taken on the position of CV for Community Projects in addition to Photomanipulation. I have a really great team, without whom I could never do both. We will be officially opening our doors soon, but if you're super eager and want to get involved now, come join us at CRCommunityProjects!


#In-Obscuro


In-Obscuro is a new group dedicated to bringing dark, horror, and macabre photomanipulation back to the forefront of dA's attention. Anyone is welcome to join, but only art that is truly dark (in concept and/or in presentation) will be accepted.


Other news


Some other great stuff that I have collected recently:

:bulletblue: Video tutorial on surreal photomanipulation
:bulletblue: "Requiem" art book
:bulletblue: Dark Eyes tutorial
:bulletblue: Pimps and Whoas

Awesome that you done an 'under 100' feature, that's always a good look 8-)

Just a little headsup, the workshop I'll be doing is 'compositing' - dealing with hair, pen tool, layer masks etc :)
