Photomanipulation News November 25, 2012*Thanks to `StarsColdNight for her significant contribution in helping with this newsletter! Thanks also to the many others who helped gather the news!
Welcome, and update!
Welcome to your bigger, better photomanipulation newsletter. We are pleased to bring you up-to-date information about things that are going on in the community. It's been a busy few weeks, and we have a lot to share with you!
Direct link requirements on DDs
I spoke with $fourteenthstar and $Moonbeam13, and we decided that you should no longer have to put direct links to stock pictures in order to get a DD. So, you no longer need to direct link your stock pictures for DD purposes. (You DO still need to credit stock, though!) However, many groups still require those direct links for submissions, and that decision is entirely up to the group administrators. We hope this change will help make suggesting and posting DDs easier.
Photomanip HappeningsHey all,
This is sort-of a spur-of-the moment journal to tell you about some things that are going on around the photomanip community. I will write up the news as soon as I get the time to pull everything together, but there are some things you will want to know about in the interim.
Where is our CV?
I'm here, just working on several things at once. I have to split time between dA and school (for those of you who don't know, I'm halfway through a Ph.D. program). My dA attention is divided between Photomanipulation month in %projecteducate and Dante's Inferno in %Halloween-HQ. I've really appreciated your DD suggestions.
As a CV, I have gotten to know a lot of people and had an opportunity to appreciate their art, and they continually blow me away! But, there are many other artists out there who I would very much like to know as well. The hard part is finding them.
I would thus encourage everyo
Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the Planets
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.
Welcome to the Darkness.Welcome, all, to %In-Obscuro. We've been dying to meet you.
The goals of our group include:
Bringing more attention to dark, macabre, and horror-themed photomanipulation
Educating this community about proper stock usage and crediting
Serving as a hub for all things dark related to photomanipulation.
You know the basics of how to submit, right? We only take photomanipulations, and only if they are reasonable quality. You must credit your stock, and stock must be legitimate. Here are some pointers:
You DO NOT need direct links to the stock images you used, but that is helpful.
If you are getting your stock from somewhere off of deviantART (a pay-for stock site, for example), please read the license agreement before using it. This will tell you how that art can (and cannot) be used.
If you are using premade backgrounds, DO check that the creator of the premade background is allowed to create the
REMINDER - January ChallengeHello, ~Arts-and-Health!!
Welcome to your January Challenge!
Your theme for this month is:
Those who came before me
"Those who came before me" refers to mentors, elders, leaders, and others who walked our path before we did and led the way. Perhaps they survived their journeys; perhaps they did not. Who has touched your life and inspired you to take it day by day? Show or tell us a story of those who have helped you cope with your condition or those who have done so admirably before you did. Who inspires you? (If you do not have a health condition, you can show or write about someone who dealt with illness gracefully).
In your artist's comments, please make it clear that you have created your piece for our group. (If we can't tell that it is relevant to coping, we will not accept your piece into the Challenge.) Also, it should be a new deviation (made on or after January 1, 2013).
All media are accepted. Photomanipulations must use LEGITIMATE STOCK an

Goodbye and Hello!
I'd like to start my first Vector CR update of my new term by thanking `DomiSM for the fantastic term and time she's given to the vector galleries. She's an asset to the community, not just the vector community. Please drop by her page and give her a scalable hug, because she's simply fabulous!
I'm back as your Vector Community Volunteer! I'm here as a bridge between you and the paid staff should you want someone to pass on a message, suggestions or concerns. I'll be getting more involved in the vector community and I also post those little things called Daily Deviations... but we'll get onto that one later. So if you've got any ques

^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
