Best of... weekly photomanip features #52
FrozenStarRo and her friend Lareth were thinking of making a weekly photomanipulation features :) But they needed someone else with a good observing eye to help us pick the best manips so they asked for their friends' SylwiaS and Iardacil to help them :) The result can be found below here.
Note: We do not picks ourselves or our friends...We just picks the works that actually show something interesting and qualify as good art upon technique and eye candy ;P
Note to the artists whose works are featured: Do not thank me for picking you or watch me only because I posted this article! I am only picking 5 of 20 works so I may not be the one who picked yours. If you wanna show your appreciation just thank us here and not on my page cause I'm not alone in this and don't want to take credit for it only because I'm the one submitting the news article.

Twenty Under Forty -- vol.4
Twenty Under Forty is a news article that features 20 deviations in each issue that have less than 40 faves at the time of writing the article.
I mostly come across these by browsing dA or through my watch list, so it reflects my own browsing habits and tastes. However, it is not limited to any genre of art, so if you find something you'd like to see featured here, note me (don't comment on the article, I might not see it!) with the link(s)! While I have nothing against you suggesting yourselves, I'd love to see you try to suggest someone else's work as well.

The Future Stars of Photomanipulation #11
After the announcement that The-Undiscovered project has been closed, Iardacil, who was a staff member there, felt that there is now big gap for featuring up and coming future artists. So, to try to fill that gap a little, she asked her dear and talented friend Behana to help her and the result they produced this news article.
The aim of this article is to give exposure for promising, talented and outstanding photomanipulators, who have had little or no exposure so far. These deviants are chosen for their skill, works, originality and variety.
Maybe these fortnightly features combined with our words of encouragement will help some new photomanipulators catch some of the limelight, but also to give audience’s here some idea that in the world of photomanipulations there are no borders and the possibilities are endless. The only limit is your imagination.
There are four categories, all based on how many pageviews the deviant has. Under 100, Under 1 000, Under 5 000, Un

First time in a while creating some photomanips. Thought I'd try out something different for me and start getting some techniques back and redevelop after some time away.

It's been a loooong time doing this type of art and so I am looking to shake the rust off. Just haven't had time and been doing more gig posters lately. Will be posting more art from time to time.

Get Back To Work!

I know I have been absent for most of the past few years. Been dealing with major blows in personal life which has sort of sapped the energy and creative juices out of me. Between illnesses (I am still dealing with), losing my mom and brother in law and dealt with another blow late last year which lead me to really put more focus on taking care of my family. I just could never seem to get back into that creative mode for long stretches at a time anymore.  I have been fortunate though to be able to do a few side jobs in gig posters or logos. The poster thing is a radical departure for me and I am still figuring out what my style and workflow for those will be. It is a fun thing to do, that's for sure. But I miss creating the imagery I like to create. I just haven't had the time.

But I am getting there. I have been following some of our more respected artists that I watch grow into fantastic artists and are all well on their way to great things! I am very proud of them and they have inspired me lately. I have got the itch again. I have been dabbling, though nothing solid to show. Just practice runs. I have some new ideas to get out there soon. I do have a new CD project that is both a commercial endeavour and personal project as it may be the thing to get me going again. ;)

My new work may be going back to my older style and I look forward to the challenges I lay down for myself. Holidays are approaching so new stuff will most likely be in January unless I hunker down and get something done before then. :)

See you all soon! :)
