WIP - Work In Progress (about Journal)Hello to everybody!Iskander1989 recently came to me with an idea he had for a new project. I love it! So we are sharing the idea with you guys, to see how much interest we can raise about this.What is WIP?This will be a live stream project. Those who choose to join us, will have each have their own live stream channel. We will use this platform;- To show viewers how we create artworks, the creative process.- To host workshops of specific themes to educate viewers.- To allow viewers to ask any questions, and then to be able to show them the answer, rather than tell them.How will it work?We will be using twitch.tv as the platform. Twitch.tv is a live streaming video platform focused on e-sports and video gaming. However, it is not exclusive to gamers. Iskander1989 saw this as a huge oppurtunity for online artists. And it's totally free!Step 1We will be creating a group on d
DA Rockstars #1Hey guys! This is a new series of journals, proudly brought to you by we-HEART-photomanip In these we will be showcasing the 'Rockstars' of our community; The who's who, the movers and shakers, the leaders of the pack. This is a journal that will only be released once a month, and it will feature up to 3 people in the PM community who are really bringing something big to the table.I thought I will start this series of with the 3 people you DEFINITELY need to know. Without these 3 life would be considerably more difficult. So here it goes...:iconkuschelirmel: & :iconkuschelirmel-stock:This lady is the queen of tutorials. If you are a beginner and just started out making photo manipulations, you need to go have a look at kuschelirmel 's tutorials.

Tips for creating dark artTips for creating dark artI have heard many people's opinions about dark art. What defines it? What's it's main features? There is many who think they create dark art, but others who tell them THAT isn't what dark art is. But is that fair? Is it up to us to decide what dark art is OR is it something we need to feel. Something that comes to every human in need and offers a cold a dark reality of comfort. Here are the opinions of some dark artists..."Go beyond the cliché and open your mind. People think creating something dark means you have to stick to cemeteries, goth chicks, and muted tones, which is false! Embrace colour in your dark work. Use your emotions and use your art to explore the darker side of your soul. I have found some of my darkest pieces came from me sitting outside in the sunshine and simply remembering something. Such as how the sun

Dark Photomanip Q and ASo a while ago I asked the community to send me questions they would like to ask us about Dark Photo Manipulations. Here they are!!Question > SoulcolorsArt asks "Do you scare yourself sometimes with the art you make?"Answers > " Actually, no. I'm not a fan of scary movies or horror in general, but I do love suspense. The best dark art leaves the viewer wondering - what next?" - Nolamom3507> "Not in a looong time. But even on the occasions where I did it was more because I was alone in the dark at 4 in the mourning. Everything is scary then. " - AbbeyMarie> " I don't get scare, but I often surprise myself with the final image. " - thefantasim> "Never. But sometimes I scare my relatives - they think I have psychological problems, as "a happy man wouldn't create art like that" "

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.How you can helpEveryone is en
Aeirmid's DD Guidelines v.3 - Sept 2014OverviewDaily Deviations (DDs) are a way for the Community Volunteer team and deviantART Staff members to share art that is outstanding and stands apart from the gallery. We aim to showcase stellar art, and an artist can receive one DD every six months. DDs are not prizes to be won or awards to be given; they are simply daily features. For more information about DDs, be sure to review :faq61:I can accept DD suggestions for the following galleries and only the following galleries:Digital Art > Mixed MediaDigital Art > Drawings and PaintingsSpecial requirements for Mixed MediaHere are my specific guidelines for photomanipulations and mixed media work:All stock and resources must be credited.

12 Years On deviantArt and How To Get DDsI needed to reflect about that matter when I received my 10th Daily Deviation in February and to be honest,it is astonishing how time flies. It feels like it was yesterday when I posted my first work on deviantArt in November 2002.At that time I only regularly posted to Epilogue as well and both were lively communities.The site was greener in its early days, and flat design was hip as well!When I signed up on deviantart as user number 305258 way back in 2002 it was already big and no one knew it would be going to be that huge in 2014.Now user numbers range above the 30 million mark - that´s crazy, for an art-community - I mean.Current events such as the death of the online CG community CGHUB makes me think of how we spend our online time.Whe
Interview #1: InmaCommission for Kerubiel by inmaWelcome to the first issue of Rising-Artists' Interview series! Today, we have an interview with the very talented inma, a mangaka and illustrator from Spain with four Daily Deviations and over 50,000 watchers. Join us to gain a bit of insight and inspiration from inma's lovely works!Tell us a bit about your art and yourself as an artist. How long have you been doing art? What kind of art do you do?I've been drawing ever since I learned how to pick up a pen. My sister liked to draw, so I imitated her. I draw Japanese style only (I'm not very versatile *laughs*).Your profile states that you are a Freelance mangaka and illustrator. What kind of work does that entail?I have pu
Feeling Anxious?Since May is mental health awareness month, I wanted to take this opportunity to address something that I think plagues most, if not all of our daily lives. Anxiety is something that comes in all shapes and forms and effects everyone from school children to professional adults. While many people use medication as a way to control anxiety, it's really not something that should be relied on long-term. The purpose of this article is to introduce you all to some helpful holistic techniques that can help reduce stress on your body and mind and help to safely and naturally minimize a lot of the factors that cause us to feel anxious. I myself have suffered terribly from anxiety and OCD since childhood. I was diagnosed in middle school and found out early on that my body was intolerant of prescription medication. The drugs made me sick and caused side effects that were worse than the illness itself. It was then that I realized I would have to become my own doctor and se

fancyQUACKS Issue no.1: Imaginary Friends and FoesForewordby puddlefisherThe relations between monsters and kids are never anything less than endearing. Unless it involves guts. In that case we’re bound to confront a cold, hard truth that reveals monsters are sometimes far removed from childhood wonderments as seen in Pixar and that checking our closets before bedtime isn’t a bad idea. And yes, these critters exist - so before getting too comfortable; there is probably a room you’ve forgotten to fumigate with the ole monster spray.Alright, it’s time to come clean: stating monsters exist is a slight exaggeration. In fact, the monster spray trick only works on children because they believe in this stuff. But that’s the point: kids believe in this stuff. They have a rapport with monsters and that’s something we couldn’t take away even if we tried. We’ve all been there – either afraid of the dark, of sounds
