Getting sick of my journals yet? Ha! There's more to come! But this time I'm going to feature some of the groups *da-joint-stock belongs to, as well as a new group you should really check out!!
So here goes!!
This is by far the best competition-specfic group I have ever come across during my sort stay here on DA. Headed by =thefantasim, this group has been leader in the realm of photomanipulation! With Bi-weekly Challenges and Monthly Contests, #ManipulateThis has something for everyone! With 4 skill levels to accommodate everyone from new artists to professional photomanipulators, everyone can have a shot at winning! But winning isn't the only prupose at #ManipulateThis - the group was created as a learning environment for people to practise and improve as a manipulator and as an artist!
Some examples of entries to the current challenge - "De-Cliche and Surreal It Challenge" where deviants choose use 1 of 6 required stock models to create a manip that de-cliches (or go against the comment uses) of that stock image. You can find the whole story and challenge requirements here: [link]
Ever feel like you avatar needs a little sprucing up? ~FreeAvatarProject is the place to be! Run by `FantasyStock, The Free Avatar Project was designed to provide deviants with a wide selection of free avatars by a variety of designers! As part of ~FreeAvatarProject I'm happy to create custom avatars by request - and for prizes in Contests and such, although for them I do something extra special ^^
Here are some examples of the avatars I've created for ~FreeAvatarProject and prizes...
- Simple Avatars -
- Animated Avatars -
- Special Prize Avatars Based on Actual Artworks -
And now, introducing the newest stock group on DA!!
Ahh just look at that amazing avatar! So simple and clean! ...ya... I haven't gotten around to making an avatar for us yet, but it is on my to-do list Anyways... #Joint-Stock is devoted purely to stock images, tutorials and free stuff!! The idea behind the group is to collect and organize as much stock as possible - making it easier to find and reference (which is always a nice thing )
At the moment there isn't really much in it, but if you have stock, we want it!! I've created a load of folders to make organizing and finding images easier, and I have no problem making a new one if you find I've missed something! So come on over and visit the newest pile of stock ...
Check it out!!
