Digital Spotlight

Sat Jan 24, 2015, 5:02 PM
:icondigitalspotlight:

New group dedicated to bringing exposure to the underexposed! 

It is a quality controlled group, accepting only high level intermediate to advanced work, so you know it won't be flooding your inbox!

Don't think your work is quite at that level yet? No worries! You are still welcomed to submit to our favorites folder!

So whether you need some exposure, or are looking for a steady flow of kick ass digital art this is the place for you! 

:icondigitalspotlight:

Not just the models. 

Often times I will see DD suggestions with credits, but only the model image is credited. That is not enough. 

If the other resources are you own and or purchased you can simply say that in the description. Or else the piece will be ineligible for a DD.  

Otherwise respect the DA stock artists and give credit where credit is due. They are invaluable and the PM community would not be nearly as strong without them.

Don't believe me? Go take a look at the prices on premium stock sites, now go look at the variety on other free stock sites. Then come back to DA and be grateful.

This is just a quick reminder. Thanks for all the DD suggestions so far! Keep them coming!

New Years Resolutions!

Mon Dec 29, 2014, 5:33 PM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


Some people love them others are sick of them, but I certainly understand the appeal of starting something new right at the beginning of the year. It just FEELS right. Like waiting till monday to start that diet you 100% are actually going to start this time, because no one want's to start on a Wednesday right?

Mine

I have a few! They aren't really linked to the new year, but they are things I'd like to continue to work towards and achieve!
  1. Get my license. I'm 23 and still can't drive. I have a car and a learners permit, and by this time next year I will have finally joined the rest of the world in driving bliss. Or die trying.
  2. Be a part-time freelancer. Making 100% of my living off of freelance work seems to hefty a goal. If I can just make a good majority doing freelance I will be happy! For now. 
  3. Date! Pretty boys can start sending in their applications early! 

And then my big goal I'd like to accomplish is....move to Maine! Main has become my promised land to me. I have never not lived amongst the cornfields of Illinois, and I am sick of it and I'm ready to head east.  I don't know anyone there, I have never visited there, and I have no
real security there. I just need to give it a shot. 

I have other smaller ones too. I'd like to get into jogging once it gets warmer. I want to send my parents on a week vacation. Other small lifestyle changes that have to do with my anxiety. All that good stuff!

Yours 

What about you? What are you hoping to tackle in the new year? How was 2014 for you? Do you have the weir hatred of odd numbered years that I constantly hear about?

  Art Challenge !Recently I received a lot of points from one of my friends who were leaving dA for good, and had decided to distribute his points out to his friends. Since I don't have anything special to use these on, I decided to start an Art Challenge for everyone who'd be interested. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time, and so I'm very excited to have gotten this chance. I imagine this will be something that will happen repeatedly, if time and point-economics allow it!
:excited: 
Let's get started
Since this is my first contest ever I've decided to go with a simple theme: a thing you like. Choose something that inspires you and never fails to make you happy, if only for a little while; it's the small things in life. This could be anything; a certain kind of weather, a person, your favorite animal, deviantART - it's a very vast theme, so there's lots of sp

If You Could DD: The Feature!

Sun Dec 21, 2014, 12:03 AM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


cleaner


This is technically up a day early! 

Here are the features of the deviations you would choose if you could DD for the Community Feature Project: If I Could DD! Thank you to everyone who participated in the PM community, there were so many! 31 features to be exact! And with around 10 devintationes per feature (at the very least), that ends up being well over 300 pieces of art featured by our community! 

If you did one, but do not see it here, please link me to it!

Community Feature Project: If I could DD...This December, Community Relations has organized a wonderful project to give us the opportunity to share works that we would choose for Daily Deviations if we could!
How does this feature work?
    Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery.
    (i.e. Stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery. Photomanipulators would feature manips, etc.) When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the comments area. (i.e. Digital Artist's (Drawings & Paintings, Mixed Media) will need to link to diphylla or Aeirmid's journal.
After all of the features have been linked to your Community Volunteer's journal, they  will then publish a master journal feature of all the community features.
If You want to create journal for photomanipulations, later You should post it below
  Community Feature Project: If I Could DD...Hey there! In my newswire I found an interesting project and I want to take part in it
 I already was a large gallery of my work and for the whole year, I am a user DA, I have not received any DD. :(
I wrote to the right people, but it took six months and nothing. My pictures are beautiful and I put a lot of effort for them. I love them all! It is good that there is such a project where unrecognized artists can show their work! Here is a list of my work, which, in my opinion, should get DD but never got.

  If I could DD - featureMy small contribution for the community project "If I could DD". I'm taking the opportunity to collect some nice features without the stress that comes with the CV position. :D

My category of choice is (unsurprisingly) Photo-Manipulation (although I was considering Space Art and Scifi for a moment).
Since I am not a real CV I took the liberty to ignore the lack of stock credits or description in some of the deviations, and some others already have a lot of favorits, but so what. :shrug: Other than that they should all be eligible (I think). Enjoy the features!

  If I Could DD - what would I choose?There is currently running a Community Project through dA and I thought it would be awesome participate in it. My chosen gallery category is photomanipulation (obviously) because as I see, this category  is less represented among other categories and this one is in I'm doing my little stuff (a little bit selfish, huh?).

I tried to choose those artist's works who haven't gotten a DD in the previous 6 months but gosh, it's so hard and maybe in some cases I failed this rule. All respect for the CVs!
Here are the works I prefer because I can imagine a story behind them, or I have feelings and thought about them, or they are just simply beautiful and good to see them:

  If I could give a DD
If I could give a DD
I tried to do a list of works that I felt should receive a DD, but after days of doing it, I couldn’t go through with it. I watch 1200 Deviants and I fave, comment, and reply to all of their works. To say that I have an enormous faves folder, would be a vast understatement. I could not, in good conscience, pick only a few, for to do so, my feature would end up being too large and probably broken up into about 100 different features.
I watch some amazing artists, their works are just incredible, gorgeous, creative, original, and downright beautiful. There is no possible way that I can pick only a few out of all of them.
So instead of picking a select few, I narrowed it down to just 1. I picked just 1, for one reason, emotion. All of my watchers deserve to have DD’s. Regardless if they are beginner artists, or the advanced professional, their emotions, feelings, creativity, originality, and their hard work should all be deserving of DD

  Community Feature Project: If I could DD...Have you ever wished that you could pick a Daily Deviation Feature?
I'm sure we've all seen an amazing piece of art or stock that we wished could have a bit more exposure. Well, this is your chance! This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of images that you would feature as a Daily Deviation if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!
The Game Plan
Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery (i.e. stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery, photomanipulators would feature manips, etc). Try to stick with one gallery per journal - nothing stops you from doing multiple journals with different galleries!
When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the co

Hey guys!

I want to do a feature of any active photomanipulation/mixed media contest that are currently going on on DA. They simply have to allow those mediums, they don't have to be exclusive! 

Do you know of a contest that is still currently running until at least the 31st? Post them down below! 

Also keep in mind both :iconwe-heart-photomanip: and :iconcrphotomanipulation: are always looking to bring more exposure to your contest! So be sure to note them anytime you are running a contest so we can help pimp it out!

Have you ever wished that you could pick a Daily Deviation Feature? I'm sure we've all seen an amazing piece of art or stock that we wished could have a bit more exposure. Well, this is your chance! This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of images that you would feature as a Daily Deviation if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!

Think: "What Daily Deviations would I choose if I were to become a CV today?"

The Game Plan

Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery.
(i.e. Stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery. Photo Manipulators would feature manips, etc.) Choose one gallery you would most want to be CV of!

When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the comments area.
(i.e. Photo Manipulators will link to this journal. Stock providers will link to CelticStrm-Stock's journal.)

After all of the features have been linked to your Community Volunteer's journal, we will publish a master journal feature of all the community features.

The Dates and Times


Start Date: December 01, 2014

End Date: December 21, 2014   (All features must be linked to your gallery CV's journal by this date.)

CV Feature Dates: December 22 - 31, 2014


We can't wait to see the fantastic art that you find and feature! If you are not sure who your Gallery Community Volunteers are, please refer to this list:

Holidays: Comforting or Stressful?

Wed Nov 26, 2014, 12:53 AM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


Happy holidays my fellow neurotics! 

With the U.S. Thanksgiving on the 27th, and the winter holidays just around the corner, I am curious to know how you handle the holidays? It's well known that for some the holiday season is a happy time they look forward to every year, for others it can be rough and stressful or even sad, and then for some it goes by like any other month.

So how about you, what are your plans? How do you feel this time a year? Whether you spend the holidays by yourself or with family/friends, do you have any traditions? Share your story!

Quick Note Concerning DDs

Sun Nov 16, 2014, 2:19 AM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


cleaner


I want to reassure everyone that I read and look into 100% of the DDs I receive. I even make sure to take a quick browse through the one suggested's gallery. 

I however only reply to the DD's that have been accepted strictly due to lack of time. All DD suggestions are also kept for future consideration. So something suggested  today could end up being accepted a month from now. No suggestions are ever ignored or deleted. 

I have been paranoid about this lately, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew!

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, keep them coming. You can never send too many!

Anxiety: Biggest Accomplishment

Mon Nov 10, 2014, 4:21 PM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


Quick Share

Whether your anxiety is  severe or mild, anxiety is still a bitch and has probably limited you at one or more times in your life. So I want to know some of the times you have overcome your anxiety or accomplished something that normally would be a problem because of your anxiety! 

No accomplishment is too small! It was once an accomplishment for me to leave my house. :shifty: Hearing success stories is incredibly important. You never know who you might inspire/give hope to with your story!

...Facebook.

Wed Nov 5, 2014, 3:13 AM
I've ditched my facebook "fan/business" page (because they are garbage, gross, and pointless). I finally got around to deleting it. 

I moved everything over to my "personal" account

I post WIPs, art, nerdy stuff I like, and say dumb things that make me (but no one else) laugh. It's a gay 'ol time. 

So come join me there and be my BFF!

Or don't. I don't care.

I Should Say Something

So I am extremely excited to be the new photomanipulation CV! Hopefully I can do as good of a job as the kick ass PM CVs of the past, or at the very least get by without destroying everything. :XD:

I have a sincere intense passion for the art of photomanipulation, and see it as a very undervalued and underappreciated medium with mounds of untapped potential! As a community I want us to tap into that potential. 

What I will Be Focusing On

  • Education 
  • Exploration, Creativity, and Originality
  • Promoting the Act of Both Giving and Receiving Critiques
I am a big on growth and stepping out of your comfort zone. I would like to help encourage the photomanipulation community to do just that.

Whether it be articles, contest or features, it's a good bet it will be based on one of the above. 

My DD Guidelines 

They are very simple!
  • All stock must be credited. 
  • Mustn't of had a DD within the last six months, as with all DDs.
  • The art must be clearly presented. So art with overly large and distracting watermarks that hide the majority of the piece, or that are simply too small to see any real detail won't be considered.
  • I only take photomanipulation suggestiones, and some mixed media suggestions.

So get to sending them! I am excited to feature the PM's galleries best work! 

Thank You!

Thank you for all the "welcomes" so far! I will get to replying to everything asap.
I am sure I have more to say that I am forgetting, but this should do for now. :dummy:
Again I am super excited! :eager:

Anxiety: We Have it. It sucks.

Sun Oct 5, 2014, 9:05 PM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


So for the first journal I figured it would be appropriate for it to be an introductory journal. Makes sense right? Right.  

The Admin's Experience

:iconabbeymarie:
I'm Abbey, I'm 23. I am incredibly strange and off beat. I love dumb internet shit and video games. I am basically incapable of emotions, but I am also exceptionally light hearted. I'm the embodiment of anxiety, and always have been.

As a kid it always felt like everyone was doing a dance I never learned the steps to. The dance of "social interaction". As an adult ....I still feel that way, which I never thought would be the case. I always thought that one day I would wake up and I wouldn't be afraid anymore. Kids are dumb like that.

At my worst, because that's always the most interesting, I was 21 and couldn't leave my house. I had become (even more) distant with my family, and anyone I knew back in highschool were long gone. And I obviously couldn't meet new people because I couldn't even manage to leave my house. My main gig was paranoia. (It felt like) Everyone was watching me, whispering about me, judging me. Wondering what was wrong with me. (....Goddamn my ego is huge). I felt like I didn't have the right to do anything, or be anywhere. Like I didn't have the right to exist, and so I tried my best not to...and succeeded. 

I am 23, have no job, no driver license, no in person friends, and live I in a small town in a small house with my parents. That is what I really am. That is what I try and hide. And that is what I am currently trying, for the first time, to fix. 

I created this group for genuine reasons, one being a sincere caring for people in similar situations, and the second being the completely selfish reason that I think it will help me get better personally. But if I can help other people while helping myself then there is no harm in that selfishness.   ....Hopefully :stare: 


:icongejda:
Hi! My name is Marta. I'm Polish, I create photo-manipulations and paint a bit – though still not too well. I play flute and I'm an avid fantasy fan. I also have social anxiety.

I've been battling it for what seems like forever – I'm told that in kindergarten I had been a very happy and open kid, but it might as well be a myth by now – I'm twenty at the moment and even though I have what I think is a not so bad control over my affliction, there were a few years when it pretty much ruled my life. I used to get pretty frequent panic attacks, and there was no telling what might trigger them – crowds, someone standing too close, talking, even being in the same room as people I knew didn't particularly like me. To some, these things may seem trivial – I can't even begin to count the number of times I've heard: „Get over yourself” or variations of it - but for me they were absolutely terrifying. I was able to mostly learn how to control this, but before that, I spent several years on individual schooling and in therapy.

Why am I here? Because I think that sharing experiences is a great thing. Because I know how having to make a simple phone call can make your hands shake for no apparent reason. Because the: „Hey, it’s not just me!” moments are always precious, and can make you feel a tiny little bit less alone.


:iconromyinneverland:
I've been living with an anxiety disorder for as long as I can remember. Since I was a little girl I never had the courage to say anything to strangers, I've always been extremely shy and scared of things "normal" people weren't afraid of. The two things I was most afraid of were people and tests, which came together at school. Because of that I skipped a lot of school, my parents thought that I had a serious illness many times.

4 years ago, they sent me to a psychologist, since they realised there was at least something wrong with my self esteem. From there on it only became worse. For example, I fell into a serious depression. I started self harming, which left me with scars for life. It felt like that was the only thing keeping the anxiety in control. My mom found out, the only thing she did was cry. Since then I went to a more intensive psychologist and they found out I had a depression and an anxiety disorder, which I got medicine for.

It wasn't over though, my depression got worse, I didn't know what to do anymore, I was too scared to normally leave the house and I didn't have anything left to live for, the only thing I did was lay in bed all day. I tried to commit suicide, got into the hospital and almost died. I don't know how, but seeing the people I loved cry so much about me, kind of switched a button and made me want to get better. Since then I seriously tried to overcome my depression and tried to stop self harming, which I succeeded in after falling back into it a lot of times.

But my anxiety was something I had to learn to live with, since it is something which will never go away. I didn't go to school or get out of the house at all. When they wanted me to go to a mental-like hospital, I realised something had to change, and that I didn't have a choice anymore.
Right now, I'm going to school again and I even get out of the house to walk the dog for example, or to go to the mall for some small stuff I need to have. What helped me? Acting. Internet was my best friend, and I found some things about comedians with social anxiety, who acted to overcome theirs and function normally. I tried the same. It was a lot of practice, and I mean a lot, but eventually it did work for me. I basically act all day, have a big mouth and act like I don't care, so that I can do everything I have to do.

There was also one other thing that helped me; Getting a dog. My dog is a lot like me, he used to be abused and is scared of everything and everyone. Just like me he has visible and hidden scars. He helped me a lot with going outside again, just a huge help. Walking with a dog is already way less scary than walking completely alone. The thing that my dog is a big Staffordshire Bullterrier also helped, since if something happens, you have a dog with you who can protect you. That made me feel a lot more safe.
That is my story.


:iconsnowinhades:
Hi everyone, my name is Terri and I'm just one of the admins for this group. Sorry for being late in introducing myself, anxiety causes me to experience brain-freeze!

Firstly, some positive things about myself.  I'm an Australian.  I LOVE animals.  I live with my beautiful Staffy Zara and three cats called Hope, Clayton and Friday.  I usually have rats as well, but had to put my 3 year old down a few months ago. I'm a vegetarian.  I collect movies, lovely vases and rat/mouse/horse brick-a-brack.

Now, the not so nice things about my life experiences. I'm diagnosed with severe depression, borderline personality disorder, high stress levels, mild paranoia/anxiety and a few ocd's.

I grew up in a highly volatile home environment.  I was verbally, mentally and physically abused (both violently and sexually). I wasn't good at making friends and lived in my own world. My mind has thankfully blocked much of my experiences out from the age of 10 and under. As a teenager, I was suicidal and socially awkward.  My parents divorced and my Mum continued to mentally abuse me and physically/violently try to hurt me. In my 20s, I became an alcoholic like my Dad, I was diagnosed with severe depression and incapable of living with people.  By my 30s, I had lost all of my friends and became somewhat reclusive. I had a breakdown in my mid to late 30s, I became a recovering alcoholic and I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

These days are much better in that I'm medicated and I see a regular therapist, however, I still struggle with my issues and I still can't live with people. Happily, I've gained insight into my life, I've made some wonderfully close friends (majority online) and I continue to heal. I think of myself as an unfinished jigsaw puzzle.

You can read about my art experiences here - fav.me/d817gi3
My ultimate goal these days is to eventually work with people who suffer with mental health issues and hopefully run art therapy workshops.
