Photomanipulators, I'd like a word with you.Hey. Now you know I love you guys, sometimes in a manner that borders on inappropriate...but I think it's time I were honest with you about your less-than-appealing habits. So here goes.1.) OK, here's the one I always dread complaining about, so I'm going to couch it in a way that encourages rather than scolds: If you have the talent to make a really beautiful manipulation that features a pretty model who's been outlined in a pastel color and is standing in front of a beautiful blurred background and or/ a forrest, you probably have the talent to go farther. So go farther. Stretch. Do something different. Make something surreal. Make something whimsical. I admit that I'm guilty of enjoying these sorts of manips. Some of them are so pretty they transcend their cliched nature. And I know they'll get you a crazy amount of faves. (I bust my hump eschewing--mostly--this cliche so it kinda burns my butt that folks get rewarded with such adulation for this tripe.) But, still, enough. It's be
WHERE DID MY NEW PIECE GO?Well, it looked like it was going to go viral, then the moron who uploaded the stock model informed me that she did not have permission to upload the photo. I had to delete the piece. Beware of using photos from this account: http://angie-c23.deviantart.com Apparently she just steals photos.How incredibly stupid do you have to be upload photos you don't have permission to use? I just spent hours making this piece. I'M LIVID. Um, stockers, you're not allowed to STEAL PHOTOS FROM PEOPLE. And now you've cost me time, sweat and toil FOR NOTHING.
Do you like money?A friend of mine needs a graphic made for his business. He wants a series of different sorts of buildings, with a description of his business written on one of the buildings as if its an old painted sign. This is the perfect job for the great manippers here at dA.My friend is an awesome, non-creepy person and pays generously. If any of you reading this are interested in getting in touch with him and making a bit of money, please let me know. Feel free to respond here or note me.Thanks!

DD + Print Sales + Talking a Bit about My ProcessI forgot to thank Miss Aeirmid for featuring my DD. Thank you, my dear. You made my day and my week!For whatever reason, May was a blessed month for print sales! I sold one or more of the following: I can haz fame and fortune nao? A friend asked me to explain my process a bit more re:Well, I got the idea from a couple of sources. 1.) The model. I think her messy/bruised appearance suggested a tussle. But instead of going dark, I thought it would be more fun and original to go humorous/whimsical. 2.) An incredible manipulation I saw awhile ago that featured a woman balancing on a telephone wire. I wanted to take that idea and do my own spin on it. So, there you have it: A very silly woman who picks fights with birds. And apparently loses. Hope this gives everybody a little more insight into how my manipulations come
Gah! Need help finding a piece of stock!Hi all!Listen, I'm desperate. I found a couple of pieces of stock I loved a few days ago. Thought I had bookmarked or faved them, but it looks like I did not. STUPID! STUPID!Anyway, if any of you have seen these pieces, please lemme know.It's a couple angles of a really grand ivory-colored gown. The train is HUGE and it's almost round in shape. It's a transparent png or psd file and a recent upload, I believe. I've been scouring the resource galleries. Can't find it.If you know what I'm talking about, I'd be forever grateful if you'd hook me up !

Remember Me?Hi everybody. Been a minute, hasn't it? Well, it's hard to check in much when you're taking care of an 8-month-old baby. But it breaks my heart, because I hardly have a chance to make my art and ADMIRE yours.It's interesting watching everyone evolve, get better. I swear I've seen so many of you go from artists with potential to just straight-up wunderkinds. Gosh, I hope you all keep making your gorgeous art. It inspires me more than you know.I hope I get a moment to catch my breath and catch up on all your art.Anyway, I was honored to have been asked to write an article for an issue Somerset Digital Studio (that'll be coming out in March). I hope you'll check it out.
Where the hell have I been?In short, I gave birth 2 weeks ago to a little angel. Meet my new son:I don't know when I'll be back on any sort of regular basis, but I wanted to check in and offer my profuse thanks for all the faves and comments.

How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there! People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years. Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints. They worked for me but they may not work for you.And now that you have a dA account... What should you do?► POST FINISHED ARTWORKS ONLYYour first post should be a fi

Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”— HtBlack of theWrittenRevolution
