Light Tutorial-Getting To Know Robhas1leftThere are many good photomanipulators who sort of get lost in the crowd at deviantArt, and it's very said when I think about it. One such person is robhas1left. I thought it was about time that more deviants get to know him in a personal way. In addition, he has written a tutorial on light and illumination in his deviations.
Q: What are your general personal thoughts about photo-manipulation.
I personally love the art of photo-manipulation! I have enjoyed and been engaged in some form of art most all of my life. I was born with a pencil in my hand. In photo-manipulations the images you begin with usually all differ in hue, contrast, exposure etc., and you have to adjust each one so that it fits seamlessly into a picture. The possibilities in photo-manipulation are only limited by the stocks you have and your imagination.
Q:. You're self-taught. Can you give us a history of your time at deviantArt as you progress in your photo-manipulation skill

Project Educate: Photographing Your Crafts...
Photographing crafts is not as daunting as it seems. For those of you out there with amazing creative streaks in you, it isn't actually that difficult to take it one step further and put the effort into snapping your wonderful creations. It just takes a little planning, a camera and some creativity.
Rule Number One
Never ever ever ever ever Photograph something on your bed. Ever. I mean it! Your bed is for sleeping, and er, other things. But definitely not for placing your well constructed craft item upon, pointing your camera at, and pressing the button.
You might think I'm stating the obvious but seriously, the amount of people who think they'll just pop their item on the bed and take a picture...is..well..I don't have the statistics but there are many of Us!
Rule Number Two
Stay away from your cluttered up shelves and bits and pieces. Put your craft i
Polymer Clay and Air Dry Clay IntroPolymer Clay and Air Dry Clay Intro
This will be an intro and some tips to using both oven bake and air dry clay. I'll be showing you how I do things, but every artist is different, and I encourage you to take whatever you'd like to learn from my process and figure out which ways work best for you!
Oven Bake Clay
Oven bake or polymer clay comes in many brands, colors, and types. A major difference among brands is the clay's consistency and strength. For example, Sculpey brand alone has multiple clay lines from original to eraser to bendy. A popular Sculpey brand among DA artists is "Super Sculpey," a more ceramic like polymer clay with a consistency that lends itself to detail oriented pieces. Finding the right clay for you is a bit of trial and error and simply finding which brand you prefer to work with.
COMMUNITY WEEK - Giving Back!Everyone is on deviantART for those own reasons: to share art, to view art, to get critique, to give critique, to join a group, to open a group, to make friends--the list goes on. As much fun as it is to be here, it can also be a lot of work. We all get as much or as little out of the deviantART community as we are willing to work for.
This journal, which is quite possible the last one posted for Community Week, is all about giving something back to the community. I have found a few projects designed to give back and featured them below. Also, at the end of the article, I have a request from one of my co-workers who is currently studying online communities for her PhD.
We all know someone that selflessly gives of their time and energy to support others on deviantART. I'm not here to debate about selflessness and whether or not there are ever any truly selfless acts. We all get back at least some of what we give. But as I was going through journals and searching for points fundra
PE Community Week - Roundup!!!Our second community week has now concluded! All the deviants who got involved have been fantastic - and the contest entries I think we can all agree were really nice to see. The contest has now closed and judging has begun.

I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic group and tell you all about it!
dALinkSystem is a Group dedicated to increasing artists exposure, by helping others and themselves through a simple and effective "Linking" system.
"Link another artists submission in your artist's comment box. It helps everyone's exposure and finds undiscovered art."
The Link System was originated by TheFulkrum and myself (Echostar08), in May of 2009. What began with a few "Linkers" has grown into a large "Linkers Community" of caring deviants, who utilize The Link System to help increase their exposure, while helping others.
Linking can be done in as little as 5 minutes. It's simple to do and takes only a little extra time when you're submitting a deviation. The little bit of extra time you spend to personally choose and feature someone else's art in your artist's comment box (or in your deviation description), is ve
PE: Photomanip - Interview new photomanipulatorsPE: Photomanip - Interview With New Manipulators
Most of us have a special part of our hearts set aside for our first times and new beginnings. I remember myself how I felt when I completed my first manipulation, when I read the first tutorial and above all when I upload my first deviation. These deviants are at this point when things seem so new, but are staring to fall into place. They will share with us their first impressions on DA's PM community.
What drove you to become an artist? What inspires you to create
Well everybody who knows me will tell you I was born an artist. I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. It's really just something I feel inside me, the one thing that is always certain in my life! Life inspires me. There are really
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
