Overview: My TutorialsThis is an overview of the Photomanipulation / Photoshop Tutorials available in my Gallery.

New Challenge: Seeing Double!GROUP NEWS
Good Morning And Welcome To Our New Challenge.
We didn't have many entries into the "Vintage Valentine" Challenge, so I have those deviations in a Random Feature on the Home page this week, and I will be the only one picking my favorites.
OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
The current challenge is called "Seeing Double" and it features the stock of LongStock, skydancer-stock, PhelanDavion, fuguestock, Tasastock, kirilee, magikstock, and chamberstock.
You are creating an image that contains a Doppelgänger.
"In fiction and folklore, a doppelganger (or doppelga(e)nger, literally "double-goer") is a look-alike or double of a living person, sometimes portrayed as a paranormal phenomenon, and is usually seen as a harbinger of bad luck. In other traditions and stories, they recognize one's 'double-goer' as an evil twin."

Brave New World Contest - 5 weeks left!I haven't had a contest in ages - it's about time though!
Feb. 3rd: updated judges and prizes
Feb. 11th: updated prizes
Feb. 22nd: updated prizes + entries
Theme: Brave New World
Picture the world 1000 years from now.
Will mankind have vanished? Have we managed to eradicate ourselves? If so how? Was it a bomb, a virus, something out of our reach (a natural catastrophe for example)? Are there still people on earth? How do they live? Or have we moved on to the stars? Maybe everything went splendidly, maybe there is no more hunger and everyone has everything they could wish for. Including your personal android to help with your every wish.
Maybe it's a mix of both, neither completely bad nor completely good.
What do you think? Show us!
(nothing else, sorry)

Vintage Couple Challenge!GROUP NEWS
Oh, my goodness, I've been swamped by two personal projects that I slipped, and now this challenge is getting off the ground late. Well, it really isn't difficult, it's something different, that I think you'll like it and be able to get it done by the end of the challenge. If not, and we need more time, as always, I can always extend it.
Speaking of extending, don't forget that the "Solar Gods" Challenge ends next Sunday, February, 5th.
That's still plenty of time to enter!
OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
The current challenge is called "Vintage Valentine" and it features the vintage couple stocks of
quaddles, vintage-visions, Bnspyrd, and MementoMori-stock; and the Vintage Texture stock of Knald.
We're creating a Poster Design with this challenge, NOT a Scene.
If you do not know the different between a Design and a Scene, ple
Solar Gods Challenge Extended!GROUP NEWS
By request, I have extended the "Snow Queen Portrait" Challenge to Wednesday, January 18th. So if you've started one and it didn't quite
get completed by the original due date, go ahead and get it finish and submit.
We're going to go ahead and begin our next challenge today.
I've been pushing you all very hard these last few challenges, and even for our last contest, to create something more realistic, but this new challenge should give you the ability to relax and create something that is more of a design than a scene and things do not have to look like how they do in the real world.
No, we're not doing an abstract, or surrealism; there will still be a couple of basic rules to cover to make your image look acceptable to the viewer.
So Don't Neglect To Do Some Thinking And Some Planning Before You Begin Looking For Your The Perfect Stock!

Novice= Level Beginner
Everybody can participate, but your work has to be a photomanipulation or Hybrid (Manipulation with painted elements in it)
During the 3 battles you will receive a challenge ( yeah you will be making a manipulation!!) which will have a theme.

Hi Everyone. I have returned to DA after 5 or so years away. I just could not find a home where I felt part of a community, though I left DA frustrated. I am returning home.
I hope to reconnect with many old friends and make many more new friends.
You may remember my passion was for HDR Photography, That passion is still there, but now I am attempting to learn the skills of Photo-manipulation. It is very early days and lots to learn but you can see the results of my first tutorial.
Linked below is my Flickr account, I have not decided whether I will bring my photography over to DA or keep them separate. Decisions Decisions.
