Manip Challenges #004After a longer hiatus, they are back! Find below our 4th Manip Challenges!
Please don't forget to credit and notify all resource providers you use stock of - including the challenge stock!
Note to NaySayers: this is supposed to be a fun event. It's called a challenge because there are rules to observe. But it is in the nature of these rules that a lot of similar images will be created for this. While everyone likes a great idea and/or a piece that is on a high technical level, this excercise is not meant to be seen in such a light. Meaning that in a classic contest, we usually look for originality and compete with others -- here, we look for a personal moment of satisfaction, maybe helping someone break their artist's block by doing something just for the sake of doing it. Not everything always has to be a big competition. Sometimes, all you need is a nudge to do something at all. We like to provide that nudge. If you don't like looking at a lot of similar pieces, ma

Challenge: The Art of Lighting
Hi guys! We are going to be having a monthly educational challenge for you all to participate in!

Sounds fun, right?
So, I hear you all would like to know what's the 411 on lighting, so I am here to write up a jour

The Green People ChallengeGROUP NEWS
Real quick...I want to thank my moderators for keeping the group running while I'm taking a big mental break. Especially, our Judge Moderator, Nolamom3507 for catching me as I fall.
Remember, the moderators represent me, and you're expected to act like a civil person when they contact you for any reason. Got it?
Our current challenge is called "Earth People". This is our version of the Green Man.
Some of you may already know what a "Green Man" is; for others, here is the definition:
"The Green Man motif has many variations. Found in many cultures from many ages around the world,
the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities. It is primarily interpreted as a symbol of
rebirth, representing the cycle of growth each spring. Some speculate that the mythology of the Green
Stock Use + Stock Art Features 5 [massive edition]These features are my way of thanking you for using my stock - I'm afraid, I can't feature all, but I will feature my personal faves in each issue. It's also a way to showcase some fellow stockers, so don't forget to scroll down for some stock art gems as well!
I try hard to keep up with my message center, but mostly, I'm buried. So I try to answer any questions asked (sometimes it'll take me a while, please be patient!) and I look at and fave all artwork made with my stock. I also try to leave comments now and again, but mostly, I'll just fave and run - please don't take that personally! I rather put up some new stock than copy-pasta some generic thank you message, I think you'll be in favour of that.
I haven't done one of these in far too long - so this is going to be a massive feature!
