The Real Surreal Mural Game

GROUP NEWS

Hello Members!


"The Real Surreal Mural" is a Group Game Activity. It is NOT a challenge! You're not competing against anyone and there are no judges.

It's really a relay game where you'll be teamed with other group members. Each member will have a turn to add to an image to create a Surreal wallpaper desktop for us to share with the group.

All you need to do is participate and have some fun!


:bulletwhite: I have set aside some special Exclusives Stock by BVFoto, Drury-Lane, and TheStockWarehouse as participating gifts for everyone.

:bulletwhite: We'll play from June 5th - June 30th.  

You can take as much time as you need on your part of the image when it's your turn to play depending
on how many members are on your team. So, there's no rush, but do be considerate of your teammates.


:star:WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FIRST:star:


:bulletblue: The minimum resolution for your wallpaper is 1600x1200. Since it's best to make a digital art smaller than it is
larger, you can make it any of these standard screen sizes:

Standard PC / Mac (4:3)
1344x1008
1280x1024
1400x1050
1600x1200
2048x1536

Dual Display / Widescreen
1344x840
1440x900
1600x600
1600x1000
1680x1050
1920x1200
2048x768
2304x864
2560x960
2560x1024
3200x1200

If you need more information about creating desktop wallpapers, go to this guide written in 2007 by achann:

fav.me/d3ji4m7

:bulletblue: Tomorrow morning (I'm in PST), you'll get the list of your teammates.  

If you haven't signed up yet, and you want to play, there's still time! Simply comment to this journal or send me a note. You'll be added to the end of a team.


:bulletblue: Below are backgrounds and sky stock from our Stock Affiliate's websites.

:bulletblue: The first person on the top of the list will choose one or more than one of the required stock to combine as
the beginning of the image.

:bulletwhite: Remember, you're working in teams, so do not attempt to finish the image by yourself.

:bulletblue: You can do anything you like to keep the image Surreal or like a dream. It shouldn't look extremely weird nor crazy nor really fantasy.

Here are some examples by our members from our Gallery folders:

aquarium by Darnok9   Slow and Steady by debNise   Broken by nitchwarmer  

Airy-Fairy by Lora-Vysotskaya   blossoming by Rui-Abel Prisons and hopes by EveBlackwood

:bulletwhite: Do Whatever It Takes To Complete The Photomanipulation And Create A Mesmerizing Image!


PASSING IT ON

:bulletblue: When you're satisfied with what you've have added to the Surreal image, DO NOT FLATTEN IT!

Save as a .psd or .png file. If you don't see these file when you go to SAVE, check your File Preferences and include one or both before you save.

:bulletblue: Upload to your sta.sh account.

:bulletblue: As always, list the stocks with direct links, and contact the stock artist.

:bulletblue: Contact the next member on your team using a dA note with the sta.sh url. Also, please contact me
to let me know that you're done.

WHAT TO DO WHEN IT'S DONE


:bulletblue: Continue in this fashion until the last teammate is reached.  The last teammate will add the finishing touches;i.e. textures, brushes, special effects, special lighting, and anything necessary to finish the image AND THEN FLATTEN BEFORE THE FINAL SAVE.

:bulletblue: If you've mixed photo stock with 3D stock, be sure to categorize it as Digital>Mixed Media

:bulletblue: In addition, any member of the team can correct any obvious flaws in the image.

:bulletblue: The last team member will send me the link to your final wallpaper. I will include all stock providers, all artists, and send you and your teammates a copy to upload to your gallery. In addition, I will submit to a special  folder in our Gallery along with a Feature. You can download everyone's wallpaper from the Gallery or the Feature.

Remember, deviations that are NOT for the Game will be declined.

IMPORTANT HELPFUL JOURNALS:
About: Design, Scene, And Elements And PrinciplesNEWS
This is one of our "About" Lessons; a series of  journals about Photomanipulation, about Art, and about being an Artist.  These journals exist to help you, the Photomanipulator, be a better artist.  After all, we are artist who use Photomanipulation as our media, but to create great art, we must know what we're doing.  Also, I want our group members to be educated in using the appropriate language.

This "About" Lesson covers the definitions of terms you should be familiar with as an artist: Design, Scene, and the Elements and Principles of Design with examples. 


Introduction
Over the years I have found that many people join deviant art to participate as a Photomanipulator, but do not know difference between a "design" and a "scene".  Knowing the difference is an important one, not only for the group, but for you as an artist.  There have been time when I've asked for a "design" challenge entry that some members w

This "About" Lesson is my third revamp version on the all important art technique, How to Create the Illusion of 3D Dept on a 2D surface.  

Space exist in the real three-dimensional world.  It is the space between and around objects.
Depth is the quality of being deep; deepness. 
:bulletblack: There may only be a distance of a few inches of space between and around one object to another, (for example, from the front of my monitor to the back of my office wall) or many miles (such as looking across
Light/Shadows And Depth Activity!GROUP NEWS
Hello Members!
We are going to have an activity for the first two weeks of this month. It's called "Light /Shadows And Depth".
This short activity will help you with two things:
Bullet; White Placing objects, people, and other stock all going in the same direction with the main light source.
Bullet; White Practice getting the since of Space and Depth into your photomanipulations.
How you handle light and shadow, and create depth, helps your photomanipulatieons look more realistic.
This Activity Is Really Meant For Beginning And Intertermediate Skilled Members, But Truthfully, In Our Last Contest, I Saw Advance Members Making These Errors. So, Read Over What's Below And See If You Could Use Some Pointers.
I hope many of you decide to join me on this activity. 
Everyone who participates will receive 25 points and some exclusive stock.
