Hello boys, and girls!

I hope you're in a nice Halloween spirit, or not. I just hope everyone is doing very well.

Today, I'm taking the time to tell you what's up with the group now and in the next month.


:bulletgreen: First, there are some really spooky entries in The "Halloween Bash Contest" contest.
Thanks to you who participated! They really came out great!

I want everyone to be part of the picks for this contest. I've posted a poll on the Home page, and I know that polls go to all members.
So do one of your membership duty,  and GO VOTE!. The entry with the most points is our Best Of Show. Then the next three will be First, Second, and Third. All of the others are Honorable Mentions.


Don't think that I will know, because if I'm just a little suspicious,  your entry will be null and void from the contest!


:bulletgreen: I am STILL in the need of a volunteer who wants to help the group and be our Feature Moderator. The Feature Moderator must be-ready to post a group journal every Wednesday. All you need is some resources and stock, plus manipulations for the theme of the month.

It is not a difficult moderator position, I just can't go back to doing the features by myself because I'm doing so much more on and off of dA . I hate looking around and not seeing any features. It's not like we're just a "submit-accept any deviation" group, and I like to keep it that way.
If you volunteer, know that theheek will be helping.

If you're interested, please contact me. :)


It saddens my heart that both PriscillaSantana and nitchwarmer had to leave our group for personal reasons.

I miss them very much.

:bulletgreen: Last:

Reminder, The Contest Is Ending Soon!

Hi everyone,

Sorry that I've done a disappearing act on you, but I've had some "issues" that needed to be "unissued".  So I thought I stop by to remind you of a couple of things.


I thought I'd be making an appearance and see a bunch of entries, but that  didn't happen. :(

Thank goodness there is still plenty of time to participate and submit an entry.  You can find all of the details in the journal that shows up below this one.

We could still use more prizes. cazcastalla has created a new  resource pack just for us! And that's the sort of items we can use. Not just the same old, same old, but new stuff to thank our members for participating.

The contest ends in two weeks, and I guess I have to bug more members and some friends commit to a donation so that we can really have a grand Halloween!

Next, I still need a Feature Moderator. That's why there hasn't been a feature in a few weeks. I just can't fit it into my dA scheduale any longer.  This is a once a week feature of photomanipulations and resources on a theme. Like right now, we should be doing Halloween.
theheek can help. I've already started giving instructions, but like I've already said, I had those "issues" that needed to be beat back some so that I could make an appearance.

Please send me a note if you would like to become part of the team by being our Feature Moderator.

Last, I know I haven't announced our picks from the Days Of Orange challenge. I'll be giving critiques on that one myself, so give me a little bit more time.

I'll be on close watch more, so be good, and get your Halloween Bash contest entry completed so that we have a real competition, not just a few getting everything by default!

Hi The Fantasim,
I would like to summit an entry for the halloween contest but really not sure for the level.…
Could you help me ?
Nolamom3507 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014
Oh, that's very nice!  I looked at your gallery, and even though there aren't a lot of pieces in it yet, what you have is of very good quality.  How about starting at Level 3?  That will give you more flexibility to go up.  Usually Level 1 is for utter newbies to photomanipulation.  Level 2 is for folks who have a good understanding of how their program works, but need to work on execution of their art.  Level 3 has ease with their program, good composition skills, and generally good blending/finishing techniques.  Level 4 is accomplished or adept at photomanipulation.

Thank you !
I'm very happy that you'll find my work worthwhile.
I'm only discovering how deviant art is such a great place.
All this social activity and all those incredible artworks... so inspiring.
Thanks for your advice. I will submit my piece for the contest.
See you...

The guidelines are in the journal on the main page, as is the countdown clock.  The current challenge is orange.  Please make sure to use legitimate stock from deviantArt, as we do check.
