CONGRATULATIONS!

LEVEL 2 PICK OF THE WEEK

The Moon [Steampunk Tarot].[B] by Can-Cat
"The Moon" by Can-Cat
"I really like this interpretation of The Moon tarot card. I know how difficult it was to find stock of two dogs facing the direction of the original tarot card, but the choices made here makes the card very dramatic. I especially enjoy the addition of the stars, how the moon is created, and the addition of steam punk images and the required moon. Well done!"


The-Fool-Steampunk-Tarot by randomxinwonderland
"The Fool" by randomxinwonderland
"Even though I don't get a strong sense of "The Fool" tarot card in this image, for Steam Punk, this works! Giving the image a vintage look help the most. The trouble about it not being a true "The Fool" card, however, is the dog is missing (or some type of animal as a companion); but, the original fool is traveling, and so is this Steam Punk character, and thus the biggest reason why except it. And on top of that, the image is very well executed. So I have to give kudos for taking the challenge and really doing  something different with it.:clap:"



LEVEL 3 PICK OF THE WEEK


Steampunk Tarot Card by Renata-s-art
"Steampunk Tarot Card" by Renata-s-art
"
I love the additional detail worked into the model and how the she has made the piece very magical with the floating gears,  given the card is The Magician."


Queen of cups! by ThunderMadArts14
"Queen Of Cups!" by ThunderMadArts14
"Very impressive work done on the background and the border. I love the vibrant colors of the piece very eye catching."


0-The Fool by Mandelblute
"0-The Fool" by Mandelblute
"Great work composing the model from the different stocks and I love the look of the card boarder very steampunk and streamlined. "


LEVEL 4 PICK OF THE WEEK

Steam Wheel Of Fortune by TheFantaSim
"Steam Wheel Of Fortune" by TheFantaSim
"I love this One. It is clean and simple has the white smiley face and the steampunk look . I love that the model is sitting totally ignoring the world around her. The clouds give it a realism as does the stock that she is sitting on it looks like a mechanical machine from a different time period,  very vintage. wonderful job my friend.............."


Der Mond by amethystmoonsong
"Der Mond" by amethystmoonsong
"I really like this one it has a vintage feel to it. All of the stock go very well together and I love the animals. They look like they are just keeping her company. I love the model as well she is sweet and angelic looking. Wonderful job. A very inspiring piece of work."

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
About: Creating The Illusion Of Space And DepthNEWS
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 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.
