|We Are And Have Always Been And Will Continue To Be A PHOTO-MANIPULATION group.|
What is meant by Photo-Manipulation?
As far as this group is concerned, "photo-manipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new."
The above quote comes from past CR Volunteer for Photo-Manipulation, ^kuschelirmel. [link]
I ask you to use more than three stocks (basic required stock, background, more than one additional stock) to create interesting images.
The example below is NOT a photo-manipulation. It is one vintage stock that has been completely edited using the Smudge and Push tool.
You can find a tutorial on colorizing and using tools to get a painterly effect HERE.
For this group, you can use in your photo-manipulations, brushes, textures, some filters, and some special effects as long as the end results looks like a photo-manipulation as defined above.
What is meant by a Mix-Media?
According to ex-Digital Art GM,`cosmosue, mix media is, "the process of creating a work using more than one form of creation. Take for example a photomanip, you are using photos and maybe some textures and/or brushes. Well take that photomanip and throw in some digital hand painting and now you have mixed more than one medium to create your work".
For More About Mixed-Media, See This Interview With `cosmosue
We Do NOT Do Mixed Media At This Group!
However, doing some "hand work" and using "adjustments, effects" and similar, is expected.
That means, "some" Digital Painting/Airbrushing (or the use of other tools to get a painterly effects), And Rendered Stock Is Allowed to complete your Photo-Manipulation. How much? A little: such as, to finish hair, make the tail of a dress look wind blown, create grass, clear up blemishes on the skin, and such.
Yes, I will no longer accept any deviation that is really Mix-Media or straight forward digital painting; i.e., painting over the original stock for most or the entire deviation.
If you want to participate in one of our challenges, and you're basically a digital painter, why not challenge yourself to do a strict photo-manipulation? After all, that's what this group is about, challenging yourself and learning something new.
If you have any questions please write to me at the group.
