Vintage Couple Challenge!GROUP NEWS
Oh, my goodness, I've been swamped by two personal projects that I slipped, and now this challenge is getting off the ground late. Well, it really isn't difficult, it's something different, that I think you'll like it and be able to get it done by the end of the challenge. If not, and we need more time, as always, I can always extend it.
Speaking of extending, don't forget that the "Solar Gods" Challenge ends next Sunday, February, 5th.
That's still plenty of time to enter!
OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
The current challenge is called "Vintage Valentine" and it features the vintage couple stocks of
quaddles, vintage-visions, Bnspyrd, and MementoMori-stock; and the Vintage Texture stock of Knald.
We're creating a Poster Design with this challenge, NOT a Scene.

First Challenge For 2017--Extended!GROUP NEWS
Good Day, Members!
I finally have my computer back so I can be making my rounds at deviantArt more often. I hope you're as ready as I am for the new year and our first challenge.
I know that not everyone has snow in the month of January, and many of you have had more than enough snow by now, but this is the month that I traditionally do a snow theme challenge or something related to the new year.
This year it is a "Snow Queen" or "Snow Princess" Challenge. I hope you like the stock that I've chosen for you to use as your Snow Queen and get inspired to create a beautiful, magical winter portrait.

I'll spend this week judging and the winners will be posted in a separate journal by the 20th!
So I have about eight gozillion OCs, but for some reason I have the itch to just get more and more and more art of these two goobers.
This is probably gonna be the one and only time I'll ever be able to make a big expensive art contest like this happen, so get it while it's hot!
RIGHT! So I'm looking to get some art of two of my favorite OCs, Naahra and Asphodel. One is humanoid, and one is anthropomorphic. But I'm also looking to get a feral design for Asphodel. Details below!

Leia/Carrie tribute collaboration - Finished!Thanks to all who contributed!
Please read all the rules!
Your image must be new and created for this collaboration. It would be no fun just to get a bunch of old images together. No images made before December 27th will be allowed.
Don't use official images/ photomanipulations of screencaps as it goes against copyright policy.
It's highly preferred if you don't copy screencaps from the movie. Let's not be lazy!
On the subject of laziness: don't use doll bases or any bases at all. We want this work to be completely your own!
Please mention this collaboration in your description and maybe even link to it so that we can get more participants. Also mention it because if you don't we'll take it that you didn't mean to submit it to our collab and move it to a regular folder.
Leia/Carrie must be in
Contest 15 - Rogue One Poster Challenge 6 days left!
Rogue One Poster Challenge
For this contest you'll be creating your own poster for Rogue One. Read on for more details!
- Your poster must have the title of the movie present on the picture. This is a poster project, after all.
- Keep in mind you can use any style you want. You don't have to draw the characters or what have you realistically. Go ahead and use your own style! You can be abstract, you can draw cartoonishly, just do whatever strikes you!
- Do not recreate any actual Rogue One poster. We want to see something new! You can, however, use them as inspiration.
- You may, however create a parody poster based on a non-Star Wars poster if you so choose. Example: Use the poster for The Godfather as inspiration for the layout of your image. There are also bonus points in the bonus points section for anyone who wants to take on this challenge.
- Other than that, you can include whatever you so please. Yo

Manip Academy #10: Blending FireThere is an easy, fast way to blend fire into any scene. This won't work in some cases but on average is a nice method to make a basic and realistic blending. Here, we will create a body out of fire. This is our base composition:
What you need to do is to place your favorite fire photos (preferably on dark/black backgrounds) on Screen blending mode. At first sight there's something missing, and that is the dark areas of the fire, which are muted due to our blending mode.
Create a new layer between the fire layers and your subject and use the Brush tool with medium Opacity and Flow and black color (a dark brown/orange might work as well, depending on your background and color settings) to bring back the dark parts of the fire. Use the Eraser to get rid of any strokes that go beyond the fire itself. A pen tablet is highly recommended to make this process more accurate.
