Admin MIAWill anyone who has submitted any work that needed approval by vote please withdraw the piece and resubmit it. Our admin kind of went MIA and I am not sure if she will be returning or not. Intern55 kind of went off the grid in the past month and I really hope everything is alright but in the mean time I will be the only one voting. Thank you for your time in reading this and your patience. If anyone feels like helping me out with admin duties please send me a note or send it through the group.
Monthly Features!!!!So :icontheintern55: pointed out that the group needs to be a bit more active and suggested we do monthly features. I really like the idea of doing that so that is exactly what we're going to do! We need to work out exactly how we are going to do this but fear not we will do a February Feature! So keep an eye out for the feature it will be coming out in the next couple of days, and your work may just show up in the group journal!
As always, go out there and have fun! We love seeing everyone's work!
LGBT Support (photo project)Ok, so I recently read a journal post on a new affiliate of our group. Here's the link http://fav.me/d6wr01c It basically says that a friend of :iconslambaux: is getting married and her family doesn't support her lesbian lifestyle. Slambaux, the great friend they are wants to make a slideshow showcasing DA members out there supporting her decision and lifestyle all over the world to show her that people out there do care! I think it's a great idea! If you do not support homosexuality, it is your right so please don't flame this journal or the other. If you do please participate in this project! The members that do will have the photos they submit to the project featured in the journal on our main page (and a couple of their other works as well). All you need to do is submit the photo onto DA and send us a link of the submission.
Remember this will be shown in a family setting (a wedding) so the photo must be family friendly. A suggestion that :iconslambaux: made was hold a sign saying
Some Small Changes. Please Read!First off you may have noticed that we have gained so new members and I would like to welcome them and thank them for joining up with us!
Secondly, I made a couple adjustments to the submission process on some folders. Horror/Macabre is now up for vote, only because I would like to know what's going into that folder.
Submissions to the featured folder are now limited to one per month as well. Please don't be afraid to submit to the featured folder but try to send us your best work! I have noticed that members have been looking at which folder they are submitting to, thank you for that.
There is a small bit of news, we now have a new folder. Thanks to :iconkleinerengl: who submitted and suggested some wonderful photos in the Semi-Nude/Lingerie type category. I realized I never made a folder for that so I just did! Fill up the folder members! Oh and if anyone thinks that there should be another folder that I haven't thought of please let me know. This is our
On the Hunt (part two)I'm on the hunt for more members still and I really would love some help from you guys. Tell all of your friends about this group tell everyone you know! Remember that the more of us there are, the more out there and exposed your art is, and isn't that what we all want? So join me (please) and go out there and invite people, sift through the endless lists of deviants and reach out! There are so many great photographers that have yet to be found and yet to be shown off to the world. Let's go find them!!!!!
New Affiliate Having ContestOne of our new affiliates is having a contest and I think we should show them some support and join in the fun and games. You do need to join up with the group but that's only a plus! :iconphotographershub: is running this contest and it is based around the subject of whatever you are thankful for. Be it photography, arty, family,pets,anything you can think of. So get out there, join up, and shoot something!
On the HuntSo I'm on the hunt for more members. Tell your friends about this group tell everyone you know. Remember the more of us there are the more out there and exposed your art is, and isn't that what we all want? So join me and go out there and invite people, sift through the endless lists of deviants and reach out! There are so many great photographers that have yet to be found and yet to be shown off to the world. Let's go find them!!!!!
Looking for AdminsOk I give, I need some help!
The group is stagnating a bit and that is a big no-no.
I realize that I haven't been a super founder over here and I've kinda let myself slide.
If you wish to apply for the admin positions, I think there will be about 2-4 positions available, please note me!
I need artists that have a drive and can help drive this group, help recruit members, and essentially help when I'm not around.
Features 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I figured I would randomly go through each member's gallery and post three of my favorites from their photos. Don't worry I will get to all of you. I will do my best to do around 15 members a week, this time.
I've been lax about this for the past couple months but I figure if i make the goal a little easier to attain it'll make my life a bit easier in return.
I hope you enjoy!

Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
