Hey there everyone, summer is gone. Can you believe that?
I was so busy I only had a couple of days to enjoy it at the seaside, and that's when I get a flu. :roll:
I guess I shouldn't have taken that vacation after all... LOL.

How was your summer? Share! :eager:


As some other news, I have been part of the beautiful project/contest held by Aeirmid :iconaeirmid:

And, please congratulate them, because they won the second place!
:party::party::party:

Congratulation to :iconwingedwarrior7: and :iconpriscillasantana:
I'm getting ready a bag of goodies for you as well. This was not part of the plan, but I'm so proud of you! :tears:

So together with a bunch of lovely and talented people, we are part of :iconphotomanip101:

An advice, please?

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 26, 2013, 8:51 AM




What do you do when you are overwhelmed with everything and you feel like 24 hours it's not enough to finish up what you have to do?
How do you relax? Music? Bubble bath? Something that can be done within the house?

Celebrity photos are NOT stock...

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 9, 2012, 12:59 PM




I know this thing has been discussed and over-discussed, but I come across old deviants, and talented people using celebrity images in their manipulations. Let's say newbies have an excuse - they didn't read the deviantART rules.

But you, old deviants - what is your excuse?



FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

Only the legal owner of an image or resource has the ability to offer the work for reuse and images taken from print or film, images of celebrities, models or manipulated "renders" are not considered valid stock or resources. Any website offering these materials is not regarded as a valid stock and resources site.

Please, once and for all. Those of you, that come across such images, don't encourage it by telling them "Oh lovely work"... it might be a lovely work, but it's illegal.

Every single artist wants their work respected.
But some of you seem to forget it goes both ways...

Upcoming projects + giveaway on-going

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 26, 2012, 11:57 AM




Hi guys, how are you? :blowkiss:


I know it's not even December, but my mind is already planning the next Christmas. LOL.
Although I am not really the "plan-it" type of person, I learned that some plans or ideas, always help you know which way to drag your life.
So, I am already trying to come up with some "plans" for the next year.

I am sharing two of my biggest plans for the next year, involving arts.


Grimm Series Projects

I grew up with Grimm fairytales. Whether it was Snow White or Rapunzel, I loved each one of them.
So I already started the project, and I plan to finish the whole project next year.
An artwork with my own interpretation of my favorite fairytales from the Grimm Brothers.

Tutorial Collection Book

I did a tutorial for an Australian Photoshop magazine, and I enjoyed it.
I'm planning to release an entire book, with a collection of tutorials covering everything: from background to finishing the photomanipulation.
I still don't know how many tutorials will it have, how it will look, sound, what will contain, but it's on the "to-do list"

It's also gonna include some of my best works explained, and a few words about me.


Mostly, this is it. But will add more stuff whenever they come to my mind.

Which are your thoughts and plans for the next year?

:bulletpink: Don't forget about the giveaway!
It's on-going right here: GIVEAWAY

This is an image I took today after picking up the prints I have for you! :heart:

What is wrong with deviantART?

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 16, 2012, 8:57 AM


Am I the only having this really annoying problem?
Why is deviantART f**king up all the colors?


I see certain colors in Potoshop, and once they hit deviantART - they turn into something else?



FIXED
The problem was me, deviantART works properly. :aww:
Thanks everyone for help!

Surgery

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 10, 2012, 4:18 AM




Hi guys, what's up?


As the title says, I've been trough a surgery this Friday.
It was a surgery I chose to do, after a long debating and thinking, and the reasons where both medical and aesthetic.

I had a rinoplastia.

I know many people don't agree with this kind of surgeries, but sometimes they are a blessing.
Having the possibility to modify something that's not quite right can change your whole life by boosting your self confidence.
And that is exactly the reason I chose to do the surgery. I won't brag about how wrong or ugly my nose was, because I always get the same "it looked ok..."

BUT, for anyone out there fearing the surgery. DON'T
It didn't hurt at all. It's 5 days after the surgery, and I don't feel any pain at all.
I didn't felt anything after the surgery and I don't feel any pain at all now.
It's just a little discomfort caused by the bandages. There are a few bruises and my eyes/face got a bit puffy - but that is something that goes away really quick.

The result is amazing. And I feel great!
I just wanted to share this happiness with you!
:heart:

Ask me anything - Answers!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 27, 2012, 12:47 PM


Hi guys! How have you been?

I know it's been long since I should have answered to your question, I took some time, and did that.
You have my answers here.
I'm picking the most interesting question tomorrow - and I'll update my journal to let you know who gets the pack of goodies.

HUGS!




Q:If your heart was a material, what would it me comprised of?

A: Vibranium. I want a heart as cool and as strong as the shield of Captain America!

Q: How do you add the lights/shadows on your creations so greatly?

A: This is a compliment, and I want to thank you for it.
I don't know. It all goes with the flow;
Even though I do a lot of fantasy/dreamy kind of works, I try to keep what needs to be real. (Shadows, lights, etc). I just try to make them look, as they would look if the image would have been real.

Q: How did you get passionate about photomanipulation ? Is photomanipulation your most favourite form of art, or do you like something else better ? (i mean form of art that you can actually perform; not, for example, music, if you cannot compose songs).

A: I was an art person since I was little.
Actually, I was a pretty good dancer when I was little. I still am, but I'm not between the professional ones. I just dance now and then, to keep myself in shape and also to express somewhat the dancing talent... I guess.
I also like photography - which I did before discovering photomanipulation.
But yes, photomanipulation is my favorite form of art now.
I love it!

Q: Could you tell me about the moment of conception of an idea for a new artwork and the process that follows until your vision is finally done in material form?

A: I get this question quite often.

My ideas are either influenced by songs, books, videos or movies I see. Either they come out of nothing, and they just strike me when I see a certain stock.
Then comes the long and painful job: finding the stock.
Afterwards, it's the beautiful process of blending and mixing the image until it gets to the point in which it looks like the image from my head.
Sometimes I like to keep to file a few more hours or days before posting it.
I always come back to change something at it.

Q:I heard that you were leaving dA for a while, what makes you comeback here?

A: The art and the beautiful people.
I felt sorry for the break I took. It's like being in a coma. When you wake-up, you feel like the whole world has changed. dA has changed a lot, it's true. But my passion for art didn't.
And while I have people that get inspired by my artwork, and while I have people that I love and cherish here - I feel the need to be around.
Yeah, dA is like a sweet addiction. :bucktooth:

Q: How do you blend backgrounds so effectively? What's your secret?

A: I don't have a secret.
As I mentioned before, even if the theme is fantasy or dark, I like to keep the natural things as...real and natural as possible.
Lights, shadows and color matching - this is my secret!

Ask me anything! :)

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 10, 2012, 3:43 PM


I received many question among time, and sometimes the same questions over and over, so I thought about giving out the opportunity to those who have something to ask, to do it.

You can post on your question in a comment to this journal, send me a note if you want to keep the question private;

I'll give you two weeks to ask anything you want, and then I'll select all the question and answer to them in a journal entry.

You can ask anything you want, about art, life, whatever comes to your mind, but please - don't be rude.

The most interesting question, will receive a pack of goodies from me! :party:

Changing your deviantART username...

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 3, 2012, 8:51 PM



It seems that deviantART introduced (for subscribers) the possibility of changing your screename/username.
And many of you have already changed your usernames.

3 or 4 years ago, I wouldn't have had second thoughts, but now...
Aren't you afraid that people won't actually know who you are anymore?

Yes, it says "Formerly known as..." but you gotta reach the main page to see that...

I was looking for someone, the other day, in my notes... And I realized after 5 minutes of searching, that I can't find that person anymore.
It just got me really confused...

People know me as ImaginaryRosse, wouldn't it be confusing to change my name?

The Avengers...

Journal Entry: Tue May 15, 2012, 6:09 AM


I went to see "The Avengers". The movie was incredible! And was worth the money.

Did anyone got the chance to see it yet?
Which is your favorite scene? And character?

Why is XBOX so complicated?

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 12, 2012, 10:54 AM



Besides being so expensive, and besides having quite expensive games - it's the most weird and complicated console I've used.
You have two type of game CDs, NTSC and PAL.
It seems that NTSC works for USA and Japan, and PAL for Europe.
I have bought some games, that are NTSC and the funny thing is that some work and some don't.
Why can't they just make ALL work? Like, what's the point?

And, it seems like I live in Narnia; otherwise I don't see the reason why they don't accept my PayPal or Credit Card?
I can't buy anything, I can just sit and watch other enjoy their cool features, and wait until they make all the features available for all mortals...

Wasn't it easier back then, when 200 games used to fit in a floppy disk?
:no:

Tattoo

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 28, 2012, 1:23 PM


...and so I got myself tattooed :giggle:

As some of you might know, my grandmother passed away last year in November. And so I decided to get myself a tattoo in her loving memory.
This is what came out.


The tattoo artist did an amazing job, I wasn't expecting to get such a great result, mostly because I knew that the tattoo will be made after a sculpture more then after a drawing or an image.
But I'm happy with the final result.
You can see their inspiring gallery here: BASTattoo
