About Us | Request Feedback | Submission Rules




Hello from the admins of TheArtOfManipulation! It's time for a new Contest and this one is going to be BIG! :happybounce:

How it Will Work


For this contest, we are going to make things TOUGH. We will provide you with a list of stockers that you can choose from, however you only get to choose ONE stock artist and you must use all stock from that artist. And to make things even harder, you cannot use any human models, premade backgrounds, PNG cut-outs, or brushes (except the preset ones located in your software already). Also you MUST use a minimum of 3 stock images, there is no maximum :)




The Rules


Must be a member of TheArtOfManipulation in order to submit to the contest folder, make sure you read the rules and answer the 3 questions to join the group!

:bulletblack: Your entry MUST be a PHOTOMANIPULATION. That means it involves 2 or more (in this case 3 or more) photographic elements that have been combined to create something new. It is absolutely fine to have photomanipulations that have been painted over (and thus may technically be Mixed Media). SINGLE photographs that have ONLY been brushed or textured will not qualify. There must be at least 2 3 photographic elements. If you are in doubt, please check with us!

:bulletblack: No entries created before May 15, 2013 will be accepted. Entries must be new and specifically created for this competition.

:bulletblack: Contest closes at 11:59 PM CST on June 15th. No late entries will be accepted.

:bulletblack: ALL stock must be credited. We will decline all entries with questionable stock. Direct links are NOT necessary, but they are always appreciated.

:bulletblack: Collaborations are OK as long as all collaborators are credited, but if a prize is won, that prize will be split evenly among collaborators. If you are submitting a collaboration, you only need to submit the work once.

:bulletblack: You may enter up to TWO deviations, but you can only win once.

:bulletblack: Please include a statement in your artist's comments that you have created the deviation for the Single Stock Challenge. Please link to this blog.




You may submit to this folder: theartofmanipulation.deviantar…




List of Stock Providers


You MUST use only stock from ONE of these providers!

Sorry, If I use this [link] is that count as human model ?
Reply
:iconnikkidoodlesx3:
nikkidoodlesx3 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Unfortunately yes because its located under: Resources & Stock Images / Stock Images / Model / Male / Full Body which tells me there is a human model inside.
If it was a costume located in wardrobe or something without a person inside then it would be okay.

Ok, thank you ^^ It is museum stock so I don't think there is human inside. But for safe, I will not use it ^^

I'm definitely participating, but i'm finding it a REAL challenge! I love it because it's making me learn how to do from scratch a ton of things that I usually use brushes and stock for, like clouds, stars, smoke etc. This is amazing!!
