After disappearing from dA for almost 2 years-- to mainly focus on my academics-- I've finally returned just in the beginning of June...And the response that I've received on my new work is just simply overwhelming!
I truly never expected such appreciation for my work especially since I'm so rusty on my photomanip skills after the long break. Thank you so so much
Now that I'm back, I'm trying to get into the full swing of things in the dA community. I was sad to find out that many of the friends I had back then, have also left dA. I feel a bit alone and friendless on dA right now.
I've joined a few groups to help remedy this, and I've been fervently adding to my
collections and giving out as much feedback as possible
was probably one of the best thing I did so far
, their bi-weekly photomanip challenges really push me off my butt and and actually participate. THANK YOU for this!
I also participated in the FeedbackFrenzy
critique chat, which really was great. I gave and got back some great feedback! So look for improvements in my new work
Last week, I started my own stock account Alienesse-Stock
with mainly nature and object stock. Please take a look and see if you find something useful. I'm eagerly awaiting to see the first artwork created with my stock--- it's so exciting
Currently Working on:
Entry for the Springtime Contest at SaiMono. This will also be my entry into the Before and After Competition at projecteducate because I used all the feedback from the critique chat to improve this piece DONE!
I have 3 specific ideas floating in my head for my next manip... Not sure which one will materialize first Practising my commenting and feedback skills...
Gone are the the days of "nice work", now I'm trying to make it more like "nice work--colours this/atmosphrere that/blahblahblah"
! I'm obviously NOT an expert but if you want some feedback from this lowly and humble artist, I'd love to help out
