Well it took me a long time before I was comfortable enough to even attempt to post anything here (About 3 years I've had this account?). There are so many great artists on here it is intimidating as all get out to take that leap! I'd like to thank everyone for all the positive feedback I've gotten on my first deviations. I really hope you all are enjoying them! Losing the ability to take my own photos this year has been rough getting used to, and photomanips are a really therapeutic outlet for me. I've really been having fun manipulating Cosplay and Pinup style photos over the last few weeks, and would LOVE to keep doing that through this next year, but it sure is scary asking people on Deviant Art to use photos to work with sometimes!
I've talked with some truely amazing people who let me work with their images this year and... I'd like to put this invitation following out there for those of you who like this style I'm developing. I'm a big nerd and 80's fan so that's why cosplay has been my favorite genre, but I'll try to work with any subject. If you are a model, photographer, or cosplayer and would like me to work with one on your images I'd be honored to give a few of them a try! If this sounds like something you're interested in just send me a note. All I would ask for is a fairly high resolution photo that is mostly unedited to work with as a base. Although I may not be able to do all photos I will do my best to accommodate everyone!
I know I'm still learning and I appreciate everyone who gives me feedback and take a chance with me as I hopefully get better. I may put up a points donation thing in the future if people start taking me up on this, but for now it's just for fun and experience (and of course the happiness of making pretty pictures)! If you know somebody who might be interested send them my way as well. I love talking with people and making new connections and I'm hoping to meet new deviants and grow over the next year. I guess that's it. Hope you all have a very Happy New Year!
