EXTENDED DEADLINE - Contest: Devil in the Details
We are extending the deadline for the Devil in the Details contest to 15 MAY 2016. With prizes this big, we really want to see some (more) great entries. However, please, please, please pay attention to our THEME. "Devil" does not mean that theme has to be bad or negative. We are saying that the meaning of your deviation should be brought out by the details of your composition. It can be funny, ironic, joyful, scary, or mysterious. It can be anything you want, but the goal of the contest is to get you to tell a story with your art. The story should unfold according to how you lay out the details in your deviation. So, for example, perhaps a cat is hunting mice, and there are mice cleverly hidden in the deviation. THIS IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE. We are looking for good quality composition (clever use of space).
If you have already submitted a deviation to the contest and you want to change it, let us kn

Contest: The New Millennium - Deadline Extended!Update:
Unfortunately, despite the big prizes we didn't receive many entries so far. We want to give you a little more time, hoping that during the extension inspiration will strike you!
That means the contest will be extended for one month, the new deadline being July 24!
Don't hesitate to give this beautiful theme a go!
Recently our group CRPhotomanipulation reached the milestone of 2000 members. We would like to celebrate the occasion by hosting a contest in tribute to this magic number.
The contest theme is
The New Millennium
The theme clearly calls for science fiction entries, but it can stand for many things:
What do you associate with the year 2000? If you are old enough, what expectations did you have of the new millennium when you were young? Do you have any specific childhood memories?
On the other hand, where do you see us and our Earth in the year 3000? Will ou
All the images uploaded here (apart from everything in my Artwork and Photos Folders) are stock, to be used for PHOTO-MANIPULATION purposes and are free to use. You do NOT need my permission to use them in your manips or to post your work outside DA. Prints on DA are absolutely fine. I am also very happy for them to be used as references for traditional artists.
Do NOT just apply a filter to them, or a gradient layer, or mirror them - THAT is not photo-manipulation as we understand it here on DeviantART, I am perfectly capable of doing that myself (see my Artwork Folder), be imaginative.
If you use my stock you MUST credit me by name and link back to the stock via a clickable URL, this is non-negotiable and if you cannot do this, do NOT use my stock. You MUST notify me that you have used my stock (via comment on my Profile or on the photo you have used - please do not note me as it has been pointed out that DA cannot access my notes for verification of notification).
It has come to my attention recently that a lot of people are posting their manipulations on 500px and other sites without crediting me, I reiterate, if you cannot be bothered to credit me and link back to my photo - DO NOT USE my stock. This stock is offered up for free and the way you pay me is to credit me and link back to me. Do NOT claim that my photos are yours in any shape or form and if I find that you are misrepresenting your manipulations as made from your own photos I WILL DMCA the artwork. If there are any special reasons why you cannot link back to me you MUST notify me and ask for permission.
Do NOT repost my stock anywhere and claim it as yours - these stocks are produced entirely from my own photographs and are copyrighted, they are NOT to be uploaded to Wallpaper sites and don't hotlink to them from any other site. If you link to them I will make a formal complaint and issue a DMCA notice. DO NOT include my photos or PNGs in any scrapbooking kits - they are here for reference and manipulations purposes and I regard this as theft and a violation of my copyright. Do NOT make textures with my stock, Do NOT add any of my stock photos to a Stock Pack.
Do not create PNGs from my stock - anyone who would like to share a PNG they have created for a manip from my stock - feel free to send it back to me for publishing.
If you are going to use my stock in anything commercial I require notification via a note or email.
The same rules apply to my brushes - totally unrestricted - do not upload them to any other site or hotlink to them. I don't mind if you link to the deviation from your website but no hotlinks.
Do not use my stock in conjunction with copyrighted material (i.e. material that is not offered as stock - this includes celebrity photos and images that you found on Google, Pinterest, Tumblr, Weheartit, Shadowplay, Illegal Stock Sites like mystockphoto.com or someone's blog). Do NOT use my images as previews for PSD colouring where the PSD file includes the original image (even with your colouring applied). You may use my stock for tutorials but you may NOT include my photo as part of the turorial either as-is or via a PSD layer, you must inform me if you have used my stock in a tutorial and you must credit and link back to my photo via a clickable URL from your tuorial.
You MAY share my photos via the Share buttons i.e. so that the post links back directly to my photo but I still require a credit line.
All these rules apply to any of my stock that I sell as Premium Content.
I reserve the right to ban any person from using my stock - I offer it free of charge but it doesn't mean it isn't copyrighted becasue it is. IF I BLOCK YOU THAT MEANS YOU ARE BANNED FROM USING MY STOCK - DO NOT USE ANYTHING YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY DOWNLOADED AND IF I FIND ANY UNAUTHORISED USEAGE I WILL ASK FOR YOUR ART TO BE TAKEN DOWN.
If you have any other questions about usage, drop me a note or an email

I'd like to thank all those people who fav my work - due to time pressure I can't say thank you to you all, but it is truly appreciated. If you comment you will always get a reply
If this reads badly i.e. harshly I apologise - it conforms to the policy laid down by DeviantArt - i.e. legalise should not be polite, you can see the Journal here: evelivesey.deviantart.com/jour…
