Stepping down...

Fri Jan 13, 2017, 6:30 AM
Treasure Cove by ErikShoemaker

Hi everyone!

Some have already noticed - I stepped down from the Photomanip CV position two days ago because I simply didn't have the time to do it properly anymore.
Even though it's about to get better next month, I thought it was unfair to make people wait in line who are eager and motivated to do something good for the community.

I must say I loved the job as well as working with the team and I made a lot of new friends. I see a lot of things on DA from a different perspective now and I'm grateful for the opportunity I was given.

On the other hand, I am now looking forward to have time to create my own art again. And there's something peaceful about not looking at every image critically wondering whether it could be a potential DD candidate. :lol:

That also means I cannot set DDs anymore, so if you have photomanip DD suggestions, please send them to Moonbeam13 until the next CV is chosen.

Thanks a lot!

Journal History


Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hey everyone.
My name is Erik and I am a Photoshop hobbyist from Germany. I have started practicing Digital Art around 2005 and since then I have come to love the genres of Photomanipulation, Space Art and Matte Painting.

In the past I have pursued a digital art career more seriously, joining up several renowned art collectives such as Depthcore, SlashThree and EvokeOne.
Besides, my work has been published in various books and magazines, among them the official Advanced Photoshop Magazine, The Book of Creation and even Ballistic: Exposé.

By now I have another job and practice digital art solely as a hobby. So no use to ask me about commissions.

Thank you for your interest in my page!

:D glad to know. I've been applying for a while for Fan Art, but have yet to be chosen. But seeing what the CVs have done to keep the community alive makes me smile.
