More exposure: Digital Spotlight

Thu Jan 22, 2015, 11:19 AM
Hey guys!

I would like to advertise a new group I am involved in: DigitalSpotlight 

The main goal of this group is to give underexposed high-quality art from the Photomanipulation and Digital Art categories more attention.

We will make sure not to be flooding your inbox with tons of new images everyday. Members are submitting their art to our favorites folder, from which the founders pick images to be featured in the group as well as on their personal pages. Yes, all the founders will also once a week feature a selection of images from the group in their journals/polls/etc.

Aside from quality we have a very strict requirement for all submissions: The number of favs on the deviation may not exceed 150 favs for photomanipulations and 500 favs for digital art. The idea really is to feature only underexposed art. You should not have to be popular for your art to be seen. :)

I hope you are interested now and I invite you to join our group. We are still in the warm-up phase but you can already become a member. There's really something for everyone, underexposed masters can get features, masters who are already popular will find only quality art in their inbox, and other aspiring artists will hopefully find inspiration as well.

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 a real 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!
