Advanced Photoshop Showcase by Ellyevans679 Advanced Photoshop Showcase by Ellyevans679
:wave: Hi friends

Here is my artwork featured in the latest Advanced Photoshop magazine, Issue 72, page 35, released in the UK yesterday.:woohoo:

They chose my digital work Danse Macabre [link] and at my request, they very kindly printed this link to the artwork here on dA, so that all the stock artists could be identified for copyright credits.

Here's what it said.

STUDENT SHOWCASE 2010
'It’s been a good year for digital art of all genres and styles, and that is certainly reflected in our annual Student Showcase feature. Now in its fifth year, 2010’s student artists maintain the previous high standards and we received a record amount of entries. Deciding on who should be included in this exciting feature is never easy, but we know you’re going to love the creative ideas and skills on show.'

Thank you Xenia. It feels quite surreal but yeah wonderful to have my art validated by professionals in their field. I have been drawing and painting fantasy stuff since I was a child and sometimes it can feel trivial and time wasting to be an artist in a culture where everything is valued by its commercial value :D :heart:

You are most welcome Elle, I can imagine how surreal it must be, and not just any mag either, the leading Photoshop magazine for Advanced work and professionals! I buy it myself when I can... but I can not quite say I am able to cope with the advanced stuff just yet! :)

I agree about the world being run by the commercial, you have to be published or sell to be successful...!? Almost to the end that the "creative" is not enough in itself.

:hug: :)

North coast - I wish (and look often) but at the moment I am on small acreage just outside the A.C.T. And what's the definition of Canberra? 60 square miles of land surrounded on all sides by reality!

You're now officially an inspiration! Your welcome to dA was warm and encouraging (thank you) and when I see where you are taking yourself I am pleased to have made the effort to step into the arena myself. Congratulations and exhortations for a brilliant future.

Hey Stu
Thanks, that is a lovely comment. I don't know why I have it in my head that you live in my beautiful part of the world, North Coast NSW, but here are a couple of links to my friends images, they may interest you. He makes art out of guitars and motorbikes! :D

Hey thanks Irene,
It will certainly help impress the professionals when seeking out work assignments. Fantasy art has not always been held with high esteem in 'artistic circles' yet I think this has/is constantly changing with the progression of digital art.

Love to you
:heart: Elle

Thanks Stagey. :tighthug:

It is cool and I feel lucky and honoured to be selected. But the little bit of self confidence I finally have in my art has come about from the encouragement I have received in this dA community from wonderful friends such as yourself. :heart:

I can feel a little visit to the newsagent might be on your walking trail today Mr Inquisitive :D :hug::iconeufrosis:
I could print it but that wouldn't be any fun:iconclownbounceplz:

You have obviously know idea what the newsagents are like in small town Ireland. Imagine a newsagent that carries 20 magazines, no, imagine a newsagent that carries 100 magazines. Between the usual women's mags, the football mags, the music mags, the solitary computer mag, the lads mags, the car mags, the knitting mags and the gamers mags do you really think I will find a copy of Advanced Photoshop? :rofl: You, I hope, will probably never realise how funny your suggestion is.
What about your hundreds of viewers and fans not to mention the two groupies who don't have access to Advanced Photoshop in their locale. I'm sure I'm not the only one. You can photoshop over the bit that reveals your age. :love:

In fact obviously I DO have an idea what it is like, living in the country as I do. I think one newsagent here stocks one copy that is always gone. I usually have to go to a store like Borders in a big mall when I visit the city to get my copy. In this instance I ordered one online. Picked up a couple of knitting mags while I was at it.
I have a second groupie? Oh my!:iconnananaplz:

For security reasons :iconparanoid-laplz: I refuse to buy anything online. Everything works out cheaper that way.
You really only have one groupie, the other one's a bit of a dead head :iconzombie-laplz:

So are you going to reveal all :iconchaoslaplz: or must your viewers minds continue to wallow in the tittilating hearsay and rumour that now surrounds this article.

Yes Phil, my whole life I have carried a sense that being an artist is a trivial pleasure, not a valid pursuit unless it is for a consumer product.

It is so wonderful to share this news with my loving dA friends who understand this feeling and who create for the love and expression it brings. Thank you :huggle:
