ManipAcademy #17: The Pen Tool And Telling A StoryAbbeyMarie
Written by KingaBritschgi
So far in this wonderful series there have been lots of great tutorials, pieces of information & advice for anyone who would like to perfect their photomanipulation/digital art skills.

Myths and legends Contest OpenedWho hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?Curvy-tribal
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.
