Project Educate: Introduction to PapercuttingHello and welcome to the Papercutting 101.Project Educate: Introduction to Papercutting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Please come with me and let me show you why paper is still one of the most versatile medium to work with even in this digital age.
1.What is it?
Papercutting is the art of cutting design out from paper. It is considered one of the oldest forms of art but it has developed independently all across the globe. People from all over the world have independently discovered how versatile and rewarding it is to work with paper and they have developed their own distinct styles.
The oldest surviving paper cut out is a symmetrical circle from the 6th Century found in China. The category “papercutting and scherenschnitte” was opened on dA in 2010. It is at once one of the oldest and newest forms of art around the block!
2.What kinds of papercutting are out there?
Around the globe there are a number of traditional type

How we've met Tom HiddlestonYesterday was incredible. Now it almost feels like it didn't happen to us at all. But let's start at the beginning.How we've met Tom Hiddleston3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On Tuesday evening a friend of ours found out that Tom's working on the new Jarmusch film around here and asked if we'd like to go look for him. Not quite believing we had an actual chance to meet him, we still agreed. I mean, nothing to lose and everything to gain, so why not?
Next day, on Wednesday, we had an adventurous trip to the studios, because naturally, public transport never works the way it should and when travelling to an unknown location you'll never arrive at your destination point straight away.
But after running around in the terribly hot weather of that day for around an hour, our trio was finally there!
We met a few other girls who waited in front of the studio complex gates, unsurprisingly, for the same reason and even encountered an old friend of ours we haven't seen for five years.
We weren't lucky on that day, though. After asking around for a bit, i

How to create your own SketchbookA Sketchbook is a special notebook to draw in. Many current and previous artists uch as Leonardo Da Vinci, have their own Sketchbook as a diary to write down their thoughts, ideas and experiences, whatever comes to mind. Also they might use a sketchbook to note down instructions or important facts about art. However, this 'bought' sketchbook can be very expensive and sometimes difficult to get in stores.How to create your own Sketchbook2 months ago in Personal More Like This
There is however, an alternative to having your own sketchbook without buying it. This alternative is, of course, to create your own sketchbook to your style and your taste. This involves a little work but is great for being part of your artistic growth and development. Also you can save money because the materials are not as expensive as buying a ready made sketchbook in a store. You can spend even less if some of the materials could already be found in your home.
Are you ready to start ? Follow my instructions and you will have your own sketchbook. It's worth a try!

Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.
What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them toda

Love love love~I love Khita, I love him ever so much. And when I think it's not possible to love him anymore than I already do.. it happens~ He's the most amazing man I've ever met, and I am certain that he is my other half. I'm most certain he's my soulmate. I feel like he completes me (as cheesy as it sounds) I really do. Not to mention it feels like we've known each other for forever, which I'm sure we have, in many past lives. Because it was destined to be so. I think no matter what we'll find one another.Love love love~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We complete each others thoughts, sentences, etc. We share the same interests, we express ourselves fully to one another without hesitation and we accept everything. It's almost scary how similar we really are. And I am forever grateful to have him in my life. I don't think I'd amount much to anything without him~
'Love' is the name given to an expression, feeling, or action, that, in short.. is an intense feeling of deep affection.
I believe that I feel more than love for him. I thi

the importance of failingsOften times i see many artists on all levels expressing their expectations from their current progress and seeing it as they fail. They feel this way because the type of level that is set is not only high but its constantly changing to grow higher even as they are progressing passed levels of artistic skills.the importance of failings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Imagine a horse rider holding a fishing pole with sugar(your artistic level you want to reach) by the end of the string. And you the artist is the horse pursuing it.You are progressing forward but your goal is also being set higher as you progress.
And of course you will never ever reach the level that is constantly changing and i think this is an idea that every eager and striving artist should be comfortable with. To be comfortable with failing.This is not to say that you wont reach new levels , because you will.The levels you set up when you started out are much lower then the levels you set in your current phase.
The tough part is of course to stay on trac

For the beginning an enigma image: let your imagination fly!
Fantasize a bit, what this new Dea Vivente is going to look like? Probably, she will stay like this, but maybe you will not recognize her when she is a heroine of new photographs.
Right now I'll show you the results of high firing the doll's parts put together. The new porcelain that the girls are cast from is beautiful flesh toned, shining a bit and even shimmering. I'm glad that Dea Vivente are going to become even better.
I like the look of fired porcelain this is yet the "blank canvas" meant for picturing a painting.
And now some words about painting.
In doll sphere, toning the parts of body is called "blushing", and this is

Some of you already know that I'm mexican and proud, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very important tradition for me. While it is also celebrated in other parts of Latin America I am only familiar with the traditions we have here, so I'm really sorry for not being able to represent everyone But feel free to leave me a comment with your own traditions, I would love to read about them
In case anyone is interested some years ago I published a more or less detailed explanation on ofrendas (offerings) complete with photos. Also, I shall warn you that I consider myself a purist, and while I appreciate everyone's efforts to make art inspired by Dia de los Muertos there's some things that simply don't go with the spirit of this date, and I won't include them in this feature... for exa

1. All Members:
- When you upload your art to dA, select the proper category. ex. When a member submits a drawing to our Digital Art folder, but we see that it's in dA's Traditional Art category, we will ALWAYS question that.
2. Digital and Traditional Artists:
- List the media/tools/programs and reference image links you used to create your art in your description. This is a practice of Pros, and it helps us to ascertain that your art is submitted to the proper folder.
- If your art is a photograph, and you did any editing besides tweaking, or BW/Sepia conversion then we will probably consider it a photo-manipulation. This includes selective de-coloration. Submit it to our Digital Art folder.

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
