I'm sure you're open enough to understand that Santa doesn't exist. I'm returning your nose hair clippers to you, but I'll keep the oil tank from your car as a memory. You should also know that I Always wanted to break your legs and I'm off to lead a new life as a lemon.

Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!

Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

What is photomanipulation?
The official definition of "photomanipulation" (PM), according to deviantART, is: an image that is composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new. This definition has been very nicely analyzed and distinguished from other genres here, here, and here, but let's talk briefly about the three main components o

"Hey I love what you're doing! I don't want to pay for it though. Tell me how to do it so I can try myself."
If I had a shop you wouldn't come into it and ask for all my secrets, would you? The same applies here. Don't get butthurt when I give you a grumpy rebuke - this is my living!
1. How do you attach the fimo to the fur?
I glue it on with hot glue or bostik multi-purpose. Some artists like to make holes in the sculpt and sew it on.
2. How do you dye fake fur?
You CAN'T! It's impoooosiblleeeee. I tried masses of "confirmed" techniques, involving messy and sometimes stinky dyes, and none of them really worked. The best way I have found is to use dylon fabric paints and just brush them with a nail brush. Here's a video tutorial that is along the same lines, although I wouldn't use acrylic paint personally: http://youtu.be/RPA8Y6GcD6E My favourite method is to buy fabric in the right colour

How to make BJDs?Recently I'm asked often to teach people how to make BJDs. So I decided to put all the info in one place so I could give only one link.How to make BJDs?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
BJD (Ball-jointed doll) is a complex creation that consists of many parts and is strung with elastic. The joints are based on the balls (spheres) mostly or on their modifications. Good BJD in my opinion is not only properly stylized but also has a well thought-out jointing system that allows to hold a wide range of poses. Every type of joint serves a certain purpose.
BJD construction requires a lot of research: trial and error or usage of free knowledge from the open sources. So here the links list goes:
* Aimi-doll, a very good tutorial in Japanese: making a BJD from the scratch. http://www.aimi-doll.com/howto/
Many artists started from there, me included. I use this method of sculpting the head while making realistic BJD heads that have a real or 3D prototype.

1. Swords - First of all, I have to point out that swords were for rich people. The nobility could afford to raw materials for swords, and afford to pay a blacksmith to make one. If you were a soldier, mercenary, man-at-arms, or what-have-you: you got your sword from someone richer than you in a feudal system. If you were a peasant or a serf: forget it! There were laws in Europe against low-class schmucks carrying blades, and being caught with one would be grounds for death, because it probably meant you were planning on overthrowing your lord or something. Swords are specifically a weapon of war, unlike spears or bows, so don't kid your reader with the idea that a sword would be use

I know of two places you can buy eyes.

Personally I use a 10-14mm eye for my dolls. That is a standard size for birds, amphibians, some mammals and dolls so it's quite a common size to find.
You can also make your own if you have the time or inclination. You need to make a mould of a marble or something similar using platinum silicone, then when the silicone has cured you pour in crystal clear resin. You must use platinum silicone as tin silicone (RTV - room temperature vulcanization) silicone will inhibit the cure of the resin and it will stay tacky forever. You can paint the back of the resin cabochon with acrylics, inks, watercolours or
Testing Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!I've been really curious about this tecnique shared by Shacchan - see this journal for the instructions - and finally today I've managed to give it a tryTesting Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!
I mixed some light brown clay with about an half of water and an half of Fimo liquid, until I got a creamy thing (as Shacchan explained, it should look like a glaze). Then, I added the baking powder to the clay, proportion as shown, and mixed them:
I made a baking tin with an aluminium foil (I didn't have anything to wrap the aluminium around, that's why it looks so weird! ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! ). I baked for about 10 minutes.
This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good
The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinkin
5 Tips On Fantasy ReligionsI'm not looking for a religious discussion. If someone starts one, I will rip your face off and block your comments.5 Tips On Fantasy Religions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. How involved a deity is affects religion. At least in fantasy, anyway. Now of course there are plenty of fantasy religions that don't bother to clear up whether a god actually exists, and the driving elements of the story or more about religion and power rather than spirituality. So considering whether god or gods actually really do exist at all in your story is a perfectly cromulent question. However, if a god does exist, and is constantly involved in the lives and well-being of its worshipers, enemies or non-believers might think twice before some serious smiting ensues. For that matter, followers of an attentive god might watch their mouths. (Look at the Greek Gods and what they did for slights!) A god may be protective, but that doesn't necessarily mean benevolent. In fact, a god or gods may have the att

5 Tips on Creating Dynamic Character1. Start with a concept. This is how most of my characters start, and they usually begin with two or three word descriptors. "Demon stallion" or "spoiled dragon prince" or "psychic dolphin". Characters as this stage are more anima than anything; they are forces at play in the primordial soup of story. When an idea is this new, I try not to focus on it too much. Ideas need time to germinate, and I've found myself disappointed in times past when the potential of the character was so much more exciting than the concrete reality of what they became. Since during this time I'm developing plot and main conflict, I try to move characters around and see who I gravitate towards. This helps story and character grow organically. It's during this time that I try and determine what the character struggles with, the yin and yang of their internal difficulty. For example, I was recently asked to come up with a character for an urban fantasy roleplay, with no real details about th5 Tips on Creating Dynamic Character2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."

RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!Ok so it seems I'll have to do that too.RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll keep it simple : read the title.
I've been doing a bit of nude photography these last months and even though the vast majority of the people who visited, faved and commented my photos were totally fine, there's always a small fraction of weirdos/perverts/wathever and that really pisses me off.
I'll say that once : nude/erotic photography is not porn and models are not objects (and that also applies for porn models by the way) !
so everyone have to BEHAVE PROPERLY and RESPECT THE MODELS
you can act as a dickhead with me, attack me, critique me, send me weird messages, BUT... one more time... Don't touch the models.
If you want to write some kind of pervert comment, keep in mind that nor the model, nor the photographer, nor even the people who truly appreciate the photo will like your comment.
You want porn ? Fine. There are plenty of website for that on the net, or even photo galleries here on dA that are more about porn than about nude. Use
Progress!Lo and behold, an update!Progress!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't already follow me on my personal account, we are slowly moving forward again. I'm working with one of my amazing storyboard artists to put together a teaser to get everyone excited again and hopefully start recruiting again. Until the teaser comes out as PROOF that we are still working on this, I won't be accepting any offers. People have been falling through the cracks since we got into the Backgrounds stage so I'm hoping this teaser will renew everyone's faith in this project and work a little harder to finally get it completed after so long.
Need I remind you, I DO still have Dante Basco's (aka ZUKO) voice recordings for this. I REALLY don't want to let him down.
In the meantime, keep up hope and I'll update when we get somewhere!

I'm way behind in PnF episodes for season three. I blame school and the considerable lack of PnFness in some of the recent ones. 0.0 I may buy the seasons off itunes US one of these days, though. That way, it makes it easier for me to watch them and not panic about bad quality.
