Today's Special is all about Soft Body Dolls.
What is a Soft Body Doll?
Soft body dolls are constructed from fabrics and enhanced with details made from clay, polymer clay, resin or other more solid materials. Some of these creations have sculpted faces and hands/paws or other such details.
Here is an example of fantastic soft body dolls to be found in the Dolls, Plushies & Toys gallery:

PE Interview with =agnes-cecileSilvia is, without any doubt, one of the most marking figures of this site. Many thousands love her works and some artists consider her to be the role model of their artistic life. Instead of rambling about how she is a popular figure of this site, i decided to show you what other people think of her.PE Interview with =agnes-cecile3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Green-EyedGhost says: "Her art is inspiring, emotional, brilliant, incredible, indescribable. Her every single work is what actually can be called art. She always inspires me, she is the most amazing artist I've ever seen in my life!"
airheadOMer completes: "...she has a brilliant and copious use of color. All her work is very intricate and lavish while remaining fairly luminous and simple. It has a wonderful flow to it and is, basically, quite beautiful. She has ineffable talent and her work shows that."
With this being said, let's see what agnes-cecile has to say!

The New Profile TabsAs part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!The New Profile Tabs2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.
In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!

Dodge Dart Contest WinnersThe designers at Chrysler had some tough decisions to make. The semi-finalists in both of the Digital and Traditional categories presented a wide variety of approaches and techniques all inspired by the new Dodge Dart. The three winners for Digital and Traditional were selected after much deliberation and consideration. They will soon be on display in the lobby of the Dodge-Chrysler headquarters.Dodge Dart Contest Winners3 years ago in Official DeviantArt Contests More Like This

Brothers Grimm - contest #2This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.Brothers Grimm - contest #23 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
To be more specific, it is about their tales, but there is no objection to draw the brothers themselves. The tales you may find at grimmstories.com, if you do not have the book, of course. Pick the one you like and illustrate it or - if you are a writter or poet - you may write your version or just something that would be in a noticeable relation with one of the stories. Remember, it must fit the group rules.
No new deviation is required. Though, a new one would be much more welcomed. There will not be any separated contest folder, so please just submit your entries into the correct folders, as usual, and post a link to your deviation in a comment under this announcement. Then I will edit this entry and your piece will be featured here, so everybody could see how awesome things you can do.
The Guardian's Child (Jack Frost x Reader) Part 1First time I've done this before so go easy on me :3The Guardian's Child (Jack Frost x Reader) Part 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
You looked around, nothing was close to what it looked like at your house.. All there was were hummingbirds and eggs.. Everywhere. A voice in your head told you not to touch anything, but you couldn't resist the colored chocolate eggs and feathers. You were always the creative one at your school and in your family. You started to craft things with the feathers and placed an egg at the top. You were suck in this jungle cove. There was no possible way to climb it, because of your sprained ankle. You were running laps as you got run into by someone, you had forgotten about that pain, but when you started to walk you could feel it. So you sat on the grassy ground and looked around, you smiled. You were a loner most of the time, because you didn't like the things girls at you school did. You had gotten used to it and liked being alone. You're eyes started to soften as you saw a lick of golden sand cross your face. You drifted in

Hotel for DeviantDreamers?
Ever wondered what a hotel designed by the artists of DevianArt might look like? Probably something like the new Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, one of Beijing, China’s many newly constructed state-of-the-art luxury lodgings.
Imagine this: Spanning 18,075 square meters, the exterior glass surface is covered by more than 10,000 glass panels. The panels are angled so that the top portion of the building reflects the color of the sky, the middle reflects nearby Yanshan Mountain an
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

What is your Drawing Skill Level?All of the images featured in this article come from archives of my own work so not to impose unwanted criticism. The intention of this article is not to categorize artists, but to categorize similarities of different skill levels of representational drawing. Please also note that skill level in representational drawing does not equate to the worth of an artist's creative ability. But skill in representational drawing is very important to have in a lot of art disciplines. It is a skill that takes a lifetime to learn. Skill does not come from talent. Instead, talent affects the perseverance, discipline, and desire of the individual to develop skill.What is your Drawing Skill Level?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is Representational Drawing? Representational drawing is a fancy way of saying trying to re-create something you see in real life on paper (or whatever you are drawing on). When we turn about 10 or 11 years old, or brains begin to develop a different perception of visual space than what we could understand before in the earlier y

Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop

"I Can't Draw""....I'm afraid other kids are gonna make fun of my drawing because I'm not good at it.""I Can't Draw"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
....said a fourth grade student to me last week at an Elementary school during my character design lesson. The little boy's comment to me about how worried he was about not being able to accurately represent what he wanted to on paper made me stop and think about something our society sort of imposes on our artists.
Since when did skill in drawing = how good of an artist you are?
I'd like to know.
Of course, we all know drawing is a fundamental skill in which every "artist" is expected to understand the Elements and Principles of Art and Design with because these elements and principles translate to ALL forms of visual art.
LETS STEP BACK AND THINK.........
Think of Art Mediums like Musical Instruments.
Think of Drawing as the Piano.
It's the instrument that most people develop an understanding of Music Theory to begin with.
But what if you picked up a guitar first instead of a piano-- and y

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where
