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:

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 Tabs1 year 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!

The DeviantArt Hotel: Possible Reality?
Neotropolis by Draken413o
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

Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-ConThursday was the first full day of Comic-Con, and artists, cosplayers, and fans (oh, my!) strapped on their most comfortable Con Shoes and continued rocking out in San Diego. It was also the day of deviantART's first panel, "How-To: Motion Books," which was so inspiring, audience members nearly had to be physically removed from the premises because the conversations ended long after they took the microphones away.Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

Armitage Artbook ClosedOk, my little deviant darlings, I'm cracking my whip with to many extensions I'm wrapping up Richard's birthday artbook to get it to him on time for his birthday This has been the most trying and craziest summer ever, but it has given me an escape when I have needed it the most. I have enjoyed meeting everyone and I hope that next year I will be able to do this again. (I definitely came up with a better plan) So get your new pieces ready, we have one year lol, thank GodArmitage Artbook Closed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The book will not be coming to me, but is being sent directly to him from the company. I have just ran out of time and honestly it is way over budget and this will save me from having to pay to ship it again. There is no way I could take pictures of everyone's pages, it ended up being about 64, but I have took some of the beginning of the book on my computer screen, so not the best quality, but where everyone could see examples. I will "try" to add more soon. If you don't see your page come

Collection: MasksCollection: Masks3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

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

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.
