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:
Today I would like to introduce six of the best soft body doll makers here on dA! If you check out the Dolls, Plushies & Toys gallery, you will find an abundance of stunning works from a var
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
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-cecile2 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!

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

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
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-Con1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Sitting on the panel were spyed and techgnotic from deviantART, BenWolstenholme, LiamSharp, and nunyerbidniss from Madefire, and davegibbons, perhaps best-known for his collaboration with Alan Moore on "Watchmen."

Slowly, So Slowly A muffled cry took Zander from his book. He looked around wildly, and was on his feet in an instant when he heard a louder scream. A scream that sounded like his name. A scream that came from Aida's cabin. Maybe it wasn't practical for him to go to her, when Sky and Jace were both nearer, but he had never before been practical when Aida was concerned. He was out on the deck in a flash, the light in his cabin still on and the door swinging on its hinges because he didn't bother to shut it. Nothing in there held higher value to him than Aida's wellbeing.Slowly, So Slowly1 year ago in Personal More Like This
No one else had gone to her cabin. He rapped quickly on the door, praying something terrible hadn't happened.
"Aida?" he said hesitantly. "Did you just call me?"
She muttered something to herself from the inside, and then padded on bare feet—shoes made a very different sound—to throw her door open. Her eyes when they looked up at him were stra

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.

I just wanted to say my thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and/or participating in my small raffle with something cute or funny or brand new artists and artworks (who I still need explore in detail.) Though I had to work a lot on my birthday and over the weekend as well, because of an upcoming deadline, but I had a nice birthday with so many new artworks, jokes and cute things, which was left here on this journal. I was laughing-chuckling really hard time to time or was in awe seeing all new fantastic works, when I checked my DA profile on my phone. I think my boss was suspecting that something is going on, but couldn’t guess it. X D So thank you again. : D

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.
