What are BALL JOINTED DOLLS ( BJD ) ?
The ball-jointed doll is dolls that is articulated with ball and socket joints.
These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic.

Sad NewsWorst week of my life :cSad News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A very aggressive URI took 3 of my babies away from me (I had already lost one 2 weeks ago)
I'm not very good at goodbyes in general but losing 3 in one weekend was too much (4 in a fortnight.) Anyone who knows me well, will know how much I love my piggies. Piggies are prey animals and hide their symptoms until their final stages. I spent my weekend trying to save everyone I could but I was too late.
RIP Twinkie, Fairy, Gucci and Jube.
I miss you so much already :c
I have 3 piggies left, all deemed incredibly healthy by the vet and for that I am thankful. I honestly thought I was going to lose them all.
Yuki, Pan-pan and Popple are still with me and we're mourning the loss of our friends together
I don't think i'll be around any time soon. If you need me, you know where to find me.
See you at the rainbow bridge girls.

Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

It's that time of year again, and for the first time in quite a few years, I'll be hosting another Secret Santa event (:
As with most secret santa events, you'll be getting a randomly assigned person to draw for! I would like to get at least 10 participants in order for the event to take place; that way there's at least some "mystery" as to who your Santa is ;.)
And, I may be doing some art trades as well to make up for missing event sign-ups, so feel free to ask about those, too (:

Why you feature stolen work?!?!Lately there seem to have been a few myths flying around in particular with regards to how we as Community Volunteers, give Daily Deviations. Many people seem to think that we sit at our desks in dark little rooms and let out evil laughter whilst we purposefully feature stolen work. The dark rooms and laughter - well I can't say yes or no on that one! But I can promise you it's not our intent to give exposure to people who have stolen work. I recently featured a piece of work that turned out to be stolen. However I went into extensive conversations with the artist before I featured it, and with added metadata and dates, it's difficult to know where to draw the line. I've given people the benefit of the doubt before - and it's worked out nicely as their work has been legitimate. Below are some comments I have seen being thrown around the past few days - and hopefully an attempt to bust the myth.Why you feature stolen work?!?!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Health tips for artistsI just wanted to write down some little reminders. You may find this article a touch twee, but trust me, they're all useful.Health tips for artists4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Blood circulation is good for you.
Try to move a little around. If you're starting to work, work from home, or are just not a sports guy, you'll notice things like back aches or shoulder pains. Sitting in a chair eight hours a day is bad enough, but I'm assuming you're doing art for the love of it, and will continue to sit and create after work. You don't have to run a marathon every day, but stand up and move yourself every once in a while. If you say you don't have the time, think about how much those pesky back aches distract you from working.
Your eyes are very important.
If you're not already wearing glasses, chances are you might need them when your workspace is set up badly. Drink enough. Your eyes are mostly water, and need lots of replacement. Three litres a day are a rule of thumb for drinking - you'll notice the differ

Traditional and Digital Mixed MediaFix That Miscat! is a series of articles aiming to help you distinguish between galleries that are commonly confused or abused in the category system here on deviantART. In this occasion we'll talk about Mixed Media, both Traditional and Digital.Traditional and Digital Mixed Media2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Mixed Media within deviantArt refers to artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed. For example, a drawing that combines color pencils, watercolors and inks in the same canvas.
To be considered as Mixed Media, an artwork needs to combine 2 or more traditional or digital mediums. However a big misconception is that Mixed Media refers only to artworks combining digital AND traditional and this is not entirely true. The combination can also be between traditional mediums only or digital mediums only and in fact, when you intend to submit to this category, you'll

FINAL - XMAS Poll Period * CLOSED:icontransparentplz:FINAL - XMAS Poll Period * CLOSED2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our POLL SYSTEM: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED of this period!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins a 6 months sub, our special Christmas prize.
Follow the RULES to VOTE...AND EVERYONE VOTING and ING THIS BLOG will enter a draw to win 100 . The participants may and should click the Favourite Button to
