Styling a doll, Awi's demon form babble..Suddenly I felt like writing a journal entry while I was painting Awi's scorpion tail and I was like woaaaah this is getting better than I expected so I wanted to.. share! haha I hope you don't mind my random things xD I did this kind of thing with Rony, posted some making of pics.Styling a doll, Awi's demon form babble..1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But yeah, I styled Awi some time ago like this:
Everything borrowed.. except the wig..
But recently Soom released a new doll with such gorgeous outfit, horns and hand parts so I decided to purchase them instantly because I saw AWI with those (in my mind...) and I'm going to give a whole demon warrior look to her... It was so awesome as I needed something new to her which would be somehow "fantasy" and gothic style at the same time with RED color like I planned.
She's getting these weird (imo.. quite gore looking) demon horns. I will blush them to look more realistic. Some shading. Ugh.. creepiness
This outfit (yes I edited it, Soom's pi

Guide: How to Avoid Buying a Recast.Hello dAGuide: How to Avoid Buying a Recast.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure many active people in the community are already aware of the fact that there has been a sudden and shocking influx of recast dolls.
recently received a doll that she bought on the secondary market. To her horror, it arrived with some irregularities and soon identified it as a recast head.
Please be extra cautious when purchasing second hand dolls (particularly Volks!) and always get advice if you are unsure. The members of the Volks appreciation thread on DoA were most helpful and I'm sure they would be willing to lend their educated eyes to you.
If you are hunting for Volks dolls, here are a few tips for when you are looking on the secondary market;
(This may apply to other companies dolls too but I am mainly focussing on volks here.)
1) Always ask for the code engraved in the plate on the back of the head.
- While this won't protect you from all recasts (some have been known to replicate them) it will definitely help as recasters o

*head shake* come on DA...Can we all just appreciate art please?*head shake* come on DA...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately I feel this site isnt about art anymore, I KNOW "KIM YOU'VE SAID THIS A THOUSAND TIMES ALREADY"
WELL maybe i need to do it again so it gets the point across because regardless I still see porn on the front page each day and I find this not okay. What happened to this site? I pour my heart and soul into something and it gets nothing (just to clarify im not offended) but its sad, either this hobby, or DA has become shallow. I feel the only thing we (as a doll owner? or others?) only want to see boy dolls dressed up as girls. I'm SO sorry im not trying to hurt anyone with this, or offend, but they get the most attention afterall. And why? Why is it so interesting? I've been guilty of doing the same thing, I know. But I changed and grew up a little...
I know this is just my opinion so dont be mad or feel directed too please.
I like myself some girly boy dolls as well from time to time. But only just that!?
Thats THE trend right now,
Werewolf pee.So Angie-Chan070707 and I were watching the Twilight Eclipse Rifftrax and I got to thinking. If you haven't seen Twilight, the werewolves aren't typical werewolves as much as they're just really fucking big wolves. That's pretty much it. Bear size wolves. Or something. They're big and wolfy.Werewolf pee.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I was thinking, what if one of them had to pee when they were in werewolf mode, but didn't do it before they switched back? The ginormous wolf bladder has to be bigger than a human bladder. So what happens? Does it explode? Does he just pee himself? Do they have to make a point to pee before turning back into a human, sort of like how you have to make sure you pee before a road trip.
THESE ARE THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS!
But Laura told me I was thinking too hard.

Flash of Lightning, Resonant Thunder:icontechgnotic:Flash of Lightning, Resonant Thunder4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem
