Cost of Producing a DollI read a lot of people justifying the fact that they bought recasted dolls by complaining about how expensive BJDs are. So I decided I'd try to estimate the cost of making those dolls.Cost of Producing a Doll1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
For the sake of the argument, I purposely used the average or lower estimates of the expenses those companies face, but I apologize in advance in case my numbers are off. I don't speak korean, so I had to roam through english and french websites to find my informations (also math isn't my strong point). I still think this gives a rough idea.
So I took the example of Fairyland, which is one of the most recasted companies. They're based in Seoul, South Korea.
I'll now assume there is at the very least a company president, a (3D or otherwise) sculptor, a marketing manager and a webdesigner. I'm petty much sure their team is larger, but let's assume the company only have four salaries to pay each month.
The average South Korea's gross wage is around 3000$ per month, around 12,5$ per hour.
3000 x 4 = 12000$

Louie Schwartzberg has made it his life’s mission to use his cinematic artistry to raise the alarm for public awareness of the dire situation we are facing in the possible collapse of our taken-for-granted natural resources. The “colony collapse disorder” currently decimating our honeybees was the prompt for Louie’s new movie, Wings of Life, which at it's essence, is a love story that feeds the earth.

Le soap opera, now is superior orderWhile my lovely creative friends are plunging into the NaNoWriMo spirit, I have decided to review the stories that I already have. The majority of them is centered round the unlikely, half-comical, half-sappy couple, Ondolemar/Kiara (do not read further if you are against anything and everything 'unrealistic'). As I am not too much of a writer, at least in terms of discipline, I cough up little snippets whenever I'm inspired – which results in a horrible mess. I have finally found time to arrange the darn thing in chronological order.Le soap opera, now is superior order9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Hello people! I finally made up my mind and I decided it's the time for a little contest!
Theme Here you are going to have 2 options. First, and the one that I prefer, is to draw my 2 Avatar the last airbender OC's (this option has also 2 other options, you can draw them together or you can draw only one of them), Mia and Chan. The second option is to draw my other OC's Yumi and Ryu. Here is a little thing, Ryu has no design yet, and you'll have to create it, and here you have to draw them together. Only one entry per person
Note: You'll have to draw them in the Avatar universe, you can draw them in their usual clothes or you can design new ones, but all has to be in the Avatar universe.
Medium Traditional, Digital or Mixed

The Pied Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper, we have a village overrun with rats. A man arrives dressed in clothes of pied (a patchwork of colors) and offers to rid the town of the vermin. The villagers agree to pay a vast sum of money if the piper can do it – and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment – the villagers won't cough up so the Pied Piper decides to rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, the piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children to a river

Marriage Under God (Video)"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost" (2 Corinthians 4:3).Marriage Under God (Video)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now that homosexuals are able to wed, the definition of marriage is up for grabs. A man or woman can argue to marry a beast, a child (as it is in most third world countries) a car, or anything. Now we see why there is such an act called the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), that is currently hanging on by a thread. DOMA was created to keep marriage as it is, and to obliterate the thought of unethical marriages. Marriage, by its true definition, is the union between man and woman just as the word of God confirms in Ephesians 5:31, "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh". We see why marriage should be the union of man and woman, too. God designed man and woman to couple, ultimately closing the gap between the sexes through a covenant, a partnership of trust, love, and God.
Any other form of marriage is obsolete. With th
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and overthinking3 days ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success

You obviously love to create, you do it often and now the time has come when you realize that this is no fling, this is something you would want to do for the whole life. You can learn a lot about techniques from numerous sources, you can find the right audience on the internet but there is one thing nobody can help you with but yourself - how to gain a specific style of your own?
What is a personal painting style?
- It's an identifiable style that enables the viewer to determine that the artwork was done by you
- In some cases, your style can be viewed as an extension of your personality
How can one develop it?
- Developing your style takes time, time and time once again. Don't have the time? No style for you!
- It's not acquirable in an art class. While it can be helpful to study by an assistance of someone who's m

The world of crafting is fascinating and never ending. We have been crafting since the first human molded some mud into a pot, and a seemingly endless list of crafts has been created since. Some crafts are very well known, and you have probably dabbled a bit into them yourself... but some of them are a lot less known. I put some examples together, please enjoy them and leave a comment below letting us know how many of them you already knew if you know any unknown crafts, feel free to share them with us!

Note: These are NOT totally obscure crafts that are only practiced in remote places of the world or that require specialized equipment, I chose crafts that should be easy enough to pick up but not a lot of people are doing.

What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are
