Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

Wouldn't it be nice if we could achieve the goals that we are working towards more quickly?
The world is speeding up all around us, and thankfully we're able to speed up as well and get more of what we want in less time. Here's some tips that will help you become the artist that you want to be more quickly.
Don't make mistakes - gain experience...
When you are learning if you think too critically of your work it may cause your brain some discomfort. The brain likes to succeed so when you don't quite get the results that you were aiming for, with the wrong attitude it can cause you some distress. Instead of looking at these attempts as 'failures,' you should see them always as opportunities to grow and gain experience.
The problem with looking at a work as a 'failure' is that it won't be too long u

Frequently Asked QuestionsI get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of youFrequently Asked Questions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a

It will be easy to find and easy for people to use as they like.
Having many followers, its very tempting for others to use me to get seen, which I gess isnt much of a problem as long as people dont do it on my art or front page. So thats why im making this for those who might find it usefull.
xD I dont even know if this will even work, but it doesnt hurt to try.
So have fun sharing stuff with eachother and discovering new artists or friends or watchers or snails.

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury

"Micheal Jackson was a child molester"
I've been seeing it on his videos, and it sickened me. In every damn way, All of these insults towards a great man. A great singer, one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
The child CONFESSED that his father made him say that micheal jackson molested/raped him for money, and maybe to ruin the mans reputation.
I've had enough. And you know why?
Because one of my own damn friends said it, like it was /nothing/ too.
Even if Micheal Jackson /did/ Molest Children, why would they say it like it was nothing? Like it was some sort of funny joke? Because it's not. Sexual Abuse towards children is not funny, and should not be taken lightly.
This conversation was brought up, because I said I Was listening to Micheal Jackson's Music. I have the /worst/ feeling in my gut now.
Micheal Jackson did not deserve any of the ridicule he got because of that dumb fuck trying to get money ou

Saturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.
Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin
Everything about LAZES!!!A journal for those ones who watch me for Lazes... Or for those who just like Lazes.Everything about LAZES!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A little anouncement. Laze icons are moved from my front page to this journal. I will update this journal when new Lazes will appear on DeviantArt.
F.A.Q. What's "Laze"?
Lazes are cute cat icons. Many people say that they're taken from a character called Chiyo's Dad from anime "Azumanga Diaoh". Personally, I'm indifferrent to this anime at all and I'm just in love with those cats on icons. And I like to collect them.
How you can help to improve Laze icon movement on DeviantArt
Way First If you know some Lazy Cats which I don't know, please, tell me about them and I'll be very glad. (: Thanks.
Way Second See those Laze emotes, choose the one you like best (+ which doesn't exist on DA yet) and create a PLZ account w

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc
