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
To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....A few questions to ask yourself first.To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A. Do you value your own artwork?
B. Are you proud to tell the world you created your own artwork?
C. Do you value other peoples artwork enough to not steal?
The answer to all of these should be YES! (If its no MySpace is that way --> )
Its a sad fact but un-watermarked large pictures are a rippers dream come true... DA is a proven gold mine for anybody wanting to take up art theft as a hobby, and just because you have a written disclaimer in your description stating that your artwork is not to be redistributed hardly makes a difference. Anybody who has browsed the net or received a dreaded note stating that your art has been ripped will know intimately how disheartening and sickening it is, and what an almost futile fight it is to try and get the artwork removed or the ripper shut down. Watermarks don't have to be horrible clunky things that destroy the artwork its supposed to be protecting, and they really could mean

MAY EVENT --- LEAGUE OF THE FUTURE (One Week Left)First off, apologies for not being able to do an April Event. Busy busy busy!MAY EVENT --- LEAGUE OF THE FUTURE (One Week Left)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Announcements and Updates
>One Week Left to get your submissions in! Let's go, go, go!
Let's get right into the May event, which I am calling:
LEAGUE OF THE FUTURE
In the far future, the League of Legends still exists. Technology has overtaken magic as the dominant force in Runeterra. Lasers, spaceships, and advanced artificial intelligence are now commonplace. The champions of the League are all still alive and still fighting.
How It Works
For this event, you must re-imagine a champion (or champions) as they might exist in a futuristic League of Legends. Perhaps Tristana has anti-gravity boots to allow her to jump around. Maybe Garen now wields a giant laser blade. The possibilities here are limitless.

It's been almost three weeks since she got separated from them. She wouldn't give up looking for them. She gasped softly when she heard the rustle of the bushes.
"Looks like I'm gonna have to get ready for a fight...." the Chimchar said as she took a fighting position. She narrowed her eyes, ready for it.

In general my commissions are closed.
But I'm opening limited amount of commissions slots from time to time. If you are interested to commission me, you have to catch the slot or email me. I will see what i can do >u<
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED
Send me a NOTE entitled "commission"
The note should include:

Please, dont send me 'quick/short slot reservation notes' (for example: "i wan't to reserve a slot, i will send you references later"). If you don't have the references yet, put just few words about your req

Guide - Creating A Character Profile☆ GUIDE - CREATING A CHARACTER PROFILE ☆Guide - Creating A Character Profile1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In order to make a character your readers will believe, you first need to know him or her extremely well yourself. This guide created by Tyler Lehmann gives some useful direction on what to think to and include in character profiles for a whole rounded individual. Think carefully to each one, and ask yourself why you have chosen that answer throughout, as you want the characteristics to make sense and have connections, such as fears connected to an event in the past where that fear was born, as to give a pinpoint as to why your character feels as
