Hi Fellow Dreamers!!
Wow I can't believe it's March already!! This means that another monthly challenge is here!
The goal of these challenges are not to compete and compare with each other. There's also no prizes for monthly challenges. These challenges are simply for fun and to help improve our techniques and craftsmanship in making miniature art. Challenges also help you try things you might not have tried before. Each month the team at Little-Dreamers (LD) will think of a theme for the challenge and hopefully many of you will share your works with us!
This Month's Theme
The theme for this month is spring! Seeing how spring is almost upon us, make

Craft a Moustache ContestWhat is Movember?Craft a Moustache Contest3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts FeatureAs with the Halloween feature I made, I'm a bit late... but I still think that any time is time for good art!Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of you already know that I'm mexican and proud, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very important tradition for me. While it is also celebrated in other parts of Latin America I am only familiar with the traditions we have here, so I'm really sorry for not being able to represent everyone But feel free to leave me a comment with your own traditions, I would love to read about them
In case anyone is interested some years ago I published a more or less detailed explanation on ofrendas (offerings) complete with photos. Also, I shall warn you that I consider myself a purist, and while I appreciate everyone's efforts to make art inspired by Dia de los Muertos there's some things that simply don't go with the spirit of this date, and I won't include them in this feature... for exa

Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!As a member of the Artisan Craft community here at DeviantART, I looove to browse around the AC galleries and see what other deviants are up to, what things are trending, and look for up and coming artists to feature in the future. But sadly there's one trend I've been noticing that is very, very bad.Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Undercharging your work!
Let's start off with the most important thing. Now I know some cheap buyers love these low prices, but let's be honest cheap buyers-- you're not long term supporters. People who want your work for super cheap are people who will haggle or snag a deal and run. There is nothing wrong with having sales, getting rid of old charms for cheap, or even doing discounts for special occasions but you can't cater to the cheapskates! xD You want people who appreciate handmade items for what they are. And that's a unique, quality piece.
If someone wants to buy all your hard work for just $5, perhaps you could redirect them to Forever21 to get some mass produced jewelry i

News about TRC doujin reprintsThank you all, who are interested in my TRC fanbook reprint, for filling out the polls. It certainly helped me to come to a decision:News about TRC doujin reprints2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Lüléil" will be reprinted as a standalone book. Same edition as the first run, no changes.
The compilation book will contain all my other TRC stories ever published between 2008~2011 (about 150 pages), namely:
Christmas MemoriesFrailWinter Sun (from "Road to Nowhere" anthology)ForgottenEclipseCloverfield (from "Town of Wind" anthology)
"Eclipse" will be completely remastered for the b/w edition, since it was originaly printed in color. The below example shows what I mean - I will basically redraw the entire story in normal manga style (inked and toned).
And this time I'll choose a readable font size. xD;I also plan to add a brand new one-shot story to the compilation, about 10 pages. ^^
And of course, the compilation will have a brand new cover art.
I don't want to commit myself to any deadlines or book pric

Hello dearest members!
The group hasn't had many activities for a while, so we thought, why not do a contest? Everyone likes contests, right?
Without any further yadda-yadda, onto the theme and rules!
Since summer vacation isn't far, I think many of you should have some time to make some cute stuff for this contest! Anything at all, that has to do with summer, is accepted. Remember to be creative and original!
Yeah. We know everyone hates rules.
But without them, we'd have a chaos over here!
Entries must be made from clay and made by you. Other bought props and materials are allowed, but at least most of the work needs to be yours.
