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!
Extra credits if you already tried some of these!
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.
1. Stone carving.
Incredible works of art can be made even from the humble common stone. Precious or semi-
Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g

What is a friend?"So what is a friend anyway? Have things changed between real-life friends and internet friends?"What is a friend?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a question one of my friends here on DA wrote today, and I answered her with this, but thought it could bear repeating in a Journal.
So what is a friend? And are you only able to be friends in real life or can you have internet friends? As far as I"m concerned, you can have both.
The reason so many of us bond so tightly with people we've met and befriended on the internet is this: we have met usually because of a fandom or a common interest, like a hobby, or love of a character or show, or music or art, so we obviously both have similarities and favourites that will instantly link us. As we talk more, we find out more about our online friends, but we always have that solid bond of having a shared interest to fall back on, and are never short of a topic of conversation, because we can always talk about the things we know we like.

LET'S SAVE MOTORCITY!As many of you Motorcity fans probably know, Disney XD has cancelled the show so season 2 will not continue. The worst part is that Disney still has the rights on the series so Titmouse can't give the project to another company to produce it.LET'S SAVE MOTORCITY!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So let's save our beloved Motorcity let's fight for the characters we love!
First of all, sign this petition http://www.change.org/petitions/disney-return-the-motorcity-ip-to-titmouse?utm_campaign=friend_inviter_modal&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition&utm_term=33044023
Then all of you try to draw as many fanarts you can and write all the reason why you want the show back in the description (and don't forget to post the link to the petition too!)
We can do it!

Challenge for August: Design an elaborate ball gown for a little girl
It's time for a ball! A night filled with dancing and magic! But this is not a ball for adults, instead it is one just for kids! Design an elaborate ball gown for a little girl attending this amazing event. Kids have huge imaginations and they would not wear just any plan dress. She must have a dress that rivals the best and stands out from the crowd!

Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

We've been working hard to come up with something that'll really get your styli moving.
Without further delay, I present to you the Hero Challenge:

Preventing Injuries for Artists...Preventing Injuries for Artists...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Preventing Injuries for Artists (and people who work with computers)
Hello there my fellow deviants, time for a new update. It’s a long entry, so go grab a snack and sit tight with a good posture, because there's a lot to learn here - even some anatomy.
I just read about Loish’s injury on her blog, and it’s truly saddening to see a fellow artist struggling with a physical limitation that affects their workflow.
Loish is absolutely right, the body has its limits and we ought to be careful before it’s too late.
Tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, aren’t stranger terms to me, many artists and people who work with computers for many hours, tend to deal with the same conditions, some let it advance to the stage where the only treatment is surgery, which can potentially reduce mobility and destroy an illustrator’s career.
Why can't they be taken seriously?< RANT >Why can't they be taken seriously?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been a fan of comic books for years and two of my favorite characters, one Marvel and one DC, are always getting the short end of the stick.
Power Girl has had 2 series, She Hulk had at least 3, and both were cancelled because they weren't considered popular enough.
I seriously think that the editors had no idea how create the comics for their supposed target audience.
They wrote books for a mainly female audience - FAILED ATTEMPT
Or horny fanboys - FAILED ATTEMPT
Then even tried to make them full-blown dramatic superheroes like their male counterparts - DOUBLE FAIL BECAUSE THEY AREN"T THEM
(Power Girl/Superman, She-Hulk/Hulk if you don't know your comic book characters)
Know what audience really appreciated these ladies?
Comic book fans who were tired of formulaic, predictable, massive world-changing story lines and heroes who have to make gut-wrenching decisions and miraculous saves.
These are people who wanted a fun

CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In TimeA couple of things: GIMP lags on me now which makes it a pain on me and my laptop to record process videos. And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions. Further info about my process will be located under each WIP shot!CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In Time1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Catwoman Costume Making ArticleCatwoman Costume Making Article3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I always loved the stories about transformation of

Comics Are ArtComic-Con Journey to the Heart of The New Summer VacationComics Are Art3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.
Comic-Con has become the new arts and culture go-to in domestic summer vacation destin
