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-

Now, I realize that the prizes aren't all that great, and I'll get to what they are in a little bit, but for right now let me just explain the contest a little more.
I got this idea after watching afterschool specials. My mom was talking about them, and now I love them a lot. The specific one that gave me the idea is the one titled "Amy and the Angel"
I just thought this would be a good idea. And maybe if it got enough attention, I'd do it annually? That's what I plan to do, anyway. By next year I would probably be more prepared and have more prizes to offer but since it's already January I should go ahead and start o3o
Anyhow, let me explain the theme a little bit. What I want from each entry is a piece of artwork that has something to do with the theme. I want it to be inspiring. Like, if someone was considering taking their life and saw your art, it would provide either hope, support, or an invit

Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co

See the light and remember it
Lighting in photography is a living, changing art. One of the most important abilities of a photographer is to see light and to remember it. Light is the most changing element in our daily life. We move among solid objects and among people who do not change drastically during a day or a week. But visually the appearance of our environment and of people around us may change from one hour to the next due to the time of day, the weather, or the particular source of light. Photographers are aware of these changes and store in their memory the impact different types of light have on our emotions and our subconscious. For a photographer, watching the light becomes second nature.
Some of the photographer's palette of tools:
-The angle of light
-Quality (hard or soft)

5 things you didn't know you knew about Annabeth1. Her ears always turn red when she's embarrassed5 things you didn't know you knew about Annabeth3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. When she's nervous, she tucks a small curl behind her ear
3. She wore a black camo tank top during the entire battle of tLO
4. She has worn makeup twice during the original series... Did you notice when?
5. She's cried five times in front of Percy before they were a couple, can you name all the times?
All this is right from the books. You just probably never noticed it. Or did you?
Sometimes I just want to give up on drawing.I love drawing, it's my hobby and my passion. It's my way of expressing emotions that I cannot express with words or action. It's my way to cheer myself up from a horrible day, or to just simply make me happy by drawing what I like.Sometimes I just want to give up on drawing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But there are times when I get frustrated with it. I'm never satisfied with my work. Even if I had been working on it for a week, I will always feel that it's not good enough. If I do feel satisfied with it, the feeling isn't long lasting. After a while I'll eventually find the flaws in that piece and condemn myself again for being incapable of creating a decent piece of work. I'll always go after perfection, but I know that's not possible, even with practice, and hard work. I know that even the greatest artists will always want to be better. It's a never-ending cycle, a journey without a finish line, striving for something that could never be achieved that is perfection. This is why I have been storing most of my deviations in my gallery, and also why I ha
How to Use Page ChibisThis is a journal because the Sta.sh deviation broke down and wouldn't even let me edit it. It also can't break HTML... Sta.sh and I have a love/hate relationship. I love being able to draft online, but I hate the bugs.How to Use Page Chibis3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Page chibis are available for all members (premium or not!). Here's a quick and easy guide on how to make them.
Make a chibi, or commission one from me. (They're cheap.) If you decide to make your own, I recommend you give it a transparent background so it will blend in with your widgets.
If you made your own, upload it to the internet. If you don't want to post it on deviantART, I recommend Photobucket. Photobucket has a border that appears on mousing over images, and you can customize it so that only the "direct link" option shows. The direct link is the image URL.
Other people argue things such as "imgur is superior to Photobucket!", but I've found Photobucket better for chib

I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be inclusionary, redeeming and welcoming to any artist on their own path. Instead of just crediting naikki with the inspiration for this new series on depthRADIUS, I also invited her to provide a quote about Herman Hesse of her own to kick off this series.

So Thursday for the first time in SSS history...(Aluri: Casually stealing this from Blue! Check out our tumblr! http://sss-warriorcats.tumblr.com/ )So Thursday for the first time in SSS history...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, Thursday, for the first time in SSS history, some members of the team met each other in real life for the first time. Aluri, Blue (Bluestar) and Sorena (Spottedleaf) met in London and spent time together for the day.
It was awesome and really fun, we got silly, went into geek shops, got scared in the London Dungeons and sung MLP songs around the city.
We were all sad to see each other go but alas, the day must always come to an end. We hope to have more meet ups in the future and see more fellow SSS crew members. Maybe even, at some point a fan meet up too where you can come see us.
As for now, I leave you with these photo's:

SWORD ART ONLINE ACTUAL GAME?OKAY HERE'S THE THING, WE HAVE SOME OF THE TECHNOLOGY TO ACTUALLY DO THIS. Ever heard of the Oculus Rift? Look it up, it's a virtual reality gaming system. You have to put on this weird mask/helmet looking thing to see the game and hold on to these remote/handel thingys to move. This is a screenshot from my favorite anime ever titled Sword Art Online. Again, if you haven't heard of it look it up, it's on Toonami every saturday night at 2AM, it's amazing. The show is about a bunch of players trying a virtual reality game that was just released but it trapped them in the game so now they're fighting off monsters and sometimes players gone bad to escape the game to get back to reality. Now I understand after hearing that you'd be a little skeptical and freaked out to even try Oculus Rift, but wouldn't that be amazing?! Playing in one giant server with other people across the world in this game?! Someone needs to get to work on this because we actually have the power to do this.SWORD ART ONLINE ACTUAL GAME?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

You REALIZE i started this comic with the intention of adult material....this is a Mature comic.
Some of my pages will contain gore/blood and depending how bad it is will be moderate or strictly placed under dA's mature system.
I don't give a fuck what you grew up on. I live in a house where if your ass aint 17 or older theres no gore for you.
If i do not flag it i could be in some serious shit. Next thing you know: bye-bye chibi-works.
"Just don't make mature pages"
I have been waiting to add gore into the cccrrreeeeppyyyppaaasssttaaaa comic since i sketched this page a year ago.
Soooo there isn't any convincing me NOT to do what I want to do for MY comic.
I made this because its fun and I wanted to do it. Please remember this: You came along for the ride.
So all in all, if your dA doesn't allow you to see it here you
