What is bookbinding?
We all have books at home, whether they be schoolbooks, novels, journals or sketchbooks. They might be paperbacks or hardbacks, though I'm guessing not many of you own hand-crafted books. With books being commonly used and readily available items today we forget that books are (or can be) works of art! Bookbinding is a craft especially cultivated in the Middle Ages, where books were still quite rare and expensive. The art of bookbinding has survived until today, although it is no longer necessary to bind books by hand, since we have machines that can do that for us. Nevertheless, a hand-made book is a beautiful thing, and has the special appeal of something unique.

FAQHere I've compiled a list of the questions I get asked the most often ^_^FAQ5 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) How long have you been making miniatures?
I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll's House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It's a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it's spiraled into an obsession ever since!
2) Where do you purchase your plates and other miniature accessories?
Luckily there's a local miniatures shop called Little Enchantments (http://www.littleenchantments.com) that has anything doll sized you could possibly ask for. I've also bought dishes and all sorts of cutlery from Ebay.
3) Do you make the plates or just the food?
I only make the food ^_^ The only n

How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.How to stay Motivated1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours
WARNING - Please readIf you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you. They will pay after a few days, BUT they will issue a credit card chargeback on the purchase. (They "share" a Paypal name/email, so I am suspicious that it is just the same person who moved accounts)WARNING - Please read1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm now in the negatives in Paypal due to the chargebacks, and sadly Paypal does NOT cover digital goods (including art) so I won't be getting this money back.
They are doing this to other users/my dA friends as well.
Here's just 3 of the chargebacks they sent me to show as proof. (They have spent thousands on my art, their paypal email is email@example.com)
As you can see, I tried to provide evidence for one of them (still have many to go through)
Anyways, as this is a clear breach of my Terms of Service, I'm reclaiming ALL of their Sushi Dogs + an adopt that they purchased made by myself and ka

Rules (a warning and under construction)1) No mini-moddingRules (a warning and under construction)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am bringing up the topic of the group's general rules, which we haven't yet written down for everyone to see, because I've seen people answering others' questions on multiple places (newbie guide, FAQ, front page).
YOU ARE -NOT- ALLOWED TO ANSWER ANOTHER MEMBER'S QUESTION.*
We understand the urge to help, but I've already seen replies that were wrong or subjective. We do not want any situations arising from people who were misinformed by someone else; This is annoying for both us admins that need to clean up and look like the bad guys for changing something someone had already set up, and for that person that worked to establish something that goes against the group's rules.
It also involves calling out the attention of the person who replied wrongly. It is not nice for them, and we MOST CERTAINLY don't enjoy doing it, but as admins we have to enforce certain rules for the sake of the group.
