Hey, guys! :) I haven't wrote in a long time, but it feels like it's high time to do it, not just because I have a problem at hand that only you can help me solve. Plus, there's a bit of summer sale on my Etsy (link down below), but about that later.


So, what's been going on?

Well, it's about here:  

Ever since last year, I began to notice a very strange behavior on my YouTube channel. For all of you who are unfamiliar with it, I have a very small channel that serves mainly to introduce my finished works, so that friends, fans and customers could see it. There's also few tutorials and animations there. I plan another channel soon, which will deal more with tutorials, how-to's and similar, but that is a story for some other time.

Anyway, for quite a while, I noticed that my subscribers number was acting like frozen. It just stood on the same number and frankly, I wouldn't have noticed if a friend didn't tell me that he and his three friends all subscribed from their own accounts, but when I checked, the number was still the same. I told them it must have been some kind of mistake and to try again, but they all confirmed they were subscribed and even went so far to unsubscribe and subscribe again. But the number didn't change.

Worried by this, I went to YouTube help forum and tried asking for help, but then found out that quite a number of people had the same problem and were left with it unanswered and that, too, no one even bothered answering my question, either (which is saddening behavior for such a big company, but then again, did you notice many of big sites have a really rotten help and support? I don't know, is it a trend or something? :P) Anyway...

Not long after, the number on my channel moved and I soon forgot about it all under the pressure of other, more important things. But then again, last February, number stuck again and it wasn't moving for several long weeks. When it did, it jumped for three subscribers up and I was quite happy for that.

But then, after just two days, two of those seemingly unsubscribed :( Or did they, really?

Since then, a strange thing keeps happening. Number jumps for a subscriber or two or three. Then falls down for at least one subscriber in a matter of day or so and more often, for two or even all three. It usually goes like this: +2 subscribers, several hours or up to a day passes, -1 subscriber. +3 subs, few hours or up to a day passes, -2 subscribers. On worse days, it goes -1 or -2 subscribers, but in those cases, they apparently RETURN IN A MATTER OF HOURS, BUT ONLY IF NO NEW SUBSCRIBERS WERE ADDED.

Freaky, no?

Along with that, my watchtime and number of views suddenly went down to almost non-existent for some reason. Just for comparison: one of my old videos has just under 300 000 views. My average was between 4000-9000 views. But now, I have videos with only 1 view or up to 10, best. And I have no idea what's been going on. People, my DEATH NOTE video has collected all 20 views since April. DEATH NOTE, guys! With all the proper tags and all... I mean... do only I feel it's not really realistic? 

Is it some kind of blacklisting? Ghostban? But why?

To my knowledge, I did nothing wrong. Worse thing I once did was to (unknowingly) take copyrighted music and edit it to my video, but that was taken down and ever since then, I had no troubles whatsoever. And that video itself had around 6000 views back then and it was about five years ago. So... yeah :confused: 

My friends, I need to ask you for a big favor. Would you help me by going to my channel and subscribe to it, just so we could see if anything changes? Or watch my videos couple of times, so we check if  the numbers move? Or maybe help me spread the word around and see if someone else would help me check this, too? Even if it is just a temporary and you're not interested in seeing videos of my new works, lol, I would hugely appreciate if you would help me try this on. I promise, it is not a trick to lure you into subscribing my channel, lol. You're always free to unsubscribe, after all :P

But joke aside, I am really desperate. You know how I feel about this? Like someone is holding me in a transparent little box and I don't know where the walls are or why are they there, just that I can't really move. Blah. Anyone, do you remember this old drawing of mine:

*sigh* Not that I'm an angel or even close, lol :P

So, that's basically how it is. I have a lot of friends, good, close friends on dA, so thought to ask for help here, as this is what the dA is best at in my experience, artist to artist support ;) If you care to give a bit of your time, go here:

Let's see if we can make things move and make some difference.


Now, about more cheerful stuff. As always, I am in the sale mood for the end of summer, so please note that all my items in the Etsy shop are down by $5. FREE SHIPPING for everything goes without saying, of course, so if you planned buying something from me, now it would be a good time to do it ;) The code you need to use for this discount is: AUGUSTSALE 
(though you'll get it instead of "thank you" note with every purchase, as well)

And that's it. Sorry for spilling my troubles above, heh. It's weird, isn't it? Anyway, I hope you had and are still having a glorious summer and a lot fabulous time ^^ Until the next time!!! :heart:
(oh, and if you were looking for my Instagram: ;)

Claudia - Miniature Bear
Lately, I've been making these bears alongside other things, half for fun, half for trying something else. I've seen a lot of ways to make them and wasn't very satisfied with them, so invented my own and it works very well for me. One the first was this one, Claudia.

Claudia is 2.5 cm (0.98 inch) and can move all joints and head fully. Everything is handmade and from scratch, including eyes and joints, and the lace for the collar ;)

Do tell me what you think, here or in the comments on YouTube (which I would appreciate):

If you want to catch me on Instagram, here's that as well:…
Miniature Matryoshka II - Smallest Yet
This is the smallest set of matryoshka that I ever made. The smallest doll is unofficially also the smallest matryoshka in the world (or so I'm told, feel free to correct me). Largest doll is 1 cm (0.39 inch), middle is 0.5 cm (0.19 inch) and the smallest is 0.28 cm (0.11 inch)... or 2.8 mm, while the world record is 3.1 mm.

These dolls are made out of linden wood (lime or basswood) and are carved by hand, then also painted by hand by the original design. All by me, as always ;) They're OOAK.

Dragonfly Pond
Here is one of the recent works. Small dragonfly pond, place for dragonflies to land and enjoy water, small variety of waterlilies and moss covered with shiny crystals. 

All handmade from scratch, as always. Air dry clay, resin, foam, wire, quartz crystals, paper and acrylics are used in making this ;)

You're an exceptional artist. You're the kind of illustrator and photographer I someday hope to be, and your miniatures are so beautifully detailed and just amazing. And your artisan crafts are beautifully done. I love your gallery!

How much would it cost for you to make a miniature of the book of darkness from the movie Army of Darkness?
