Site Update: December 10, 2011
A little while ago, we released the first Sta.sh Updates article. The response was amazing.
We've fixed some of the issues you brought up last time, but there's still plenty to do. We've also been working on a lot of details that didn't come up in the feedback. It's a big list, so get ready!

Change Log

:bulletblue: Sta.sh now supports keyboard shortcuts! Hit up, down, left, right, and hit the Delete/Backspace key to remove any selected items. Hold the Shift key as you move around with the arrow-keys to select a bunch of files at once! - Added by kouiskas
:bulletblue: We've brought back the full word "Comments" instead of using the small speech bubble icon on the Journals in deviantART's footer, and the journals in the Journal Portal, making it a little easier on our newer community members - Added by kemayo

All-Media's Feature of the Week
:wave: Hello :iconAll-Media: members and those who wish to become :D
We are promoting a certain number of deviations this week from each of our categories (the number depending on the category size) to be featured in our Featured folder and also on our front page.
So you are now wondering how to be featured? You only need to send your deviations to our folders and every week we are choosing those which will get feature.
What are you waiting for, next week maybe here will be you :nod:
We are going to transform these weekly features into two features a month, Bimonthly Features :D
We are doing this because some folders don't get many deviations so we don't have the opportunity to choose the best :D

AC Month Spotlight On: Custom Dolls!
What is this?
This is the third installment of articles, written for Artisan Crafts Month, which introduce the Artisan Crafts sub-galleries by talking about what they are, how to do work within them, and featuring artwork from the galleries.  In this edition I will be talking about the Custom Dolls Gallery!
What are Custom Dolls?
Defintion from deviantART Gallery Description:
Custom dolls created from bases or by hand and are usually of porcelain, vinyl, or hard plastic. Custom dolls are not stuffed.
Custom dolls are different than Plushies in the sense that they are not stuffed, are not sewn, and are not made from textiles.  You can read from the description above a few of the things they can be made from.

Artisan Crafts interview with *noeling
An interview with noeling, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us!!
1) First off, please introduce yourself? Who are you, where are you from?
Hello everyone! My name's Noel Cruz and just like all of you, art has been my life long passion. I was born as well as raised in the Phiippines. English is part of standard education so I am blessed to speak both our native language of Tagalog as well as English. I am the third of 6 boys (that's right - all boys!),  so growing up was chaotic. My other sibling also possess natural artistic talent. It's rather sad, however that none of them nourished and pursued quite the way I did.  
2) How did you get started doing your craft?
Being raised in a relatively poor family in the Philippines, I grew up without the comfort of material things. I found comfort and satisfaction from immersing myself in imagination. At the onset of my adolescense, I discovered and I had a particular fon

The Big Bang Theory Sheldon Cooper doll repaint
You can now follow me on Instagram @noelcruzdolls

FOR MORE OF MY CELEBRITY DOLLS, PLEASE VISIT MY WEB SITE AT WWW. NCRUZ.COM . Link below:

This doll is currently on ebay for a 3-day only auction. Auction ends Tuesday May 1st at 6:00 pm PST. Click on link below to view the 3-day auction:

www.ebay.com/itm/123105935103

Custom precision repaint and hair restyle of Tonner's SDCC 2014 exclusive Big Bang Theory Jim Parsons Sheldon Cooper doll. Middle inset photo shows the doll before repaint.


Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with Tonner or any other doll or toy company.)

As a Filipino, I am deeply saddened by the recent devastation that has befallen my country, with many towns decimated and thousands killed from the recent worst ever recorded typhoon in history that ravaged the Philippines a few days ago. It would be a disservice if I didn't take this moment to call to everyone for whatever assistance, help and support we can extend to the victims of this horrific disaster. I feel grateful and honored for your support of my art, but we are first and foremost human beings and I have faith in the power of humanity especially in moments of real crisis.

Many thanks to everyone for allowing me to reach to you and your hearts so that we can come together and help those who are suffering.

Below is a link to relief organizations where we can send help. Whatever we can give, even prayers, will go  long way in helping our hurting brothers and sisters.

As an artist, I strive to always challenge myself and push the boundaries. My passion for hand painted miniature celebrity figures stems from my love of portraits, which has been my whole artistic arc since childhood.

The satisfaction of not only the ability to recreate a person's likeness but to recreate it in lifelike 3D miniature form (i.e. dolls and action figures) is one that I consider immeasurable.

Repaint is not your standard mainstream artistic arena, but I am extremely grateful that it has been gaining recognition for the last 10 years.

Repaint is a portrait taken to a whole other level.

I don't know if you guys know each other or not, but you and Trevor Grove should work together. He sculpts what I feel are the best figures with uncanny likeness I have ever seen:

The two of you would create the most incredible figures ever!!!

I stumbled across your gallery and I can't say enough how amazing your work is.  To take something so simple, and capture not only the realism, but the warmth and characteristics in these dolls is incredible.  Keep up the awesome work!
