You CAN do More to Prevent SuicideDue to her Daily Deviation today, I was made aware of the situation involving Avalik and her untimely death from suicide on October 1st, 2010. I looked back several pages on her profile and found a link to the article explaining the circumstances of her death:
It is tragic whenever anybody commits suicide. It always leaves behind so many questions for their loved ones. Could I have done anything different to help them? In most cases, no, you couldn't, but in this case something could have been done. It's an option most people aren't aware that they have. It is so easy to feel powerless on the internet when you know someone is in trouble and intends to harm themselves.
If you have a friend who is telling you that they want to commit suicide, it is important to take them seriously. Telling people is a cry for help. They don't really want to die. If they did, they wouldn't tell anybody. They're desperately looking for a way out.
Welcome to Digital Dolls dAWelcome to Dolling!
First off, we would like to welcome you to the Dolling Community on DeviantArt. We're a small community compared to other areas of the site, but we're very welcoming and encouraging of newcomers of all shapes and sizes. Due to the small size of the community, not many people seem to know much about us or our quirks and terminology, so we've compiled a brief guide to help you with dolling and where to post your dolls (as we are aware some of our categories are quite confusing).
On with the article!
What is dolling?
Dolling is where you take a basebody either created by yourself or by someone else and draw hair, clothes and accessories on it. A doll usually has a hard pixel edge and a transparent background so that it may be placed on any colored background website.
On DeviantArt, dolls are submitted into Customization > Dolls > and then into their subcategories of Pixel, Tool and misc shading.
symbols we are not.EDIT: I've seen a lot of symbol hate going around lately. Plus since the symbols changed I figured it's time to update this journal
also my writing skills have vastly improved & articles weren't very editable back then.
deviantART: A community of artists and those devoted to art. Digital art, skin art, themes, wallpaper art, traditional art, photography, poetry / prose.
a diverse group of individuals brought together by a common interest: ART. We come from all corners and crevices of the world joining together in one common place forming a community, identifying ourselves and nothing more or less than what we are; artists.
We are not...
symbols. Each username followed by a symbol is no more or less than another. We are all individuals and people behind screens and usernames. Some of us with symbols, some of us with none. Strip away the symbols and we find deviantART: a community.

I like to sculpt my doll's faces out of Sculpey Premo! polymer clay. On a doll like my kitsune or harlequin kittens, I used about 1/5 to 1/6 of an 8oz bar. That's about 2oz, which is a size you can buy polymer clay packages in, convenient! Now that I make my dolls with soft paws and soft ears, I use even less clay.
Before you start making your doll: Get a reference! Make a sketch of the actual size your doll will be, this will help you measure the wires and fit everything together. Photo references of real animals will help you with anatomy and sculpting.

Educate: Digital Mixed MediaWhat is Digital Mixed Media?
Digital Mixed Media is a visual work of art created using two or more types of digital mediums.
So what exactly does this mean? Lets break it down. First lets define "digital." When the word digital is used to refer to visual artworks it is referring to the method of creation. Computers are used to create digital works, and submitting a work of art to one of the Digital Galleries implies that it was created via the use of a program on computer.
There are several basic digital art forms, and they are defined briefly here:
Painting/Drawing/Airbrushing: This involves using a mouse or graphics tablet along with a graphics program to create paintings or sketches directly in said program without the use of photographs unless for reference. Programs used include: Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, the Gimp and others.Photo-manipulation: The use of photographs (in most cases
12 Shades of Red12 slightly different shades of red.
(According to wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_red) Also note that these are not going to be exact, but only the general idea.)
Falu red or Falun red (in Swedish Falu rödfärg) is the name of a Swedish, deep red paint well known for its use on wooden cottages and barns. The paint originated from the copper mine at Falun in Dalarna, Sweden. The traditional color remains popular today due to its effectiveness in preserving wood.
Scarlet (from the Persian säqirlāt) is a bright red color with a hue that is somewhat toward the orange. It is a pure chroma on the color wheel. It is redder than vermilion. Traditionally, scarlet is the color of flame. It may also refer to the color of the blood of a living person.
