A 'Whittle' Magic: Carve Your Own Wand (Part 1)
Artisan Crafts Week
Part 1A: Introduction to Whittling

Greetings, I’m PraeclarusWands and today we will learn how to carve our very own Harry Potter-style wands from wood! This two-part workshop is intended for first-time woodworkers, but experienced woodworkers are sure to benefit as well. Start here in Part 1 to learn the basic techniques of whittling. We'll then use those techniques to whittle the overall shape of your wand. In Part 2, we will carve the details of your design, then sand, stain, and apply a protective finish coat to the wood, enhancing your work and creating a final product you’ll be proud to show off.
Because we will be working with sharp knives in close proximity to fingers, this workshop is recommended for those 15 years of age and older.
Tools and Materials
See Figure 1. We will need:

Voyage to the Unknown: Paintings

Eons ago I started a new feature in which I browsed through a category or sub-category I don't necessarily browse frequently, or the ones I browse the least, and collected some of the art I found that stood out! The point of this was to challenge myself, exit my comfort zone and discover new art in the process!  I'll be tagging people in each issue to follow suit and do their own, however, don't feel obligated to respond to the tag. I just want everyone to know I'd love to see them do their own spin of this feature :) (Smile)
Please visit the Master Journal for more information about this project, and to leave a link to yours if you end up doing one of your own! Voyage to the unknown: Master Journal and use the tag #TheVoyage i

I'm not taking your side anymore

You should always let the sun go down on your anger
Let it burn you to sleep
Bring it closer to danger
To surrender and retreat

Sing your sad soul to sleep

DA love: Reasons to be here
I recently asked my watchers, "What's your favourite thing about DA?" They answered and I'm not going to lie, some of the comments I read gave me the feels. I hadn't planned to make a journal out of this but sharing the positive stuff and the good experiences is super important, so here goes...
It's a community. There are plenty of art sites but its not as easy to just speak to people and make new friends [in] other places. 
AGphotostuff 

I love the community. There's some really great artists here who know how to share their expertise with younger artists. The groups system also works really well. Makes it a lot easier to watch things that are more specific in nature. Contests that people and groups hold are also really cool. They keep people creative. One of the things that works really well for me is the prints service. Th

Die Ghul Show (170) with LTIANA355!
:icondasghul:: Welcome to my humble show, :iconltiana355:!
How is your mindset? :)
:iconltiana355:: hi ghul, and thank you for inviting me to your show :)
you’re starting with a difficult question.
my current mindset is: optimistic, curious, determined, expectant, multitasking, impatient
what is your set of mind?
do you have a special 'interviewing' set of mind you use for the shows?
:icondasghul:: More than one actually... Depending on the guest, those might range from "just asking" over more philosophical and/or confrontational till utter silliness. Mostly it's a mixture of them though...
Or would you like to continue this interview with a more specified type of ghul questions? :)
:iconltiana355:: this is your party, so you can continue as you feel like.
(but i'll be relieved if you keep the confrontational silliness for a different occasion :) )

Getting to know each other v2
Hey everyone,
Here's a really simple idea - let's play a game. We're all members of this group, of the photography community, but do we know each other? do we talk to each other? do we take the time to get to know each other better?
Let's play a really easy game where you leave a comment saying "Ask me anything!" that way people can ask you whatever they want, and you're socially obligated to respond ;) (Wink)
To make sure everyone interacts, if you comment "Ask my anything" you have to also ask a question to at least 1 other person :) (Smile)
Let's see how this goes...

Vibrant Beauties
It's no secret that I love bright, colourful photography (cause no-one can be all blood, gore and darkness every day, right?) so I asked my watchers to share their favourite photos that use vibrant colours to create intense visual impact. These are the wonderful images they shared.

Community Project: #Daily5

Come one, come all! It's time for a community project.
Something many of us see on DA each day is community members asking for comments. Whether it's simply acknowledgement that they created something or genuinely wanting feedback on their art, true deviation comments can be hard to come by! I mean there is a LOT of artwork submitted here each day. If you don't have a large watcherbase, it can be hard to get attention for yourself and your art. There are a lot of comment-oriented projects on DA and that's awesome. I am hoping to keep the momentum going with this new project.
Introducing... #Daily5!
I would like to challenge all of you to take 5-10 minutes each day (or as many days as you can!) to leave only five (5) comments on others' deviations. Commenting gives attention to others but can also bring some attention right back to YOU! Plus, commenting can be a great learning experience for all involved.

I take photos and put them on the internet.

Currently most of the images come from an old papermill undergoing redevelopment - expect a mix of straight documentary photography, trash/debris fascination, and the more evocative kinda stuff I'd stick to if I was treating dA like a portfolio.

"You are cool, and I am proud of you."

Seems like everyone got this today?

Even as someone who's awkward about compliments and praise - especially when it's an automated message from a service or company (urgh) - it's still kinda neat. Goofy, but cute. I wouldn't want to be the person that could get upset by it.

(In searching for wtf this was, I found the exact wording in a comment from 2014, inception perhaps? - comments.deviantart.com/1/4692…)

Llamas, yay!


 


Hey! Thanks for visiting, but no need to thank me for the llama. Say hello, give one back, start a conversation, whatever :peace:
