Finally, Deviantart is Beta-ing a Groups feature! I'm very excited! I've always wished it was easier to find other doll artists on DA, and now we can collect them all into a group and help each other out.
I've already submitted a group for doll artists called Original-Doll-Art. Everyone who makes original dolls, whether they're sewn, sculpted or cast (as in bjds) is invited. Stay tuned; I'll post an update here when I get started.
For ages I've been torn between trying to keep track of all the dollmakers on DA as well as faving deviations I really love, too, but due to the increase of dollmakers on DA, this account is really turning into a mess. So I've made a new account, NeedleandClay http://needleandclay.deviantart.com/, where I'm going to try to help dollmaker deviants find one another. If they ever come out with a real groups function on DA, I'll be right there, but in the meantime, visit my other account's faves to see if I've found some dollmakers you haven't seen before.
First, a message from our sponsors:
I'd like to invite all Deviants who are interested in doll art to visit my blog, Needle and Clay www.needleandclay.com. I am making an effort to compile a bunch of resources for dollmakers, so I'm posting a link to a new tutorial every Tuesday and a review of a doll artist every Friday. In between, I blog about doll news, including doll events. Suggestions are welcome for other content people would like to read.
Yesterday I posted some pix of my newest project, the Virtue Sprites. They're kind of like angels, I guess, but I don't think of them as angels. Each one has a sculpted face (made from a pu
I would ask other groups how to use it. But if I'm getting it correctly it is sort of like a ring. When someone posts and the group is watching them then it goes to the group. Sort of like a one stop place.
