Ask me anything

I know a pretty thing!

Pretty, beautiful and cute things collected. Follow if you like pretty things, lolita, bjd or other generally stunning things. I also post etsy findings, art and crafty things.

As an artist, I will never understand why these teeny tiny canvases and these teeny tiny easels exist. Do people actually use these? Who are these people? They’re always stocked so there can’t be that much of a demand for them. Who has a collection of tiny paintings? I imagine they must be easier to store, but still.

Doll collectors buy them, for one. I have one and I collect 1/3 scale and 1/4 scale ball jointed dolls :)
I also use it to teep my tablet and cellphone safe and in a place I can see them sometimes.

REMEMBER THE CONTEST EVERYONE!

I only have ONE submission so far and it’s for the 2D Art portion! The Purrfect Picture contest still need entries and the 1st prize is a free Bobobie Yue Fox in white resin! More details for the contest can be found below.

****As a side note for my previous contest winners: prizes will be sent out soon. I recently finished sculpting and casting the homemade bases for khait as well as the fluffy ears and tail. The ears and tail will be sent with the proper magnets, but I will not be gluing them into the sockets in order to avoid compatibility issues. I’ll be sending them with super glue for your convenience.****

Purrfect Picture/Art Contest

 Status: Active (until October 31st)

Purrfect Picture/Art Contest
We need some purrfect pictures and illustrations for our new website and we’re willing to reward some lucky contestants with a few fantastic prizes. We’ve decided to break this contest up into two separate categories. People are allowed to submit multiple entries for each category. The more entries, the better! We’re also looking for quality. The two categories for this contest are as follows:
  • Photo - For photos we’re looking for high quality pictures of Egyptian Cats with faceups and/or body blushing. No blurry submissions, please! Photo quality does matter for this contest!

  • 2D Art - For 2d art, we’re wanting some show worthy visual art. The type of art, beyond the restriction of 2d, is not important! We’ll take in 2d art of all types such as gifs, pixel art, crosshatch, watercolor, etc. This category will not be as strict as the Photo category, but the entries will be judged on what is favorable.

For the Photo category, be sure to feature Khait the Egyptian Cat doll. For the 2D category, Khait and her friends may be used as the artist deems fit. Please, only submit appropriate art for the 2D category. We will disqualify anyone that sends in inappropriate art with mature themes.
We will end the contest on October 31st. Winner Tiers and their rewards are listed below.
 

Photo Category

1st Place Tier - Tuff Ears and Tail (Homemade, white resin), Metal Tail Decoration (can interact with tail and rear magnets) and a Blank Yue the Fox (White Resin).

2nd Place Tier -Tuff Ears and Tail (Homemade, white resin), Metal Tail Decoration (can interact with tail and rear magnets), Rhinestone Silk Scarf, matching Tail Silk Scarf and Scene Base (made specifically for Khait) and a Randomized Miniature (mini sofa, purse, jewelry, etc).

2D Art Category

This category can have entries from anyone, even people who did not originally contribute to our Fundraiser. As a result, we are allowing for a choice between two types of prizes. One price set will be compatible for Khait the doll, the other will function with other dolls. All homemade pieces will be cast in white resin, have magnets inserted and will be sent blank.

1st Place Tier - Pharaoh Headdress (Homemade, white resin; compatible with Khait the Cat) and Scene Base (made specifically for Khait) -OR- Tiny Feathered Wings and matching Feathered Ears (Homemade, white resin; compatible with any tiny doll) and a Randomized Miniature (mini sofa, purse, jewelry, etc).

Bonus round!  I have a  new project for my extra resin.  There has been a call for single straight spiral and I have been listening.  I don’t know how long it will last, though, as I’m using the old molds (they are turning white with use at this point).  
I will make a new mold that is just different lengths/textures of single horn in the future.

The white effect looks like frost to me.  :)

Self-taught Alaskan sculptor Lee Cross, known professionally as Wood Splitter Lee, creates incredible one of a kind fantasy creatures that are so remarkably lifelike they verge on creepy, which is just one of the things that makes them so awesome. All of Lee’s creatures are completely made by hand without the use of and patterns, molds or casts. Their bodies contain articulated skeletons wrapped with stuffing, making them very soft to handle and fully posable. They’re decorated with carefully hand-applied synthetic fur and paint. As you can see from these photos, some of Lee’s creatures are more fantastic in nature than others, but they’re all amazing to behold.

Lee’s creatures are available for purchase through weekly Auction Adoptions held on eBay.

To check out more of her phenomenal handmade creatures, visit Wood Splitter Lee’s DeviantArt gallery.

Trying to get together a basic pattern for my zaoll. I’m super lazy with counting and actually going by the book, so I’m just winging it. So far it’s going alright, but I’ll need to make the following edits: take some more off the back, make the neck opening smaller and bring the shoulder parts together a bit. 
As a whole, I’m quite pleased. When I get the base pattern together I can start making some actual shirts for her.
