AC Month Spotlight On: Folding and Papercraft!
What is this?
This is the seventh 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 Folding & Papercraft Gallery!
What is Folding & Papercraft?
Defintion from deviantART Gallery Description:
The art of folding and cutting paper to create objects of a 3D nature such as origami, dioramas, and other art work.
If you have a piece of craft work that has either been folded, cut, torn, bent or otherwise used paper, then it probably belongs here.  Origami is among one of the more popular styles of art that is submitted to this category.
Origami is the traditional Japanese art or technique of folding pa

A guide for improving your AC-photographs
A good visual presentation is everything when it comes to applying to colleges, jobs or exhibitions. Or just sharing you work!
As a part of January: Artisan Crafts month I'm sharing some tips and tricks to combat different problems and can be used no matter what camera you are using. This is a guide I've been meaning to do for a long time, but please note that I am not a professional in any way.
A guide for improving your AC-photographs
- a journal entry trying to guide through some different challenges we artisans can experience when the viewer can't touch the surface, feel the fabric or smell the wood.

AC Month Interview with: Myana!
What is this?
Throughout the month of January, Artisan Crafts Month, I will be posting interviews with artisans who have made a difference on dA either through their own artisan crafts, or the effort they put into the community (and it's usually a combination of the two!)
This is the interview with Myana, Woodworking expert.
First, a little about Myana.
Having been taught at one of Sweden's finest school in cabinetmaking, Myana has been a driving force in the woodworking world.  She has been doing woodworking for about 7 years, and over those years she has discovered that you should always take pride in what you create.

The Interview
Life on dA.
Q: How has your artwork changed since you joined dA?
A: I can't really say that my woodwork has changed that much. I submit either my own

'Start from scratch' Competition!
This is my first time submitting an article. Don't judge me.
I just came up with the idea of a competition; the Start From Scratch competition! What I mean by this is, that the artists who wish to participate have to work on an abstract piece using just Photoshop, and starting off with a blank document. No stocks allowed, no C4Ds, no renders and in general, no pictures of any kind. You have to create a base on your own and manipulate it to the max.
Submit your entries via note to : :icontehimb41337:
The top 5 that will be picked will be featured on a News Article.
The rules are simple :
1)Maximum size allowed is 1500x1000 pixels.
2)You are NOT to use any picture of any kind. If I get suspicious, I are allowed to ask for your .psd file for verification.
3)Contest deadline is **/**/08 (not set yet)
4)OPTIONAL : Your deviation should have a theme(i.e. love, hate etc.). If it doesn't, it will only be rated based on its virtual effects.
P.S. : Fave the article if you like

We regularly get people asking for a Patreon, or for a method of supporting us via small regular increments that doesn't require the regular sacrifice of small animals or children. TO THAT END, I've added a Patreon. Please note, like it says, no physical works will ever be available through there (for that, go to like always). It's ONLY meant to be a support Patreon, not a mercantile site like our own.

So, that said, here's the Patreon link:…
Ok, my old Livejournal now has the "Sorry, we're closed." sign permanently hung up in the window. With the new policy changes I figured it was better to not hang around further. That said, here's where else to find me:

Fetlife: HAHHAH By request only if you can't find me there on your own somehow.
Sigilum Mox- Anti-Surveillance Sigil

This entry in the series is designed NOT to be used as an invisibility or cloaking sigil. In fact, wearing it may make you MORE noticeable rather than less. Instead, this is designed to attract the attention of those watching, confuse and confound their sight, increase feelings of paranoia, fear, and distraction.

Best used by placing prints, cameras, or other objects bearing the sigil in full view of whatever may be watching. Or worn to serve as a distraction while others do work they wish to go unnoticed.

Available on Redbubble at:…
Available on Tormented Artifacts at: (coming soon)

As per usual, use where needed, take all of the doses in the bottle without ending the regimen early, share/inscribe where needed and useful (with appropriate crediting), make sure to take with food, and purchase when deeply desired.

Let’s be clear. Supporting a queer-owned and operated business that’s out to supply awesome leatherworks to all manner of cosplayers, radicals, weirdos, etc, is EXACTLY the kind of thing the new guy in the office would HATE.
You, like me, enjoy seeing this guy mad, yes?

Here’s where to go:

Even better, I’m betting his supporters will hate you sharing this around just about as much.

Get cool stuff. Piss off Trump supporters by helping another family that’d be on his hit list survive. Easy math, right?
The Claw of Solomon
The #Claw of Solomon. First said to be wielded by the secret Queen to rip reality itself asunder so that he might study the creatures that lay Beyond.

Whatever you choose to call it, this one of a kind #gauntlet is now finished and joining the ranks of other unique pieces that we'll be taking to Emerald City Comicon and SakuraCon this year.


Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Not much is known about Dmitri Arbacauskas, before he came riding in out of the east with only a paintbrush, a leather punch, and a host of mad ideas snaking their way through his head. It's said that he's one of the few people to have attended Cornish College of the arts, and possibly Miskatonic University as well. It's also said that he's been known to howl at the moon, and to hold strange rituals on its dark, demanding sacrifices of rum, tobacco, and entire bottles of paint.

But then, people tend to say a lot of things.

Who am I? An artist. A bit of a geek. A bit crazy, sure, but then, that's all of us these days. I'd rather let my work speak for itself, rather than you try to deduce how my own personal history affects it (generally, it doesn't), but should you feel the need to find out more about me, you can always try my personal Twitter or Tumblr accounts.

Current Residence: Seattle, deviantWEAR sizing preference: Men's Large, Personal Quote: This is mine. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.
All right, so, several things here. 

First off, we're MOVING. Not far or anything, just a touch north of Seattle. Not even a full half-hour's drive. But as with any move, that means we're now hitting a period where running your own art business at the same time can get a bit screwed up, as new orders from are going to be a touch delayed while inventory's stuck in multiple places in boxes. 

At the same time, THE DREADED BIRFDAY SEASON IS UPON US. Ten days until I turn 38. What an odd freaking age to turn. If you feel you absolutely MUST get me something as your imperious leader, you can do so here: (Sadly, Amazon still lacks options for delivering me the blood and skulls of my defeated enemies, or a portal to the depths of R'yleh. Shame that.)
