Project Educate: Showcasing your Artisan Crafts
This is a comprehensive guide on how to best present your crafts and show them in their full glory. It is based on my personal experience, research and of course on my taste, so it is by no means applicable to everything or everyone and is strongly biased. I hope this helps you to get more out of displaying your crafts on dA.
This guide has three sections: Photography, Selecting a Category, Description.
Most artisans and crafters have experienced that it is difficult to display three dimensional work on a two dimensional screen. Bringing the full beauty, complexity and all around view and feel of your work to the screen is a big challenge, but there are some easy fixes.
1. Photography
Photographing your crafts is the most important part in showing it off, but it is also the biggest challenge for getting it right. Many crafters think that getting great photographs means having a studio and expensive equipment, but there are many methods of enhancing your images without

Artisan Crafts Contest
Before and After Contest
I have just posted a newly revised edition of my guide to showcasing artisan crafts and would like to use this to offer my fellow crafters a little challenge!
If you would like to improve your craft deviations and win a deviantART premium membership, this is your chance! This is to illustrate how you can have better results with the same materials (same camera, same craft). Here's how it works:

Symbolica Contest
Ok, well, you're probably guessing it's a contest that involves symbols somehow, but as I wanna keep you in the dark for a little more instead blurting out the real theme right away :P, we’ll start with the prizes and rules, lol.
It is a somewhat private contest, so I am the only donor of the prizes (at least for now…contact me if you wanna donate something :)).
And the prizes are:

There will be three winners in this contest and each will get one of those books. One will get a red one, other the blue one and the third a green one, depending of which one you choose in your entry comment upon entering :)
Also, the winners will be featured in my journal (I can’t do the real feature, as I don’t have Premium right now, but still…) after contest is finished :)
ALL visual media allowed (sorry to all of my friends who do only literature, I promise another contest similar to this that’ll include lit works too, all by

Enjoying Free Membership Day

Mon Apr 7, 2014, 8:30 PM
I had Premium Membership. I used to enjoy it so much, when I had more time to spend on DA. It was like 2 years ago...

Last Christmas, my Membership ended and I didn't renew it... Not because of DA, but just cause all my time is consumed with several (and more important) other stuff... Sad, but true.

Anyway, I have my Crazy for Crochet group, wich is abandoned (so sorry), and my #365insetos Personal Project, in wich I draw one insect (almost) every day, but it's on Facebook.

So this Journal is just to declare I'm still alive! See you soon!
