Project Educate Interview With ElvenCrystalineAs a part of #projecteducate, I have conducted a short series of interviews. I hope that these are informative and that they give some inside perspective into the doll world.Project Educate Interview With ElvenCrystaline by ^Lyricanna
The first to have an interview with me is `isoldel
1. Please introduce yourself.
Hi, I'm Stacy, aka Caelest or ElvenCrystaline. I'm 23, married and in the military. I'm the head administrator of #DollingClub and I'm also an admin in #Free-dAvatars.
2. When did you first discover dolling and how long have you been dolling for?
I first discovered dolling way back in late 2002 when I found Xandorra. I didn't get too involved in it since I was still in school. I've only recently became more active in 2008 and have been ever since. I made a dolling timeline to show my progress over the years as well.
3. What has kept you dolling for so long?
I just love doing it. Plain and simple. If you love to
Guide to the deviantART Related Gallery!The deviantART Related GalleryGuide to the deviantART Related Gallery! by `ginkgografix
"Submissions that are deviantART related, including deviantIDs, deviantART tutorials, dA software skins, deviations about deviantART people, and more."
The deviantART Related gallery is broad and confusing when approached with unfamiliar eyes, and so we have decided to make a quick and easy breakdown of the gallery--with examples! Each section opens with words in italics; these are the official deviantART definitions of the gallery sections and are the first thing you must consider when submitting to the gallery. The rest of the guide has been written by the dA related GMs, to try and help clarify things some. So let's get to it!
> Deviant Stamps
--Stamps (when applied to deviantART) are deviations that premium members can display in their journals or modules on their userpages. These can range in size and shape; however, the standard size is 99 x 56 pixels.

Welcome to Digital Dolls dAWelcome to Dolling!Welcome to Digital Dolls dA by ^FionaCreates
First off, we would like to welcome you to the Dolling Community on DeviantArt. We're a small community compared to other areas of the site, but we're very welcoming and encouraging of newcomers of all shapes and sizes. Due to the small size of the community, not many people seem to know much about us or our quirks and terminology, so we've compiled a brief guide to help you with dolling and where to post your dolls (as we are aware some of our categories are quite confusing).
On with the article!
What is dolling?
Dolling is where you take a basebody either created by yourself or by someone else and draw hair, clothes and accessories on it. A doll usually has a hard pixel edge and a transparent background so that it may be placed on any colored background website.
On DeviantArt, dolls are submitted into Customization > Dolls > and then into their subcategories of Pixel, Tool and misc shading.

Who is this Bunnystick you speak of?A lot of us have been dolling for several years and even some of the newer dolls recognize the name. PxT has gotten down and dirty with *bunnystick!Who is this Bunnystick you speak of? by #PxT-Magazine
First and foremost, who ARE you?
I'm Bobby, THE Bunnystick of course! I'm not sure what that means but it seems pretty awesome.
What kind of impact do you feel you have on the dolling community?
Well I want to answer that I truly do not know the answer to that question... I'll try.
Maybe I'm just being too shy? Because really, as far as my artwork is concerned, there are dollers worlds better then me that have predated and proceeded me. (Though, there were a few gems that got unreal praise such as my Riverbed Witch and ~seraphimrain's commission)
If the buzz about the community can be believed, it's both my bases and my demeanor that made a much bigger impact then my dolls ever did. Especially the bases. While I am not the first to provide bases that were “dynamic” or even “scene spe
