Gifted with artistic ability or just wanting to collect some great works of art? This is the section for you!
I don't know if you would be interested in this or not Shizu, but here is a tutorial on how to make SUPER ADORABLE octopus charms! If you did these, I would totally buy one, just saying.

I can't really think of anywhere you can get them for cheap enough where you will make a profit. =/ Good luck!
Yeah, that's what I was thinking.
Those are adorable, though. I'll have to think about it. I do LOVE sculpey and I was thinking of getting some because I've made an Anime eraser before. ( A little Yachiru head; but it's suffered some damage r__r )
I'll think of something. Probably just make the heads of characters or something. -ponderponder-
EDIT:: I've decided to make little charms of character's heads out of sculpey. I'm going to get some stuff soon to make one, and as soon as I do, I'll post up a picture and see what people think.
After that I think I'll make my own thread about it all xD
I approve approve approve and approve.

I'm personally not a head person, so it isn't my cup of tea. I think the head is a little big in proportion to the bracelet. However, you have talent and it looks very good and well made. I do hope you'll consider making a pink small octopus one for me. I will definitely buy it from you.
Well the head needs to be big enough for me to do the details in the hair, so -.-;
It's not even that big, but okay.
Once I finish all the commissions I have I'll probably make a bunch of octopus ones and some other ones that Miyo suggested.
It just looks big to me. Doesn't mean that it is. Why not put a quarter next to it and take a picture so I can more accurately assess? I still said it looked good! O.o I don't want to be dishonest about my opinions....
I look forward to seeing your octopuses.
So... I had this crazy idea today that I could make stuff with Saerrix and whichever of my friends were willing to help... I'm not that great at drawing and stuff, but I do have some stuff that I can do.
We were thinking of making things like this: http://i949.photobucket.com/albums/ad335/Saerrix/0802101745.jpg These are hair clips, and also could be made into earrings (using smaller poofballs) and just little standalone birds. We also wanted to make other little animals that we could make jewelery out of, as well as fruits and vegetables or something. Stuff we could make out of the little puffs.
Also, I've made a few miniature books (about 2.5x1.5 in.) from random series that I could do. I'll get a picture later if people are interested. I've done a Death Note, the book that Kakashi reads in Naruto (I don't remember what it's called), and a copy of the Loveless playbook from Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. I could also do Zexion's lexicon (Kingdom Hearts), Ed's alchemy book (FMA), maybe just non-series-specific cute ones, and whatever else people come up with.
All of this would be sold for just a couple of dollars each, probably, depending on what it was, and I'm trying to think of other stuff we could make. Would anyone be interested?
From Eyeshield 21, Hiruma's extortion booklet. Picture under spoiler for reference. =)
Not sure if it's something you'd want to consider but I wouldn't feel like an Eyeshield fan if I didn't mention it.
Oh, I could probably make that. So you would buy something like that?
As with any artwork, it would depend on the final product as well as price.
It'd be great to see some pictures of the work you were talking about earlier since you said you were thinking about posting a few anyway. In general, I'd like to see someone strive for higher quality and put a slightly higher price tag on it than to see some work done with cheap materials at a lower price. If you were to use something like construction paper for the cover, I'd probably pass right over the books. Cardstock would be more appropriate, but I'm certain there are even better materials out there. It would be really cool to see you figure out how to do some hardbound miniature books. I think the inside of the books matter, too. Of course, you'd want paper of a decent quality but, if I am recalling correctly, the official merchandise Death Note you could purchase has a few of the names written down during the manga to make the item plot-relevant. The rest of the book could be used as the consumer pleased.
I know that, for Artist's Alley, it's simple to think about two stages when impressing people. The first is what people immediately see, which would be the cover of the book in this case (and, most likely, just the front cover.) If the person stops, you get the second stage, which would be people examining your art for potential purchase. The only time in which the content inside of the books would matter is during the second stage so, needless to say, it's more important to snag people with the cover of the book. If you think that you'd have to sacrifice book cover quality to include content, don't even worry about the content.
If you put a lot of thought into these books, I'd be interested because it's a really clever idea. To have an anime-themed pocket diary sounds really exciting!
*nodnod* I get what you're saying. I did use pretty cheap materials to make the books in the first place, but I was only making them for myself. I've made books before, so I could figure out how to make a hardcover one. That actually sounds more interesting. Thank you for the advice; that's very helpful! ^^
Didn't you write the entire play in the Loveless book? I remember reading it while standing on a table...? And I'm doing the tiny animals. I was planning on finding better materials and ways to make them, if we're doing this.
That's so cute... I would buy one of those! I need a new bag!
>,,,< thank you, I made this one for a friend. And she recieved it pretty well so I was thinking of making more.
