I got tagged by Lyricanna (thank you :heart:)

The rules are really simple!
You have to paste the thumbs of 2 or 3 deviations of yours, that you posted around this date a year ago.
Then you tag 5 friends, and they shall do the same thing in their journals.
Let's see what comes out
La la la la

I have no deviations for July, 29th (or for July). The closest I have is June and August:
Through the Ages 2013 - Judge doll by zapatonesGlam's Redoll by zapatonesHand by zapatones
My judge doll for Through the Ages (RIP), my redoll of TheThirdAct's doll and a hand I sketched while helping DulcetFancy make some graphics that went way overboard. It's smaller than I thought it was while working on it :(

I tag:
Becky-RanRan
Breebles
DulcetFancy
Fenix-Acuarelado

Yes :D I am so glad to see dolling hasnt died off!
I have wanted to get back into this so much but couldnt find anything current until now
Prepare to be stalked as you are the only string to to connect me with the comunity I have found thus far.
Take pity on me please and share any comunitys/groups of dollers and then If you feel so inclined I have older works of dolling in the recesses of my gallerie that you may enjoy :)

Such a geat responsibility :P Let's see. There are some DA groups dedicated to dolling, although the big anime base invasion makes it harder to find communities of old school dollers. You could start by checking Growing-Dollers to find more dollers and interesting ideas. Minishizzle used to be a group devoted to one-round contests and fun events. It seems to be dead now, but you can find lots of dollers among its members and some fun ideas and challenges. There are three groups founded by the same person that may make it easier to find resources: Never Stop Dolling, a dolling group; Dolling Base Catalog which collects original bases to make base hunting easier (both have zero tolerance for traced bases); and Dolling Tutorials, which collects tutorials that may be useful for dollers. It features dolling tutorials, but also digital painting, drawing and pixel art. All these groups have at least one affiliate, so checking those may be a good idea as well.

Outside of DA, I think the biggest community as of now is GLAM!, which is currently hosting a redoll event. Sign ups end today, so if you're interested, please check it out. All you have to do is get an account (free) and post some select dolls of yours here. Once sign ups are closed, participants will be arranged in pairs so you'll be redolling someone elses work. You will be sent all their submitted dolls and you'll pick the one you like the most. There's a catch, though. You have to add some changes to it so it isn't an exact replica. I like to think of it as reinterpreting a theme and adding your own touch to it. This was my redoll for last year.

Aside from Glam, there are other communities like Dollstalgia, a small community of nostalgic dollers with a fantasy theme. It may or may not be your style, but it also has some interesting events. Black Sheep Asylum is a more neutral forum, with no set theme. It does have a pretty laid back attitude which makes it a nice place to visit from time to time. I'm keeping the bestest of all for last, though: The Limelight Cafe. I admit that I'm not as active as I should, but it's the most interesting forum I've been to since I took up dolling. It has challenges similar to base races, but they apply it to everything: bases, themes, fantasy or history, just to name a few. There's always something going on and it does have a very welcoming and supporting community. It also has a DA group: The Limelight Cafe. These forums are on the small side, so they tend to get pretty inactive from time to time. I know for sure that there are other communities, but I'm not a member of them, so I can't tell how active they are. Pixel Princess has a pretty cutesy look (and you need to register to see the forum) but it has some interesting activities like base races. They also seem to have monthly activities. I used to be a member a while back, and I liked it in there. But I'm pretty much a lurker, so I always miss on the important stuff, like logging in your account before it gets deleted. Mouldycat has a contest forum with some interesting events going on here. That's all I can think of right now. I'll think of more and let you know if I find them.
