deviantART muro Brushes Are Now Free!

Wed Nov 21, 2012, 1:05 PM

deviantART muro, our cutting edge in-browser drawing tool, offers a variety of different brushes for use in creating digital paintings. In the past, we've offered some brushes for free, and others as part of premium brush packs. We're happy to announce that all current brushes are now available for free!

We want to make deviantART muro a powerful artistic application for you to use, and part of that is giving you the tools to create powerful, dynamic pieces of art with the application. With access to more brushes, you'll have even more opportunity to further express yourself artistically. And best of all, it continues to be a completely free experience, powered by your This builds on our initial introduction of Redraw functionality, giving you the ability to watch recordings of artistic progress and unlock and learn from artist's individual processes.

Thank you for your support

We greatly appreciate all deviants who supported deviantART muro in its early days by purchasing our premium brush packs.  Without that support, we wouldn't have been able to continue improving deviantART muro for the benefit of the deviantART community as a whole. As a thank you, we've awarded all previous brush pack purchasers with an exclusive "Brush Lover" Profile Page badge.  Again, thank you for your support.

Hello guys! How are you?

Many of us use brushes to enhance our works result. Whether they are drawings, vectors, paintings, manipulations, photographies, etc., the truth is that brushes are many times a life savior and, they help us achieve great effects in an great and easy way.

What are brushes?
Quoting my own Tutorial, "Brushes can be compared to stamps that we use in Photoshop (or in other program like Paint Shop Pro, Illustrator, Corel PhotoPaint, etc.). The main puropse is to add extra effect or details into your digital work".

I've created 2 Tutorials exlaining how to instal & apply Photoshop Brushes and, also how to create your own Photoshop Brushes. If you find them useful, please download them and have fun!

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New

Introducing Commissions on deviantART

We've launched our new Commissions widget to everyone, enabling artists to generate real earnings through custom creations. Artists can list their commission availability through the widget on their profile, clients can then request commissions from them, and once the artist accepts, they receive payment which then shows up as profit on their My Earnings page.

Brush Updates for deviantART muro

Several additions have been made to deviantART muro in the form of new brush tools!
  • We've been beta testing a text brush that is now released to everyone. You can paint on your canvas with words, and there's a large variety of fonts to choose from!
  • Based on a suggestion by WilloughbyArevalo, we've also added to the eraser tool, so that you can erase using some of the same stylistic brushes that you use to draw! This allows for an even more dynamic creation experience with deviantART muro.

Coming Soon: The New Submit Art Page!
One of the most heavily used features on deviantART is getting an upgrade! We'll soon be releasing improvements to the submission process. From uploading and selecting files to choosing a category, every step has been re-designed and reviewed by our teams to ensure a user-friendly submission process. It's a whole new way to get your art out to the world. And with this comes new technology that will allow us to add even more features in the coming months. 

The New Submit page has been in limited release to a group of several hundred thousand deviants and we've received an amazing amount of feedback. Thanks to such feedback, we've made further improvements to the page and fixed issues that arose during the limited release.  Our data has since shown a significant increase in successful submissions among those using New Submit. Thanks again to all who have provided feedback; we're almost ready to release it to everyone!

What's New

deviantART muro Brushes Are Now Free!

deviantART muro, our cutting edge in-browser drawing tool, offers a variety of different brushes for use in creating digital paintings. In the past, we've offered some brushes for free, and others as part of premium brush packs. We're happy to announce that from today onward, we're offering all brushes for free.

Text Brush in deviantART muro (Beta Testers)

We launched a new tool to Beta Testers that allows you to paint words onto your canvas in deviantART muro!

A New deviantID

Over the course of the next few days, we'll be moving forward and transferring everyone on site over to the new deviantID widget. This widget, originally launched to beta testers in 2011 and made available to deviants early on in 2012, is designed to help deviants present themselves as artists or art appreciators, while also making it easy for other deviants to find common interests.

The deviantID widget lets you display information about yourself, your interests, and an image of what you feel represents you, all from one sleek box on your page! 

New deviantART Twitter Accounts 

Last week we added two new accounts to our network of automated Twitter accounts. We added @deviantARTdd, which tweets Daily Deviations and @dA_journals, which tweets popular Journals.

Get daily inspirational artwork delivered straight to your Twitter feed! Even when you're away from deviantART, you can stay inspired while keeping a pulse on the deviantART community.

These accounts were created to give deviantART members more exposure by increasing traffic and visibility to audiences outside of the deviantART community. They tweet recently popular deviations in a given category. If the artist has a Twitter account, their Twitter username will be included in the tweet, giving the artist's Twitter account extra exposure. Twitter usernames are pulled from the Twitter Widget on your profile. Premium Members, if you haven't already installed it, you may want to do this.

Thanks for the feedback left on last week's update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.

  • Most deviants who replied to the discussion section said that they usually accept between 3 and 5 commissions at a time, though some said they were willing to take on up to ten at a time.
  • In regard to communication with the artist/client, some prefer to use Notes, while others prefer to keep in contact via email.

Conversation in Notes
One of many ways in which messaging has developed online in the recent past is the conversation view for personal messages (e.g. how Facebook messages are displayed). What are your thoughts in regard to conversation-type layouts for personal messages? Do you find them easy to navigate or organize? If you don't like a conversation style of layout, what sort of layout do you prefer for your personal messages?

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
  • Deviants were generally positive about the beta launch of presets in deviantART muro.
  • Feedback in response to the Discuss topic varied, but the elements deviants found most essential when on mobile devices were being able to check messages and Notes, and being able to upload and submit art.
