Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new featuresAt the very end of 2012, the code of the famous free and open-source digital-painting program Mypaint 1.1 was released. If you still using Mypaint 1.0 , you might be interested to see what happened into this one year of change. For reading an excellent review about it , please read the very cool and full article wrote by Alexandre Prokoudine on Libre Graphic World , he also made a cool video.Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new features3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here I will focus on writing a review for Mypaint 1.0 user, to let them know what changed and how they will benefit from it.
On Canvas Notifications
Now Mypaint is a bit more talkative when you press '+' or '-' on the keyboard to zoom with the 'Control+Space' shortcut. It was difficult back to Mypaint 1.0 days to have an idea of the actual zoom level. For the future development , this box system was made to be reusable ; so Mypaint might have better and better visual feedbacks on the next versions.The notifications are activated by defaults , and concern for the moment only

Hope everyone's had a nice Christmas and new year
It's 2012, the year London makes a fool of it's self with the Olympics and then the planet implodes with embarrassment and the world ends Should be a fun year!
So what's everyone's hopes for this year? Both on dA and off.
Personally I'm really looking forward to some of the new features we've got planned for the year ahead
One of them has been snuk into this journal
If there's something new you'd like to see on dA this year what would it be? Drop a comment (even if it has nothing to do with dA) it's been a while since I've posted a proper journal, and it's nice to have a catch up and see how people have been

If you haven't received any prior confirmation, please let this email serve as receipt of your order, as well as your payment - and once again our appreciation for the continued support.

dA in 10 years?I recently read a forum thread found here: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/131114/ about where everyone thought deviantART would be in 10 years. Many people said we'd have sold out to MSN or AOL. Others said we'd be limiting uploads for non-subscribers and cutting off access to services.dA in 10 years?12 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's two ways to take this I suppose: Either it's a general feeling that this thing is too good to be true in its current form. Or somehow it's expected that a service growing so quickly would somehow be forced to sell out.
Neither is true. This was my response:
I think deviantART will be looked upon as a revolution unto itself. Having been able to scale not only it's infrastructure but it's community and spawned sub-communities (within the garden of deviantART) to include the various arts of hundreds of millions of artists worldwide.
And as the ultimate complement, it will be taken completely for granted. A service fully integrated in to daily li
New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

Species-A-Day Macro Challenge!Alright, so I was out in the garden today and a "challenge" idea came to mind. Here's how it goes:Species-A-Day Macro Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Take insect macros every day, and 2.) Post a different species for each day.
Thinking a month would be a fairly challenging period of time, so I'm going to start mine tomorrow (June 10th) and go until July 10th. So you should end up with an album of 30 or so images, all of a different species of insect. The photo that you post for each day MUST have been taken on that day, so no using multiple photos from any single day.
I want to get my macro skills back. I feel like it's been ages since I took a good insect photo, so this will be good practice for shooting in all kinds of conditions since the weather is likely to change. I want to get back that sense of patience that I used to have when it came to macro photography This will also force me to be more active, posting my images here at the end of every day.
Side note, dead insects DO count, but only
Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)Ohhhh goodness... where to begin? Back from a rather crazy camping trip. Crazy in ways both good and bad. Decided to spend a weekend in the Black Hills since Chris (INTOtheRFD) had been through a couple long rough weeks of work and wanted some down time. There were also storm chances every day/night, which were very enticing. And ever since Chris and I visited there for the first time in late 2012, we started thinking about moving there. Since Sarah (JupiterLily) is here now, we figured what better opportunity to show her what could possibly be our future home?Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Left Friday morning to meet up with Chris, and headed west on I-90 through South Dakota towards Rapid City. Looked like an okay chase day, and stuff was finally starting to fire west of the Black Hills as we reached Kadoka. Headed west and south into the Black Hills, only to watch our storm die before it got to us. This would soon become the theme of the trip Called it a day and shot the sunset at Sylvan Lake.

I basically had nothing to do today, and decided to show all my fabulous watchers how much they mean to me I've reached over 60 now () and figured I'd do what everybody seems to be doing these days: make a feature dedicaded to those amazing people who have shown me sooooo much support!!! You have no idea how much I appreciate it You guys are simply the best (no, I'm not gonna go all Tina Turner on you ) I've gone through every single gallery, and picked my favorite piece of work from each person! Sadly, not all my watchers post work of their own, so they're not here, but they mean just as much to me nevertheless

We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards.

Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20132 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
