deviantaRT is applying to manage a new Top Level Domain called .art
Top Level Domain (TLD) is the technical name for ".com," ".net," ".org," or ".fr". These TLDs are controlled and issued by a worldwide organization called ICANN, short for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. When ICANN announced that it would accept applications for new TLDs, deviantART quickly realized that someone would try to nab ".art."
DeviantART is committed to have the .art TLD in the hands of representatives of the arts; people who know something about the Internet and the way art is presented and enabled by the Internet. Nobody has more experience with this than the deviantART community that we are all building, participating in, and sharing with each other every day.
In order to secure .art into the right hands, deviantA
Lumi, a first previewHey ! :]Lumi, a first preview4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've made some new changes on Lumi, my future Visual Style for Windows 7. It will continue to change in some details, and it's certainly not over yet, different parts are still the one from Soft7.
Anyway here's the actual result :
White isn't it ? ^^
My main ideas were :
more "minimal", less transparent, and add a tiny color.
The window on top left is active, the others are inactive (mainly a difference in the shadow, but the windows themselves are a bit more transparent).
The "Yes" button is hovered, like the Music icons. The DVD drive is selected
I believe the caption buttons are too subtle right now, and I'm still trying to do a nice hover effect, subtle but visible.
It includes the new icons on the Navigation Pane, obviously based on the icons in Mac OS Lion, entirely made from scratch (all of them) with the subtle blue of the theme.
By the way, don't get it wrong, I hardly have time to play all t

:iconohnoesplz:The new possibility on to start a donation pool is almost a dumb feature.More amd more people send notes or beg on the artist's pages for points.Mostly these are people you don't know, who never faved or commented anything you've made.
1 point is one cent. Will they really sell their pride for 1 cent? Just wondering.
The next step is to sell their souls. There are some guys on DA who sell their faves, features and comments for points.For 200 points, they fave your complete gallery, give you a feature and watch you.Is this the way should work? I don't think so.Can someone really be glad about faves he bought?
DA is a commercial page, and that's okay.But it shouldn't have so much "commercial" users.
I don't mean the users who start a donation pool to upgrade their groups.This is something that
2011 As Seen Through Art2011 was full of emotional events the world around, and our community responded at unprecedented levels. From natural disasters to historical celebrations, entertainment milestones to tearful goodbyes, our community spoke out like no other community can — artistically, creatively, and emotionally. In many ways, last year marked the final chapter of a few eras, opening the door to new beginnings for 2012.

Sans serif — Italics & weights
In the previous article of the typography series I presented some of the basic principles of type design and we started designing a geometric sans typeface such as Futura. In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.
Before we start

Spirit Day: A Bi VoiceIn honour of Spirit Day, I would like to share something about my own experiences with people's reactions to my sexuality. When asked my sexual orientation, I say 'bisexual' simply because it's more concise than the things I find attractive in a person don't tend to be gender specific so what does or doesn't dangle between a person's legs is as irrelevant to me as the colour of their eyes or the size of their feet when it comes to assessing whether or not they are physically, intellectually or emotionally appealing.Spirit Day: A Bi Voice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That doesn't sound too crazy, right? I mean, plenty of people are bisexual. It shouldn't be a big deal. But for some reason, it often is. I've always been pretty comfortable talking about my sexuality in relevant contexts. I'm not confrontational or militant about it, I don't wear an "I'm bisexual, lets talk about me!" t-shirt and I never felt the need to come out, because I always figured that if people want to make assumptions about who I find attractive, that's th

Months have passed since our heroes have destroyed XANA, the AI who menaced the world. Daily routine has resumed at Kadic. The heroes have gone up a year in school. Odd, Ulrich, Jeremie and Aelita are now in year 10…and still under the tyranny of Jim. The latter is in a computer room for a class of “cybersport.” While the teacher fights with the computer, trying to find the CD drive, he receives a violent electric discharge which propels far from the computer as the class laughs on…except for Aelita who is staring with true concern at the computer screens displaying lines of familiar code…
Yumi has moved into year 11…and William along with her. Things haven’t changed; the hand

Kadic welcomes a new student to its ranks; Laura Gauthier. Blonde and charming, she proves to be a bright student in front of her teacher during first period. While Jeremie’s fatigue stops him from completing the equation on the board, Laura takes his place and finishes the difficult equation with vigour.
The new student is noticed by the group of heroes. Grumpy about his failure, Jeremie sulks while Odd and Ulrich rub it in. It is however Aelita who frowns while Laura reappears and seems to take an interest in Jeremie.
While the heroes talk about the Cortex and a new vehicle which Jeremie had programmed to allow them to not be devirtualised by the multiple topological movements that characterise the Cortex, L

Good NewsI'm excited to let you know that Autodesk, Inc. has made an investment in deviantART and that one of Autodesk's top executives, Samir Hanna, Vice President of the Autodesk Consumer Group, will become an observer on the deviantART Board of Directors.Good News2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Autodesk has over 30 years of history in helping designers create amazing things. You may know Autodesk for apps like SketchBook and Pixlr for drawing, illustration, and image editing, or for software like 3ds Max and Maya, which are used by the top film and game studios around the world to create fantastically realistic 3D characters, environments, and effects. Amazing fact: the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects use Autodesk software. Autodesk is also known for engineering software like AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit, which has been used to design some of the world’s tallest buildings, longest bridges, and most incredible machines.

Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O
Canon 5DMk2 in the lake...Last month I was out shooting by a beautiful lake, all in winter spirit with ice along the shoreline.

So, I decide I wanna get the more "low" shot and walked down to the surface. I gently place the tripod, with camera attached to of course, two legs on the ice and the third on solid ground. Checked it twice, it was sturdy and would be still. Yeah...
Composition is set and placing of the 10 stop filter for a long exposure, check. I stand up and look around, as the camera screams beautifully with it's open mirror, soaking up every glimpse of light around.
The shot is captured and I see it's being saved down the card. As I lean to pick up the camera I see the third leg slip from the rock and down between the ice and rock, where there wasn't a hole 2 minutes ago! Of course this ice wasn't solid, after all.... dumb idiot.. It gently moved back and f
