Hours passed.. 16 megabytes used.. 1210 deviant icons saved.. Pain in eyes, hands, and fingers.. The only remembered key combinations on keyboard are Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V..
This took forever, but once i finished I was very proud of myself. I had to retrieve all of the icons with my 56k and it took probably 2 or 3 hours. I dont know how long it took for the actual "mosiac" (if thats what you would call it) because I lost my sense of time. If you are not there, please comment and il make sure you are if i make another. O_O I can almost bet that there are no duplicates and that you are probably on there My eyes are in pain and its hard to blink. I wouldn't suggest doing this.. But whatever.. Enjoy!
For those who prefer dAv4. I give you, 'good 'ol dA', a deviantSkin for firefox and opera users. This skin makes your favourite site look like you favourite site used to look like. ( more info..)
This skin isn't available at the time. I took it down because it was outdated and updating it with dAv6 around the corner doesn't make much sense. Maybe I'll update it to work with dAv6. No promises though
I'll probably move this to scraps eventually. Anyway, I've been vaguely wondering about getting a tattoo for ages but could never think what. Now I've kinda decided that a quill would be appropriate, so this is a test sketch. What do you think? (be kind, I've never designed a tattoo before)
`ginkgografix is holding a Gallery Design contest ( [link] ), so I thought maybe I should enter and create a matching gallery design for my "Simple and Clean" Journal Design: [link] Might create something else aswell if I have other ideas, but I thought I should just take this opportunity while I'm in the mood to create something.
So the whole idea (besides the fact that it has to match the Journal) is that a gallery should be very very simple, so that the artwork can stand out. So I kept even the colors simple, just grayscale, black on white and white on black, and light gray background and a little while frame for the artwork (that turns black/dark gray on hover). Also, you may have noticed that there's no text under the thumbnails. Yes, that was on purpose. To keep it even MORE simple and clean. Besides, how often do you read the text under the thumbnails? You see you like the art you open it to see it bigger and and after that you look at the title and artist's name. And like this it gives the impression of paintings on a gallery wall even more. On the left there is the text/description with bold and very visible headlines, just like in an art gallery where there's like a wall with with lots of text, with stuff about the artist or artwork, etc. Basically I wanted this to be like a real gallery. Simple minimal, uncluttered, that makes the art stand out.
