Now You Can Import Images Into dA muro!Greetings beta testers, you've asked for it, and now it's here!Now You Can Import Images Into dA muro!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can now import images right into :damuro: in just 4 easy steps!
1) Select the "Import Image as Layer" option from the File menu
2) Pick your favorite sad Keanu picture from your harddrive
3) Adjust the size, angle, and position that you would like Keanu to be at
4) Press OK
Rumor has it that the new feature even works with images that do not have Keanu in them, but nobody on dA staff could be bothered to see if this is true.
Remember if spot any bugs make sure you submit them to the issue tracker and we'll get them fixed up as soon as possible!
EDIT: Just to clarify, you need to be in pro mode to see this feature.
EDIT 2: The comments in this blog indicate that I should have had a disclaimer. Sad Keanu was put in as a joke because that was our test ima

Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev
The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They

Let The Light In: Art Features:icongood-intention:Let The Light In: Art Features2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.
What Is An Art Feature?
An Art Feature is a journal (blog / article) that showcases deviations from one, or multiple artists. You may peruse the Art Feature Folder for some examples. Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t
Quiet Silence breeds thought, and frankly, I find it terrifying. It seems like most of us do, since we tend to avoiding it. People don't want to face their thoughts; many of us are haunted by things we'd rather not think about.Quiet1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've become an addict to my anesthetic habits; music, movies, video-games, etc. but that's not all, because since one thing alone can't keep me occupied, I resort to multi-tasking. I pile on the media 'til I'm drowning in white noise, all to avoid the pain of having to deal with my thoughts.
Recently I turned it all off, just for a few minutes. I shut off my cell-phone and logged out of Skype, I closed out of Facebook and took off my headset, then I painted in utter silence. It didn't last long, eventually my thoughts caught up with me, but I got a glimpse of something; I shook loose some of the blockage in my head.

Hard core, manToday at work, an older gentleman came in and asked how much it would cost to make copies of nine pages from a law book. I told him that at fifteen cents per page, his order would cost $1.35. He put one elbow on the counter, waggled his eyebrows, and said, “I bet you could use that for your party money, huh?”Hard core, man1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I had to refrain from cackling because a) $1.35 won’t even buy a pack of those noisemakers you use to annoy your parents on New Year’s Eve and b) I am the absolute farthest thing from a party girl ever. My idea of a party involves Disney karaoke, sliding on the tile in my socks, and rolling around on the floor until my gas is gone. I have had, in total, approximately four to five whole glasses of wine in my entire life. I do not twerk, grind, bump, or air hump. I do not shake my thing up in the club with my homies. I do not participate in keggers. The shortest skirt I own comes to the middle of my knees. I would rather wear a bustle than

It was at the post-office yesterday already, but I was delivering an oilpainting to a customer so I wasn't able to pick it up... T^T
Well, today I went to see a dentist and their office is right next to the post-office, so I got two birds with one stone! (and a 321€ bill for my teeth being fixed, omfg. x_x)
Aaaaaanyway! Here's how it fits into my desk:
This image does not represent the truth that is my desk, though; usually it's cluttered with coffee-cups, trash and things that could be better suited elsewhere but I've left them on my table for whatever reason and they take up a lot space!
But yeah, so basically the thing arrived in one piece (phew), had all necessary pieces and cords included and the installation didn't take too long either. Happy happy! It seems to be working just fine. *crosses fingers too though..!*

Yes, we're back on the gun-debate-thing. And this time the pro-gun crowd are pissing me off because they've set in motion a chain of events that will stifle the potentially fabulous ability to transfer what you create on your computer into the real world.
The man behind it harps on about liberty being his motivation for doing it.
Liberty has to be tempered with responsibility, otherwise you just have anarchy. Using new technology to build a gun doesn't make you a champion for freedom, it makes you an attention seeking moron who gives the powers-that-be REASON to restrict it.
