1M Downloads and GithubThis day marks a special milestone of achievement for the developers of Omnimo. A humble project that started almost two years ago reached one million downloads today. Most of you probably don't know that this project was supposed to be much smaller. When I came up with the early concept in the middle of March, I intended it to have approximately 12 panels and several text items.1M Downloads and Github4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Omnimo: The Beginning
Nothing more. However, shortly after the concept, Xyrfo joined the project. And with our combined passion and ambition, as well as with some help from others, we managed to create the biggest Rainmeter suite ever. Xyrfo did some amazing stuff for the project. Things without which it would just remain but a dream of a madman. But he did it! For that, he deserves no less recognition than I do.
And of course, we would like to thank the community for all the support! You guys are awesome! Nothing motivates doing a project better than to see people use and enjoy the product. W
Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

Daily Deviation Suggestion GuidelinesHow do I make a suggestion?Daily Deviation Suggestion Guidelines5 years ago in Personal More Like This
The suggestion should come from the Literature gallery.Please send your suggestions to me or Halatia, but not more than one of us! If you're sending me the note, please put "DD suggestion" in the topic, and send only one  deviation suggestion per note. It'll help me keep track of suggestions. You can also use the Suggest DD script, in which case, it'll fill everything out for you on its own, as well as make sure the artist hasn't received a DD in the last three months.If you'd like, you can add a brief description telling me why you think the piece deserves a DD.I probably won't reply. But that's only because of time-eating gremlins! I look at and read every suggestion sent to my message center.
What am I looking for?
I welcome any form of written art; if it's sitting in the Literature Gallery, I'd love to give it a read.I am looking

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

So, it just hit me the other day that CitruSmoothie needs a new mascot So I thought to make it a competition!
::If you wish to join, this is what you'll do::
Come up with a suitable design for a mascot that you think represents CitruSmoothie (something "fruity" is to be preferred )
Make the design into a model edit
Post a picture with your creation here on DA and comment in this journal with a link to your deviation.
I will personally choose the winner at the end of the competition.
Only ONE entry per DA user please. If you submit several, only the first one will count.
I don't rly care what parts you use (as long as they look good ^^) so if you feel you want to take parts from a "non-editable" model, I seriously wouldn't
Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.shHello everyone!Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.sh3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Today we're bringing you some major changes for Film & Animation deviations, and also some new tools for deviantART muro and Sta.sh Writer!
Film submission through Sta.sh
The first major change for Film is that Sta.sh is now properly equipped to support film submissions! While it was sort of possible in the past, Sta.sh can now store and submit film files the same way other filetypes can be stored and submitted.
Keep in mind that you have to have film submission privileges in order to submit films to deviantART. For more information on this, please read this FAQ: :faq842:
Film Deviation Page Changes
The second change is regarding the layout of film deviations. The old film layout was designed with an older version of deviantART in mind, and this change places Film submissions back up to speed with the rest of the site. The Film deviation page has been updated to
How correctly install GDIPPHi, i receive a lot of messages by people who want install GDIPP( cause GDI++ is crappy!!), so here is the good way:How correctly install GDIPP4 years ago in Personal More Like This
➊ Install GDIPP 0.7.6 in Registry( not in services, you will see it during the installation) , download: http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/downloads/list
➋ Copy the 2dll's in "C:\Program Files\gdipp" to "C:\Windows\system32"( for 64 users: 4 dll's: "sytem32"( for 64 bit dll's)+"syswow64"( for 32 bit dll's) ), like: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/423903436372Capture.png
➌ Restart( done)
Edit ( 12 oct 2012):
Now, i use 0.9.1 version, it works better and no replacement of dll needed ( only install it and go..!), if you use Firefox or other: uncheck "material acceleration..." in Firefox ( or other) options!!
If some characters look a little craps in some applications: make an exeption in "C:\Program Files (x86)\gdipp\gdipp_setting.xml" with your notepad.

As a storyboard and comic artist, I often do a lot of fight and action scenes, having to distill a lot of motion into a single still image.
For this challenge I’d love to see what kinds of things you guys come up with and how you convey the idea of motion in a single image.

Contest Winners!It may have only been ten entries long, but our first contest was a doozy to judge. Partly due to the nature of the contest, but also due to the wide range of themes explored by the participants, from romance to mental batles. Our judges were looking for cohesion and creativity, and I do believe we found both. Without further ado, here are the winners!Contest Winners!1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
An Anthology of Flowers by introverted-ghost
An interesting theme and well thought-out reasoning took the judges near-unanimously. Inspired by Stephen Chobsky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, introverted-ghost uses her feature to consider what it means to be an introvert, and does so in stylish, lyrical prose.

It's that time of year - everybody who is anybody is getting their airmiles on and jetting off somewhere exotic right? Soggy weekends in Cornwall definitely count! But aside from topping up a tan or getting a healthy dose of clean air in a mountain range, what else can you achieve from a holiday?
The possibilities...artistically...are endless! And whether or not you are going abroad or staying in your home town the opportunities to create some Travel Portrait Photography can present themselves at any moment.
Besides if you aren't going anywhere this season - let the interesting people come to you!
So where do you start? You can achieve awesome portraiture with anything as simple as a digital point and shoot. But in SLR terms a 35mm camera is the best to create portraits.
