This release is specific to macOS users. Windows cursors are elsewhere in my gallery, here
23th of July 2020
I've uploaded a fixed version that PoulNyrup made me aware of - first for Windows and now with Mousecape for macOS. Thanks!
Shout out to my friends on Deviantart, Discord and Facebook for helping me and motivate me to finish this set. ✌️
Download Mousecape here: github.com/alexzielenski/Mouse…
Current version is 1813 - right at the top of of the list of releases.
The little secret is that the base arrow cursor is based a small amount on a cursor within Autodesk Sketchbook.
I liked the appearance so much that I wanted it systemwide. Now also in a darker look and gold appearance. Has animations on Busy and Wait cursors 😊
It appears to be from this gentleman;
And yes, it's possible. However, I haven't drawn anything this cartoon-y before. I've been close, but no cigar. I will investigate this procedure
The closest you can use on a Mac, via conversion, is this
You would have to download CursorCreate as outlined here, there's nothing too it really - a little tinkering. CursorCreate will accept Linux cursors and Wndows .cur and .ani via drag and drop. Export as a Mousecape file when done.
Back in the old days, when someone got a DD, there would be some kind of text explaining why the particular deviation was worthy of the award. Unfortunately this isnt possible any more in the new gallery format. So for those interested, here's the text behind the submission for DD.
Allan - feel free to remove this if you don't feel it's appropriate...
Modification of the macos/OSX interface has always been an integral part of the customization community at dA, despite this platform often presenting a significantly greater challenge to modify compared to Windows versions over the past many years. Despite these challenges, a handful of committed artists have created awe-inspiring and timeless skins for various elements of the macos/OSX GUI, skins that themselves have inspired countless other Windows themes afterwards.
The latest tool for customizing the macos cursor is Mousecape, and it's most prolific and accomplished artist is Allan Nyholm from Denmark. With his latest cursor set "Luxus 3 cursor set for Mousecape", Allan has created an immensely beautiful piece of art that all Mac users free of charge can use and enjoy every day. The work gone in to the regular and hi-dpi versions of the regular, gold & obsidian cursors is truly remarkable.
Not being content with creating this cursor set for Mac users, Allan Nyholm has made a version for Windows cursors as well. Like all excellent artists, he wants to share with everybody.
Thank you! 1995 was where it was at. I remember it as it was yesterday..... (flashback bubble pops out)
As someone in the field of eating crayons all day I can tell you that once you go black you never eat an obsidian color again.
Also, I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings and least of all the BLM folks hither and dither
Hi there Allan!
Is there any chance you could share the GOLD version of the following 32px files as png's with me?
I think they're included in your mousecape version, but not in the Windows version... I think they're really cute and would love to use either one of them as my text-marker cursor in my Windows version (32px, not 48px)...
Thanks in advance!
