Hello Danie:

Hoping you are fine. I never ask for features or advertising anywhere...but recently I've opened commissions to pay for expensive medical exams and to help my mom to pay for my dad's post-op care and needs (he had an accident at work and I want to help them as much as I can since he'll be at the hospital for months).

Here the URL: ILLUSTRATION COMMISSIONS (I have unlimited open slots) and I'll be soon opening Character Design commissions as well.

Also, I'll leave here some humble deviations for orange Whoah's:

Thank you in advance and great job in this journal, thank you for everything and bless you.

Eclipse Change Log: January 30, 2019In this week's change log, we have a small handful of bug fixes and improvements as we continue with the larger features that are in development. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!Change LogThe "add to favorites" panel on deviation pages now allows you to select multiple collections. (Popular request, suggested by @kage-niji, @sa6044, @tanyasimpson, and many others)Bios are now editable!Literature thumbnails now include four lines of preview text. (Suggested by @wynbird, @battlefairies, and many others)On the Daily Deviations page, literature now includes preview text. Various other smaller bug fixes and stability improvementsThe new "add to favorites" panel lets you easily add a deviation to many Collections. (Artwork: hidden view by @umbatman)Literature thumbs — including on the Daily Deviations page — now include preview text.Using the New Bio EditorTry the new Eclipse bio editor! When adding a bio to your Eclipse profile, we'll start you off with your bio from the old site. Please keep in mind that some elements, such as thumbnails, were not able to be transitioned to the new editor, however you can still add them to your bio. We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.

Eclipse Change Log: November 28, 2018

Thank you for your continued feedback and bug reports on DeviantArt Eclipse!

Our team has been working on customization and personalization options and we have brainstorming sessions planned where we’ll be further discussing how you’ll be able to customize and personalize your profile in Eclipse. We’ve been gathering and sorting your feedback, including the top ways you use Custom Box, and we’ll be reviewing it in these brainstorm sessions. We will have more to share soon!

In the meantime, we’re still working on other customization features already in the design stages, including editing your bio and custom cropping of your profile header art. We’ve seen some creative ways people are featuring single deviations on their profile (for example, see @ellysiumn and @katy-l-wood’s profiles), and we’re working on the ability to more-easily feature a single deviation on your profile.

Here’s this week’s change log!

Change Log

Header art quality on profiles has improved. If your header art is blurry, ensure that the original deviation is available as high resolution under “Display Options.” (Thanks, @queen-kitty, @titusweiss, @kaleidechse, @battlefairies, @yuukon, and several others who brought this up!)Fixed issues where typing in a URL in a Journals, comment, or Status Update would display the URL twice.Removed minimum character limit from Status Updates, allowing you to post a Status Update that just includes a deviation, gallery, video, or emoticon.You can now open and close Commissions from the individual Commission page.A “back to top” button added to galleries and browse pages.Badge pages are back!After posting a comment, the browser now scrolls to your comment.The toggle for Mature Content now reads “Show Mature Content” instead of “Mature Content” to prevent confusion. (Thanks for the tip, @rotane and @uszatyarbuz!)Fixed issue where tooltips would not display when hovering over the Add Deviation/Gallery/Video/Emoticon buttons on Comments, Journals, or Status Updates.Fixed issue where the “Send Note” button on profiles would open a new note with no recipient. (Thanks for spotting, @nominee84 and @mrs-durden!)Fixed issue where literature Daily Deviations displayed title twice. (Good catch, @3wyl!)The header image for Commissions is now centered.Updated the design of the “I’m open for commissions” button to make it look more prominent and clickable.Fixed issue where bolded text in comments would appear as a different color but not bold.After clearing out your notifications, the “no notifications here right now” message would be misaligned. (Thanks, @starlighthawk, @ikazon, and @sweetchimera!)Various other smaller bug fixes and changes.

Eclipse Change Log: December 5, 2018

Another week, another change log! Thank you for your continued feedback and bug reports!

Please keep in mind that larger feature requests and issues take additional time to address — but know we are actively working on them. In the meantime, we’ll continue to share these change logs with some of the smaller changes and bug fixes, so that you follow along with the progress of Eclipse.

We’ve also been receiving reports about various issues regarding images, image compression, image URLs, and filenames. DeviantArt recently switched to a new system to serve images and we’re currently looking into the issues that you’ve been reporting.

Change Log

New deviation background presets have been added!GIF avatars are now scaled scaled up properly, preserving their pixelated look without any blurring. Thank you to all those who brought up this issue!Premium Content now has a more prevalent Buy button.Mentions now contain user symbols.Fixed issue where mentions would not work when you simply typed @@username(rather than typing and selecting a username from the list).Thumbnails in Feedback notifications are now clickable.Fixed issue where mentions displayed in green rather than white.The appearance of the search box was fixed when searching from the Notes, Groups, Forums, and various other pages.Prints can now be enabled on new deviations.Fixed issue where, after adding an image or a gallery to a comment, pressing the left or right arrow keys would leave the page rather than move your cursor.Fixed issues where tooltips were cut off behind other elements of the page.Fixed issue where Eclipse would not create URLs properly for Collections with spaces or other non-alphanumeric characters in the title would, causing an error if opened on the old site.Various other smaller bug fixes and visual changes.

Eclipse Change Log: December 12, 2018

This week, nearly the whole DeviantArt team — encompassing staff members from Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Kiev, and Vancouver, to name a few — has come together at our HQ in Hollywood to focus on Eclipse and plan what’s in store for 2019.

As a reminder, we’re continuing to work on the bigger community feedback concerns — including customization and improvements to Feedback — and we hope to share more soon.

Since the holidays are coming up, and many people on our team are traveling or taking time off, we won’t have a change log to share for a short while. But we want to let you all know that we are continuing to review and analyze your feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you early next year!

Change Log

Literature descriptions are back! (Popular request!)After replying to a comment in Feedback, the notification is now automatically removed. (Popular request!)Comment link pages now have "parent" and "top" buttons, and are now centered for easy readability. (Popular request!)Scraps are back!You can now mention a deviant just by typing (rather than selecting them from the list).The Gift dropdown on profile now tells you when you've already given them a llama or they are full of cake. Removed minimum character count in Status Updates and Journals, allowing deviants to share a post that simply includes a deviation, gallery, or video.
