Renamed Landscape and Still LifeHey everybody,
just wanted to let you know that I renamed "Landscape and Still Life" to "Landscape and Inanimate Objects" because we have been getting lots of submissions to this category which actually are paintings of animate - i.e. alive - beings.
(Which is not a problem at all, because we can easily move those paintings to the appropriate folder, but it is a rather tedious task).
So, don't let me further disturb you, go ahead an paint!
Submission Limits | Mypaint 1.1 for WindowsHey MyPainters!
You might have noticed that we didn't accept a lot of submissions in the last couple of weeks. This is due to the fact that we haven't got many active moderators and that we get lots of submissions. The latter is why we set the global submission limit to 2 deviations per day (for now - not sure if this'll actually work out all right).
Now, if you think you can help us with moderating the submission queue, feel free to send me a note
MyPaint 1.1 for Windows
Apparently the demand for MyPaint 1.1 for Windows is huge but there are some technical issues not yet solved. However, TumaGonx has built a somewhat working version of MyPaint 1.1 for Windows which you can read about and download here. Note that this is a development version, so it will break or mess up your files. Use at your own risk!
Group PermissionsWe're currently experiencing issues with Group Settings and -Permissions. Just so you know
Update: It should be possible to submit deviations again. Sorry for any inconvenience. It might happen that a lot of submissions are going to "expire"; in that case, please resubmit.
New Contributors!Welcome to our new Contributors:
:iconkaerhon: :icongraphixs6: :icononyourgoat: :iconkynlo: :iconheminder: :iconfrolicking-photons: :iconcamarolp:
Thanks for volunteering
To everybody: When submitting deviations to this group's galleries, please read our Submission Guidelines to help us have less work to do
Call for ModeratorsSome of you have already noticed that submissions to the group gallery take quite some time to get approved. This is because we are all rather busy at the moment and get lots and lots of submissions (short notice: be sure to read Guidelines to submit images to the MyPaint group and state that you used mypaint in the description of the deviation you want to submit).
So: We need your help (moderating the submission queue)!
If you're a keen user of MyPaint, a regular here at deviant art, and happy to spend a little bit of time moderating a group, please nominate yourself here. Also, feel free to second nominations or suggest others who might be keen.

Guidelines to submit images to the MyPaint groupThis is what we (the moderators) think to be the most accurate "tag" selection.

Guidelines to submit Images are coming!Hi all,
As MyPaint users community grows constantly, we have a huge amount of artwork in galleries. So it is time to reorganize things and keep them as much clean as possible.
I have started to write some new guidelines that make easier to upload the pictures to the right place and avoid unnecesary work after submiting images for administrators.
So if you see some changes in galleries is for that reason. stay tuned!
I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.
Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

July Commissions!Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas come by. I try to finish them as fast as I can but I give priority to quality over speed.
Those interested please read this:
Commission Requests List (Progress):
Everyone who requested a commission please look on the list to see the progress. <b>
Wyngro RULES -- Quick GuideKnowing what behavior is and isn't allowed in our group is a very important part of being a Wyngro member! Make sure you read through these rules carefully. Ignoring the rules of the group can result in a warning if you break them too many times!
Our rules are also much more elaborated on our RULES & ETTIQUETTE page as well, so please have a look!
The Wyngro community has a lot of rules to remember, so you might get a mod message every now and then. That’s okay! You’re not a “bad member”, so don’t worry. However, if you do, make sure you reply back to your mod message and DO NOT ignore it! Sometimes we’re simply reminding you of things for the future. All you have to do is reply back, letting us know you understand.
