If you got art in DA storage. Maybe back it up

If you got art in DA storage. Maybe back it up

Hey guys, how are you doing? I may be wrong about this, so feel free to correct me, but before Eclipse rolls out you might want to back up anything in your storage that means anything to you (I had a lot of stuff I did not have on pc anymore, and some with important dates to me personally) I tried looking for storage button in Eclipse and I have no idea where it's hiding if it is out there. Is it actually somewhere out there? If yes then feel free to ignore it. I would just hate to see people lose any of their old stuff. It was a nice feeling going back to my 2005 posts onward. Remembering some old friends who have not been in contact, or on DA all together in years now. I also did not realize how much more traffic I used to get, given how much lower my skill was as well. I knew it was more but not that hehe. Thousands of views, hundreds of favs. It was a different time around here for sure. Look at those : P PS: When I switch back to old DA I can't see this journal, even on

Open spots on my Discord!

Open spots on my Discord!

Hey! Do you like to draw, sharing art with other people, exchanging resources and tutorials, but feel like big channels are bit crowded? (Not to mention silly memes, cooking recipes and more) I feel like my channel is ready for some new faces. Everyone is welcoming and friendly but also silly so be ready for roasts and jokes and bad puns. We chat on and off on a daily basis so I’m looking for someone to join the shenanigans. If you feel you match that sort of energy let me know and I’ll send over an invite link : ) You must be over 18 years to join See you there!

Eclipse was hiding hundreds of messages I missed.

Eclipse was hiding hundreds of messages I missed.

With the yesterday's announcement that Eclipse will be soon rolling out permanently, I was somehow switched back to classic DA only to find out I had hundreds of journals, shouts, polls, some deviations still sitting in my inbox, unread, weeks and weeks old. Some as new as few last days. I'm finding it baffling how a site that's been in works for, what, about a year now? Is so fundamentally broken. I never get notifications on HQ updates on eclipse, and if you're in my sketchdump group you might find a lot of submissions have gone long enough into expiration because that's also never visible and I or my mod do not always remember to dig in th

See you in the next decade! Happy New Year!

See you in the next decade! Happy New Year!

Has any of you ever thought to yourself 10-20 years ago: 'Man... 2020. It's so far away. I'll be like..x years old when it comes. How crazy is that?' I surely did. I hope all of you managed to get done what you set out to do, or at least managed to get the ball rolling like some of us :P. If not, that's okay. No better time to start like right now. Feel free to share your notable events from 2019, or even this decade : ) What did you get up to? Any big life changes? The biggest one for me was finishing college, moving to UK to be with my partner, seeing Australia and I guess many more. But the latter two were definitely not something I thought I'd do in my life. Wishing you all best and wherever you are I hope you greet the New Year with good vibes. I'll see you later with a followup probably. New goals and new things I've started but not gone public with as of yet. But it will be fun for me for sure. Cheers!

Anyone have experience with portable tablets?

Anyone have experience with portable tablets?

Hi guys! I am considering investing in a tablet I could take places with me to keep up with work. Be it cintiq, ipad, surface pro etc. Does anyone have experience using these? I do need speed, precision (for fine lines and sketching) and decent battery life. Just all around reliable. I would also like to know about procreate as I never used it. How does it compare to PS? Thanks : )

Redesigning HTTYD TV dragons to movie quality?

Redesigning HTTYD TV dragons to movie quality?

I've watched the entire series of HTTYD on netflix a few months ago. After seeing the contest announcement and being reminded of all the cool movie designs vs the (sometimes very) poor tv designs, I wanted to pick a couple of worst ones and make them look like they belong in the movie. I would either draw from scratch, or more likely paint over. Do you have any suggestions of the dragons deserving most face lift? Feel free to drop me some screenshots that would work well. Cheers! : )

New slots on my discord chat will open up soon

New slots on my discord chat will open up soon

Hi all! Hows everything going? I wanted to give a quick heads up that I will be opening up doors to my discord chat as we're ready to welcome some fresh faces : ) There are about 20 of us total and we just chat about random stuff, share art, tips, tutorials and we're prone to bouts of silliness of all levels. If you want some art buddies and if you will be present at least couple times a week to hang then this might be a place for you. I have to note, however that it is an 18+ channel Have a think! You can always check it out and if the sparks aren't flying then that's okay XD Cheers!

So pillowfort? Getting less picky about favs. More

So pillowfort? Getting less picky about favs. More

Afternoon! First of all I hope you all had a nice break, or still having one : D Let's hope some good things lie ahead in 2019. Now, with Tumblr being a question mark have any of you moved to pillowfort yet? I'm just getting up to speed and I'd love to follow some more peeps. Kind of echoing that - I've recently got to a point where stopped limiting the attention to artwork i only like EXCEPTIONALLY. I've made it more of a point to myself to fav and like (depending on a site) whatever I enjoyed, which gives artists more attention and hopefully exposure they deserve. I never really go back to my favs on most of those sites due to a sheer number accumulated over the years, and I can easily find most of those artists anyway, so I might as well put it to good use. I thought maybe it would make sense to others as well : ) In any case, if you got pillowfort you can find me here https://www.pillowfort.io/Sythgara and I'm looking forward to seeing your stuff. I've been trying to find
