Site Update



​deviantART muro, dA's cutting edge in-browser drawing tool, offers a variety of different brushes for use in creating digital paintings. In the past, dA offered some brushes for free, and others as part of premium brush packs. We're happy to announce that from today onward, we're offering all brushes for free.

dA? launched a new tool to Beta Testers that allows to paint words onto your canvas in deviantART muro!

​Over the course of the next few days, dA will be moving forward and transferring everyone on site over to the new deviantID widget. This widget, originally launched to beta testers in 2011 and made available to deviants early on in 2012, is designed to help deviants present themselves as artists or art appreciators, while also making it easy for other deviants to find common interests.

The deviantID widget lets you display information about yourself, your interests, and an image of what you feel represents you, all from one sleek box on your page!?

Last week we added two new accounts to our network of automated Twitter accounts. We added @deviantARTdd, which tweets Daily Deviations and @dA_journals, which tweets popular Journals.

Get daily inspirational artwork delivered straight to your Twitter feed! Even when you're away from deviantART, you can stay inspired while keeping a pulse on the deviantART community.

These accounts were created to give deviantART members more exposure by increasing traffic and visibility to audiences outside of the deviantART community. They tweet recently popular deviations in a given category. If the artist has a Twitter account, their Twitter username will be included in the tweet, giving the artist's Twitter account extra exposure. Twitter usernames are pulled from the Twitter Widget on your profile. Premium Members , if you haven't already installed it, you may want to do this.
