Our awesome partners. Who we like.

Here's a little something i have been working on lately, and I am plan to launch it early next week! It's a training ground for artists to collaborate, improve, and recieve feedback - a hacker league for artists (as Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian may say.) It's pretty similar to what Thiefoworld does with SketchMatch and mlpdrawingschool does with DrawAlong.

Here are two screenshots I wanted to share:

Upload Page

You can draw from Muro (via the JavaScript API) or Sketchbook for Windows (via upload paths) or Sumo Paint (if a user has flash installed) and your image will be uploaded straight to the service once you save.

Top of the Entry Page

It's pretty simple and self-explanatory. I also created a lightbox model similar to deviantART that zooms in on an image when a user clicks on it.

(Excuse the crappy drawing, I wanted to draw something in Muro without crashing Safari. dt has told me that they are working on stability fixes when it comes to Muro on the iPad, but you get  the point :P)

Comments can be handled through Disqus or deviantART (experimental) and they can be disabled. A user can request critique, although critique will be more along the short lines of critical feedback instead of a 100 word star rating.

And that shall be all for now. If you're interested in when this thing launches, watch my journal! :)

This is so cool, right!?

Getting Started with LESS

The syntax goes a little like this:

More CSS Mojo!
