DRAW NOW

For weeks, we've been teasing you with our "It's coming..." campaign. Claiming that something  was innovative, expressive, inspiring, and coming... soon! With August 7th, 2010, upon us — aka deviantART's 10th birthday — the time has come to unveil the product we've spent months developing: deviantART Muro!

From start to finish, deviantART Muro allows users to create complete works of art in ways never before realized by digital drawing programs. deviantART Muro already boosts standard and interactive brushes, full-blown layer capabilities, and the ability to upload directly to your deviantART account, but we've also left room for expansion. You can expect to see many features and functions added in the coming weeks and months.

  • deviantART's free HTML5 powered drawing app
  • 21 brushes, each uniquely programmed
  • Basic and Pro modes, both free
  • Intuitive layout and functionality
  • Supports all HTML5-enabled browsers including the iPad
  • Submit drawings directly to your deviantART Gallery
  • Convenient design allows more focus on your art
  • Join fellow deviants in a public forum to share drawings
  • Start private threads in your group's Admin Area and enjoy picture comments

A handful of deviantART's top digital artists have been helping test deviantART Muro, ensuring that it's exactly what they, and the community, would expect from our top-tier drawing tool. The nine deviations to the right were created exclusively with deviantART Muro and accurately depict the tool's wide range of drawing capabilities.

The time has come for you to start using deviantART Muro! The standalone tool is available in both Basic and Pro modes — Basic for beginning artists and Pro for more experienced users.

If you're interested in sharing drawings with friends, two options are available via Basic mode.

Participate in the deviantART Muro forum to share drawing enabled forum comments.

Groups can choose to allow drawing enabled comments in the Private Discussion Forum of their Admin Area.

DRAW NOW deviantART MURO FORUM

We've been developing deviantART Muro for many months now and to finally release it to the world is an important and special moment for us. Many conversations have brought us to this point and we've come to realize that making deviantART Muro as widely adoptable as possible, while still giving enthusiasts options for expansion, is one of the tool's most integral features.

Deviants can sit down with deviantART Muro and have fun from the first stroke, or can spend hours crafting the perfect masterpiece. An intuitive drawing tool that's easy to understand and master, with the benefit of being contained within a single browser window, we truly believe that deviantART Muro will revolutionize how art is created and shared on the Internet. The work our developers and engineers have put into this product is inspiring and is a testament to deviantART's commitment for enhancing and revitalizing the arts.

Please join me in leaving your mark with deviantART Muro.

DeviantArt muro is only available online -- not for download.  It's free to use and you can get started here: muro.deviantart.com ;)

Thanks Heidi, Do you work for the web site? If so, i totally suggest making it a stand alone program for download. So many people could utilize it, and it would be so useful. Right?

I do work for DeviantArt.  :)  While we don't have any immediate plans to make DeviantArt muro a standalone program, I'll pass along your feedback to our development team.

Have you ever tried Autodesk SketchBook

I surprisingly have not :/ but it looks promising. One last question, could you possibly help me understand the import tool in the muro program? Sometimes drawings don't import and i was wandering if there were a bug or a problem on my end. Anyway, Thank you for your help Heidi.

I cannot get a new canvas to load at all, it just isn't working, I have never had a problem with it before, I believe it may be due to the new upgrades they are currently adding and I am extremely frustrated about it...when the mood and inspiration strikes an artist needs to be able to act upon them so I am a bit angry now, fix it please!!!!!!

Is there any way to make circles? I mean to not make those sharp circles you can draw with your mouse/finger, but the automatic ones?

AfricanAmericanAnime Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The little square with the dots... Click on that...

Then press the circle with the + sign .. (Or the negative sign)... Paint in or around it

That's as close as I've gotten

I have a question- how can I make the layer on 'Multiply' like I can on Chibipaint? it's hard to explain, but I'm still very new to deviantart and when I draw, I want to be able to draw my lineart and then color it in with another layer, but I can't figure out how to do that yet. Can anyone help? Thanks!

In the box where it tells you layers, the bottom has an opacity bar thing. Under that there are 4 symbols. find the + and
 if you press it, you should gain another layer. I hope this helps!
