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.


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.

Sup, activegamer. :) 
I can't find that "Compatible with Wacom" button that was supposed to be in the bottom-left corner! I'll just search for the plug-in the old-fashioned way.
To make legendary / profit, add function to incorporate multiple artists on streaming canvas.
On Muro, are we able to adjust the pen pressure?
