Auto resizing your art since March 18th!
I've just been made aware that DA has decided to (temporarily?) take away our choice of showcasing art in any width we desire.
That's right- if you upload a new deviation right now, you won't get a choice of "900 width" or "display original size".
Everything I upload, auto-resizes!

I decided to write a news article about this development of interest, since I don't see any official news or topics about this new implementation anywhere... only after 30 minutes found a topic about it on the forum.
What if today I want to upload a comic book artwork that is MEANT to be scrolled horizontally with very little height?
What if today I want to show a wallpaper that's 1800 pixels wide?
Statistically, only 10-20% of people click the "download" button- that means 80-90% of watchers will miss out on what I want to REALLY show.
Give me back my "display art in resolution that I originally uploaded it in" button.
From the forum post on the issue:
"We've recently changed our requirements for t

Boris Vallejo

Born in Lima, Peru, Boris attended the National School of Fine Arts in his native country before immigrating to the United States in 1964.  He has since done a great volume of work for the Fantasy field, having worked for virtually every major publishing house with a science fiction/fantasy line. Boris has also illustrated for album covers, video box art and motion picture advertising.

His mastery of oil painting is immediately and abundantly clear to anyone who looks at his work, and his classic sense is as much an hom

Warren Ellis invites remakes of Superman #1
Warren Ellis has, over at his discussion site, invited people to remake the cover of the first Superman comic. But there are conditions:
"You are an artist/designer. You have to put together the cover for a comic called SUPERMAN. It is issue 1 of this book.
You have been told that Superman is a man who dresses predominantly in a shade of blue, and wears a red S symbol. You know nothing else about the character.
And that's it."
There are some amazing contributions already, and the thing ends this Sunday. So come on, people, I'd love to see some of the amazing talent at dA try their hands at this.

UnseenArtists Self Pimp-Out Vol. 2 [MC]
:wave: Welcome to the second volume of the UnseenArtists Self Pimp-Out news article series! This is a bi-weekly series that showcases works from members of the group. The goal help artists gain exposure, even if it is just a little bit. Be sure to check out each of these artists and support them.
Note: Some pieces contain mature content, so view at your own risk, but I think we're all adult enough to handle it. :)

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    Since August 26th, 2005, so I'm coming up on my tenth anniversary as a Deviant.

  2. What does your username mean?

    Nothing mysterious about it, my real name is Jon, my middle and last initials are A and S, and I was born in 1972. Actually, the whole "72" thing is just something I added, since I'm hardly the only Jonas around.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    Procrastinator, self-doubter, introvert

  4. Are you left or right handed?


  5. What was your first deviation?

    Approaching the Goddess by Jonas72
    Hm, I see lots of things I would do different today, but I'm actually still quite happy with this.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    Space art/science fiction, if that can be counted as a type of art.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    I don't think I have a particular style, but I'd very much like to find my "voice" in art, I feel I'm a little too much all over the place.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    interastrum iunctio by kirby117

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Awesome scifi art

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    You want me to pick one out of millions? Impossible!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    This one, on the other hand, is easy, as one of my favourite writers is here: CliveBarker

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    Difficult to say, but when I was active in the chat rooms, I got lots of excellent advice and encouragement from people there.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    My Wacom Intous Pro that my beloved bought me.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    I'm pretty much always at my desk when creating art.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    All the good times we used to have in the Digital Media chatroom.

  • Listening to: The News
  • Reading: Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
  • Watching: Sense8
  • Playing: Dishonored
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: The dark nectar of life, AKA coffee
