Is DA muro a good art program? Apr. 12th, 2012 @ 01:09 PM Reply

During a promo of Internet Explorer 9 and during my time in DeviantArt, I notice that they were showing this in browser art program made by Deviant Art called DA. I want to know if it's a decent art program to use?

No.

It's better than MS Paint...but only slighty.

If you want to use an art program there's plenty that aren't browser based and aren't shit.


I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.

It's decent. I will automatically discount all people who say Muro is horrible because it does have its limitations, but it is by no means equivalent to standard oekaki programs.

I haven't tried Sumo Paint yet, so I can't decide, but I HAVE done stuff on Muro (heck, all my sketchlines are done on Muro to say the least), and this was entirely done on Muro.

With a mouse, if I might add.

It's interesting, and actually works on my iPad, but I won't be using it to do my art... It would be cool if DA made a more full fledged program with upload straight to DA functionality. I do my painting on my iPad these days.

I thought that thing could already upload straight to DA? o.O I get what you mean about it not being fully-fledged and all...

Hands down GIMP is a far better free program. As far as features, tools, and overall usefulness I'd say it's the best you can get without a price. Legally anyway.
