It's coming

DeviantArt, a social network for artists, has created Muro, a free Web-based drawing tool.

This work, titled "It's coming," is one of several pieces already created using Muro.

Is she coming too?

While not aiming to compete feature-wise with tools like Adobe Photoshop, DeviantArt hopes Muro will offer a tool that is both simple to use and ubiquitous, not to mention free.

Another teaser piece

This is another in a series of drawings posted to DeviantArt to tease the arrival of Muro, which launched this week.

Because it is based in HTML5, Muro is designed to work on devices like the iPad, as well as all manner of computers.

Muro has more than 20 brushes, supports both a basic and pro mode, and supports various layers and levels of opacity. Projects can be saved either to a computer's hard drive or directly to one's DeviantArt gallery.
