We've been enjoying our new site and server for just over a week now, and the moving dust is starting to settle. Forum participation is way up, a steady stream of images has begun being uploaded to the site (and receiving critiques where requested!) and a flurry of bug fixes have gone out over the past 7 days.
This morning, I get to announce a great new feature has gone live!
You can now choose to display practice images as black and white for values study, as well as flip the practice images horizontally and vertically for more advanced exercises in drawing what you see.
These buttons are only available to members who have a full subscription. Redeeming your backer code counts! :)
Additionally, these features will only work in relatively modern browsers. If you're clicking the buttons and nothing is happening, we strongly recommend running a browser update.
Progress on other features
As promised, we're still on track to release a first-time-drawing tutorial, in-class drawing tips and guidance and add two new "official" photo bundles by the end of the month. Keep an eye on the news or our Facebook page for further announcements as these (and other) features go live.
Looking for your backer code?
A quick reminder that ALL backer codes have now been sent via email. If you supported our fundraiser and for some reason have not received yours, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
First-ever 7 day streak badges
I also want to extend a congratulations to the following 7 users, for being the first people ever to unlock the new "7 day practice streak" achievement badge: Line, Gordon Bennett, cregenbo, axmchr9004, Windmill Key, jodimation, and Edgardo
Keep practicing, friends! You're doing amazing!
