The Weekly Birdbath for Nov 27th - Dec 3rd

November 27th - December 3rd

Here's a good not-too-heavy-but-great-guitars tune mixed in Myna by Razorine. This one will definitely be equal to two good cups of medium roast coffee to get your energy and drive going. She uses the "Wandering" and "Whatcha Gonna Do" clips from the extensive QuantumTracks library available with Myna. Get ready to tap your toes and nod your head!

This week's Roc selection, created by Greenman, features a number of beats created in Roc itself, and then mixed in our Myna audio editor. Crystallophone arpeggios wrapping around piano chording, a tick-tock beat, and reverse clips are sure to inspire you to create your own special ambiance... and they're all drawn from Roc's library of dozens of instrument groups. You can start learning how with this challenge!


Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird... it's a plane... No, look right here - it's batman13! Focusing mainly on vector work using Raven since joining us in February, this artist creates works that are all-encompassing in genre: soft-spoken to bitter, cute to volatile, mystical and surreal (and a very yummy one as well!). Put your cape on and run, fly, or rocket-drive to Gotham's most dynamic gallery! You'll soon be a superhero worshipper.

Only 21 more shopping days til Christmas... Yikes! And you're welcome for the reminder since we know no one else will. How about an egg-cellent and inexpensive gift idea from Aviary? Step 1: Get some photographic paper for your printer. Step 2: Browse through the images created for shadowcreator's flaky "Let It Snow!" challenge. Step 3: Print your favorite images and be the first person on your block to hand out original artwork.

If you really want to be that cool, be sure to ask the creator of the image if it's OK first. Or even better, make one of your own for the challenge! :) Here's a sampling to get you started on saving gas, time, and wading through crowds:

Tip - Movable elements

A helpful feature of our new HTML5 image editor is that the text and sticker elements stay movable. You will be able to continue to move, scale and rotate the elements even after you have used a different tool - just go back into the text/sticker egg and click on the item to edit it. The stickers and text elements will only get baked into your image after using a tool that changes the entire image (e.g., Contrast, Saturation, Brightness, and Filters). Nice!
