Hey guys, when you’ve visited the blog today, you probably noticed our all new blog design 🙂 We’ve been tinkering with this for quite a while. We are happy to be able to share the fruits of our work today. Of course, the new design doesn’t only bring cosmetic changes. It brings optimisation for larger screen sizes, for touch- and retina-displays, all while the layout fluidly adapts to the size of your device. This so called “responsive” design makes it much more comfortable to enjoy Tale of Painters on your mobile devices.
But that’s not all. We’re also pleased to share our new Youtube channel, a handy site to find all of ThirdEyeNuke’s and Garfy’s video in one place. Check it out and subscribe merrily! We’ve also got a new Pinterest board, but we’d like to introduce that on another occasion, as we’re still working on that.
We hope you enjoy the new design and if you encounter any problems, please share them in the comments along with your device, operating system and browser.

The new look is really cool. Nice work 🙂
Looking good. One note is that on my PC (google chrome) the images for the latest tutorials and reviews on the right hand side are being squared off.
Same for me (Google Chrome)
Same here , image's look squashed 🙁
Ditto, Tutorial images are squashed. Using Chrome. What happened to Rev? I'm still trying to catch up to modern times (I'm around mid 2013). I know he had the chops to be here. Not enough time? To bad, he was one of my faves.
He doesn't have much hobby time at the moment, but hopefully he'll be back with some brilliant models at some point.
Excellent! Happy to hear that, he's one of my faves! Actually, it's hard to say with all the talent that gets brought to us! Thanks for the reply.

I like the new layout too. Very tidy. The images for "latest tutorials" and "latest reviews" are distorted. It looks like the first image is being taken from the article, and squished into a square. You probably need to make square thumbnails for each of these top images. It looks exactly the same on Chrome, Firefox and Safari on a Mac OS 10.9.5.
Trippy! I like it!
Hey there, I noticed the squashed images, too. Can't find a wait to change it yet, but it's on my list. Cheers 🙂
Hey Stahly, what widget do you use for related posts? nRelate is going under at the end of the year and I'm going to have to make a change.
Great work on the redesign. Looks super clean!
Just so you guys are aware, when I put Chrome to one side of the screen using Windows Key+Right or +Left, it doesn't quite resize well enough and parts are chopped off.
I can email a screenshot if required?
Thanks for the advice, we'll look into it. No screenshot needed.
Very happy for the channel and for the new design too!!
Looks really good , always going to get teething troubles when doing stuff like this 🙂
Also, I noticed that the "Previous" and "Next" item/blog is missing from the bottom of the article. It was nice to be able to just keep hitting the next one after reading. Is that gone for good?
Love the new look. Reading is easy and images are large and crisp on the articles, which is pretty important to me when browsing a modeling blog. So, thank you for this! Also, a great idea to get the channel going, signed up straight away.
I would like to second all the comments about the squashed images. But I'm sure that's a minor detail that can be ironed out easily.
Best of luck with the new design, new models, paints and the new year in general, and have a nice Christmas holiday folks!
I like it, easier on the eyes. I'll be reverting to a simpler scheme myself soon with more neutral space. I'll have to refer to this for some ideas for sure 😀
So I've caught up to 2014, just in time for 2015! So the "Previous" and "Next" function aren't a concern for me. Thanks for listening to my observation. To all the Tale of Painters, have a happy holiday season and a joyous New Year! I can't wait to see what you have in mind for 2015!
