This is issue #144 of the Dogwaffler of the Moment, the newsletter about Project Dogwaffle.

Hohoho Howler!

Hello again,

did you notice?
144, that's the number of this newsletter.
144, that's 12x12
12 is the month of December.
Very special newsletter indeed.

See most of our past our newsletter online:
We're still celebrating the 20-year mark of Project Dogwaffle.

- PD Howler and Artist 11 on sale through the holidays and year end!

Santa brings you another special promo: 42% off on PD Howler 11 or PD Artist 11.
Learn more at thebest3d.com:

or order from the developer directly at Squirreldome:

- Try it free
We have a new demo version at

- New Howler 11.2b
We have made a few more changes and updates, fixed a bug that in some cases caused a buffer overrun upon initial painting at first brush stroke. If you ordered from our BMTmicro store, use  your existing download links. They may still be valid.

- Upgrade from earlier version v10?
Remember to use your discount coupon if you're already using v10. That will get you a slightly better discount (50% off). For all other prior versions just use the default dscount that's applied automatcally. Thanks and welcome back!

- A new DOTM: Bluffwalker - Real World Terrains in Howler

Here's a retired forester who's turned into a Dogwaffler of the Moment, using PD Howler to render beautiful landscapes based on elevation maps of real(!) world data. You might recognize Crater Lake, and other famous or intricate areas of this planet. USGS elevation data is quick and easy to obtain from http://terrain.party - He then also adds a very special touch by way of styling and art filters, sometimes in Howler, or also combining with other apps such as Photoshop and apps on iPad. Very inspiring!
Learn more about Bluffwalker here:
The images shown are subsets, cropped from the full mages. Be sure to follow the link shown there to visit his Album named Digital Landscapes on Flicker to see the full mages and newer ones added over time.

As we reflect on the year and realize it's turning into 2018 so quickly, we'll use this opportunity to wish you a lot of happiness, with Dogwaffle of course, but also in general, good health and company, family and friends!

Thanks again for using Project Dogwaffle for your creative art: PD Howler, PD Artist or PD Particles! Keep painting and dreaming!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah or whatever you're celebrating this holiday season, and we hope Dogwaffle can be part of your celebrations, or perhaps you'll make it a gift to someone special in your life?

I think I looked their site 2 days ago, but their list is blocked on newsletter 142. That seemed weird for the season but  :shrug:

Thank you Mary for the news  :mwah:

You are welcome, thanks for posting the others. I just took a peek and sure enough the last one listed is #142 and it is accessible I just got this newsletter in email today, so maybe he has not added it there yet
