What is Krita?
Krita is the only digital painting tool I’m using. It is a free (as in freedom), open source software. It offers a sophisticated brush system, packs in almost everything that a digital painter needs and is very easy to use.Help Krita on Steam Greenlight!
Krita is now available for Windows PC, and the develop team is trying to get Greenlight on Steam as well. Please help them (and thus helps everyone)!
» Krita on Steam «What I like about Krita
Krita’s page has detailed introduction of what it is capable of. I would like to cover a few things that I really like about Krita here as well:
- Krita’s brush system is fast and smooth. It is optimized for graphics tablets with pressure support.
- Ruler tool assistance when drawing long curves (something comparable to SAI).
- It doesn’t draw jigsaws when zoomed out (my nightmare when using Adobe Photoshop).
Krita has a friendly, highly customizable user interface. The basic operations when using a brush tool are:
- Shift + drag = Change brush size
- Ctrl = temporary color picker
- Middle button + hover movement = Move canvas
- Ctrl + Middle button + hover movement up / down = Zoom canvas
- Shift + Middle button + hover movement around = Rotate canvas
Simply right click and you can access:
- Color picker
- Recently used colors
- Favorite tool presents
- Supports layer with many mixing method.
- Supports layer group.
- Supports layer mask.
High quality resize with Lanczos3 filter. It doesn’t produce inferior shrinking result like Adobe Photoshop does sometimes.
- GPU accelerated fast & high quality canvas rotation and zooming.
- Realtime mirrored view mode.
- Color management support.Free as in Freedom:
Krita is free (libre) and open source software. Its source codes are publicly available. You can study, modify, and distribute Krita without restriction. You can learn more about Free Software Movement.The Mascot
And yes, I designed Krita’s mascot, Kiki the Cyber Squirrel. I’ve also designed Krita’s box art, banner art and projet avatar on Steam. Krita’s next major release, Krita 2.8, scheduled on late February, will have my picture as its startup splash as well! I’m very happy to see my work becomes useful to the project!
David Revoy has been making tutorials and resources for Krita, available on his website. If you are new to Krita, make sure to visit his place for some useful tips and brushes! Please visit David’s website.
I’m still finding my art being uploaded here on tumblr despite all the ‘do not repost’s in not just the artist comments, but right on my dA profile. Lol, do people even read what my dA profile says?
Relevant once again. Do I really have to go through every single thing I have uploaded to dA and write ‘do not upload’?
I saw others posting their SPRMB stuff, so here.
And here is the awesome fic written to go along with it.
Something I doodled for Christmas and forgot about. Oops.
I miss drawing Crenny
So I was watching the 09 Sherlock Holmes movie while doodling my favorite boys and all I could think of was how great it would be to watch these two losers running around trying to solve crimes in the 1800s, like
"Stanley, I received word earlier of a grisly triple murder with mysterious circumstances."
i was VERY EXCITED about the sprmb so i put together this promo post with all of the art! i hope that’s okay.
❀ read the mini-bang fics here and enjoy lovely art! ❀
