Entry for June’s Monthly Drawing challenge: Flow

Didn’t get anywhere with my GSoC code today, so decided to start do some painting and doing the drawing challenge. Had some fun 🙂

Made the sketch in 8bit, and also did the flats in 8bit. Then went to 16bit int with linear space to do the mixing. Finally, overlaid the image with a slight pattern, set to overlay, and then converted to 8bit, to prevent banding artefacts. Ended up pretty well 🙂

Little update

So, I did two important things recently.

First, I posted my 101 sketches I made with Krita since I started working on it. I made a google+ album out of it, because I didn’t think this server could hanle 101 sketches easily.

Secondly, I formally open sourced my little SVG comic reader with GPL 3.0 (which I think is sensible for a web-application.) You can find it on github here: https://github.com/therahedwig/SVG-comic-reader

I actually made it 2.5 years ago, but I never formally open sourced it, more forgot about it, actually. When at the Krita sprint, Boudewijn remarked he really disliked  the way how webcomics present themselves, I remembered it again and show it to him and Timothée Giet. Timothée, as a comics creator was interested in using it, and I finally took the step to open source it.

It has quite a few features, so check out the readme at github.

Some work done with the new assistants in Krita 2.9

So, a while back I added new assistants to Krita.

The demonstration for how to use them is here:

And here’s some images I did with them:

Great work! i’ve tested them and they work great. 😀

Isadora

A full-body test of one of the test characters I use in my drawing tutorials.

I thought it be nice if she has a light dress over most of her armour, and then as she moves the dress gets caught in the wind, and the armour underneath becomes visible.

the idea is cool, very romantic imo. but useful? hmm i doubt it. anyway is a painting so we can do wathever we want . But if the image is for a game with real time animations, then think twice and give her a useful clothes.
