Playing with the settings of Krita brushes. Got a nice textured effect, so decided to do a drawing with it. Fire is a favourite subject of mine.
I recorded the progress of this one for a perspective tutorial. But… I forgot the pauze hotkey for the screen recording program. So I ended up drawing 2ish hours non stop. My arms hurt now.
Not very clean, but I am relatively happy with it.
Krita doodle for the week.
first wanted to make a background, then had a composition problem: Dragon inserted to solve.
Some practice inspired half by a timelapse of a portrait and half by my annoyance I haven’t done expressions and flowers other than lilies much.
Bathing in sunlight.
I hadn’t painted properly in a while, so I decided to put down an image I had been having in my head, though I’m not sure if the eighties hair was really part of it, I’m not upset with it there either.
Drew this in 16bit srgb first before converting it to my monitor’s profile.
Swamp Concept Art 01
Some concept-art made with Krita.
Just deciding on basic colour palette.
Test with inking and crosshatching.
Guy on the left was done in Fineliners(07 tp 005), Dragon on the right was done with really cheap nibs. I guess I’ve gotten better with Lineart in general.
I found out there were a whole lot of pictures I never uploaded or anything, so I decided to photograph them and upload them.
Comic style tests
This is a test of comic styles in Krita.
The middle one being a watercoloury style(probably needs better colour picking to be really useful)
The last being traditional ink-then-colour, softshading style, and the first being a variation where I painted the subject first, and then added the lines. Painting is a little more comfortable for me regarding details like hair and folds(which are nice to sculpt this way), so it’s a little more natural to me to try this manner.
All of them have their own charm really.
Sat down and really tried drawing in Krita. I had to install cinnamon onto ubuntu because otherwise it would be too slow. Ubuntu kinda fights too much with my videocard. :/
Anyhow, I still prefer MyPaint, mostly because the UI is much easier to grasp. I hope future versions of Krita will be more customisable and quicker.
