While getting myself ready for the new Concept Cookie “I Can Draw Anything” workshop, I felt the need to find something to use for digital line art, since Photoshop never made me happy in that area. When doing some research, I found many people suggested Mischief. During this week’s CoCo livestream, I was introduced to another app called Krita. So in this article, I’m going to talk about these two applications, and what I liked most about each.
Before this week, I was struggling quite a bit with Photoshop, specifically with painting. Most of my knowledge consisted of using filters to create my textures, and when it came to creating them in a traditional manner, the results were sub-par at best. While watching Concept Cookie’s live stream for this week, I asked the question of where to learn how to utilize the brushes when it came to painting in Photoshop. Little did I know that using the basics was the key, and then using specific brushes for the effects you wanted after. Even with that little bit of information, I was not ready to paint just yet, but at least I was given an idea of what to look for in order to progress forward.
