Can you believe it? Krita 3.0 is almost here, and with goodies! Even with 3.0 Alpha coming out very soon, make sure to update Krita itself, as the latest greatest version is now 2.9.10, which offers quite a bit already, like optimizations for AMD systems; no more lagging for anyone now! Anyways, let’s take a look at a certain new features we will see in 3.0; animation!
You know, I was starting to write a guide to using Krita, but as I started to outline the guide, I realized it would be one large guide. There is no way I could create a single article to cover all of the cool things about Krita. Instead, I’m going to record a series of tutorials, and throw them up on the 3DEsprit Youtube page.
If you’re like me, you may prefer a written tutorial instead, and with that, I plan to also create a written version of each tutorial. So, regardless if you prefer a video, or written tutorial, you will have the option of both. Before anyone asks, no, I will not create PDF or JPEG tutorials so you can easily distribute them as your own; please go to hell.
The more I use it, the more I love Krita. This was the exact feeling I had when I first started using it, but it wasn’t until recently that I finally found some extra time to work with it a bit more. Of course, if you’ve used Krita before, you know it easy to get lost in it’s settings, and can find a setting for just about anything. At the same time, I wondered if there was a way to easily find a complimentary color for any color I picked. The short answer is, “Yes, of course!”. Let’s see how.
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.
