I've been trying it for the past two days, and I'm seriously loving Krita to pieces! The whole setup is a little different from what I'm used to in GIMP, but transitioning to this art program has been more than worth it for me. Here are a few of the advantages it's offering me already, as a new user, over GIMP.

· Live Rotating Canvas. A feature I've only seen in MyPaint, SketchBook, and PaintTool SAI; not very common.

· Selection by Brush Tool. I can simply brush what I want to select! Only saw it before in SAI.

· A Dock specifically for reference images. No more window-focus confusion with Image Viewer instances above the canvas.

· Advanced, faster and cleaner brush tools, with more options than I know what to use! Definitely need this for digital painting.

Here's what my workspace looks like right now, for the curious.

And my first warm up drawing in Krita! (Didn't bother with loads of shading for that reason.) This is a Chibi OC you guys might be seeing more of later on. :la:

If any of you are wanting an alternative, and running Linux, or don't mind trying out the Windows' builds, definitely give it a try. SAI is a waste of time to get running through WINE, when Krita does everything it can and then some natively without any dirty workarounds.

gracias for the watch! :heart: 

I had a brief dream that you visited my place & we played indecipherable video games awhile. Then you leaped onto the ceiling.

Let's make this happen. :iconrockoutplz:

Unfeasible events notwithstanding, it was quite the trippy dream. XD
Mr-Glaceon Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow. X'D That is quite the trippy dream, haha. I'd totally do the ceiling thing if I could jump that high, so that's pretty in-character for me.

I was dreaming about playing games last night too, but with my cousins. O: It was Dark Souls II, and I had cut open an enemy revealing a baby dinosaur. That's when I realized that wouldn't happen in the game, and woke up. XD
Depending on how far you've played/watched into Dark Souls II, perhaps a baby dinosaur will emerge from the slain carapace of a mighty foe. :giggle: I mean, sure, nothing like that transpired in Demon's Souls or Dark Souls I, but why not embrace the idiosyncrasy? :happybounce:

And so, you also experience those moments eh? The "wait - this wouldn't be occurring in reality" moments that startle ya out of a dream, straight into wakefulness (or, at least, consciousness). I suppose it depends on one's capacity for cognitive dissonance - or preference thereunto. :psychotic:

:iconglaceonplz: <- Have a Glaceon-ic day~ :wave:
Mr-Glaceon Apr 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If only I had room for suspicion. XD I've already watched my older cousin go through the game, and there are no dinosaurs. ;w; Only big, scary dragons, haha.

The awareness of being inside a dream is also a potential trigger for lucid dreaming. If you can manage to tell yourself it's a dream, without waking up or losing control, you have full range to do whatever you want. That's how people had fun before virtual reality. XD *bricked*
