I'm unfortunately kind of stuck on what my next big painting should be, or if I should forgo painting long enough to make the initial assets for a game I've been planning. In the meantime, I haven't been too idle with art, at least between playing Pokemon Black 2 recently anyway. (Only two badges left to go, thankfully. It's an awesome game so far!)

I'll be much more productive with art once I had my fill of that. Let's get started!



Here, I did a silly little sketch imagining how Freedom Planet could be controlled on a mobile device. GalaxyTrail is avoiding Mobile for good reason, but I love thought experiments nonetheless.



I also drew a vocaloid besides Hatsune Miku for once! Megurine Luka in one of her alt outfits on Project Diva, what a graceful lady. I love watching her dance.



I'm also taking a crack at sprite art again! My little Shantae engine may get a Slime Form for Shantae as well. It shouldn't need a lot of frames.



Yes, I do messy sketches too sometimes! I really don't know what I was doing here. Kinda started with the idea of drawing Blaze, then an anthro, and something happened. :XD: SOMEBODY HELP ME EXPLAIN THIS PINK MONSTROSITY.

And that's all I have for now, thanks for viewing! I hope you guys saw something you liked, or would like to see more of in my gallery.

Requests and Art Trades

"Do you take requests?"

Rarely, because of how much time my finished works take, and most characters on deviantART are uninteresting. If your character is very unique, I might sketch them.

"What about art trades?"

Always feel free to ask me if I'm available for an art trade, I love doing those. It could be either full color works or sketches.

"Adoptables?"

When I have characters I can't use, I post them for dA points; points are fun for gifting premium and llama accessories to friends. You get the character, bio, and any artworks made of them at full res. It's always cheap, so stay tuned if you like adoptables!

Yeah, and lots of people I know on Twitter love it. They retweet lots of things about the game, splatfests, and some behind the scenes stuff as well. There was a point in development that the squids were rabbits.

I'd play it myself if I had a WiiU. Arena Shooters are fun, and Splatoon looks to be the most different take on the idea in ages.

So then, I contemplated giving Krita a spin.

Just wanting to check some things.
How does it overall handle, compared to SAI?
And is it just as easy to handle?
(Photoshop is too complicated for me. X_X)

Also while SAI handles superbly in my eyes, it does have some problems.
Such as poor Vector tools, being my number one issue.
And also an absense of a text-tool (since I do that comic), though I can always open up GIMP for that, it tends to acts very glitchy for me though.
So if my primary program would have that tool from the get-go, that would be good.


But yeah, just want to check the waters and maybe get some insight, before I get the trial version.

I would say Krita is a great upgrade from SAI; haven't reinstalled GIMP since switching. (The Windows version of GIMP also gave me problems since using Windows 8. It only ever seems to work properly on its Linux builds.) Krita has more tools than SAI by a long shot, without overwhelming you with mountains of them like Photoshop or GIMP does.

Krita is also free and open source, much like GIMP, so it's for everyone to use. The developers hold yearly kickstarters to fund full-time development, and that's it.

While its UI does have a few nods to Photoshop's layout, it's not half as complicated, in my experience. The quality of the ink brushes are also leagues ahead of the competition, producing results as good as Lazy Nezume. I haven't vectored anything since switching to Krita, because inking manually is that smooth with casual strokes. (As long as you set the smoothing assistant to Basic, or even higher if you need it.) No pen delay necessary; Photoshop may never have line quality that good.

As for vectoring tools, it's different to use, but the learning curve is absolutely worth it. You have dedicated layer types for Vectors, (SAI technically does the same thing as well with its Lineworks Layers.) and the vector tools only work on them. Shapes and lines can be rearranged in real time without much lag, so it's great for changing up vectored text bubbles on the fly.

The Text Tool also works only on those Vector layers, which is actually a good thing, since you can resize your text at any time without pixelation or distortion, than you would if the text was drawn on a paint layer. I played with it last night, and loved how easy it made text to type up, for as weird as the tool works compared to GIMP's highly user-friendly text tools. Adjusting or resizing text is easy, and you have many fonts to work with.

One thing to also note is how well Krita performs. With Hardware/OpenGL Acceleration turned on, the canvas runs as fast as your refresh rate, (A rock-solid 60 FPS for me.) and I love Krita for that, because my strokes are more accurate when there are no hiccups or delays in the canvas refreshing itself. GIMP or SAI do not offer that performance whatsoever, since their canvases operate in Software Mode only. Canvas rotation from SAI is here too, and it's extremely fast for me.

In short, Krita's fast, responsive, boasts more tools than SAI, and costs nothing to use. While there are bugs now and then, Krita is frequently updated enough that many bugs are addressed in a timely manner. All the worst ones from 2.9's first release are gone now.

Welp, I tried it.
But I am not used to the new interfact yet.

If you could give me a rundown of all the useful features, that'd be great.
Especially, rotating, transforming and size changing I couldnt figure out yet.
As well as the different layer types.

It takes a little adjusting to. I needed a couple of weeks to feel fully aware of where everything was on the interface. I'll go over some of the things I didn't realize on my own until much later.

Krita has two tools for moving and and transforming things. Move Layer is more accurate, while taking longer to refresh, (It's extremely slow, I only use it for budging something three pixels into a better position.) and the Free Transform tool drops accuracy for real-time resizing, rotating, and skewing. It's fast and great for making quick adjustments to large selections or layers. Dragging the selection from the outside rotates it, while dragging the tick boxes along the boundaries can either resize or skew it.

Any setting you would want to adjust with any tool can be found in the Tool Options dialogue; this menu changes depending on what tool you have selected. You can even lock the proportions while doing a free transform, which is helpful for simply shrinking something, instead of stretching it. There are lots of options you might like playing with to get a general feel for each tool.

Another thing to note is that your smudging and cloning brushes are simply another set of brushes in the Brushes menu, rather than a dedicated tool in the toolbox. This is done since there are multiple smudging brushes. If something feels missing from the toolbox, it's probably placed somewhere else; it may help to toy with some of the brushes that interest you, and see which ones are useful for your art.

I also feel the need to point out which brushes to use for inking, because it took me a while to figure out. Ink_circle_05, Ink_circle_10, and Ink_circle_25, are your best bets for cleanly drawing smooth ink lines in real time, (No delay needed.) along with the Smoothing Assistant turned to "Basic Smoothing" in the Tool Option. Ink_gpens aren't too clean for that; they're better for other things in my experience.

Smudge_soft is the closest to a typical smudge tool as well. It has some variance in its strokes, which you might be able to remove in the brush's advanced settings. However, I keep it in my case since it gives what your smudging a little texture. Krita's smudge brushes in general are a step up from GIMP or Photoshop's smudge tools, and aren't as messy looking.

Unlike GIMP, the Erase effect can be applied to virtually any brush, (I seem to recall GIMP having dedicated eraser brushes.) which is surprisingly helpful in a lot of cases. You can change to Erase mode at will with a button above the canvas, or by pressing the E key. Erasing with the air brush is nice for controlling the distribution of light effects for me.

The Select Tool may or may not give you trouble right away. Whenever I'm finished with using a selection, I de-select it instead of clicking outside of it to make it go away. Sometimes I end up making a one or two pixel wide selection when clearing it the old fashioned way. By de-selecting it, you're guaranteeing you didn't make a new microscopic selection in place of the last one. Ctlr+Shift+A is handy if you don't like clicking dialog menus infrequently.

Krita comes with a lot of measurement tools I never saw the likes of in GIMP. Its gridded perspective tool is especially handy for structuring rooms and doors for me. The person who coded it was originally working in architecture, and he wanted Krita have tools that are useful for buildings or man-made structures. It's a unique tool no other art program has, to my knowledge.

One last thing. Mirror mode allows you to flip your canvas in real time without modifying it, and it's very useful for checking if your subject's anatomy makes sense from either direction. Rotating the canvas is also very fast, I use it to make strokes that would be harder to do at certain angles. You can set your own keyboard and mouse shortcuts to drag your cursor for rotating the canvas, while holding a key, which gives you more angles to work with than keyboard shortcuts on their own.
