Obviously, I'm pretty happy about this as a Krita user. 2.8 versions already had a lot of tools, so Krita is starting to feel a lot more like a full-fledged painting program, as of 2.9's release. I can posterize sprites, lock docks in place, access a lot more filters, use tabs so I can work on multiple drawings in one instance, and much more! The release notes detail a lot of exciting additions to the program, it's almost overwhelming to review.

And of course, as with all initial releases, this one has a few kinks of its own. G'Mic Filters are not 100% on Windows builds, and the on-canvas notifications are causing performance issues for me. (One of the developers said he'd address the latter in the next build, so I'm looking forward to that.) Otherwise this is a very solid, stable initial build, especially with the memory leak problems from 2.8.0 still fresh in my mind.

I'll be using 2.8.3 while I wait for a couple of issues to be ironed, although it felt great getting to play around with all the new features! I can't wait to use them full-time in the next stable version.
  • Mood: Delighted
  • Listening to: Hatsune Miku - Feel Alive
  • Reading: Drawing On the Right Side of the Brain
  • Playing: Super Princess Peach (Because it's fun!)


Mr-Glaceon's Profile Picture

Hello! I'm Mister Glaceon. I've drawn cartoon characters on and off for as long as I can remember. Picking it back up four years ago on paper, I realized how much I enjoyed it.

After a year of learning my way around GIMP, drawing with a mouse in vectors, I knew I was serious about illustrating. That's when I got a Wacom tablet, and Krita, an open-source painting app, to take things to the next level.

Requests and Art Trades

"Do you take requests?"

Very rarely, because of how much time my finished works take, and most OCs on deviantART are terrifyingly generic. If your character makes me squee until my heart is orbiting Saturn, I'll consider a base-colored sketch of them.

"What about art trades?"

Currently a little too backed up to dedicate myself to a finished, colored piece in exchange. Always feel free to ask me if I'm available for an art trade, I love doing those.


While my anatomy has improved in recent years, it's not yet at the point I feel right charging money for my art. It would not be cheap (Well above the $35 range.) when I can offer anyway, because my bigger pieces with painted details typically take three weeks to finish.


When I have characters I can't use for anything, I usually post them for dA points. Points are fun for gifting premium and llama accessories to friends, so that's why I do it. You get the character, bio, and any artworks made of them at full res. It's always cheap too, so keep an eye open if you like adoptables!

Hi, I wonder if this is good enough for your Shantae fan group…
Mr-Glaceon Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd vote it into the group if you submit it. We enjoy how differently fans draw Shantae and friends.

You submitted it right, don't worry! It's easy to submit to groups, and it's good for exposing your art as well. I'm sure :iconwayforwardfanbase: and :iconshantaeclub: would love it in their galleries as well.
