Krita 5 is out- Free Photoshop alternative and more...

Post by majid » Mon Jan 17, 2022 7:39 am

It is a while that I use Krita. At first, it was a real nightmare to me as the interface was totally different from what I got used to, but after a while and watching several videos on youtube and experimenting it just wondered how powerful it is. I am preparing a Sketchup+Krita tutorial also.
During the learning process, I did two book illustrations. The first one was semi-digital; I drew the linework by hand then colored the scans. The recent one is a coloring book and I did it mainly because I was intending to learn the linework digitally.
Here are some of my experiences.
Semi-digital:

The RGBA brush let you mimic oil painting and as far as I know, it is unattainable in Photoshop. I crafted some new RGBA myself after watching relevant videos on youtube. Here are one of my drills:

It is very kind of you Fletch! :hat:
As Krita has a set of tools to rectify image distortions, nowadays I usually use it to rectify taken photos and use them as textures. https://docs.krita.org/en/reference_man ... sform.html
(Photoshop also has similar tools but Krita has gathered them under a single toolset)

I may not state a specific date, as it is part of a series of tutorials on Sketcup+Krita+Blender 3D, and I am so busy. Despite its complicated interface, Blender 3D is a fantastic tool for texture mapping and model subdivisions, etc... . Hopefully, the Krita+Sketchup will be the first in the row.
