Milla's Garden Podcast
A picture for Milla’s voice actress Aimee who has just joined us on twitter recently. Follow her, Milla fans! Aimee's twitter: twitter.com/AimeeSmithVA

This picture started as a gift to be Aimee’s new twitter avatar, but I eventually pushed myself to make a finished picture out of it, something I haven’t been doing in years! Although I had to redo the color for Aimee’s avatar, which reminds me of the danger of over-funding a kickstarter project XD

Krita Painting App on Steam!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 11, 2014, 7:10 AM
WHAT IS KRITA

:iconkrita-admin:
Krita is the only digital painting tool I'm using. It is a free (as in freedom), open source software. It offers a sophisticated brush system, packs in almost everything that a digital painter needs and is very easy to use.


HELP KRITA ON STEAM

:iconsteam-plz:
Krita is now available for Windows and GNU/Linux on PC, and the develop team is trying to get Greenlight on Steam as well. Please help them (and thus helps everyone): visit Krita on Steam


WHAT DO I LIKE ABOUT KRITA

Krita's page has detailed introduction of what it is capable of. I would like to cover a few things that I really like about Krita here as well:

Brush:

  • Krita's brush system is fast and smooth. It is optimized for graphics tablets with pressure support.
  • Ruler tool assistance when drawing long curves (something comparable to SAI).
  • It doesn't draw jigsaws when zoomed out (my nightmare when using Adobe Photoshop).

Command:

Krita has a friendly, highly customizable user interface. The basic operations when using a brush tool are:

  • Shift + drag = Change brush size
  • Ctrl = temporary color picker
  • Middle button + hover movement = Move canvas
  • Ctrl + Middle button + hover movement up / down = Zoom canvas
  • Shift + Middle button + hover movement around = Rotate canvas

Simply right click and you can access:

  • Color wheel
  • Recently used colors
  • Favorite tool presents

Layer:

  • Supports layer with many mixing method.
  • Supports layer group.
  • Supports layer mask.

Resize:

High quality resize with Lanczos3 filter. It doesn't produce inferior shrinking result like Adobe Photoshop does sometimes.

GPU Acceleration:

  • GPU accelerated fast & high quality canvas rotation and zooming.
  • Realtime mirrored view mode.
  • Color management support.


FREE AS IN FREEDOM

Krita is free (libre) and open source software. Its source codes are publicly available. You can study, modify, and distribute Krita without restriction. You can learn more about Free Software Movement.


THE MASCOT

And yes, I designed Krita's mascot, Kiki the Cyber Squirrel. I've also designed Krita's box art, banner art and projet avatar on Steam. Krita's next major release, Krita 2.8, scheduled on late February, will have my picture as its startup splash as well! I'm very happy to see my work becomes useful to the project!

Some pictures I did for Krita are also on DA:

Thank you for reporting. Technically they did change it quite a lot, so I consider it to be fair use.

Hi, I just wanted to say that your artwork is just amazing and I love the concept work and character designs that you're doing for Freedom Planet 2. Lilac, Sasha and Milla look adorable in your style. I'm looking forward to Freedom Planet 2~

Have you seen what sonic's official Twitter page has to say about mighty no. 9?

TysonTan Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
1. For everybody, it's funny.
2. For Sonic, it's consistent with his character.
3. For Sega, that's not very nice.
4. Don't forget "it's no use" and "bounce pad"
5. I like Mighty No.9.

Still though, how the makers of the game said to the fans "it's better then nothing" during their live stream, got to admit that was a bit insulting was it not?..................Anime fan on PRORP no naf eminA
