Journey to the West by TysonTan
Journey to the West
Journey to the West en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_… , gender-swapped version. ;b
For those who don't know, Journey to the West was a 16th century Chinese classic novel about a monk and his 4 (anthro) apprentices travelling to India to learn from the original Buddhism texts.

From left to right:
* Sun Wukong the monkey king (I guess you probably know this one).
* Zhu Bajie the pig, a former heavenly marshal.
* Bailong the dragon prince disguised as a horse.
* Xuanzang the Buddhist monk (historically existed, a famous figure).
* Sha Wujing (no associated animal but I used shark here), a former heavenly general.

They were originally dudes, here I had fun drawing them as girls. XD

Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni by TysonTan
Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni
Inspired by the 2008 Beijing Olympic mascots. Wiki: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuwa

This picture has been revised over the years.
Version 1 (2007) >> Version 2 (2010-2011) >> Version 3 (2015 current)
Old versions: tysontan.tumblr.com/post/12226…

Characters (from left to right):
Beibei: The blue one, a fish
Jingjing: The black one , a panda
Huanhuan: The red one, the Olympic Flame
Yingying: The yellow one, a Tibetan antelope
Nini: The green one, a swallow

When you put their names together, it reads "Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni" -- which means "Welcome to Beijing".

Who do you like best?

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:
