Chromatic Splash by TysonTan Chromatic Splash by TysonTan
New startup splash picture for the next version of Krita! Hopefully we can see it in use in Krita 3.0.1.

This picture caught me up by surprise really. The thumbnail showed something like a cartoony drawing with low saturation colours, and when I opened it: Bam! all of it jumped right in! The dynamics and movement effect; the accuracy of the colors palette; the character and her expression. It's bright, it's dynamic and it's beautiful. Really pays a fair homage to the elements, being water the blue one, and the other seeming to be fiery petals of sakura, maybe.. The technique here is just perfect, with the shadows and bright spots really well mapped and painted (something not easy at all when we're talking about metallic elements, like the hair/helmet and the tail). All in all, this is a real treat :)

Hi! First of all I've admired your work for many years and I adore every single piece you post. This one is no exception!

You have an incredible understanding of layout, highlighting and shading, as well as liquid. All of your works are a joy to look at, because they simply scream energy. There's always something new to enjoy in your pieces.

This character is absolutely adorable, and her face especially is very cute. However, I feel like the overall monotone colours subtract from the piece as a whole, and that she should have some colour variation to her shading. It by no means ruins the work, it's just a small detail I feel could really benefit the piece.
Please do keep up the great work!! I'll be Watching you for more years to come.

We need an app icon with Kiki ! Gimp has Wilber and Krita has a (not so pretty imo) blurry multicolored circle with a brush (even the brush is not great when you look closer). Why not have Kiki's face instead ?
Please add a proposal here forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=…

I see this picture every day, not because i see it online or something... No. It's a part the startscreen of my favorite 2D prog, Krita! Very good artwork, so good that even the devs of krita build it in... Did they asked you to draw it.. Or if they could use it?

I designed Kiki and donated her to Krita foundation. So far, I draw one new splash screen for every each new version of Krita, for free and voluntarily. Krita foundation is free to use all of my Kiki artwork.

He uses Krita, to my knowledge. Not sure what version, though I presume the most recent.

Wow, She is very Cute, The colors are amazing, she looks like she has some serious skill with the Brush. I would ask her to Draw me a picture or Self Portrait. I wonder how that would look coming from her. :D (Big Grin)

I really like the use of colors in this piece. The subtle use of the same colors that are present in her eyes is a nice touch.

Loving the eyes much more too~
