Kiki the Cyber Squirrel by TysonTan Kiki the Cyber Squirrel by TysonTan
Kiki is the official mascot of Krita krita.org/ .
Her previous version looks like:


After calling her "the mascot of Krita" for quite sometime, I decided to give the girl a proper name, together with a more polished, mascot-ish design. Now she has the Krita's new icon on her chest as well as a color scheme base on it. Her pose is also relevant to digital painting now. Anyone recognize the design of the stylus? :)

This picture is a collaboration with Krita team for their merchandise shop www.zazzle.com/kritashop . Don't know what item the design might become at this point, though. Will you consider support this free and open source project? Thank you very much! :)

Also sorry for not updating anything for more than half an year. I have been studying and doing research for my original project. It is almost there! I also managed to switched to Trisquel GNU/Linux, which is 100% free software operation system (Ubuntu is not completely free as in freedom). It took me some work and some hardware wouldn't work. But I can live without them!

You guys are awesome! Thank you all for the greetings on my birthday and also the mysterious person sent me a gift of 3 months DA subscription! I really appreciate all the support!

Software used:
Trisquel GNU/Linux (Operation System) trisquel.info/
Krita (Drawing and coloring) krita.org/
GIMP (Typography) www.gimp.org/
All software I used are free and open sourced. I appreciate all the efforts from their communities.

Hard to write a Critique about this, because it is so Hnng you could die for. But after surviving this cuteness I indeed found some little things you had problems with, so it seems. The Stylus she has in the hand is a big Stylus no, and so it appears that her index finger is big as well, much bigger then the rest of the fingers. I know it is hard to draw something like that grabbing something so big like a Stylus.

The next thing is her right leg. How it is formed the part who goes back again seems almost so long how her left leg, what of course looks strange.

But i don't have only bad Critique I have also good ones too.

The picture is just adorable as hell, all on her is cute and good looking, even the little problems with the hand and the leg (that is why I would even let this be like this)

The greatest point in your image are the colors, a white squirrel with blue shading, there is the best options to take blue colors, but with pink as secondary color it brings much more life whit it.

And boy I do love the tail and the eyes, with the playing with black in the tail it give a great contrast. And how you did the eyelid is very nice looking. I sure will keep this design in mind.

The last thing is her clothing, they are very simple but that is the right course you chose. And so everybody can see the logo of Krita very clear.

Vision is clear a 4,5 it looks beautiful.

Originality sadly only a 4 because you rework a version of this little fellow, but still is this better then nothing, after all it is unique.

Technique also a 4,5 for the clean look the colors, but a 0,5 minus point for the finger and the leg.

And last the Impact. I know this is a mascot and a great one. Lovely, fits to the company and you can easily remember it. I think you did all right.

Aww, what a cutie, Kiki makes me melt. ;w; I've been trying to switch to Krita over GIMP lately, (Loving it a lot too!) and seeing this adorable little android squirrel on start-up fills me with squees every time.
