Posting Artwork

Sat Oct 17, 2009 1:40 pm
Some things to keep in mind when posting in the gallery:

Any kind of artwork done with Krita is welcome, finished and WIPs (work in progress) alike.

We don't have a dedicated hosting for upload images, so we have to rely on external hosting services, the one I have experience with and I can recommend is ImageShack but there are many others you can use. Just try to avoid those that might remove your image after a while.

Use [img] tags! Image size limit is 720px wide (no height limit), post as big as you can under those limits. Don't use a small thumbnail for your image.
You can add an extra link for show your work in its higher-res glory if you want to.

If your artwork uses external material, like photographs made by other people, make sure that you have the proper authority to use them, and remember to give credit!

If you make your artwork available in Krita's native format (the '.kra' file), please state a license for your work. We'd very much like this to be an open license, that is: a license that permits other people to not only look at the file, but also to play around with it (while still giving you credit). For example the GNU General Public License or some of the Creative Commons licenses if they are open enough. I normally use CC-by-sa myself.

That's all, I hope I covered everything :)

Can we use your work to promote Krita?
If you're *not* using a liberal license as above (or something like Artistic license 2.0 which is GPL compatible), it would be great if you could state whether you give permission for the image to be used for promoting Krita / on krita2d.org's new gallery (being built as I speak).

What *really* helps Team Krita
It would also be incredibly valuable if you're doing any artwork to share a screen recording of your process as you paint. These are useful for the devs to see what features people *really* use, what things aren't clear to people in the gui and also to help promote Krita itself if you give us permission with something like a Creative Commons license.

A note on Creative Commons "Share Alike" Licenses
If you do use a CC license, please avoid any share alike license. Our videos are *always* CC licensed, but it creates a problem when there are two contributions with different CC-SA licenses. It's legally impossible to use both! (Because CC-SA says you have to use the same license only on derivative works, which is fine for 1 contributions license, but conflicts when there is >1).


Krita - All the cool kids are painting with it!

good proposal, but how to use krita itself (or an other KDE graphic appli if better with it) to improve such pictures (selections modes, fast diagonal selection with short cuts, contour selection and how to make it easy and add a background color or an other background picture with a very light grey or white filter on it, shrink size of picture and/or reduce resolution for forum needs) to make them really attractive if you are not already a krita expert yourself :< ;) ?

I have a suggestion.

There has been too much artwork posted here lately. Most users create topics for a single drawing (not the highest quality at times).

So, the suggestion is: why not create a channel (group) on deviantart and post any amount of work there? Krita forum is not a gallery, it is a forum - for discussion, problem solving, sharing ideas and asking questions - about software.

Thank you.

Not everyone has or wants to have a deviantart though.

I mean, this, REALLY? It actually corrupts the value of Krita in creating artwork. Or looks like trolling.

I'm sorry, but are you proposing people need to pass an exam to post here? It's not a showcase but the finished artworks forum.

I mean, I can understand that you'd want to ask to merge threads, but you're being a little rude here. There's a difference between critiqueing someone, and claiming their work is trolling. Did you think perfect artists are born?

The Krita gallery forum is a gallery. It is meant for sharing artwork. And please stop being discouraging: I have always wanted the gallery forum to be open to artists of any level of experience. If an image doesn't appeal to you, skip it silently.

Pretty clear.
I now withdraw.

ImageShack is now one of the aforementioned services... I know because I just spent a good while restoring my images elsewhere after finding out their links were broken. Seems that a 30 day trial was imposed without warning and it's no longer a free site. Might be worth updating the first post... ;)

From my experience imgur doesn't remove things even uploaded w/out account.

Also suggestion: Since Krita has now animation tools, could we get subcategories in WIP/finished for animations?
