Chirraco drawn in Krita

Tue Mar 23, 2010 12:31 pm
An experimental image I did that lead to the discovery of bug 231884 in Krita, https://bugs.kde.org/231884.

I was trying to draw a Chirraco ( http://pentalis.deviantart.com/art/Chir ... e-26825993 ) , my goal was to finish an entire piece with several layers just like I work in The GIMP, as well as achieving texture, without yielding to the endless crashes I experienced. The cause of most crashes was found to be the nasty bug 231884, so after I filed the bug report I could finish the image in relative peace (I still had to restart Krita once in a while due to it becoming slow).

Crafting details aside, here it is, sumi-e brush right and left, making extensive use of shear, scale and size, as well as some spray brush underneath, and eventually pixel brush with a soft brush for the bad shading.

This is the image in full resolution, as you may notice due to the crisp lines. I made it small to avoid crashes :)

I love LukasT's brushes, I'd uninstall The GIMP if Krita were stable, the interface here is much better, EXCEPT for those sudden layer switches on which I'm going to fill a bug report again. Also the brushes are superb.

A softer brush is needed to achieve a coloring effect like the original drawing (watercolor pencils with water... though the sheet was too thin and it wrinkled), I love pastels and watercolors and that's the only kind of brush I'd need to see in Krita to completely fall in love of it.

Thanks all Krita team for their hard work, this is a most promising piece of software which motivated me to do things in computers I had never done before (e.g.: studying enough C++ to read someone else's code in a complicated project and finally understanding it; running a KDE4 application with a KDE3 installation, compiling constantly, using debuggers... etc).


Edit:
1.- I release the image into the public domain.
2.- You can obtain the original file from this URL --> http://pentalis.org/chirraco%20krita.kra
3.- I don't relinquish copyright over the concept of Chirracos, but everyone is free to use them under a C.C. attribution license, GPL, BSD or other licenses for software.

The image appears to be very dark. Especially in the green area it's hard to see the details.

Lately I've tended to make very dark images. This is supposed to be a dimly illuminated night. Although I'm not sure just how dark the image looks in someone else's monitors, but if the trees beneath the front trees look like ghostly dark images, that's intentional, I tried to make details barely noticeable.
But I think I went overboard with the darkness compared to how the rest of the image looks, hehe.
