Note, that only the coloring is done in Krita, the lines are not done by me.

Nice color try (although too bad the art-line is not yours).

I must say I don't agree with your comment on Deviantart, Gimp, although optimized for image editing, is a very powerful painting software (and much more if you use the patched Gimp-painter, with a good set of brush presets).
Such color shading could obviously be done with it !

(But I can't disagree if you say you didn't find out how to do in Gimp and it can be more simple in Krita if you're not used to Gimp… ;) )

Well, until the shading it was mostly like GIMP (only flat colors). But how fast and easy I got the shading done with my custom brush was simply amazing. The shading was done in about 10 minutes while the flat colors did took some hours. In the pictures I made with GIMP I needed about the double or even longer to make the shading nice. ( 1 2 3, 3 took me fckn long because it was an pure painting and no drawing). The main problem is the stronly restricted brush dynamics of GIMP, you couldn't create the brush I created myself for the shading.

Thank you for explaining more what makes Krita better for you on this,
now I understand better.
I see you've already used Gimp for color works (by the way good work!), so I'm sure you've tried hard to get such result and didn't reach to get it fast.

I agree default presets in Gimp 2.6 are very bad to draw, there's restricted tablet dynamics support, and it can be hard to make some good presets for painting. This is where the preset packs like the "Gimp paint studio" or the one made by David Revoy are useful!
And if you add the Mix-brush and smoothed ink tools from patched Gimp-painter, you have then a very powerful painting software.
(Also in Gimp 2.7/upcoming 2.8 the tablet dynamics system is rewritten and is now comparable to the one in Krita).

So I keep thinking that those shading could have been done in few strokes with good presets of brush or airbrush, in a well "customized" Gimp.

I love my Gimp, and haven't tried GimpPaint, but as it stands, not being able to quickly and easily adjust brush size on the fly (a la Krita's hold-shift and drag) drives me batty. I can't complain though... it's currently much better as a photo editor than Krita, which is what it tries to be. No real need for the two to compete (or Peter Siking wouldn't be helping us! :( ).

You're right Kubuntiac there's absolutely no need to compete!
All the most as each software has specific goals.
