Tried out a different program for painting this week, Krita which is a free open source painting program designed with comic artists and traditional painters in mind. And it is indeed impressive. Go download it. It handled quite well, although with my enormous comic files, I'll probably have to stick with Photoshop for the end phases. I inked the most recent comic in it and it went really well. It's got a lot of script integration too so I could port my database handling over there pretty easily. Much more to be explored, but it was a really fun thing to do, break out of the old and into the new.
What's happening on Eynhallow. It's not going well. But when is it ever.
I thought I sensed a different approach to this one. At first I thought it was just the mystical feel of the image but reading description I see that it was a bit more distinct perhaps due to program design for comic art. Thanks for the link I think I'll give it a try
Thank you! Krita seems to do a lot better at color blending than Photoshop, so I'll have to reevaluate my soft vs. hard edges, but I'm very excited at the new opportunities presented by this software.
