Hey deviantArt friends.
Many thanks for all the comment on episode 22. I learned a lot of interesting things about "fan-service" :-)
I just posted a blog post with all the details about the step I used to produce episode 22 in Krita / GMIC  / Gimp and Inkscape.

:star: :star: :star: Full making-of here:… :star: :star: :star:

I'm new on all this digital painting and I don't get the reason of steps 4 and 5...

GMIC is a plugin that basically helps you colouring by adding a differently coloured background to any distinct area in your lineart. Those aren't the colours you need, of course, so in step 5, you're preparing your colour distribution.

Awesome, the colorize filter was just the tool I was looking for. Thank you!

Ooooh, I had given up on Gmic (B&W Colorize) because the edges started to get really jagged, took too much time fixing minor stuff.  But this smart coloring thing looks really promising, will definitely try it out for next week's page of my comic.

Keep spreading the gospel, dude, I love looking at all these cogs spinning!

I usually use "paint until it looks good" method :)
Whoa, you do it mostly traditional way? Isn't it kinda slow? I'm impressed anyway.

Thank you for this mini-tutorial. I've actually used G'Mic before with good results. If I ever decide to do more digital art then I'll definitely keep this method in mind since I'm not really a fan of drawing digitally. I absolutely love the beautiful style you've achieved here.

Great! I love seeing the whole process :love:
Btw, thank you for all the support material for Krita! I'm moving from PS to Krita and its being way easier due so many helpful stuff you provide. Hope to be able to contribute to the community in any way soon :)

Loved learning about Gmic, looked it up on google and found your awesome tutorial on it. It looks so handy, I'm definitely going to give it a try! Also, because I don't understand, why was step 5 needed and why didn't you skip directly from 4 to 6? :D

Thanks! Ha, true, I need to explain better the step 5. ; and indeed this one can be skipped.
I wanted on the way to split my area to create a "selection map" to easily pick a color and select element by semantic : all hairs ; all background ; all sky or all special effect. It wasn't very useful at the end ; and direclty color flatting is probably what I'll do on the next project.

Haha, thanks for explaining! It's interesting to see though, and to learn about your thought process!
