Estas semanas han sido emocionantes con la campaña de kickstarter acercándose más y más al objetivo. Al momento de escribir este artículo estamos pasando 13k. Y con la nueva oleada de usuarios, atraídos por la gran labor de colaboradores y entusiastas en la difusión de la misma, hemos estado muy ocupados trayendo nuevas versiones de prueba y desarrollando nuevas funcionalidades.

Hola. Fue en 2012 que comencé a usar Krita para pintar. En ese entonces usaba la versión 2.5 en Windows, aunque por momentos se cerraba, era la primera aplicación de pintura digital donde realmente me sentí cómodo. Tanto me gustó que hoy día es casi la única aplicación de pintura que uso.
Hi. It was 2012 when I began using Krita painting app for painting. Back then I…
I had to rest a lot this month, It seems when I use a tablet I use a repetitive unnatural movemtent to draw (Short inwards wrist movements). Over the hundreds of drawings that began causing a tendon wear out. Before it develops any further (even to a tendinitis) I rested. Between rests I tried several ways of working but I kept going back to the short movements. In the end the only thing that seems to be working is tilting the tablet and draw more in paper.
Here is the sketchdump of all drawings made with the tablet. I focused on finding my creativity and learning a bit of technical stuff. The drawings offer little technique variety, they are low on composition values and overall few men were amongst the drawing subjects. Overall this month was not very productive.
Some are referenced from other artists artwork, a lot are build from reference, and only few are completely invented.Sketch Dump: March 2014 I had to rest a lot this month, It seems when I use a tablet I use a repetitive unnatural movemtent to draw (Short inwards wrist movements).
Going trough a perspective course at Crimsom Daggers I decided not only to make the exercises but to get them to a certain level of presentation. (I keep the sepia like scheme as I find out I can work for larger periods of time with it).
Using Krita assistants tools not only allows for faster work but also cleaner and more organized look. For diagonals outside the grid I switched to the line…
Krita assistans tool is quite powerful for helping you in making technical drawings, they look so simple and yet with a bit of planning you can setup almost all of your perspective needs. Here below a video of me doing some work. Its in real time so you can see how and when I used the assistants.
I’m still not a power user of this…
Most of the february sketches are here. In march I need to do more:
- “We need more men”
- More stock variety
- Coloring practice
- And a lot more Finished pieces.
Some of the below sketches are referenced and some others are not. It’s quite easy to spot them as most of the characters from stock used on the reference drawings are very repetitive.
Special thanks to all deviantart stock used which mostly are: tasastock, imperialstarletstock, ravenofthenight, 13-melissa-salvatore, mostlyguystock and skydancer-stockSketch dump February 2014 Most of the february sketches are here. In march I need to do more: “We need more men”
Krita 2.8 is close to be released and to join the celebrations I updated the shortcuts sheet to reflect the new additions. Quite a lot of changes happened from 2.7 and in the shortcuts department the new defaults include:
- [ R ] Pick layer under cursor. Press and hold ‘R’ and click on the canvas. The current layer will change to the layer that contains the clicked pixel. neat!
- [ W ]Wrap around…

I’m not so good at painting yet. This is a warmup paint. I skipped the render phase.
I had the intention of making little sword martial artists for a while, but no ideas would come up.… http://wp.me/s1tQzE-1219
After a bit of “training” I’ve been able to recall almost all y dreams, and with some effort and time I can translate them to detailed narrations. Sadly I cannot share them all at the moment as most of the are Spanish only. This one is very short as I was…
