Hi to all!
We have the pleasure to show you our new mug with the collaboration of David Revoy.
We have made to him some questions for you!
Q-A part from painting in Krita, do you contribute into some open-sources project ?
A-Yes, I contribute also to Gimp, Mypaint, Wikipedia and test Linux distributions. I also worked on two open-movie productions : Sintel ( art-direction ) and Tears of Steel ( concept-art , storyboard ) , and released two open workshop DVD’s : Chaos&Evolutions and Blend&Paint.
Q-Do you work in the ambit of design, illustration…?
A- Yes, I’m a freelance illustrator since 2002 living in the south of France. I work remotely from my home studio for various pubishers and studios.
Q- What brushes did you use to do that image?
A- I used the ‘particle brush’ engine , with various settings changed on the fly. It was just a test, a speed-painting to test this particular and very ‘digital’ looking brush.
Q- How did you discover Krita?
A- I discovered Krita back in 2006 or 2007 while following generalist news on a CG forum. It was talking mainly about the CMYK support. I first tested it on old Ubuntu package around 2008. Then I joined the team as a tester on 2010 after my work on the art-direction of the open-movie Sintel.
Q- What is your favourite feature of Krita?
A- Too much to list them all : Dulling smudge, Textured stroke, a lot of shortcut available, incremental saving, transformation tool, stabilisation, PSD support, CMYK … But above all, I like the general performance and smoothness of the brush; a lot of work of optimisation was made about it thanks to the dedicated work of the developpers Lukas Tvrdy and Dmitry Kazakov.
