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.

Thanks to Dave and hoping you like it!

Welcome to the Krita Webshop Blog!

Hi to all!

Krita is a digital painting and illustration open-source program based on KDE Platform and Calligra Suite libraries. It was released for the first time as a part of KOffice on June 21, 2005.

Now, we are improving our web shop and offering more merchandise, the money will be used for the livelihood of Krita and its growth.

The question is, why are we creating a blog? The images used in Krita’s merchandise are created by our users. Krita’s design emphasizes creating artwork, for this reason we will show you in this blog how the artists create the image, what brushes did they use to do the image… We will bring you closer to the artists and show you all the possibilities that Krita has for you!
