ArtRage 4 is out, and I decided to try the watercolor brushes:

Painter only half made sense until I tried the art pen.

These last 2 were made with painter? They totally give off that traditional feel. Looks great.

Thanks. I'm finally getting comfortable with Painter now I have an Art Pen. Between rotation and tilt, it's pretty easy to draw "traditionally" with some of the natural media tools.

Not only is your talent enviable but so is your wit. My son and I took a tour through your blog, we especially enjoyed the comments on the mouse-overs. I love your work. Keep up the good work.

Dammit, your blog is blocked at work!

Not that I can't view it at home, mind you, I was just saying it because it totally horked me off.

Thank you! It's likely that you and your son are the only visitors who have ever noticed the mouse-overs. Your enviable qualities qualities must include perception and a knack for mellifluous compliments.

I wonder why... I don't think there's anything NSFW enough to get on a blacklist. Perhaps your workplace expects higher standards from amateur art? If so, I'd be interested in a copy of their filtering software.

No, it's more of a "no-fun" policy here at work. Many servers and web addresses are blocked.

Good thing I was on PK before they blocked everything.

On the other hand, once I get home, I can see your art. I'm going to copy moof's comment: holy shit balls. Nice inks!

Playing with Krita 2.8 and focusing on faces:

Great work, especially "Summer Solstice" and "Sentient Headdress". In general I like how you make the lines look loose but purposeful. Also the citation for that ref.

Yay for krita! If you're on Linux, check out the 2.9-beta branch on git, there are new good things arriving (also a OSX proof-of-concept). To build it, this is a rather good walkthrough for cats. Cats are big fans of code and art, ask any one of them sitting on a keyboard.

Oh, and since you are checking out FOSS, take a new look at the git for mypaint. In the last week, the GTK+ >=v3.0 and UC-Tablets (basically non-wacoms, Huion, Monoprice, Uc-logic, etc) issue as been finally solved. I mention this since we talked about a workaround using an older version a long time ago in some thread.

I'll throw a second for mypaint. I love that program, and even helped on the dev a bit. If you've ever closed or created a new image after sketching and clicked the "save as scrap" button, I was responsible for that

I really like the partially finished feel with some crisp lines in addition to the ultra loose stuff. Very nice!

Krita is cool. I pledged to the 2.9 kickstarter this year. I like the direction the dev team has taken it, although I personally don't use it much because the brush engine doesn't gel with the way I like to draw. I check in every six months or so to see what's improved, and each time I'm pleasantly surprised. The recent transformation features are incredible.

Krita brush-testing doodles from a few nights ago:

I fired up ArchBang in a VM and installed Mypaint just to try out your feature.

Scraps are brilliant, and the water brushes are very nice (right up there with ArtRage). I also liked the infinite canvas and picking OpenRaster as the native file format. But... there are no selections or transformations. AT ALL.

Mypaint doodles from yesterday:


At one point I realized that the sketch was skewed (the resolution of the VM running mypaint was narrower than my cintiq). I had to export the image into Krita to resize it!
