Well not any need for updates if there’s nothing going on 🙂 Ok, ther has been somthing going on. I’m still animating and cartooning for fun. I’m still impressed with open source software and I want to see if they can do the things I want, you see I’m proud to be that type of guy that thinks you don’t need Photoshop or Apple before you start to do your thing. It’s fun to push your limits with open source software.
This update is because I started to paint more again, who hasn’t been impressed with the Disney style backgrounds from the 30’s 40’s 50’s … now I want to see what it takes to replicate this with the MyPaint version of Pencil2D. This is how far I got a Friday evening. Cheers see you soon, or in a few years 😀
This is the final result, good enough for me. Learnt something too.
I got interested in testing Sketchbook Pro with a Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and I must say I liked it a lot. Very nice overall feeling when drawing. The only thing I noticed “again” is that the Samsung gets all the colors a bit off compared to what it looks like on the computer screen. I wonder why, now I have to find out if there’s a way to adjust the color tone on the Samsung so it’s closer to what I get when I look at it at the PC.
Happy New Year. Learnt a few things this year as well, maybe this year I’ll buy a tablet computer to draw on, so I can draw digitally directly on screen. The MS Surface Pro 4 looks promising. I consider Wacom to bee too pricey at least at the moment. We’ll see. The main thing is whatever tool you use it comes down to commitment in the end, and I know it would be easier to be more productive with a Surface Pro 4 but it doesn’t mean I will have more time to put into this hobby and that I will be more productive, so. I look at my traditional tablet and I think: “-I’m ok with that one too.”
I’ve had time and inspiration to play around with the open source animation application – Pencil 2D. The usual way I do it is that I just start drawing sketch after sketch not giving many minutes to decide wether I press delete or keep. This one passed the delete button, so I decided to give it some coloring and a final touch.
These times of the year is usually busy for me, Therefore I don’t have that much time practicing my hobbies. This image was needed for an event that we arranged for a close relative. The image was drawn on the tablet computer i mentioned in earlier posts.
Because I just got one year older I hereby present my vision for the future. At some point getting older it gets tougher to move around so what would be better than trying out the next big thing: remote controlled slippers. 🙂
It’s been a wile since I have had time to look at Krita but I had this character which I drew with Pencil2D that I wanted to put some colors on so since Krita is more up to the task than Pencil2D I decided to take some time to learn using Krita again. This is my result, very basic coloring but as soon as I have time I’ll try to work some more with coloring and Krita there’s so much in Krita to explore and I have so much to learn about using colors.
