The THREE new Seed pages are finally here!
I am really sorry for the long wait. ;_;
You guys should go check out Seed if you haven’t already. The characters are adorable and the art and story are fantastic :D. It’s always a treat when this pops up in the RSS reader, and there were three pages this time *o*
Everyone!! After years and years, Paint Tool SAI is finally getting an upgrade! Go try the Paint Tool SAI 2 beta!
Just a few of the new features:
- 64 bit/multi-core support
- Font tool with text layers
- Bigger canvases! Up to 100,000 x 100,000px canvas size for 64 bit
- Bigger max brush size (up to 5000px)
- Circle and line rulers
- Perspective ruler (guide lines for 1 - 3 point perspective)
- Select/edit multiple layers at once
- Upgrade for free if you already have a SAI 1 license
Paint Tool SAI is my number one recommended art program for digital painters and this just makes it even better! The new font tool and canvas size limits, especially, should make it so much easier for people trying to make comics.
This is still in beta, so it’s untranslated and has some bugs. But it’s still great news! Go try it out!
Omgomgomgomgomg @___@ Downloading now.
Trying out the newest version of Krita. I love the symmetry tools they have. Mirroring is flawless and works just as well as it does in Manga Studio. The Multibrush tool has an option that lets you duplicate and spread the brush tips so it’s like you’re drawing with a bristled brush complete with pressure for each bristle. It’s awesome *__*
I also found out that Krita is an amazing tool for creating seamless textures. There’s a View option called “wrap-around mode” which makes it literally impossible to create a texture that doesn’t tile perfectly. It’s a much better solution than Photoshop’s Offset filter. Krita will be my go-to for textures from now on :)
Gah! I found some poke-sketches while I was rummaging through my sketch folder XD. I can’t remember when I drew these, but I think I was feeling nostalgic :P
The image at the top was just one of the sketches, but I added some dialogue and a second panel to it because pokeshipping :B
New Windows build!
There’s a new windows build ready to test. The XP build will came a little bit later. This is still a development build, on the road towards Krita 2.8, which is expected for January.
If you guys haven’t had a chance to try out what could probably be the best free drawing/painting application around, they’ve just released a new build to test on Windows!
Krita is leaps and bounds better than Photoshop for painting and a hundred times more user-friendly than GIMP. It’s super fast and responsive when you enable OpenGL and has a ton of awesome default brushes and brush options to fiddle with. I’m looking forward to the full 2.8 release :)
Wanted to try to draw something outside of my color comfort zone. This was also a test to see how quickly I could throw together a composition, and it took about 20 minutes, so that’s progress I guess XD.
I have Clip/Manga Studio to thank for being able to draw those speed lines in the background. The “eradiation curve” ruler is awesome *__*
Oh, and by the way, with any luck the next page of Everblue should be up in a day or two :’)
