Krita Is Kinda Awesome

The other night I was wandering aimlessly through internetland and stumbled across something called KRITA. On a whim, I downloaded it to the Surface Pro 4 tablet I was using and began experimenting with it. I was shocked with the results.

First of all, let me say I know next to nothing about KRITA… except that it’s awesome and it’s FREE! It is a digital painting program that looks, feels and functions like Photoshop… and did I mention it was absolutely free?!

I loaded up one of my little sermon note sketches and began testing the brush engine. It responded like a trooper. This is NOT just another simple little drawing app, this is a full blown digital painting program. If you know your way around Photoshop it’s pretty easy to pick up. If not, there would probably be a bit of a learning curve to it, but well worth the effort.

It worked great on a PC and it probably would work fine on a MAC (like I said, I know next to nothing about it) so if you’re looking for a good digital painting program (or a substitute for Photoshop because you can’t afford it) you might want to give this a test drive. What have you got to lose… IT’S FREE!

Silver Weasel Warrior 2.0

Back in 2011, my very first post on this blog was my take on Frank Frazetta’s Silver Warrior illustration. A fellow emailed me yesterday and asked if I would make this available for purchase in my ImageKind Shop, so I loaded it up for him. As a public service TO YOU, my dearest of friends and NOT self-serving to me in ANY way, shape or form… I wanted you all to know it’s there, too.

Tackle Football

I can not believe it’s December, we are entering the final stages of the professional tackle football season and I’m last place in my fantasy football league. My strategy of drafting only players with fishy names did not work at all!
