Art is design.
One of the most important parts of design is VALUE.
Krita makes it amazingly easy to paint in color while keeping an eye on your greyscale values IN REAL TIME using this LUT thingie.
I can’t explain the feature too well, but here’s a short video that shows how to activate it. From there, you can keep an eye on your values even as you’re painting in color!
I started using it in my HEROES OF HOUNDSMOUTH piece and it CHANGED MY LIFE.
This tip isn’t exactly new, but I wanted to archive it here for posterity.
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
Inspired by WINGS OF FIRE, book 2.
OK, how come I spent two hours painting over a random sketch I drew months ago, but won’t invest the time in, oh, say, painting my own novel characters? Ah, well!
Dunno if I learned much here, but I sure *tried* a lot of new things.
Worked on this during General Conference (#ldsconf) today. Time to break for the weekend so I can see the errors (Pro Tip: They’re probably all on that wonky shield uuugh.)
First: the basics.

Love how Krita lets me paint in color AND see my values in real time!
Ditched the dress and did some neon green fire from the “Aflame” card.
Still dunno where to put the text! HA HA!
