Digital Painting With Krita : Basic Level


Assalamualaikum, my name is Widhi Muttaqien
from expose academy. I am an entrepreneur and also an academic
lecturer in computer graphic disciplines. I teach digital painting, 3D and 2D animation,
web design, motion graphic, game development and other computer graphic related topics. Krita is a graphic application comparable
to Photoshop. But unlike Photoshop, Krita is an open source
project, so anyone can use Krita without having to pay anything for the software license. Krita was built from the ground up as a digital
painting software first in mind. That is why if you want to create drawing
or illustration, Krita will me make you feel right at home. If you never use Krita before and you want
to master it fast. Then this course is your best solution. It is designed for complete beginners, so
no experience needed at all. Or, if you used Photoshop before and you want
to move to Krita then this course is for you also. Because in this course I will mention a lot
about Photoshop’s comparable features when explaining the features inside Krita. We will cover a lot of things In this course. But we will start from zero, and that is the
general computer graphic concepts such as the difference between raster and vector,
color models, bit depth per channel, etc. Then I will explain how to make Krita runs
smoother and how to set up drawing tablets for optimal result. So yes, you will need a drawing tablet to
really gain the maximum benefits of using Krita and to gain benefits from this course. After that, we will cover the basic features
of Krita. From how to work with documents, how to customize
the UI, how to navigate the canvas and then learn how to use the brush tool. Next, we will learn about how to work with
color such as selecting color and picking color from the existing colors. After that, we will learn about layer and
different properties of layer such as alpha inheritance, opacity, blending modes, group
layer, etc. These layer features are essential to make
crafting complex artwork much easier and manageable. Next we will discuss about selection. And after that we will learn how to customize
Krita even further for faster digital painting workflow. We will then cover basic shading concepts
and shading methods while doing this skull illustration project from start to finish. After the skull project we will learn more
advanced techniques and strategy while we do this hands on project creating this tree
on a hill illustration from sketch to the final artwork. I will teach you a very versatile non-destructive
workflow that will allows you to create many different variations of artworks from a single
artwork fast. This is very important in a fast paced production
such as in the game industry for example. So, join now and start creating masterpieces
with Krita! See you on the other side. Wassalamualaikum.
