I have too many hobbies :) This is half of a page for my Spiderman minicomic. I sketched out 5 pages and I hope to be done with them this year! :P Anyone has a good idea how to speed it up, considering that I use this "sculpting" technique because I have no idea how to make a lineart look good? I decided to not constrain myself to one technique and just do what is easiest/fastest, but... I still want it to look nice.

I recently got an android tablet with eInk screen and stylus. eInk is what e-readers and the like use, so I can take it outside, and because it ran android I am of course running #Krita on it.

The device gives a lot of lag compared to regular led/lcd, but on the other hand this is the first time I've been able to sit outside on an overcast day and draw on a tablet.

So have some Canada geese, they were the only ones sitting still enough. The ducks and rock pigeon just ran past me.

Koko is a great image viewer designed for #PlasmaMobile. Unfortunately, up until recently it did not work great on desktop computers. This changed last week with various small patches to Koko’s code and Kirigami.


Alright, my transformable patterns work is in master now, so if you're inclined, check out the #krita nightly of... well, coming night.
