Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

I can't help but to think that Krita is a lost cause. When they talk about Krita 5 they're putting this new resources management system on a pedestal and talking about how they've been working on it for years and how it basically defines the whole version. But what it effectively is, is lists of things. Like a list of brushes that they can export and import. They're treating this as some kind of revolutionary step forward for the program that took them years to accomplish, but this is unironically some programming 101 student exercise -tier shit. This shouldn't even be a feature, it should just be there. Just add the thing. There's only 2 reasons why they would think it's so important, the first is that the current codebase is some horrifying eldritch abomination, and the second is that nobody over there knows how to program for shit. But the way they glorify this system makes me think it's the latter. So instead of doing actually useful and real things like fixing the fucking text tool so people can use the program properly, they've been spending several years making a list that they can read and write from a file in case someone wants to share brushes more conveniently. To be clear, that functionality already exists in the program, they just made it less buggy. It's probably better to look forward to future Gimp versions. Gimp development is glacially slow, but they have some actually important features in the roadmap that could make it more usable.
>>1060 > I can't help but to think that Krita is a lost cause. Krita is a great cause for me. The program is great for creating images in it's current iteration, and it improves with every version. > There's only 2 reasons why they would think it's so important, the first is that the current codebase is some horrifying eldritch abomination [...] Most big software projects have horrible code. That's the nature of programming something that gets actual work done. Find me a better software and I'll switch to it, if the benefits are worth the effort. > So instead of doing actually useful and real things like fixing the fucking text tool so people can use the program properly, they've been spending several years making [...] I'm not quite sure why people complain about the text tool. I use the text tool and it's very nice. It even shows you the SVG data and allows for a lot of customization. > It's probably better to look forward to future Gimp versions I'm using Krita and Gimp. But Krita is superior for drawing and painting in my opinion, because it was made with a focus on drawing and painting. Gimp is great tool, but a jack of all trades and a master of none. I don't want a blunt axe-shovel-pickaxe, but a sharp axe.
>>1059 > your onion board is trash and you're NGMI Krita stan beg It's not my board. But I'm the main contributor to the /oc/ part of it.
>>1061 Shut the fuck up you absolute retarded monkey nigger, I recognize your writing style and the usage of a phrase along the line of "it improves with every version". I am not using the latest version of Krita because the program gets fucking WORSE with new versions. I've been using 4.1.7 for who knows how long because to my knowledge it's the last version before they started fucking up some important UX things such as making the layer list jump up and down when you make a selection and adding some horrible latency to some selection-related action that I don't remember now. I can't even remember the last time any update did anything worth a shit, they constantly focus on shitty features that literally nobody cares about like windows 10 exclusive HDR monitor support or some animation features. >Most big software projects have horrible code. That's the nature of programming something that gets actual work done. Spoken like someone who doesn't know shit. No it isn't. That's the nature of retarded developers. I know enough about programming to know that this shit isn't fucking hard, I've even made a fucking graphics editor program before so I have a rough idea of how to organize things in one. I don't know how to describe it to someone who doesn't know how to program, but the only way this would be hard is if they did the equivalent of building their house inside out and/or connecting pipes and electrical wires back and forth in the middle of rooms, and using some Trusted Walmart Universal Smart Glue Clip Connectorâ„¢ to attach half of everything together instead of just connecting them normally. >I'm not quite sure why people complain about the text tool. How about because it's FUCKING UNUSABLE? Have you even ever tried a text tool on another graphics program? If you just want to slap in a couple words and don't give a fuck about the fonts then it's fine, assuming you're lucky enough not to be affected by the garbage visual glitches the "new" text tool introduced. But if you use it regularly and know what you're doing and just want to get it done, then it's worse than any other real graphics program that I've seen. I usually prefer to write text in fucking MS Paint and copy paste it into Krita than use the shitty Krita text tool because MS paint is easier, more consistent, less buggy, gives higher quality result, and remembers the font I previously used. >Gimp is great tool, but a jack of all trades and a master of none. Gimp is a master of a whole lot of things if you compare it to Krita. The reason it's not as usable is because it has terrible UI/UX and it's missing some important basics like selecting multiple layers. But in terms of quality in most actions it's better than Krita. >I don't want a blunt axe-shovel-pickaxe, but a sharp axe. If that was true then you wouldn't be white knighting for either of these programs and would rightfully criticize them where they fucking suck. Nothing is going to ever improve if you feel the need to dismiss all of your favorite football team's flaws and ignore the advantages of the other team just because your favorite team is better in some ways that you prefer.
>>1063 > I am not using the latest version of Krita because the program gets fucking WORSE with new versions.

I can't even remember the last time any update did anything worth a shit, they constantly focus on shitty features that literally nobody cares about like windows 10 exclusive HDR monitor support or some animation features. I'm currently using 4.4.3 and don't have any major issues. The only thing that sometimes happens is that the software crashes if I work on files that are too big for my RAM and CPU to handle. Photoshop was worse though, in my experience. > >Most big software projects have horrible code.

If it's not that hard, then there should be more quality alternatives to Krita. The fact of the matter is that there aren't any, because it's not that easy to write a cross platform graphics program with all the features Krita provides. > >I'm not quite sure why people complain about the text tool. > How about because it's FUCKING UNUSABLE?

I usually prefer to write text in fucking MS Paint and copy paste it into Krita than use the shitty Krita text tool because MS paint is easier, more consistent, less buggy, gives higher quality result, and remembers the font I previously used. I've used many different Graphics programs, which include GIMP, Krita, Manga Studio 5, Clip Studio Paint, PaintStorm, Photoshop CC, Mypaint, and whatever I forgot. I think it would be helpful for you to understand that Krita might run different on different systems. I never had issues with the Software. But apparently others sometimes had major issues. I'm on GNU/Linux. > >Gimp is great tool, but a jack of all trades and a master of none. > Gimp is a master of a whole lot of things if you compare it to Krita. The reason it's not as usable is because it has terrible UI/UX and it's missing some important basics like selecting multiple layers. But in terms of quality in most actions it's better than Krita. The main reason I don't use GIMP for drawing and painting is because I couldn't manage to replicate a workflow similar in efficiency as what I've grown used to from using Photoshop for a few years. Krita allows me to be very productive compared to GIMP. At least if we compare the two programs in regards to creating illustrations. > >I don't want a blunt axe-shovel-pickaxe, but a sharp axe. > If that was true then you wouldn't be white knighting for either of these programs and would rightfully criticize them where they fucking suck. Nothing is going to ever improve if you feel the need to dismiss all of your favorite football team's flaws and ignore the advantages of the other team just because your favorite team is better in some ways that you prefer. I'm not "white knighting" for any piece of software, because I see them as tools and not an extension of my ego. I just share my honest to God opinion. But from our posts it's very apparent we had very different experiences with the Krita. P.S. Your very aggressive way of talking takes away from the credibility of your post. If you already put in the effort to share your opinion, I would recommend doing it from a more distant point of view. It's usually not wise to listen to people who have such little control over their emotions, because it can easily cloud their view.
>>1060 >>1063 Criticize Krita all you like but Gimp is absolutely fucking awful for drawing and/or painting with, always has been, always will be, and there's no way you can sit here with a straight face and tell anybody otherwise. It's a great image editing program though.
Not that I have much concern over this 'debate' one way or the other, but a) I'm an artist with a good tablet and plenty of experience using Photoshop with it. b) I've used both Krita and GIMP, and c) I find Krita far easier to reason about and to use than GIMP. My chief complaint about Krita is working with text in it. Beyond that I much prefer it to GIMP. That is all.
Krita's mascot is a cute furry thingy, Gimp's mascot is a fucking pepper. There is nothing to compare
>>1067 > Krita's mascot is a cute furry thingy, Gimp's mascot is a fucking pepper. There is nothing to compare Aye.

>>1161 It's an onion link, so you would have to access it through the Tor browser. The site itself, Phichannel, seems to be pretty sparsely populated. I suspect it will probably stay that way, unless it's accessible via clearnet.
>>1160 > Is this so that we can have another bunker? I don't see the rationale for having another splinter board otherwise. It has Software I like and an admin I like. But it's not meant to fractionate. It's just an aaddition. You can see it as a bunker if you want. I like to connected different places to each other to crete a take down resilient network. Nanochan, 8chan.moe, anon.cafe, the draw thread on zzzchan /v/, now Phichannel. I cross link these sites, to create web independend of software.
I've created a mega for the krita tutorials I've made: https://mega.nz/folder/BkZkjZJT#SGj236RlrmhUgGweoOJjuQ I'll add new videos in the future. Next video will probably be on creating animation sprite sheets for game development. I'll focus on populating this place for now.
Here is the mega link to my pdfs. https://mega.nz/folder/tgBnEaqY#-PzCdwqe5D2eV8WNVZtgDA I don't want to be keep that link exclusively on a Tor only imageboard.

Krita 5 added a "Recorder" docker, which you can use to easily createa speedpainting video. WAOW. I will now record everything I do, so I can share the cool bits here on this board. It exports to all kinds of formats and allows to specify a custom FPS for the video as well as for the images fed to ffmpeg during the video creation. Formats include: - Gif - MPEG4 - Matroska - webm I'm willing to accept the bloat for such an awesome feature. The recordings also don't give you nausea, because things like the rotation, zoom or translation of the canvas relative to the GUI are not recorded. (Although I wouldn't recommend cancelling the export process, because Krita crashes for me when I do that. Also holding the last frame doesn't seem to currently work. Also exporting to gif seems to not include all frames.) Have a taste.

I've officially dropped Nanochan as a place where I post. I've downloaded the database and dipped. I'm reasonably sure it's compromised. Now that 8ch*n.moe and Nanochan dropped away, I can fully focus on posting on posting in this place. :D
>>1203 Baseless. Respond to >>1202
Fuck modern day GNU+Linux. It's just a kernel with unstable bloated trash on top which is taped together. Poettering is everywhere. Don't want dbus, elogind, polkit, xpra, systemd, weird apparmor libs, etc. etc. on your system? Well, fuck you, nigger! ... I'm off to OpenBSD. I'm going where the grass is greener. Let's see when I'll be able to create digital art in Krita again. Until I manage to port the xf86-input-wacom tools, I won't be able to use my graphics tablet to draw and paint. I'll be programming. Maybe chadchad can become a thing now. OpenBSD is actually an operating syatem that respects the users intelligence and security needs. Tommow a new year will start. I will not look back to GNU or Linux. This feels like the jump from Windows to GNU+Linux. Now it's Linux to OpenBSD. Give me another five years and I'll start writing my own operating system for RISC-V. I'll try to post OpenGL shader art in the future. Tuturutuuuuuu. Go forth my little Artchad an conquer OpenBSD! :^D
>>1263 I just went back to linux because how slow openbsd is without hyperthreading and other junk. Maybe i will go back to openbsd one day, after i git gud.

>>1270 > if you hate systemdicks so much just use a distro without it. devuan is a good start. Yeah, I've used Devuan for around three years now. (Currently writing from a Devuan System.) Unfortunately OpenBSD doesn't support my graphics card. R.I.P. Back on Ganoo+Linucks. I've starting to learn OpenGL. I'm currently also playing around with filters and more technical features of Krita. Here are some tests:
>>1286 Gentoo just works and the amount of freedom and choice the user gets is worth the hassle for some
>>1270 I literally said nothing about systemd, i think you reffed the wrong post, i DO hate systemd thought. All non-systemd distros are snake oils. $ pacman -Qi |grep -B10 systemd gives 4 packages in artix. I changed elogind and udev already but everytime you want to install something from AUR elogind or udev is a dep soo you have to edit the makepkg file. Systemd is literal cancer and it won't stop until it replaces every low level software with systemd-dependant, bloated and unmaintainable alternatives. >>1291 I already compile a lot of software myself, i got filtered by kernel compilation years ago, i won't get filtered now. If my current system dies i will install gentoo or funtoo.

Some value simplifications to study dark shapes and lines.
Alpine seems to be nice Linux distribution. It aims to be minimalist and uses open-rc. I might've finally found a save haven, that doesn't constantly stop working. My devuan install just stopped working, because NSA-san thought I was using Debian and didn't realize I use Devuan instead. So his glowware just exploded in my face and forced me to reinstall. That was the final straw. Alpine it shall be. musl-libc > glibc
Xorg running. Nouveau drivers running. (Just had to remove a bunch of crap in /etc/modprobe.d . Krita not compiled, because when using View --> Detach canvas the flickering goes aways and allows dwm to nicely tile the detatched canvas. :^D
