Great news! I just released a new course at Udemy and at Skillshare titled “Digital painting with Krita 5.0 intermediate level“. Here are the links to the course:
Udemy = https://bit.ly/EA-UDEMY-EN-KRITA-INT
Skillshare = https://skl.sh/3Of8aSX
Please note that this online course is the continuation of the basic-level course that was released earlier. To ensure you can follow the course without problems, it’s recommended that you take the basic-level course first, before taking this one.
What will you learn?
In this course, you will learn advanced selection techniques. Then learn Vector Graphics techniques in Krita. From making basic primitive objects, to being able to create custom complex shapes. You will also learn the ins and outs of “Filter” and “Mask” in Krita. We will discuss various filters such as “HSV”, “Levels”, “Color Balance”, and so on. Including how to access hundreds of different “G’Mic filters”. Then, you will also learn the “Gradient” feature in detail. From the process of creating gradient presets, editing the gradient colors, until applying gradients using various methods.
After we learn the techniques, we will put them into practice by creating two different illustrations from start to finish. These two illustrations have something in common, that is, they both use the Vector technique combined with the Raster technique. But the way Vectors are used in each of these illustrations is very different. In the first illustration, where we will create a strawberry-shaped house, vector graphics are used as the base colors. Raster techniques are then used to add shadows, highlights, textures, and so on. Whereas in the second illustration, where we will draw a robot fighter character or “robot warrior“, Vector graphics are used to create an outline or “line art“. For the coloring process, we will explore a different technique. That is, we will start with defining shadings and highlights in grayscale. Then we add colors to it using the “gradient map” filter. And after that, we apply various raster techniques to add lighting effects and finalize the illustration.
There are still many things that you will learn from this course. It is impossible to explain all of them in this short text description. Please refer to the curriculum section in the course landing page if you want to learn more.
I hope this course can be useful.
