[ thx for the DD ! wow ♥ ]

I made a speedpainting last week-end, then I decided to make a small comic strip with it.
But now it is done, I have mixed feeling about this mini project.
On one side Speedpainting technics made it flexible ( big love to Krita transform/warp tool and deform brush engine ) , and I could work on ambiant, rendering and lighting as I wanted ( this part can really frustrate me when I start with line-art , or any black-and-white outline ). So, I had fun.
On the other side, I couldn't spend time on the background, and kept it rough ; I also think all this visual noise affect the readability and make the time even slower. I did hesitate to even add text and small sound Fx till the last moment. So, I don't think speedpainting rendering ( the way I do it ) is optimal for visual storytelling ; and also it's time consumming. It wasn't easy to draw characters , making details out of the cloudy brush strokes. Next one, I'll probably try another strategy to find a satisfying rendering, and keep flexible fun.
Painting: Krita , Post-Fx: Gimp/Gmic

Nice work deevad!  Don't know why it took me so long to see this.  Also, have you ever tried making work with Krita's vector engine?

This is absolutely lovely! I love your painting style here! How it's kind of sketchy, but then the characters are rendered more cleanly, which gives them more focus and it works so well! Lovely job with the lighting and the atmosphere...and the story is super adorable too! Lovely! :D
