fantasy tree house by Deevad fantasy tree house by Deevad
Still continuing test with a newer painting workflow ( same technic than [link] ) . This time over another old sketch to test organic landscape elements. I think I found great shortcut in the process to do faster digital painting with Gimp / G'mic / Krita / Mypaint on Linux , and adapt them well to my way to handle steps.

I'll keep this technic for illustration, thats sure ; but for comics I changed my mind. I don't like really myself 'painted' comics. I think painting is great for illustration, but not enough 'graphic' to have a good flow of storytelling for comics / graphic novel frame.
I need to find something else :) I'll post about it.
( btw, a tutorial about this illustrative technics with FLOSS on the way )

Note : I post here a 1920x1080 wallpaper optimised result , in case you wants a colorfull fantasy home on your desk :D

I love this, specially the coloring. I wonder, where to find the tutorial (if it exists ...) :-). Great picture with very useful info on options on Linux. Thanks!

It reminds me of Legend of Mana. Loved the art in that game.

This looks really amazing. I love the colors and the lines of the tree. It looks very "traditional" eventhough it is done digitally. Feels very illustrated or painted with watercolor. Good job!

BTW, trees: how do you them. More particuraly the leaves in a volumetric fashion. And was it from life?

Deevad Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hehe, if you see well , on this artwork I treat leaves as fluffy balls ; so I focus more on shading the 'group' of leaves than really detailing leaves one by one.

Actually, I have no problem shading. It's just those "inside" lines that help indicate he form.

May I ask something? Is MyPaint alone able to do full-blown work like this in your opinion?
Reply
:icondeevad:
Deevad Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Hi and thanks. No, I don't think Mypaint alone can.
Here is what feature would be need for this :
- A better stabilisation than what offer the "slow position tracking" ; thats why I prefer to draw on paper , I think. ( On FLOSS, no painting software have stabilisation, path smoothing )
- Tools to select and deform ; here I used Gimp to deform a bit my base drawing ( Filter > Iwarp , select/copy/paste/move )
- Filter to smooth lines from my scan ( G'Mic > Rendering > Photocomix smoothing )
- More brush blending modes , to paint the color sketch as I did with Krita ( ex : Overlay / Multiply / Dodge )
- Gradient tool for air color on a screen layer blending mode ( final touch in Gimp )
- Last filters in Gimp ( Unsharp, color balance, contrast etc )

So, Mypaint have few chance to gather one day those tools. Krita would be normally more into a position of having all of this in the future 5 years.
