Personal work notes, resources, tutorials and stuff!
I put brushes that I use the most into this Krita bundle, please use them if you'd like!
Krita brushes notes
Some notes I made myself to remember how to recreate them in the future:
other Krita bundles that I like
I also use the following additional (external) resources, made by great artists:
- Rakurri's gradient maps and brush pack (I use the "Aurora" brush to paint winter lights and "Frosted" smudge tool to add random grain texture by brushing around)
- Digital Atelier - thanks to Ramon Miranda for confirming with me its compatibility with Krita 5 (I use the DA Pastel 13 Blender Soft and DA WaterC 11 Blender edges to create textures)
- FizzyFlower's ESSENTIAL Brush Collection Version 2 (I use the cloud brushes with some opacity and flow modification)
CSP brushes list
I no longer use CSP since I migrated to Linux in 2021. The version that I used was CSP EX v1.
The following is the brushes that I use a lot:
Some workflow notes and/or other things that have helped me in working!
Sometimes they're software specific.
keyboard shortcuts (drawing)
I draw on my laptop, and so I designed myself these keyboard shortcuts for left-hand usage.
These shortcuts are adapted from Krita and CSP, currently I implement all of these on Krita.
- A - brush tool
- S - move tool
- D - select/ lasso tool
- F - filler/ bucket tool
- G - alpha-lock tool
- Z - foreground/ transparent colour switcher (instead of erase tool)
- X - canvas flip tool
- C - crop tool
- V - ruler tool
- < - replacement of the default delete key (in portuguese keyboard, this key is on the left side of Z key)
- Ctrl + A - select all
- Ctrl + D - deselect (CSP native)
- Ctrl + 1 - document info
- Ctrl + Q - reset canvas rotation
- Ctrl + W - merge group/ merge layer to the layer below
- Ctrl + R - create transparency mask
- Ctrl + Shift + A - change colour of entire canvas (CSP native, for Krita, alpha-lock must be activated or else the entire canvas will be filled with the colour)
- Ctrl + Shift + C - duplicate a layer (a quick Ctrl + C and Ctrl + D )
- Ctrl + Shift + W - flatten/ rasterize a vector layer
- Krita - to draw: illustration, graphics, comics, etc.
- GIMP - to quickly crop images or any small modifications
- Inkscape - to make texts if I need them to "follow paths" (because I don't like Krita's text tool)
- Scribus - to make PDFs
- OBS - to record timelapse videos and do livestream
- Kdenlive - to edit and reencode videos
- RenPy - to develop VNs
- VS Code - to program my website and VNs
- Joplin - to dump notes, checklists and everything else
- Minder - to mind-map ideas
- XPad - desktop sticky notes (I don't use it a lot anymore)
- Libre Office - general word processor, spreadsheet and more
