Krita Critter


This image might be familiar to readers who remember the British TV artist Tony Hart.  It’s my quick attempt at the logo for his “Vision On” programme.  I’m trying out a drawing package called Krita.  When I saw the mirroring tool I immediately wanted to try the reproduce the “Vision On” logo.

And why am I trying Krita when I love Manga Studio so much?  Well, with the inexorable push to move to Windows 10, I am feeling more inclined to jump from the Microsoft ship into the ocean that is Linux.  Krita is available on both platforms whereas Manga Studio is not.  Plus, and this is not a negligible factor, Manga Studio is priced very reasonably but Krita is absolutely free.  🙂
