Benching Krita for artwork

I have lined and hatched  those images in an open source program called Krita.
Recently I’ve been trying out Krita. Why ? I don’t remember. But it just happens manga studio is being nasty and you already know I am not at ease with Photoshop when it comes to drawing line art.

So I’ve dived in Krita’s brushes’ settings to calibrate my tools and have nice lines like I did in manga studio, which led me to learn a lot about brushes in Krita but also in MS and PS as I was going back and forth to understand why this why that.

Bottom line is Krita is very capable and I love the lines I get. It’s the first time I feel like I’m manipulating my Chinese brush again.
It’s capable enough to make me turn a blind eye on the layer tree which I really don’t get along with and the dozen of crashes I had today with the program. Hopefully there is a very powerful back up system so I lost….0 data.
