Enchanted Forest by arisuonpaa Enchanted Forest by arisuonpaa
This is my first painting done entirely in Krita. This replaces my previous workflow of going back and forth between Corel Painter and Photoshop.

In this painting I paid attention to having variation in edges and color. This means there are a mixture of hard, soft, and lost edges as well as some hue variations which gives more natural look. After all the nature itself is full of variation. You just need to be careful to still keep the harmony in place when varying the hues. For that the foreground only contains cool colors and all the warms are in the background. This time I also used some grays to make the adjacent colors more vivid.

For the subject itself I left room for the viewer to come up with a story. In my opinion it adds to the viewing experience.

this is great!  I love your use of color - it really does make the light in the scene more vivid, which is nice, since it casts more focus on the figure in your drawing.  This is beautifully painted.

This looks great! I'm glad you learned Krita, it was a bit difficult for me to adjust to it so I stayed on PS :') Love the different colour strokes on the eagle especially that purple.

For me it contained all the features I was using in Painter and Photoshop. On Mac it was way too prone to crash though, but on Windows things seem are working nicely. Also the Surface pen support is better than in most of the other drawing apps.
