Krita 2.9 recently released, is a robust, fast and flexible painting application that makes creating art from scratch or existing resources a fun and productive experience. With many powerful brush engines and unique features such as multihand, mirrored and wraparound painting, Krita explicitly supports creating illustrations, concept art, storyboards, textures, matte paintings and comic books.
Krita 2.9 Kickstarter update
- Perspective – A simple, but powerful, cousin to the regular transform, with a vanishing point to precisely get the perspective right.
- Cage and Liquify — Based on the same principles, and with the same precision (4px is the highest precision) can now be used to do intricate deformation where warp just doesn’t cut it.
- Warp Improvements — Improvements to the quality have been made. Both warp and cage transformations now allow multi-point selection with the ctrl shortcut. The transform tool’s UI has also completely updated to make it easier to use. The tool options have been rearranged for maximum efficiency.
- Transform Masks – These allow for non-destructive transformation and await more improvements in the near future. Perspective and regular transform update instantly when you paint on them, but warp, cage and liquify will take 3 seconds pause before changes to the original update the transform. This is so that your CPU doesn’t get overworked, burns out, buys a Harley, leaves for a trip around the world and replaces you with a younger, blonder model.
