Krita 2.9 The Kickstarter released

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.
