#Krita #MastoArt #ArtWithOpenSource #TheWitcher #CreativeCommons

A digital painting cartoon parody of "The Witcher" with a mastodon-ified Geralt and Jaskier in the street of a castle (with the banner of the Fediverse). Mastogeralt is on a horse, happy, while mastoJaskier sing ahead of the horse, just walking and playing the luth. In the large audience (painterly) we can recognise Ai or Pleroma.

The Overturned Cauldron of Magic Potion

This is a remake of an old sketch. I did it to try out the new brush presets while drawing the upcoming episode.

#krita #sketchbook #MastoArt
#creativecommons #ArtWithOpenSource

A black and white sketch of Pepper, then a very young witch, in a scene where she is disgusted and discouraged after knocking over a magic cauldron almost her own size. The scene takes place afterwards, at a time when she no doubt imagines having to clean up and start all over again. That particularly thankless moment after any such disaster... Carrot, curious by nature, looks at the viscous liquid spilled on the floor.

A digital sheet of concept with four time the same character: a tiny cute sloth. First post is happy with a little heart nearby their head. A pose expresses surprise. Another full body pose shows the sloth in a three, curious. Last pose is about the sloth eating leaves and being happy excited about it.

I made a new avatar generator for Peertube mascot squid-like characters.. 😛t:

You can play with it here:

It's a personal contribution to the Peertube-plugin-livechat (WIP, link to the plugin on the generator page).

#krita #MastoArt #ArtWithOpenSource
#peertube #avatar #generator

28 randomly generated colorful and cute squid avatars. Some plays guitare, other have headset, bonsai tree, laptop, with many accessories and gears that make them all unique.
In the center, Sepia, the official mascot of Peertube blends into their new group of friends.

Here is the painting process of the illustration I posted today. Painted and created with the built-in Krita recorder.

🌱 My Neighbor Mastodon 3

Thanks, thanks, *thanks* for being more than 25K to follow my art here!

#Mastoart #ArtWithOpensource #krita

A digital painting artwork depicting a giant mastodon playing a sort of ocarina on a branch, under the moon light of the 'teapot' moon (a moon from Pepper&Carrot webcomic). On the branch, also seat Pepper, a young witch and her cat Carrot. They both also play ocarina. The scene is a parody of a still from "My Neighbor Totoro" by Studio Ghibli.

🐧 I wrote a new blog entry listing all the changes I made to turn the Lenovo Yoga 370 into my mobile GNU/Linux digital painting device. It's long because it contains detailed instructions for beginners. I hope it is helpful.

Ps: not sponsored or an adv: the machine is from 2019.

A photo of the Lenovo 370 Yoga device, running Fedora 38 with a digital sketch of Pepper penciled on the canvas of Krita. A photo of tweaks and DIY I do on the top of a Wacom Bamboo Ink stylus.
- Dots of varnish to feel the buttons
- I removed the metalic part at the end.
- Textured tape.

🌱 My Neighbor Mastodon 2

Thank you, thank you, *thank you* for being more than 20K to follow my art here. It's fantastic.

#Mastoart #ArtWithOpensource #krita #HumanArt
A digital painting illustration being a parody of an iconic scene of the movie "My Neighbor Totoro"; but instead of Totoro it's a big Mastodon, and the two girls are replaced by Pepper and Carrot, the OC of my webcomic. The scene is a large view angle under rain at night on a bus stop, the sign has '20K' written on it and a sticker of a red heart symbol on the corner. Pepper has Carrot sleeping on her back, she is under an umbrella, waiting for the bus. She looks on her side, amused, and discover a large cartoony mastodon also waiting for the bus, and covered only with a large leaf on his head. He looks at her as if he was suprised she noticed him and even blushes a bit.

I'll do a 50min commented Krita live painting for the first edition of Creative Freedom Summit, a new virtual conference for creatives using open source tools! ☺️🎨
