Second beta of Krita 5 released! krita.org/en/item/second-beta- Please help us test it and report those pesky bugs!

Someone in Inkscape release thread: Inkscape's UI is sooo bad, they need to really simplify it. Honestly, they should look at a REAL ui, like ProCreate's!

(Procreate is a raster image editing application firstmost, inkscape a vector editing application, they cannot share the same UI, period.)

This is on the level of hackernews deciding Krita is an alternative to Adobe illustrator...

Stumbled upon a wonderful street view on Mapcrunch, so did a virtual plein-air study with it. Process recording can be viewed here - youtu.be/YrkkwKuX71E

Today I discovered that the back-up hard drive I thought was broken (due to it not spinning up anymore at one point), is in fact completely fine. Which is pretty great, because all the art files of back when I was a teenager are on there.

I managed to rescue some old comics from it which I was afraid I would've otherwise lost, which I'll write a proper blog post about at some point.

... I managed to get support into knewstuff (which Peruse uses), which is not insignificant, but there's no UI for people to add their own feeds just yet.

I had wanted to write a big blogpost about it, but without that I'm afraid it'll just come across as a wet fart, no matter how proud I might be it got in. Guess I'll write one when that part's done...

Current talk is amyspark talking about how they implemented gradient dithering in Krita :)

It's mostly a technical talk about dithering and thresholds.

LGM2021

The current talk is a collection of arguments in favour of foss projects having a better technical and legal framework for letting people donate and pay for foss development.

It goes through several pitfalls and arguments, such as 'what if the sponsored idea is bad', etc.

Current speaker is showing off their tool for assisting in creating webtoons, made with Godot. I am strongly reminded of the newgrounds flash period.

current talk is from a guy whose design studio is using only free software, and he's showing the different kinds of projects his studio has done, and how they use open source software to do product images and motion graphics.

It's always interesting to listen to people telling how they use their tools.

First time I hear of fspy, though...
