Made cha siu (Chinese bbq) meat buns today alongside dumplings. I wanted to experiment a little, and it's my birthday tomorrow so I was at my parents' place with the big kitchen.
Went pretty well though I keep underestimating the strength of the oven, so my pork was done in half the time. Dumplings ended up fine, though take so much time to fold. Am super tired now. And birthday in 10 minutes...
Ah yes, #firefox, the 'dad-jokes' browser.
Shading tutorial for comics using Krita - by David Revoy https://peertube.touhoppai.moe/videos/watch/a956310f-8913-46aa-9531-976bd2300548
Blog post describing everything I've learned: https://wolthera.info/2019/03/making-crochet-animation-in-krita-and-kdenlive/
And the steps as square animations added to this post.
Further work. I originally scaled the animation up to 3840 × 2160, which was useful for inking, but it was just a little too much for Krita. Given that I doubled the fps (64 frames are rendered, but really, less are made), the whole file was 3 giB, and Krita itself was eating 5 giB of ram, I didn't even manage to render it without Krita oom-killed. Scaled down to 3200×1600
The hands are somewhat done now. There's still some issues. The yarn needs to be done still, and color on the hook.

As a total aside, this thing is being animated in Krita master with the AddressSanitizer enabled, meaning I get a crash the instant Krita does something funny with memory and get a really useful backtrace to go with that.
Only had a single crash for this session :)
(That is, this is me doing serious testing Krita as well ;) )
Continuing work on this. I added an extra step, made the thread red so it's more visible(final thread will probably need to be a unique color compared to the rest). Smoothed the hand motion a bit and put a pause between all the steps so they're discernible.
Sort of wondering whether I should slow it down further or whether the different steps are sufficiently identifiable.
New animation project. The idea came from learning crochet but having a hard time understanding instructions, so to make schematic animation that shows how the stitch is done without too much extra info like in a youtube tutorial.
Right now trying to find a good composition. The initial image is the composition at which I made it, but I think maybe the others showcase the stich better, but maybe then the position of the hands is too vague.
Will also need to slow down; more frames.
.@krita 4.2.0: first and only painting app that supports HDR hardware. HDR monitors give more brightness and a wider palette of colors.
Near real-world range of colors, including more greens and reds and 10 to 16 bits per channel, allowing for much smoother gradations.
WARNING: Windows only release! Mainly because there is no other operating system that currently supports HDR hardware. As soon as there are drivers for HDR hardware for Linux and macOS, we'll be ready.
A preview of Krita 4.2.0, the first painting application to bring HDR support to windows: https://krita.org/en/item/krita-4-2-0-the-first-painting-application-to-bring-hdr-support-to-windows/
Krita developer/manual writer, also uses Krita to draw. Also occasionally posts comics and gamedev stuff.
