And so, finally I can present to you my first ever ‘proper’ illustration, done using a nifty little program called Krita. It’s the Mitnotour from Tekkonkinkreet, a pretty cool character. If you haven’t seen it, then see it. It has mystery, lots of suspense, a feeling of nostalgia and inertia and a deep and layered plot involving change, moving on and a plethora of other themes.
Krita, the program I used to create this, is free and open-source, so if you, too, like to do your artwork on the computer then I highly reccommend this program as an alternative to programs like photoshop or Manga Studio. They all have their merits but this program is a nice all-rounder – one of the best that £0 can buy you :). It works with major graphics tablets like Wacom and my Huion H610 Pro, and is pretty powerful so you can do a fair bit on there.
