The DVD will have more than three hours of HD video focused on creating digital illustrations from scratch to the final print, including

  • An explanation of Krita's gui and the best way to setup Krita for maximum productivity and fun. Ramon will demonstrate a solid and productive workflow.
  • Creating interesting new brush presets, working with layers, masks and filters. color in theory and practice and an introduction to styles in art.
  • Creating an illustration from scratch: creating the ideas to begin with, sketching, getting into the flow, blocking, shading and values, painting a face, finishing the artwork with color and effects, printing considerations.

"Muses" will come with a full set of brushes and brush presets, icons ready to use with your own presets and much more. The voice over will be in English and Spanish, with unobtrusive pop-over messages for extra clarity.
