Kiki's Running Cycle

Since one of the main feature to be added in Krita 3.0 was animation, the splash was designed to reflect that. At the time, I realized that as a self-taught artist, the lack of basic training really began to limit what I can draw. So I went back to study the basics, and tried to limit the complicated details and flashy effects so that I could focus on the basic shapes and color relationships. The study of anatomy enabled me to draw the “different frames” of Kiki’s running cycle here.
