My name is Edgar Tadeo, or Ed for short. I’m a freelance comic book artist for Marvel, and pursuing animator … if I’m lucky. I’m residing in the islands of Philippines, there’s nothing to do but draw.
I paint professionally in a way. I draw comic book commissions using watercolors. I sometimes do it digitally.
Mainly I draw in comics. But lately I’ve been drawing animations.
There Alex Ross and Jim Lee who are both my heroes. They worked for Marvel and DC, which I’m still dreaming to work with.
I started way back around the year 2000 (maybe earlier than that), when I started as colorist for Marvel Comics. I couldn’t avoid digital painting for myself as I color pages of comics for Marvel.
I still use traditional painting. There’s a big pleasure seeing your work in full detail. I still draw on paper. I only use digital for
I can’t remember. I guess I read it somewhere, when someone said about the program. I searched it and found out that it can do animation. I’ve been wanting to use a freeware animation paint program that is easy to use.
My first impression was, I thought it is very complicated. I only tried it out because of the animation capabilities, I never thought of doing digital painting with it. Eventually, it was easy to use.
What I love about Krita is the animation. I wish developers can make it better.
So far I get less crash. Although, the annoying thing is the audio sync in animation. I wish they fix that soon.
Comparing to Photoshop, I think Krita can make good digital painting that looks like it was made with a real brush. However, PS is not a paint program, Krita’s advantage is its brushes.
I am so new to Krita. I can’t tell since I use this only for animation. Maybe this one:
I use just the basic tools of INKING. For the background are some various brushes.
