My name is Przemek Świszcz. I also publish as Graphos. I’m a drawer and a graphic artist. I do comic strips and illustrations and create in 3D as well.
I draw professionally but it is also my hobby. And fortunately, I can bring it together.
Among the many excellent artists, my favorite creators are Grzegorz Rosiński, Janusz Christa, Simon Bisley and Don Rosa. However, not only comics artists but also many others are inspiration for me.
This is connected with computer games. I’m a gamer myself so I combined these two hobbies. That’s the reason why I draw such forms as concept art. I decided to try my hand at digital.
I still use some traditional techniques like watercolor, acrylic and drawing ink. But digital gives endless possibilities and enables editing. Most of all, it is very handy. I have all works on the computer immediately, there is no need to scan and process. This is especially important with regard to comic books.
I found out about Krita when I bought a graphic tablet and I was looking for an appropriate drawing tool. I read lots of positive opinions about this program on the Internet forum www.blender.pl, so I decided to try.
My first impression of this program was “Wow, it is really good, very handy and intuitive”.
I like the fact that Krita is free and being updated and added to all the time, It’s a great and professional tool to create comic strips.
Krita is already a really good computer program. Some errors and crashes appears from time to time but with every new version it’s getting better. I think that tools to create animation could be a great novelty. I’m looking forward to the next version of Krita.
I can already do most of my work with Krita. I use other programs occasionally because some of them have useful options for processing drawings and photos.
I mainly used draft pencils and draft brushes which turn out to be my favourite tools in Krita.

Thank you for inviting me. I hope that Krita will acquire more and more users because it is worth it, keep it up 🙂
