I don’t know how to answer that. I have always painted, I don’t consider it a hobby, but not a job either. Sometimes it’s paid, and most of the time it
isn’t. But I always enjoy drawing.
My first experience with digital painting was 4 years ago, more or less. At the beginning it was strange for me, but immediately I saw the benefits of
digital color. Although I still use traditional techniques for drawing, the color is 100% digital.
I can’t choose only one, both have their advantages that are irreplaceable, so I choose both.
When I left Windows I started to look for free and open source alternatives for the software that I had been using. Whenever there is a FOSS alternative I will choose it. I think that is necessary to support this kind of projects.
No, I have never worked in one, but I try to support the projects that are interesting for me.
By accident. I was looking for an image editor and I decided to try Krita; then I realized that it was so much better for drawing and digital painting.
I liked it so much. It seemed to me so fluid, intuitive, and funny for improvisation. In fact, the best things I’ve made until now with Krita were
That it is an intuitive program, and the huge variety of brushes and styles.
Until now I haven’t seen anything that needs improvement in my little time of using Krita, but I suppose that support for more formats would be good.
In my case, I wanted a good program for drawing, coloring and also a program that allows image editing. Moreover, that it was open source. And I didn’t find anything better than Krita.
