My name is Jóhann Örn Geirdal and I am a professional artist and a fine art gallery supervisor. I’m from Iceland and currently living in the Reykjavik city area.
I paint digital fine art professionally and it’s definitely my hobby as well.
Everything that gets the job done.
The most important artists to me are Erro, Android Jones, Francis Bacon and Miro.
Back in 2000 I went to a multimedia school to learn to make digital art. Since then I have switched completely to digital media from traditional media.
Definitely the high level of experimentation and it’s a lot cleaner.
It was through the Blender community. The artist David Revoy introduced it.
I did not fall in love with it but it was interesting enough to explore more. Now I can’t go back.
It is simply the best digital art software on the market.
I think it’s on the right track. Just keep going.
It’s the fast development and that the developers are definitely listening to the artists who use it. That is not always the case with other software.
I use a lot of custom brushes but I also use default Krita brushes and brushes from other artists.
My website is http://www.geirdal.is. There you can see my current work.
I like to thank everyone who has made Krita possible and this amazing!
