Could you tell us something about yourself?

Hi, my name is Chayse Goodall. I am 14 years old. I just draw for fun!

Do you paint professionally, as a hobby artist, or both?

I do animate and draw for a hobby. My artwork improves little by little, but I don't think it'll be good enough for a profession!

What genre(s) do you work in?

I don't know what my style is, but people tell me that I have an anime style.

Whose work inspires you most -- who are your role models as an artist?

I have many inspirers, two of which was my art teachers, and one of which was my math tutor. They both motivate me to keep going with my progress.

How and when did you get to try digital painting for the first time?

I tried digital art in 2015. I only had a phone at the time, so it was hard at first. It's a million times better now, and I have a touch screen computer, so I've been trying different art programs!

What makes you choose digital over traditional painting?

There are more tools, and there is an undo button!

How did you find out about Krita?

I was looking up free art programs, and stumbled across this program.

What was your first impression?

My experience was great! It was easy to follow once you get the hang of it!

What do you love about Krita?

All the brushes and how easy it is to save.

What do you think needs improvement in Krita? Is there anything that really annoys you?

It is a bit confusing and it looks complex to newcomers.

What sets Krita apart from the other tools that you use?

It has amazing features and it doesn't require me to "sign up" or pay for anything!

If you had to pick one favourite of all your work done in Krita so far, what would it be, and why?

I only made one picture. She doesn't have a name, she was just a test character to see how good the program was. (It came out great!)

What techniques and brushes did you use in it?

I normally draw the sketch first in a dark red color. Then I draw the plain body in a light green. I sketch the clothes, hair, and accessories on in a neon color.

I just use the pen for coloring and shading.

Where can people see more of your work?
