Krita pullshapes v2.0, almost here


Using the chemistry theme as the brushes come from Alchemy., but I’m not sure they are clear at all. A little help on the design is welcomed.As for the brush “pack”. This time I changed how pullshapes are presented.
– All presets use by default all shapes. (No more a preset for brush)
– Each .kpp preset varies on how the shapes are delivered. So far I have 3:

  1.   Normal: Pressure changes size and Opacity
  2.   Declination: Declination changes size, pressure Opacity
  3.   No opacity: Pressure only changes Size.

– Spacing or “rate” of shapes is controlled by speed and scattering.

I haven’t released them yet. As there comes a new addition to this brush set and needs some documentation: The Maker

The maker is a script to transform svg shapes to gih brush ready to load in krita/gimp. It’s not fool proof as it needs the svg to be saved in a certain way. But, with some familiarity it’s possible to create a new set in less than 5 minutes. (An ugly set to be honest)

The files I have so far ready for testing can be reviewed here:


Krita Pull Shapes Brushes v1.

Ever since I saw the Chaos and Evolution’s preview videos I was captivated by how Alchemy was used by David Revoy. Specially I liked a lot the Pull Shapes feature combined with the Alchemy vector brush. Today I use Krita for a lot of my sketching and developing of ideas. I still use the Alchemy brush (thanks to Lukas for the nice addition) but the Pull shapes was left behind. After reading this post from Lukas T. Blog I was inspired to try to “get” that feature in one way or another.
[ Desde que vi los adelantos del DVD “Chaos and Evolutions” me cautivó la manera en la que David Revoy usaba Alchemy. Espcialmente me llamó la atención el uso de la caracterísitca “Pull Shapes” combinada con el pincel de placas. Hoy día uso Krita para la gran mayoría de mi bocetaje y desarrollo de ideas. Todavía uso el pincel Alchemy (gracias a Lukas T por incluirlo en Krita), pero “Pull shapes” se quedó detrás. Después de leer esta entrada del blog de Lukas T. me vino la idea de adaptar la función de alguna manera. ]

Two characters made with care.

Or more precisely, with more time. Made just for the fun and also with the intention to test a couple of brushes Im setting up. [O más precisamente, con más tiempo. Hechas por diversión creativa y con el objetivo de probar unos pinceles que estoy armando]
