Yesterday was a national holiday for the US and today is our biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday. If you’re planning to spend some money today, consider buying Scott Petrovic’s new book, “Digital Painting With Krita 2.9.” I did for November’s Adobe Offsetting. You can purchase the book in paperback for $35.99 USD or spend as little as $9.99 USD for the Kindle edition.
“Digital Painting With Krita 2.9” is 222 pages of learning about layers, brushes, masking, and brush engines. If you’ve never heard of Krita, it’s free and open source digital painting software that’s beginning to dominate the art community. You can download the first two chapters for free thanks to Krita. It gives you a taste of what to expect from the book.
This pocket- sized resource guide is aimed at beginners and intermediate users, helping new users understand the power behind Krita. Personally, I’m looking forward to learning more about the perspective tools and gleaning better techniques for masking.
The book is endorsed by Krita and they are promoting the sale of the book on their own site. If you choose to purchase the book, make sure you use the links on this blog post or Krita’s page. The links give Krita a few dollars as part of Krita’s participation as an Amazon Associate.
Being someone that uses Photoshop daily, I find this book helpful for explaining Krita’s approach to workflow and tools which may at times be different than Photoshop.
All in all, it’s a well written and designed book that also helps Krita’s development.
Good luck shopping today and happy Black Friday!
