Skillshare Class Coming Soon!

I have a Skillshare class coming up in a couple of days. It will be available from this link.

It’s my first online class, I had a pretty difficult time trying to convey my thoughts one-way, since most of my teaching experiences have been in front of a bunch of students. I’m used to interacting and bouncing off student participation more than I am at monologuing.

I am also deathly awkward and tense in these videos. Yikes.

Let me know what you think of my first class (email me at [email protected])

If you think you or one of your friends might like this class, please feel free to share the link :

Duppy Bird Available on Amazon!

Hi guys! I just want to share some awesome news: I illustrated a
horror comic for the anthology Tales of Astoundment, mine was Duppy
Bird. I’m excited to announce it has finally been published by Markosia (link to official announcement here)!

The volume is out now and available on a whole lot of
online platforms (for the international crowd) and stores near you (US
and UK)! (Amazon link here)

You can also choose to buy the individual issues on Comixology too :D


I’m late to the comics game, but being a comic book artist was the
whole reason I decided to take the plunge freelancing full time 4 years
ago. I still have a long way to go, and loads of things to learn, but my
dream is SLOWLY but surely coming true <3


Pressure Sensitivity with Krita - SOLVED


I recently bought a new laptop and reinstalled all my previous
programs. I had a bit of trouble with Photoshop and Manga Studio, but
there are a multitude of threads already dedicated to solving those. I
wanted to contribute to the open community of Krita (which is by the way
completely FREE to download and use – I’ll probably write a review
later.)

After poring through multiple forums on KDE, I was finally able to
solve my pressure sensitivity problems through the help of user
‘timotimo’ on this thread.

The problem:

  • Pressure sensitivity works everywhere else except on Krita
  • I can’t find the settings for fixing pressure sensitivity anywhere!

This solution works if you have:

  • updated drivers on your Windows computer
  • updated drivers on your tablet
  • an actual pen tablet with pressure sensitivity
  • the latest version of Krita

My solution has worked for both my Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (Windows
8) and my laptop running Windows 10. My tablet is a Wacom Intuos Pro.

STEPS!

1. Make sure all your drivers are updated – check your tablet desktop client and your windows updates

2. Make sure your tablet connection works. (mine was working fine on other programs)

3. Open Krita

4. On the toolbar, mouse over to ‘Settings > Configure toolbars… >



5. Make sure that mainToolBar <Krita> is selected in ‘Toolbar:’


6. Scroll down and look for ‘Pressure Usage (small button)’ in the list

7. Highlight/select it

8. Click the right arrow button


9. Click ‘Apply’ and then ‘OK


10. IMPORTANT! Go to ‘Settings’

11. Scroll to ‘Tool Bars Shown’ (this is below ‘configure toolbars’)

12. You will see two options: ‘File’ and ‘Brushes and Stuff’


13. Make sure there is a check mark next to “File”

14. You will have 4 new buttons show up (see attached)


15. ????

16. PROFIT!

17. WOOHOO! Now draw!
