Krita is too different for me. I've used Photoshop, Medibang and FireAplaca and it's just not the same. If any of you like Krita props to you but I just don't like how Krita is. People usually go for Krita because its a PS alternative but honestly i wouldn't use it even if I didn't have PS
I chose Medibang over Krita. Krita is confusing and has too many features that blows my mind. It crashes on my computer despite my computer having the minimum requirements for that app.
I did try to change the layout as the organization like I did on sai (colours on upper left, layers on the right), but it's still confusing. I did the same on Medibang but I ended up doing well. I deleted Krita because of the complex stuffs.
I used Krita for like 4 years already but never learned anything from it.
I'm pretty sure krita mimics photoshop in its UI. Having used that before I never had any trouble getting used to krita and in some ways I even prefer it to PS. The downside is that most other programs aren't much like either of them, so people who haven't used either one before can find it confusing.
Not sure why you would find line art harder though. Maybe you're using a stabiliser setting unlike what you had in CSP? The ones aside from 'basic' have some configuration options you could mess with.
Yeah. I have heard people use firealpaca too, which is free. I have never used it myself though.
I liked a lot of things about GIMP, but it really can be overwhelming at first. I would spend time just messing around in it. The "path" tools were my favorite to use before I got my first tablet, and even then I used them because my line art was so shaky. It just took me a long time to get used to it. I would recommend looking up tutorial videos as well if you get frustrated.
Krita does have its ups and downs. I only use it for animating, everything else is paint tool sai because the interface is a lot better. For me, the main thing I don't like about Krita is the amount of brushes... do I really need an eraser brush? I know some people like having a lot of options, but I'm the opposite. I could never get the hang of painting in there, either. But for animation it's definitely one of the best free programs out there. In terms of crashing, are you up-to-date with the program? I remember earlier builds would crash for me, but nowadays it rarely crashes.
I used medibang on my tablet quite much years ago. But I have never try it on computer with my tablet before. To me krita was "functional" my current laptop can run it without any crash. It's just that it is too alien. It is hard to learn and takes too much time to memorize it.
I was trying to learn it through its manual and videos but honestly none of them made it less alien for me.
yeah I'm lazy I have been using 3d paint and not even bothered with a new program to learn to doodle with. these programs come and go, and some updates are a nightmare to the CPU. not even eclipse is safe...
