If you are interested in Krita, you probably did not miss boud’s article about the state of Krita. It also hit dot. Maybe you have read that I will work on brushes in my thesis, and this is what is going on in this blog post. My work will cover potato stamping engines, hairy brush engines, particle brush engine and maybe some other, that I plan to discover
So far I choose and implemented Dynabrush from Paul Haeberli. Pieces of this brush is in Inkscape already as Calligraphy Tool. Next target is Paul’s Impressionist and I have found some articles about improvements of his Impressionist. From Hairy Brushes, I would like to recover Hairy Brush by Stressman and make improvements mainly to my Google Summer Of Code project – sumi-e brush in Krita. I would like also improve Krita’s Airbrush and Smudge. I did deform brush and there is enough space for improvements in it too.
Inspiration and really nice work is done in apps that boud mentioned in his presentation in Libre Graphics Meeting 2008.
Have you got favorite 2D digital brush engine? Let me know in comments.
