For the second year, next month I’ll run a professional training session about drawing with Krita at ActivDesign in Rennes.
It will take place the week right after the Libre Graphics Meeting, from 7 to 9 April.
It is still possible to register if you’re interested (note: french-speaking session).
Besides, if you want some local personal training about Krita, in French like this time but also in English, you can always contact me directly on my contact page.
Here a little illustration made for the guide to Krita 2.8′s features pdf file, as you must already know 2.8 has been released a few days ago ;.)
Here is the third part of my little comics project “Freestyle Fiction”, of course once again all made from scratch using Krita on linux and a good old intuos3 graphic tablet.
I used the 2.8 development version to keep tracking bugs and to check that my usual workflow was not broken before the 2.8 release (which should happen in a few days now).
If you missed the first parts, go get those first here:
And so the next pages:

If you don’t know about it already, the Libre Graphics Meeting is the most important yearly event for everyone involved in Free and Open Source software related to Graphics, developers and users altogether. This year it will take place from 2-5 April 2014 at University Leipzig.
The Libre Graphics Meeting has always tried to reimburse travel costs of participants actively contributing to the meeting. You can help funding this event with a donation to the Pledgie campaign here.
And so now I’m very happy to can tell you that my workshop proposal for the Libre Graphics Meeting 2014 has been accepted.
It will be a 2 hours workshop about “Creative resources creation and management in Krita”.
I’ll show participants how to create all kinds of creative resources in Krita to customize their tools.
This will cover creation and management of:
It is currently scheduled for Saturday at 10:00.
The program has been published here, and this workshop will actually happen on Thursday April 3rd, from 12h10 to 14h10.
I already announced some time ago the Krita workshop planned during the Capitole du Libre and Akademy-Fr 2013, but here’s a cool update:
David Revoy (aka Deevad) will join me to teach a complete anime-style workflow.
As already planned, I’ll do the part about drawing toon line art and flat coloring, and he will add a part about toony painted background.
Check his blogpost, or just watch this cool result example:
I’ve often been missing an easy way to browse through audio sample files. A few composition software have one embeded, but not all. And sometimes I just want to check a sample pack quickly, without opening a big complete DAW application.
As I was looking for an exercise to practice more QML and remembered this, I started writing this little application: Sample Explorer QML
It is a very simple kind a music player, but with interactions designed specially for one precise use case: to browse through a collection of audio sample files.
You may wonder how it is different from a classic music player, but try to open a collection of drum samples (or other very short samples of this kind) in a playlist and see how it’s not convenient for this purpose..
So unlike a regular music player, it doesn’t play all files in the list, only the selected one.
Also it auto-plays when you select a new file.
Now I can easily browse through big sample folders to quickly find what I need.
And as I thought it might be useful for someone else too, I shared it on gitorious:
I added the QML word in the name as for now it’s a pure QML application, using only core QML types. It was fun to see how far I could go with it, as it already provided all the components I needed for this application.
Maybe later I’ll add some more fancy features by adding some C++ in the mix (like a spectrogram view or other kinds of analyzers..), but for now it already does its main job.
