I'm a man born in the 70s, self-employed

I don’t have a set style. I like to experiment.
Different drawing call for different approaches.
Having a "set style" may spoil a concept, and prevent it to reach the fullest potential.

I currently have many projects :
:bulletred: A Python game following the Spiritual journey of a Taoist Monk
:bulletred: To put my experience in call centers into a comics series (see…
:bulletred: To improve my skills in Gimp
:bulletred: To improve my skills in Inkscape
:bulletred: To improve my skills in myPaint and Krita
:bulletred: To improve my skills in Manga Studio
:bulletred: and many, many more ...
And in this quest it made sense to join DeviantArt to meet people in order to share experiences, advices ...

:bulletblue: Main website
:bulletblue: facebook

Operating System: LinuxMint
Shell of choice: bash
The learning curve is pretty tough
But I'm sure it will be worth it.

For now this is a list of useful tips I'd like to share :
- change the shortcut for undo to just the letter Z (not cmd+Z) that is a trick I discovered in mypaint and for me it's really time saving
- when using a pen tool, pressing "4" switch the color to black and "6" to transparent so there's no need to switch to the eraser - just press 6 and erase, then 4 and back to inking
- the export function is splendid - the feature to export the entire comics as pdf is really a great time saving tool
- the kabura ink pen is currently my favourite - see… for the settings I use
- Selection tool is great for adding tone - after a tone layer is created it acts like a layer mask, so just add some black(or use white to erase) and this will regenerate the same tone.
- Text tool is great, but a bit tricky - so just type a short text and then modify and add more text using the "text editor" in the Story menu

I would like also to thank :iconmangakaonline: for her support and kind words

Thanks for reading
Have a nice holiday everybody
