TIPS, TESTS, INSIGHTS AROUND DIGITAL PAINTING
#FrescoGIMP
I have accomplished a list of my posts to digital painting with #GIMP, during 2014~15 .
Many posts, are only images with some notes about the in progress about brushes, paint dynamics or some tip to use different tools paint of the GIMP in another way.
I am not sure but, many things in these tests are free insights to use in another applications and not only on GIMP.
Many insights must be credited also to other persons... because are stuff of discussion with +gustavo deveze; +Ľubomír Zabadal; and +Mozart Couto mainly.

I got a chance to interview the amazing portrait photographer Ilya Varivchenko. His body of work is stunning and well worth checking out. Come have a look at some select images and my chat with him!

He's a +RawTherapee user as well! :)

My first attempt to write something about GIMP and their digital painting possibilities.
My idea is to discuss many topics of the digital painting, mainly pictorical techniques, brush modeling and how to build paint dynamics to the our styles and necessities.

City of the ?azzi miei
Preparing a set of my brushes to add as extras on GIMP 2.10.
They are large brushes and some new concept around the Japan Mop brushes.
So, testing the speed performance of brushes on GIMP 2.10 RC1, I did profit of my roughs in the 7000 x 2500 px document.

New UI themes that we started shipping in 2.9.x carried quite a few usability issues around, while providing a vastly more focused look and feel. So while completing GIMP 2.10 for a release later this year, we really wanted to clean them up.

Ville Pätsi stepped up and actually did a complete overhaul of the new default dark theme. This is a work in progress, but there are some good changes visible already: better contrast, readable inactive menu items and so on.

We are also keeping only a light theme, a dark theme, and a system theme for now. We know there is some demand for a neutral grey theme, and hopefully someone will join us in making one based on the new dark theme.

We are also down to just 9 blockers for the final v2.10 release which will happen once we feel the new version is good enough to be kicked out to the masses.

With +gustavo deveze I have a proficient discussion around brushes and paint dynamics on GIMP. This work is an interesting example how to is possible create natural brushstrokes through simple brushes and a good paint dynamic.

While GIMP Motion plug-in by +Jehan Pagès is still a work in progress, here are two new useful animation-related plug-ins by Tomaž Šolc.

Onion layers: provides some convenient shortcuts for switching between frames when making hand-drawn animations.

Link: https://github.com/avian2/gimp-plugin-onion-layers

Animation Creator import: allows you to losslessly import frames from an animation created in Animation Creator (iOS) into GIMP.

Link: https://github.com/avian2/gimp-plugin-ac-import.

Tests Natural Brushes with GIMP 2.10
I am trying to create an optional set to integrate the future default GIMP Brush Set (large brushes). We have many options and a new concept that is solving in a way more efficient the overlapping (apparently is working).
But, here I must define the minimal choices ;-)

Testing Big Brushes
Only to verify the performance with the last GIMP Devel and the big brushes (512 pixels)... using a big format 5000x3500 pixels.
