I downloaded Krita a while back, haven't had a chance to play around with it. Looked cool in the demo videos I watched though.

Also love the chimp model.

One reason I'm using Krita is that I can paint and save EXR images to use as the color decals...which means they are a 1.0 gamma.

Once again, I am forced to use a "stay alive" post.  I'm still working on texturing and learning Krita.  I've made some progress, but it will take more time to get something I can show.

Are .exr files better for colour maps? I use .png's for just about everything, but I know .Tga is popular too.

Currently, you can work with 16bit float OpenEXR images in A:M.  TGA and PNG images are 8bit, so using OpenEXR images for color or bump/displacement gives you more precision (which I've really noticed in displacement maps), but, depending on the size of image you are rendering, you may not notice that difference.  However, using OpenEXR images for maps makes them 1.0 gamma automatically, so there isn't a need to color correct the maps when working in a linear workflow.  I also render to OpenEXR so that the linear workflow is maintained.  It makes post-processing essentially lossless when you have a final image that is 8bit.

 

Hope that helps, Dan.

Unfortunately, I'll have to use another "stay alive" post for this thread...it's been extremely busy for me this month.  I'm hoping to start getting something done this weekend.

Once again, I have to use a "stay alive" post...I thought I might have something to show, but I've been taking way too long once again.  I'll see if I can iron out my issues.

The chimp still isn't textured and this is my first attempt at a walk cycle.  Any critiques would be appreciated.

I've been doing a bunch of hair experiments over the past couple of weeks...I think I might be able to get what I'm after.

 

In the course of my experiments, I was happy to discover that Colin Freeman's "Hairbrush" (http://www.colins-lo.../hairbrush.html) works in the latest Paint Shop Pro (https://www.paintsho.../paintshop-pro/).  After messing with the trial version, I'm pretty happy with some of the tools in Paint Shop Pro...I used to use it a lot years ago and it's gotten quite a bit better (it can handle 16bit images for one thing).  I may have to get a license for Paint Shop Pro now and add it to GIMP and Krita in my list of tools.

I'm still running experiments that haven't yielded anything that I can show...so, I'll have to use another "stay alive" post here.  I have a lot going on that limits my time to experiment, but I may be able to do more in the coming weeks.

I think I have a solution, but I have to do some trial and error to get it completely worked out, I'm thinking. I generally learn things by pulling every lever to see what they do.
