From blue sketch to digital in Krita

22 august 2014

artwork by David Revoy
This is a tutorial about the "traditional to digital" topic. You'll see all the step I use for drawing, scanning and cleaning my webcomic Pepper&Carrot
In the first part of the tutorial, I'll show you my choice for sketching, and 'inking' with pencil.
In the second part, we will scan the lines, and clean them in Krita to keep only the pencil artwork.
In the last part, I'll show how to tint the lines, and make them transparent to be ready to receive a full color work later.

Gnome Files thumnailer for ora and kra images

Files (aka Nautilus ) with the theme 'Numix' and 'Global dark theme' on 'Gnome Tweak'

Long story short : I moved to the Gnome 3.10 desktop environment and I enjoy ( I'll blog post more about soon ). But I found the lack of thumbnail support for 80% of my files in 'Files' frustrating. No  *.ora and *.kra thumbnails ?  ( aka Open Raster , and Krita native file format ). Both multi-layered, both open format, both awesome.

A lot of thumbnailer exist over the Internet for 'Files' ; but most are broken : based on gtk2, or older version of Python, or using old Gconf way under Gnome 2. So, I decided to get hand dirty and write my own.  Surprisingly , it worked and if you look at my code, I promise you a good laugh. But it works. So I share.

Download and Install :
All you need  is here :
Scroll down on the link and start by the README file ; I tried to explain all in it.

Notes :
- Works also for Linux Mint 's Cinnamon Nemo file browser.
- Don't forget in preferences to allow thumbnail preview for files larger than 100MB ; those layered files tend to be large.
