Krita workshop at LGM 2013

image data/images/blog/2013/03/lgm-2013-header.jpg

It will be my first LGM !  I hope to meet a lot of you around this event and have good time :-)

The theme :

The workshop will be about digital painting with Krita.
I'll adapt my workshop to my audience, but my main guideline will be "speedpainting with Krita : tips and tricks to refine your process."
And the idea I have in head is to build a symmetry portrait as the one I painted on my previous post here , step by step. I think its a good exercice for beginner or experienced artists, accessible and also very fast rewarding : Krita paint literally  half of the artwork for you.

Place / Date / Hour

Friday 12 april 2013 at the Libre Graphic Meeting in Medialab Prado‘s brand new building in Madrid city center.
Workshop will happen between 14h30 - 16h30 ( duration 2h ) in RoomC
