#2MinuteSketch exercise! Sketch one (or all) of the below #CC0 #ArtReference images, but only give yourself two minutes per image. Then share your results! :D

Art is about practice and repetition, but we don't always have time to work on something for long periods. Being able to steal a couple of minutes here and there to jot something down is invaluable, and the more you do it, the better you'll get at it, which will improve your overall art!

@Curator :) Video of drawing in the next toot. (Krita Recorder in Krita 5 is kinda awesome for this kind of stuff... not perfect, but nothing is perfect in this world...)

#krita #mastoart

@Curator Shame a bit, because some of my shorter figure studies looked better than this one... but I guess I should maybe just practice them more often.

I have actually something perfect (...for me, and remember, nothing is perfect :P ) for figure studies, my own Python plugin - krita-artists.org/t/life-drawi
It gives you one ref image from a folder at a time, counts time and then replaces the image and the canvas with the next one, and at the end makes a pretty collage of all of the sketches.


@tiar @Curator Oh, I discover the plugin only now (I wasn't as much around on KA last year).

A very good idea for training. 👍 I'll test, thanks for sharing.

@davidrevoy @Curator Thanks! I will gladly take any feedback.

I was thinking it could be used for any references, not only figure studies, but I've figured it out after naming the plugin :D

And it's still a bit beta (the GUI might not be fool-proof yet) but the important functionality is there, so I hope you won't get lost. But do remember to create a new document - the plugin just uses the current one, and while it doesn't remove anything, cleaning it up/dividing later might be tedious.
