Here is an abstract cluster of information!
I didn’t know until now that at the end of Twilight Time, there’s an exterior shot of the treehouse with all of Spike’s nachos in the trash
Anonymous asked: Is there anything mypaint has that sai doesn't and viceversa?
MyPaint has incredible brush customization. With SAI, you have to dig around with the files to make custom brushes and it’s quite annoying. This is the brush editor on MyPaint:
Each bold setting has about 8-10 properties, most properties have the little […] button with even more options. There are so many ways to customized brushes and it’s made very easy. That alone proved really useful to me, although there are already a ton of built-in brushes (shown is just one package):
MyPaint also boasts an ‘endless canvas’. There are no edges, you just draw however much you want and it cuts it off automatically when you want to export the image.
The two are similar in the fact that they’re lightweight and geared specifically towards rasterized digital painting (as opposed to vector artwork, photo editing, etc.) They also have a clean UI, although only one side of the screen is dockable in MyPaint; I liked how you can dock to both the right and left on SAI
SAI has better layer options for grouping, clipping, and blending modes. In MyPaint, layers are just sequential, and the blending modes are limited:
SAI also has the selection/wand tool and transformation, none of which exist on MyPaint. It has some texture/effect options too, but they’re limited and I almost never personally use them. Oh and another annoying feature with MyPaint is that its undo function can undo several actions at once, if they were done in a quick succession
Keep in mind though, that SAI IS a paid software, and if I ever transcend the need to use selection/transformation tools I would stick with MyPaint
istisp asked: You probably already know these programs, but I know you're a recent Linux-user, so if you plan on drawing on Linux, I can recommand you Gimp (Photoshop-like, you've certainly heard of it), Krita (PaintTool-like, haven't really got the opportunity to try it a lot but I like it so far) and GNU Paint (looks more like Windows' Paint than MyPaint, don't know which one is better though). Also, I don't know what tablet you use and if you use one, but if you have a Wacom, odds are it'll be compatible.
- GIMP: already used it on Windows. I do my text editing, animation, and designing on GIMP but I can’t paint on it that easily.
- Krtia: used it, and I think the UI is awfully cluttered. I think I heard of a Steam version, but I’m not actually sure what the differences are.
- GNU Paint: used it as well, isn’t it basically an MS Paint port? I mean, I do use MS Paint from time to time, but not as a main drawing application.
I’ve started to configure MyPaint and I realize it’s actually very, very good. The brush customization is fantastic. If it had selection and transformation tools, it would swiftly replace Paint Tool SAI (without them, it’s still a pretty solid painting application). Plus, it’s free, whereas SAI isn’t. As far as Linux drawing programs go, MyPaint does the job.
Also yeah! I’m really glad that Wacom tablets work right off the bat for Linux, Linux in general has saved me from pulling out a lot of hair
I found this text generator site Corporate Ipsum and it never occurred to me how much I’m annoyed by entrepreneurial-talk.
