This video is going to be for people who never worked with vector images before.
It is a step-by-step tutorial that focuses on all the basic tools and techniques. However, it can also be viewed as a refresher course. Usually in the tool options docker I go through all the buttons. Not this time. I will only show the main ones or the ones that I think beginners will mostly use.
The image I am going to create toward the end (a beetle bug) is extremely simple. This way, any beginner can reproduce it.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Last week’s video triggered some interesting conversations on Krita’s Forum. I was corrected in some areas of the topic and given inputs and advice. To get the PDF file with the corrections and tips, click on this link:
