Here is my entry :smile:

What a great challenge! I had never used the mirror tool before.

Everything was done in mirror mode. Brushes are mainly Basic-5 Size Opacity, Muses Texture Snow and my favourite gentle blender, Wojtryb6 N 23 Blur.

This challenge was so much fun, I did a second one. Other than a few added highlights, I did everything using the mirror tool and various chalk brushes.


Change cats to pigs :slight_smile:



My entry, the Temple of the Holy Sausage :slight_smile:

It was not easy to found how to manage light and shadow from a symmetric drawing, then I decided that the golden giant sausage illuminate the scenery (simple problem, simple solution)



demon mask drawing practice



am i the first horizontally mirrored so far?

Is it just me, or does everything that’s horizontally mirrored look like a landscape?


Created a couple submissions! Both a bit sci-fi themed with ships. In the second image I used some photo-bashing in the background and mirrored it, but feel free to rule it out. :slight_smile:


I figured I’d utilize some fo the brushes I’ve been messing about, making lately in this.
The Mirror tool is fun to work in.


She’s not perfect but it’s my first Krita piece, thanks for posting the challenge, it really helped me get used to Krita :))


Time for a Chai break, or a Coffee break! I think everyone should take some well deserved breaks and enjoy a nice hot cuppa! I used the Mirror tool for almost everything except the figure and anatomy shading.


I did another mirrored one, not sure if this “counts” as officially a mirror since my shadows, and highlights were not mirrored.
But everything else is mirrored. Doing faces mirrored, is a challenge, you can lose some of who they are, imperfections and characteristics from one side of a face will not match the other.
Anyways, I doodled this while watching Danny Trejo in a film… hehe
