I don’t often announce Kickstarter campaigns unless they are specifically about the creation of game development tools but for this one I am making an exception as this project looks high quality, is game developer focused and Krita itself deserves a great deal more exposure. The campaign is called Create Professional 2D Game Art: Krita Video Training and it walks the user through the process of creating 2D art using Krita, a completely free cross platform 2D painting tool. Depending on the level of success with the campaign it will result in tutorials on side view painted style art, isometric view cel shaded art and top down pixel style art if all goals are met. The ultimate outcome will create a course hosted on Udemy.
At the end of the day, there really aren’t a ton of 2D art tutorials available, I can personally only think of a handful, most of which I linked in my getting started in game art guide. There are even less focusing around using Krita itself. Finally, I like the guys art style, so I would like to see this go somewhere.
Anyways, here is the Kickstarter pitch video. If you are looking for 2D art instruction, check it out.
