The Krita donation drive has succeeded beyond the expectations of the Krita developers. Donations from all over the world made it possible to buy two Intuos graphics tablets and two art pens for the Krita developers to test their software with. The Krita developers are very grateful to the community for making this possible. The Intuos tablets and art pens make it possible to develop brushes and tools that make use of advanced features such as tilt and rotation for Krita 2.0.
One tablet is currently with Boudewijn Rempt, who is working on a Chinese paintbrush simulation.
The other tablet is in Sardinia, with Emanuele Tamponi, who is working on the improved second-generation version of his natural colour mixing model and painterly framework with Roberto Baccoli, a Researcher at the University of Cagliari.
The art pens were not in stock at the shop and will arrive later, but now full tilt for Krita!
