Is this the final red pill?
>>633169Swap gimp with Krita, and you actually have fine a toolset.
Gimp and inkscape are fucking dogshit
>>633169As red as the tears of blood you'll cry ten years from now, once you realize what you've done to your life.
>>633202any free alternatives to inkscape?
Blender and Inkscape are great, so is Krita.Get the FUCK out with Gimp though.
>>633169Even at my poorest and desperate levels of needing software. I would proudly go to jail or get fined for pirating photoshop over gimp. Fuck gimp.
>>633230I know you are not serious, but is there an add-on for exporting svg renders or something?
>>633222Krita has vector tools. But to be honest I haven't tried it yet so I don't know how good they are.
kritas stabilization feels weird to me. I use some of its tools but I never actually draw in it. you're better off cracking clip studio
>>633229On the contrary I just went back to gimp because photoshop is missing so much basic shit that gimp can do. All I want to fucking do is drag multiple UV maps onto the canvas, you literally do that with gimp.
>>633272>photoshop is missing so much basic shit that gimp can dolol what exactly do you mean?
>>633170Can confirm this anon is correct. I switched from GIMP to Krita and am having much more fun in my life.
>>633169I was blendpilled until I started uni today and was told that we'd be exclusively using maya, 3DS etc. so now I am probably going to turn into one of those industry standard shills you see all over this board.
>>633279Congratulations Anon, you are slowly becoming part of the multi-program master race. Don't fight it, embrace it.
>>633169the final pleb-tier open source crapware that will lead you nowhere.
is blender easy to use?
>>635075Blender is easy to use once you know how to use blender. The ui isn't intuitive, but it is powerful and customizable. Learning to us it is like switching from a Mac to a linux.
Why does everyone hate Gimp so much?Its UI is a bit of a mess, but it's a good tool if you know how to operate it.
>>635075Compared to Zbrush - it's god tier in usability. In general it's unconventional but very consistent and built with a certain phylosophy that you can get used to and it becomes intuitive.
>>635127actually I know a guy who customized the shit outta gimp, arranged the UI and uses it for dogotal art, refuses to use anything else.
>>633287>multi-programDo people actually think when someone uses Blender, they don't use anything else in the pipeline?Blender is muh only non-industry standard tool I use, and I use it exclusively for what it is great for - modelling.
>>635237Actually yes. You have no idea how many people i had to nudge slightly so that they even consider using something like Substance Painter or Fusion instead of Blender.But i didn't meant pipeline tools when i spoke of multi-program master race. I am talking about people who know more than one 3D DCC and ideally know more than one 3d discipline. I started with C4d, then started learning Max, hated it, went to XSI, Autodesk autodesk'd XSI so i learned Maya. Went back to C4d, felt trapped in it, learned Blender. Now i am learning Houdini (very slowly). I can work with nearly all of them but i prefer Maya, Blender and Houdini.
>>635272That seems to be the problem for a lot of people here. They all see these other programs but get stuck into thinking one is better than the others and the shitposting does not help in the slightest since it confuses most that need to learn different programs. Honestly, this is the worst place to learn from or even be. So many mixed messages and under the guise of anonymity, no wonder this conversation still exists.
download Partha's gimp, has all the nice stuff installed in it by default
I can afford the yearly adobe sub with my minimum wage hourly job.What kills me is the fact that I incorporate 3D heavily into my graphic design & that $190/month autodesk wants is brutal.So yes to blender, but fuck those other two programs. If I can afford them, so can you.
>>635363>that $190/month autodesk wants is brutal.That's what Houdini Indie is for. My best $400 ever spent.
>>633169>cant do proper circles like Paintfuck off stallman
>>633202just like Blender
>>633169Gimp is good for fucking with photography and making effects and shit. Krita is great for painting and drawing and shit.
every 2D tool is miles behind photoshop
>>633169This is the reddest pill, the #ff0000pill
>>635451What program is the last icon from?
>>635508pxtone, by the Cave story guy
>>633170GIMP is garbage but Krita isnt great. If you accidentally hit a button near the top that duplicates the window, Krita freezes and crashes before you get a chance to saveand its really easy to accidentally click that button
>>635237>Sculpt in ZBrush>Retopology in Blender with Retopoflow>Texture/bake in SubstanceIf you think this pipeline isn't the shit never talk to me again.
>>635752It's pretty shit alright
>>635752Did you bought Retopoflow or got an free version from the web? I've got an older one which is kinda buggy. I am using Maya for Retopo which is good enough for me.
>>635759I'm using the free version from Github. Updated to 2.0. Try 2.0 if you ever get a chance, it's absolutely wonderful to use. Helps that it basically overrides Blender's garbage UI with its own.
>>633169>Gimping yourself with gimp Blender + Krita is a damn good combo. I love clip too though and photoshop.
>>633169Swap gimp with krita.
>>633169Im am the gimp for 10 years. Both physically and on pc
>>635127>be me>download gimp>its free>youtube tutorials>git gud.99% of wedding pics and shit are just tracing and replacing anyway.>get this drunk cunt out of the way>edit this anon out of the picture. Hes a cunt>muh red eyes>get rid of this giant zit>fix my toothless brother in law
>>638199Imagine taking this trash hole of a website so seriously, you try to greentext and still make gimp seem like trash and contribute to nothing on this thread
>>637313kirta is great for painting but GIMP has better photo editing stuff
>gimpI think I'll just stick to pirating photoshop like I have done for the last 20 years
>>633169Paint.net is much better than gimp. With gimp you're literally gimping your art.>>633202This
>>635602Hot keys for saving should be an involuntary reflex. I can't tell you how many times I've lost progress on any project from any software(maya, 3ds, quixel, photoshop, AE, etc..)Always make iterations/separate saves in case one project file becomes corrupted because Maya decided to take a dump all over your progress.
>>633169post the work you have done on blender and gimp then we can talk.
>>638626no, post the work you have done with your """"industry standard'''''' software and then... THEN we'll talk, BITCH.
>>638832What's the need? You just have to go to the nearest cinema and watch the latest blockbuster to know what """""""industry standard""""""" software is capable of. For Blender, you can just go to... I dunno, the """""""Blender Artists""""""" forum? Yeah, go there and you'll see too what Blender is capable of.
>>638832How about you neck yourself, poorfag
>>633169>gimpHow can anyone use this garbage over Photoshop?
>>633169If by red pill you mean Ibuprofen. Cause this setup's shitty interface induces massive damage to the brain.
>>639380liver. ibuprofen causes damage to the liver.holy fuck why don't 3d artists understand biology. its like one of the most essential things to understand about working with 3d.
The ultimate redpill is mastering every software and using different ones for different purposes.
>>635451What is that first icon?
>>639542godot game engine
