I think Merveilles must be having an influence on me.

New Plasma theme & colours:

I wanted to try out using @GIMP as I would Photoshop / Affinity Photo, so I figured following along with an image manipulation tutorial would be a good way to do it. I followed the pumpkin head video from Benny Productions (great channel) and I think it turned out pretty well!

There were no steps I couldn't find a way to recreate in Gimp - some replacements were a little slower, and some were an upgrade. Got pretty laggy, but still got the job done!

Damn I love Plasma! Been using it a couple years now and I STILL regularly keep finding cool new features!

Just discovered the seamlessly integrated git client in Dolphin.

Yes! DaVinci Resolve on , working flawlessly. Despite it being easier to install Manjaro fresh rather than switching to Nvidia with non-free drivers, after that it was effortless. It's now easier to install Resolve on Manjaro than on deb based as the AUR install just works out of the box.

Now I don't need a second Linux or Windows for Resolve work, I'm one major step towards leaving Windows behind, and no more leaving my daily driver just for video editing. Wanted this for ages!

Hey all, here's the repo with the colored icons I showed yesterday for or image editors.

codeberg.org/FreedCreative/Col

There are instructions for where to copy the icon folders to depending on which image editing application you're using.

Instructions are for Linux, but on other platforms you should be able to look in preferences and see where your icon themes are located, then copy the custom theme into that location.

Someone on the birdsite had the idea of applying flat colors to their tool icons in order to group them. I followed suit and I really love the result!

And btw, I absolutely love that I have the freedom to make adjustments like this. Good luck changing a single thing about Photoshop.

New icon / logo for Freed Creative, my personal project to help creative professionals and hobbyists do more of their work on .

Made in . What do you think?

Just completed and shared an all shooter made in , meant to be a simple project others can use to help learn the engine.

Also includes , and source files.

@luxpris @flip I did it! First project finally finished and moved into the "Finished" column.

I left this so long that I lost the original source graphics, which I'd wanted to share, so made new ones and turned it from asteroids into shooting little slimes.

I'll make another post with the details.

1 down, 37 to go

First in a set of 16 items I'm making, and also part of our finally finish something drive.

The project I am finishing already had a sword, but I ended up turning it into something else to work better with the rest of the set.

Decided to use even though Aseprite has more pixel oriented tools because I really want to use / as much as I can. Looking forward to using Pixelorama when it supports HiDPI.

Holy wow, no matter how much time I spend on I keep finding new ways to customise it even further. I did not know until just now that you can download extra services to expand the functionality of Dolphin. What an incredible DE.

@luxpris @flip I decided to go ahead and get started because I just went through and organised all my unfinished projects using Notion.

38 of them. 😐

Seeing it all in one place and realising how much stuff I could have finished by now is a really good start to getting me focused.

This is a test of a pixel art creation method I wanted to try in Krita. It's sort of a blend of painterly techniques and pixel art, so a "hi-bit" style I suppose you would say.

I actually really enjoyed this process. It felt like the most enjoyable elements of both styles of drawing. I think I'll carry on and try some more using this approach.
