The new Wildersoul Colouring Book blog header image could do with some constructive criticism. What do you think? I am thinking of adding a gradient as a layer on top of the existing picture. Maybe I could try some alternative images and play around with it a bit. I am using Krita, which is beautiful open source software and I love it. It is a learning curve, and after using Inkscape vector graphics mainly in black and white for the last couple of years, it is really exciting to be working in colour. I love painting, and digital painting is so much cleaner than splashing about with delicious house paints or oils on hardboard. And much quicker than priming with layers of gesso before making a start on the creative flow. I am so pleased that after acquiring new hardware, and a download of a new driver, my tablet pen has stopped misbehaving and works as good as new. (Thank you Mr. Wildersoul!)
Blog design is different to painting a canvas to be hung on a wall. The size changes depending on what device the blog is viewed from. Definitely a lot of learning to be done. Thankfully Krita comes with a standard web design template which gives a bit of a basis to start from.
Branding and marketing is fun, and also requires some learning. Modern logos really need a way to fit inside both a circle and a square. They also need to be clearly visible at a small size for use as an avatar. My new logo may need a white symbol on top of the rainbow splash, rather than the current black. Any suggestions?
