Loving "Krita": painting my Mushroom Village project

This is my second adventure doing a proper digital painting. I prefer to focus on traditional painting, but when going digital, at least for now, I still like to do a hand drawing, take a photo of it and paint in some software that I like.
Last time I used GIMP, which is pretty much like a free and very professional alternative to Photoshop.
Now I am trying Krita. Also a free digital painting software, but with no focus on photomanipulation (like the many tools you have in Photoshop or GIMP), only painting. I am just falling in love with it! Flows very nicely and it really felt closer to a traditional painting style.
I am continuing an illustration that I couldn't finish for the mushroom village contest, and it is becoming a small personal project by itself. I am developing some of the characters and scenarios on the side. This is so far the most complete scene I am developing. It is still a WIP and I will continue painting it.

@diego_biosteam This looks really interesting. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I may have to try out that program too. I am curious how the process works.
This is how the progress is going. I still have a lot that I want to work on the painting. Already took me about 12 hours (but spread over a few days).
@diego_biosteam looking good
Finally finished this piece!

Yay! Love it! It's magical, and I love the play of the cool vs warm lighting and how you've separated them so distinctly.
I am glad you liked it!
It was an idea me and my wife had. Creatures living in two different worlds, but somehow connected.
Woah man, that rocks!!! It's looking great!
Interesting color pallette and the concept is inviting as well. You can base a whole book on that one illustration.
@tianlian Wow!!! Thanks! Yeah, as I was planning this illustration I did other sketches of the main character (the furry one catching the light). May be turning it into some story!
