Knacki, looking at your latest I can't help but be inspired and every one of these has character and style. My personal favorite would be the old man in the goggles but that is because it directly inspires me for Moreorless. I also like the sheer joy in the expression of your middle beauty and the emotion of the dread locked man below her The individualistic aspects of all of them shine. Just pure damn talent :D c:!

Man, Knacki, those are fantastic and the best "Thank You" straight for my heart, really. :hug:
You know, your frustration shows me nothing but love and real care, even when it comes in form of flying daggers, hahaha, but I dare not dodge them, for they mean the world to me, too. I cannot wait to bring my power back to Verve and punch in all the ideas that are piling up for years now. I can't wait to give you something much more magical and also to join back in with actually using Verve and paint! c:!
Seeing your incredible collection there makes me want to paint again, too, so very much! :hyper:
...wonder how rusty I may have become?! :shrug: :oops: ...but well, riding a bike and such.
By the way, I'm also incredibly proud of all of us and what forum we are creating here together. It's all about moving forward for each of us and our journey into such an important part within us and how to share it. I love that with all my heart, even as it hurts when I can't participate as much as I would love to. But that time shall come again!
Again: :hug: and :bow:

Holy cows - that GaryOldman thing is crazy-good :o
We all know that verve at its core is fluid dynamics engine, and yet this portrait/face work shows how good verve is at handling border/threshold conditions of primary functionality, non-fluidity.
Especially if in right hands. The new ones look as if they are almost 90-100% chalk, pencil academic drawings 8-)
Knacki has cracked the verve "nut".
I also stand behind phrase thrown here - verve (and way how it works) is basically the only thing why i want to paint and draw something digitally, ...something of a full, more or less detailed image and not just quick storyboard small size concept picture. I happen to use Krita also here and there for one,two lasting hobby art projects, for their really quick, small, raw sketches. Its .... okay, mainly. But what i found is that when i want the whole ride to be enjoyed, whole image creation process, then it is absolutely clear at that moments why verve shortcut is on my desktop always and forever, exactly two clicks away.

Taron, what specifically is scaring you in idea of transferring code to C++? It's that famous manual garbage collecting thing or something even more lethal potentially?
Wasn't that Stroustrup himself said something along the lines that with C its easy to shoot yourself in the foot, and C++ makes it harder to do that, but if you do it will "shoot" your whole leg away?
It's that thing?

Wrong thread for that, but what scares me most is the redistributables or runtime libraries and all that jazz. I have a hard time getting comfortable with those for some reason. :shrug:

Thank you guys, for everything. A discussion about verve dev is most welcome.
Unfortunately I can’t contribute much regarding C+.
But I can answer your last question intars.
The pencil look is mainly achieved by background texture. These pics are not done in verve but on ipads Infinite painter which gives you the possibility to define a texture for your brush and for you canvas.
This is a combination of same texture in brush and background.

The texture calculation of Infinite Painter is not as sophisticated as in verve. It’s more a revealing, no real interaction. But with a lot back and forth it can feel quite well.
For erasing i.e. I used an inverted texture.

All this is included in verves interaction with canvas already. I am quite sure, with some testing and correct texture it would look and feel even more realistic in verve.
It’s just that desktop computer / office time is working time for me now a-days.
Drawing dun is on ipad anywhere else.
Yeah, and sure, those progs have some more functions. But what I would say is missing most of the time is select and transform (scale rotate) and a one click liquify. Ar least for me.

Ha! As soon as one opens verve, one is entering a complete different space of creativity. No app is like verve and whenever I start, I just fall in love again.

Today, there was a request in Procreate forum to add canvas spinning. Phhh. Verve is the only app alowwing real magic and generating wonderful pics in seconds.

Ahahaha, :lol: Knacki in a great mood again, that's awesome! :hyper:
How you were doing this to yourself, I don't know, but especially the last one came out fantastic! c:!
...just make sure you don't listen to any bad suggestions while working on those! :? :lol: :twisted:
