A simple storyboard editor

Happily Ever After

All in all, I enjoyed the experience of creating a storyboard with Krita. The process showed even more potential than I initially had expected. Since Krita offers more drawing tools than LibreOffice, for example, I realized that I could create nice Instructables-like, step-by-step tutorials as Krita storyboards, because I had more options for drawing and annotating the thumbnails than in LibreOffice Impress. This, of course, is an unorthodox usage of Krita, but aren't the best tools the ones that you can use in ways never imagined by their creators?
