TestDonkey


May 3rd, 2020

When I was in Indonesia in 2020, I found AWS Indonesian group from Meetup. After decently active in the group, I was asked to give an online talk. For somewhat reason, the word TestDonkey appeared to me as a good name for my test environment.

After setting up the test environment, I am curious if I can somehow create a mascot or logo for TestDonkey. Below is my initial sketch on used notebook.

I showed it to my girlfriend and she said the right one is cuter. Alright! I will try to convert the right one to a graphic. Then I found Krita software. However, I don't have a tablet. That's fine, I thought, I will just import it to Krita and trace it.

I rely heavily on the Bezier tool and Colorize Mask which are super convenient. After few hours trying to figure out how everything works, TestDonkey is done! It was a very fun experience since I'm not a graphic designer.
