What is Krita?

Krita is a free and open source, KDE program for sketching and painting, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters.

Fields of painting that Krita explicitly supports are concept art, creation of comics and textures for rendering.

Modelled on existing real-world painting materials and workflows, Krita supports creative working by getting out of the way and with snappy response.

Windows users can download an early testing alpha version right now at this… , or you can get Krita, for free, right now on Linux (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here:…
And here is our new Facebook page:……

This fixes slow brushes, adds toggle for on canvas notifications and attempts to fix G'Mic crashes.

Please also consider turning on openGL in settings->configure Krita->display.

If that results in a black canvas, and you have an intel GPU, update your video card drivers!

I thought there was going to be a way you could animate with the new update. Was that idea scrapped in the end or are they still working on it/is it hidden somewhere in the program? I really like Krita and would love it if it had that kind of feature so everything could stay in one place

I am downloading Krita! Taking a little bit to download though. It sounds like a really cool, FUN APP TO USE!!! I would love to get better at Digital Painting anyways. Learn how to blend in with the colors and how to draw like the pros on the computer. Also I am just joining the group as well. I bet Krita will be a sweet APP TO USE! IT LOOKS SO COOL!!!!!!!

For me Krita the best in character/manga/comic creation with rulers and canvas rotating(which Photoshop can't into, lol). It replace proprietary Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop brilliantly when i move to Linux 2 years ago. And i don't have any regret for this move. Krita have the soul (look at Kiki!) and more comfortable in many ways to use. Waiting for next stable version)

I am very thankful to Community! I very appreciate you do! You are Real Heroes for me in this corporate spoiled world! ;)
