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:…
Hey folks, sorry to those who have had art sit and sit only to expire recently. I look after approvals and had a family issue to deal with. I'm back now and will keep on top of submissions once more.

Any reason why the list of contributors shown on this page does not reflect the actual contributors ( or have I miss understood what a contributor is?)

The other thing I was interested in was what criteria is used to define featured art, is it a group vote thing or just one individuals personal preference?

The list was there when I took over, so I have no idea :P I pick stuff to feature on occasion. I try to pick a diverse range of things I feel show krita's potential.

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!!!!!!!
