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:……

Many many many bugfixes in this one, check out the link for the full list!

I've been amazed at the ease of use with Krita on my Wacom. The stock brushes are the closest thing I've found to actually drawing with graphite or ink. have been drawing in it quite a bit lately and really enjoy it.

When I got my Wacom tablet, the programs that I was able to use were buggy and didn't allow me to use much freedom (like for one i only had one layer.) I looked everywhere online to find a reliable Art application. I don't remember exactly how I stumbled upon Krita but I know I'm glad that I had. Plus downloading Gimp and Mypaint kinda destroyed my pc... hehehe...
