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.

You can download Krita for free (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at
The documentation is online at and includes introduction guides and tutorials.
See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here:…
And here is our new Facebook page:…

If you are having trouble uploading krita made images, check this link for a step-by-step for converting your image to a nice deviantart-ready png or jpg…

We only accept images that had Krita used in making them. When submitting images to this group, be sure to tag it with Krita or mention Krita in the description, so that we can verify that.
So, we've managed to get our kickstarter goal, and the survey response has been so high we can say that these are the final results:…

Also news on development, features, and more.

We're also going to compile an artbook this year:…

Hey all~

With the latest update to 3.0, has anyone elses' onion skins not working at all?
TheraHedwig Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016  Student General Artist
Yes, this is a bug that crawled in at the last moment: Basically, the onion skins are off by default. You need to go to the docker, and click the areas named [-2] [-1] [1] [2], these are toggles for the onion skin. Also make sure to set the tint to 50% or so.

Hello! I have a question to ask; it is not about the group itself and more-so about the content made by the community, so I do apologise if I have been asking in the wrong area.

I have seen many fantastic-looking brushes and bundles created by the community but I have yet to come across weather-themed (E.G. Rain and Snow brushes). If anybody knows of bundles that contain weather-themed brushes then please let me know; I would be most appreciative!

Hi! guys,

I done a simple work using Krita, question is do you guys accept photo manipulation work or is it only fully digital artwork?
If in digital work is it acceptable to have the groundwork done in traditional before scanning and then finishing it off with Krita?
Btw I have to use the mouse/keyboard as my wacom is damaged.

Hi Guys! :wave:

I totally love Krita!! Your team is doing a wonderful work! :heart:
Is there a way to add more brushes to it? :flirty:
BloodyWing Featured By Owner May 26, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes you can easily create your own with the brush editor. Or add new ones with the Resource Manager. You can find a nice selection here:
TheraHedwig Featured By Owner May 25, 2016  Student General Artist
Yes, you can make them yourself via the brush settings dropdown(press f5 if you can't find it).

You can also import bundles via the resource manager under settings. Bundles would be downloadable from around the interwebs, we collect links at

In general, check out this page:…
