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 bugfixes, amongst others the resource manager now somwhat works, so you can create and load bundles!

Happy to be part of this group^_^ I also use Gimp and Mypaint. Starting to like Krita. Guys does anyone of you know how to compile the latest version of Krita to work on Ubuntu 10.04 or how to have pressure sensitivity in krita 2.2?

... You may want to consider updating your version for Ubuntu. That version of ubuntu is so old I couldn't possibly help you.

I'll just save for a new laptop maybe. I've tried updating it, the downside was that newer versions won't see my graphic card correctlyT_T So I reverted back to 10.04 where I can use it for 3D apps...

This program sounds AMAZING!  I will definitely try it, thank you so much!  I've been searching for something new for a very long time it seems.

This is quite literally the best free to use Paint tool out there. I come from a photo shop and corel back ground, and I can honestly say that this program has never crashed on me, and the amount of freedom you have with it is amazing. I know professional concept artist that have made the switch to krita from photo shop. Freaking love this program.

Happy to find this. As a photographer and recently wanted to get into learning Digital drawing & painting. Picked up a Huion H610 Graphics Tablet & Installed Krita on my Win7 side as already have it installed on my Linux side tho not working with my tablet yet.

Don't know if it will fly but started a Flickr group for others of like mind to meet and share.…
As has discussion groups and have started a couple with links to tutorials,etc... It may not take off. But thought to give it a go and see what happens.

As liking how I can do more artistic endeavors on my Images. As well as start learning to draw and paint my way to new ways of seeing and expressing myself.

As other Krita Artist I see here quite talented and gifted in their artistic talents. And gives me something to strive for.
