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.

I sue Krita and love it, still learning all the cool features but it is without doubt the best thing I have ever used for creating artwork

I have a question ;; 

So, when i take an image like a lineart for example, into Krita, like i open it from my files, and i try to use the layers to color it, it doesnt work! :( 

I can't use linearts at all in Krita. Can someone help me?

Thanks. - Maddy

Is your lineart maybe a vector file? And you try to use a brush on it? Can you add new layers to your opened image?

As a reminder if you submit something: Add #krita as a tag to it. Or mention it somewhere. We had to many people in the past bombing your queue with paintings that were not done with krita at all.

It just prevents additions to the gallery that were in bulk submitting by some guys. Who just submit it to as many groups as possible. You can add the krita tag to yours and submit it again and I'll approve it.

Can you be more specific? Do you have trouble with the brush editor or installing new brushes?
