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.
Now, I have two links for you:…

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:

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:…

Hi folks. I want to remind you that if you submit something to our gallery. Please mention krita somewhere (description, a Tag, title) to show us or me that it was done with krita. Otherwise your image would expire in the queue and we move to the next submissions.

Thank you o/

Hey Krita people, I wanted to throw a little compliment out there for you. I've tried many different art programs from paint, paint tool sai, photoshop, basically you name it, and still so far, Krtia comes out on top. This is by far one of my most favorite to use programs that is very easy to use and very fluid as well. I've been using it for over two years now to do almost all of my work, and it has yet to fail me in any aspect. This program is virtually perfect for anyone who is looking for a great program to use for creating and editing their art work, and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great and free program.
