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:…

If just discovered Krita some days ago and I instantly fell in love with this awesome program! I'm really looking forward to use it in my next paintings.

Btw, my 1st test of Krita turned out to be one of my favorite pieces...I just couldn't stop working on it.

I was looking long time for a good substitute for expensive Photoshop and only Krita met my expectations perfectly. This software is awesome and I'm really happy to see that it's updated so often. Keep up the great work Krita Team :-)

WOW! I just installed 2.8 for windows and I'm so psyched! The GUI and tools look great at first glance. I can't wait to  sit down with a good chunk of time and get acquainted. I was waiting a long time for  a windows build. THANK YOU
