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:…

Just started using Krita again after taking a break from drawing and 3.0 so far seems great it loads up faster and runs smoothly even if I watch youtube or read something online in the background. Great work with it :)

hello. I wanted to come and ask for some assistance. You see, my program keeps crashing, and it won;t let me create a new image. And it won't let me animate either. I think I may have problems configuring it , or maybe it is something else. Either way, I would deeply appreciate some help or advice to solve the problem.

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.
