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 krita.org/component/content/ar… , or you can get Krita, for free, right now on Linux (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at Krita.org krita.org See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here: forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=…

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.

I'm just a random person that was checking on the group to submit something, but yes, there are many ways to do this with Krita. Here's a tutorial on one of those ways.

Although personally, I filter the noise out, turn the white to Alpha, and color underneath in a new layer. Most ways to turn sketches to inks require a little post cleaning. Krita has nice brushes to make those touch-ups only take minutes, instead of an afternoon.

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.
