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.

For the 4.0 release.

The Krita Developers and editors are looking for your artwork to feature it on the Release Page for Krita 4.0.

So sent your work to and how you want to be credited.

There are some rules of course:

Hmmm no biggie but submitted my work 7 days ago no show here.
Seen 3 updates with images submitted to group but not mine?
Wondering if something I'm doing wrong?


Nevermind checked back now image says "Expired" Whatever that means?

Possible that you submitted yours to "featured" which means it needs 3 votes by the group owner or contributors.

You need to provide more details about this. Is it not available in the package repositories?

I know that one, it was submitted to the group too. It's very well done. :)

:love: I started with MS Paint, then flash, then SAI, then MyPaint, I'll soon use Krita and SAI (I'm not using right sai now because I'm trying to get it and my tablet working on Ubuntu)
