Krita is a free digital painting program. You may have heard of it. I personally recommand you to use Krita
. If you put stock in my opinion, you'll hear this call.
I have been dissapointed by every other digital drawing programs in the past. God knows I was never impressed by any of them and always kept a cool head. But this one impresses me a great deal and I really believe it is the best choice for hobbysists and professionals alike.
Why don't I use it? Well the only issues right now is that it is not polished and have frame rate drops while working with big files, which you'll do if you work on an illustration or a comic page.
That's when the Krita Fundraiser.
comes in! They need this extra money to remove bugs and add the very last features needed! I am so happy about this!You get to vote on what needs to be improved!
I use Photoshop myself, but it's because I'm so used to it. This is what was used at school and at my last working places. I work easily with it.
I actually don't particulary recommand it to young artists, except if you want to have a job in the industry, because recruters tends to ask that. They are just anxious about programs they don't know but there is no real reason to stick to Photoshop. Plus it is very expensive.
If Krita is useable with big files, like many other professionals, I'll go with it in the future. So I donated.
So if you like to draw, you'll need to check it out!
If you don't take my word for it, go read the developpers's words.
For you and for all of us, I strongly believe we need to support Krita.
Have a nice day!
