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.

Hello. Can you help me? I've recently run into a problem which I believe is linked to Krita. When using my graphics tablet after drawing in Krita with it for about twent to thirty minutes the brush randomly turns to the ink dropper and won't turn back, the express key commands mix up and wort of all my laptop keyboard stops working until I restart the computer.

I believe the problem is related to Krita because I found a Reddit user with the exact same Problem as me…

The difference is while they use a Wacom tablet I use an XP Pen Artist 16 which is what's convinced me Krita is the source of the problem. Is there anything you can suggest that would fix the matter please?

Thank you for listening

Hi, I'm wondering what are the rules to get to submit works to your gallery, am I missing some rules?

Yes see last paragraph here:…
And here: Tagging your work with #krita

Also you submitted yours to the Featured Folder, which needs at least 3 approvals by people that moderate the queue.

I was wondering the same thing so thank you for the info. Considering two failed attepts, maybe this time will be successful.

By the way, I checked link to step-by-step converting instructions but it doesn't seem to work (404 error).

If you want to share it on deviantart you need to save it as png or jpeg.
