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.
And here is our new Facebook page

If you are having trouble uploading krita made images, check this tutorial for a step-by-step for converting your image to a nice deviantart-ready png or jpg.

If you have any other questions, the best place to ask them is

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.
We've released Krita 4.2.6, which fixes a lot of crashes we've found.

This is the first version where we had a beta testing and surveying section, and this did indeed get us information about scary regressions, so we'll be doing that more often!

Hola! ............... soy nuevo, quiero descargar el manual de krita 4.2 para leerlo sin conexión, pero cuando presiono el enlace para descargar el .epub me envía a un extraña página llena de letras que no entiendo y la descarga no comienza. Por favor, ¿alguien puede ayudarme a resolver esto? (Lo siento por mi ingles)

Having a hard time doing human hair.  Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial they've found or suggest a particular Krita brush they use?

Hi. I created some of Krita brushpacks. The most of them are wierd. But probably they'll be in use for somebody. I need money to renew my OS (Krita is breakable with my Window 7) - even a dollar will help me.
