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.

A release for those who love patterns and gradients, Krita 4.4.0 has a ton of new fill layer goodness like screen-tones, scriptable fill layers with seexpr, and pattern transformation, as well as a lot of gradient goodness in the form of gradients that dynamically change with the fore or background color changing as well as gradient maps for brushes and textures. The latter set allows for creating brushes that do the following in a single stroke:

Select the PNG format when typing in the file name, then in the pop-up window where you can select the compression levels make sure "store alpha channel(transparency)" is ticked.

Today i went to Krita Forum to check my topic. It was in the morning and the Forum was working - i could get useful answers. But some time later i faced the fact that i can't access the Forum - only Developers blog and Bug Report work.

What's the matter?
