What is Krita?

Krita is the only digital painting tool I’m using. It is a free (as in freedom) and open source software. It offers a sophisticated brush system, packs in almost everything that a digital painter needs and is very easy to use.

Krita supports Windows and GNU/Linux. Now the develop team is trying to get Greenlight on Steam, please help them (and thus helps everyone)! Visit Krita on Steam.

Krita’s steam page has a detailed feature list. Here I would like to talk about a few things that I really like about Krita as an artist:

Brush System:

  • Krita’s brush system is fast and smooth. It is optimized for graphics tablets with pressure support.
  • Ruler tool assistance when drawing long curves (something comparable to SAI).
  • It doesn’t draw jigsaws when zoomed out (my nightmare when using Adobe Photoshop).

Command:

Krita has a highly customizable user interface. The interactive design is very intuitive to use. Here is a glimpse:

Basic brush tool operations:

  • Shift + drag = Change brush size
  • Ctrl = temporary color picker
  • Middle button + hover movement = Move canvas
  • Ctrl + Middle button + hover movement up / down = Zoom canvas
  • Shift + Middle button + hover movement around = Rotate canvas

Right click and you get:

  • Color wheel
  • Recently used colors
  • Favorite tool presents

Layer:

  • Supports layer with many mixing method
  • Supports layer group
  • Supports layer mask

Resize:

High quality resize with Lanczos3 filter. It doesn’t produce inferior shrinking result that Adobe Photoshop does sometimes.

GPU Acceleration:

  • GPU accelerated, fast high quality canvas zooming & rotation
  • Realtime mirrored view mode
  • Color management support

Free as in Freedom:

Krita is free (libre) and open source software. Its source codes are publicly available. You can study, modify, and distribute Krita without restriction. You can learn more about Free Software Movement.

David Revoy has been making tutorials and resources for Krita, available on his website. If you are new to Krita, make sure to visit his place for some useful tips and brushes! Please visit David’s website.
