About This Class

Krita is a fairly recent painting software that's free to use. Perfect for beginners or anyone that doesn't want to spend hundreds of dollars for Photoshop (or risk their computer with hacked versions). The thing that makes Krita stand out is that despite being freeware, it still contains most (if not all) the features that paid programs have.

Thx so much... As a beginner, beginner this was most helpful. A whole series for Krita would be most welcome.
