Krita basic to advanced digital painting

Krita is a graphics application comparable to Photoshop, Gimp, CorelPainter, etc. But unlike Photoshop, Krita is an open source project, so anyone can use Krita without paying anything for the software license. Krita was built from the ground up as a digital painting software foremost. That’s why if you want to create a drawing or an illustration, Krita will make you feel right at home.

If you’ve never used Krita before and want to master it quickly. Then this course is your best solution. It is designed for complete beginners, so no experience is necessary. Or, if you’ve used Photoshop before and want to switch to Krita, this course is for you too. Because in this course, I will be talking a lot about the comparable features of Photoshop when explaining the features of Krita.

There are so many things that we will cover in this course and it will take too long to explain them all in this short text. But to name a few, here’s what you’ll learn in the first sections of this course.

We’ll start from scratch, and these are the general computer graphics concepts such as the difference between raster and vector, color models, bit depth per channel, etc. Next, I will explain how to make Krita more fluid and how to set up drawing tablets for the best result. So yes, you will need a drawing tablet to really get the most out of using Krita and to reap the benefits of this course.

After that, we will cover the basic functionality of Krita. From how to work with documents, customize the user interface, navigate the canvas, and then learn to use the brush tool. Then we will learn how to work with color, such as selecting the color and choosing the color from the existing colors. After that we will learn more about the layer and the different properties of the layer such as alpha inheritance, opacity, blend modes, group layer, etc. These layer features are essential in making creating complex artwork much easier and manageable. Then we will discuss the selection. And after that, we’ll learn how to customize Krita even more for a faster digital painting workflow. Next, we’ll cover basic shading concepts and shading methods while doing a skull illustration project from start to finish. After the skull project, we will learn more advanced techniques and strategies while doing a hands-on project of creating this tree on a hill illustration, from sketch to final illustration. I will teach you a very versatile non-destructive workflow that will allow you to quickly create many variations of artwork from a single artwork. This is very important in fast paced production like in the gaming industry for example.
