WHAT IS DIGITAL PAINTING & KRITA?
Digital painting is painting using a drawing tablet that is connected to a pc and drawing on this tablet using a stylus.
You use a drawing/painting program such as Krita to create digital artwork. It is very similar to traditional painting fundamentally with a few unique aspects such as ‘blending’.
Krita is a free open source digital painting software. It's used primarily for digital painting and animation.
It contains digital brushes that mimic and replicate traditional media when you create brush strokes, by drawing on a graphics tablet.
