Course Description

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

If you never use Krita before and you want to master it fast. Then this course is your best solution. It is designed for complete beginners, so no prior experience needed at all. Or, if you used Photoshop before and you want to move to Krita then this course is for you also. Because in this course I will mention a lot about Photoshop’s comparable features when explaining the features inside Krita. To really gain the maximum benefits of using Krita and to gain benefits from this course, you will need a drawing tablet.

We will cover a lot of things in this course. But we will start from zero, and that is the general computer graphic concepts. After that, we will cover the basic features of Krita. We will then cover basic shading concepts and shading methods while doing a skull illustration project from start to finish. Finally, I will teach you a very versatile non-destructive workflow that will allows you to create many different variations of artworks from a single artwork fast. This is very important in a fast-paced production such as in the game industry for example.

So, join now! and start creating masterpieces with Krita! See you on the other side.
