It would take a long time to describe all of the topics we will be covering in this course in a short text. For example, here are some of the first sections in the Krita basic to advanced digital painting course where you will learn.

The basics of computer graphics are outlined here, such as the differences between raster and vector graphics, color models, bit depths, etc. In the last part of the presentation, I will explain how to set up drawing tablets to get optimal results and make Krita run more smoothly. This Krita basic to advanced digital painting course requires a drawing tablet for students to get the most out of Krita.

After a brief introduction to Krita, we’ll dive into its basic features. You will learn how to operate the brushes, how to customize the user interface, how to navigate the canvas, and how to use the document tool. We will next investigate color, including how to choose colors and how to choose colors from a range already present. The following section examines layer properties like alpha inheritance, opacity, blending modes, and group layers. The use of layers makes it possible to create complex artwork quickly and easily. Next, we will discuss the selection. We’ll then look at how Krita can be customized for a quicker digital painting workflow. We will also explore shading principles while drawing a skull illustration in part two of the workshop. We will be practicing more advanced techniques and strategies after we finish the skull project by creating the tree illustration from scratch up to the final depiction. By using this process, you will be able to produce a number of different variations of artwork from a single artwork quickly. This kind of flexibility is critical for industries like gaming, for example, which operate at a high pace.

So, JOIN NOW! And start creating masterpieces with Krita! See you on the other side.


I will add more lessons progressively to cover these topics -in sha Allah-:
