Krita is an open source painting application designed for illustrators concept artists, illustrators, comic book creators, matte painters and texture artists, and the VFX industry. Krita is used daily by professional artists all over the world, as well as enthousiastic amateurs. Krita offers many common and innovative features to make painting more fun and more productive. There are great brush engines for sketching and painting, stabilizers for freehand inking, assistants for constructing a complex scene, a distraction-free canvas-only mode for painting without bother, clone layers, filter and transform masks for non-destructive editing. You can exchange files with other applications in many different formats. Krita is being developed by an international community of open source enthousiasts who want to make a great digital painting application available as widely as possible. If you buy Krita in the Windows store, you will support the development of Krita directly: currently, two volunteers from the Krita community are sponsored to work full-time on Krita. You will also have the convenience of easy installation on all your Windows devices and automatic updates when a new version is released. You can also get Krita for free from https://www.krita.org/downloads, as traditional setup packages or zip files. There are no functional differences, it's the same application, repackaged as a WIndows Store application by the Krita developers.
Version number: 126.96.36.199
Krita 3.3.0 has two big updates for Windows users! Krita now supports the native Windows Pointer API, which means that you don't need to install the wintab drivers on your Surface Pro or similar devices anymore. And we're now using the ANGLE library to use Direct3D instead of OpenGL when your display driver is known to be buggy. You can override Krita's choice in Configure Krita settings dialog. Krita 3.3.3 has several extra bug fixes and makes Angle/Direct3D the default. For the full list of changes, see https://krita.org/en/item/krita-3-3-0/
