This week, the Krita team releases version 2.4 of their application. Krita is an open source 2D painting application with some very special features. Like support for Blender OpenEXR files, HDR painting and much more. Krita was used by David Revoy for the concept art and story boarding of Mango.

With many powerful brush engines and unique features as canvas rotation, multi-hand and mirrored painting, Krita explicitly supports creating concept art, storyboards, textures, matte paintings and illustrations. Krita is primarily a Linux application, but a very experimental Windows version is also available as part of the Calligra Suite of applications. The Windows version does not support HDR painting.

As bad luck has it, Krita's website was hacked the week before our release. Usually, more information can be found at krita.org.
