New Krita Facebook Group


Douglas E Knapp has started a Facebook group where Krita users can meet, share Krita work and participate in challenges.


I just started a new Facebook group that is dedicated to Krita, a free and open source 2d art program. Krita does raster as well as vector art . The program is used by a lot of big artists. We have at least one that is posting krita works based on the Daily Drawing Challenge.

A lot of work for the Blender 3d Open films have been done with this program. I invite you to join the group! This program is in many ways like PS but it is much more focus on art.

I also wanted to let those of you that saw this before know that the group is exceeding my wildest dreams and growing fast! See you there!

Our group is dedicated to fostering creatives that want to use Krita. So please come and ask questions or post your work or WIP. We would love to see what you have made. Also anyone that wants to post a tut or whatever is also welcome.

So all you creatives please come and share your ideas, techniques and artwork with our group!


PS, I have no profit motives at this point.

  1. I don't understand why people use _gated communities_ to organize around open source software?!

    We want to have everyone participate in an open and free community! Unfortunately, some prefer to choose exactly those closed and gated communities which are often opposed by open source community, really strange. Open source is not only about getting software for "free/gratis"... Open source is also about an open participation in community work. Those who care about software freedom often aren't using gated communities. So, why using those closed networks to organize around Krita?

    Instead use Diaspora* -
    or Twister -
    or Friendica -
    or ... or ...

    Don't get me wrong, I don't criticize the overall effort. I just say "use open source/communities to promote open source".

    • I do get your perspective on the matter, but more than anything in life, I'm certainly a proponent for freedom in options in life.

      This is just another option, available but subject to the organizer's own purposes for the site. But there are already open groups in some places devoted to open-source software, and even a few for Krita users (such as on DeviantArt and Google+).

      At the bottom of it all, free and open-source software is generally about offering free and open-sourced software that's free for any use. Even private ones. You're free to establish an open community, but you're also free to establish a closed group, as well. And surely, there are benefits and justifiable reasons behind both.

      Open communities encourage open participation and unhindered access to fellows. Closed communities can be an effective way to keep certain level of quality about a place (say, for instance, if you were organizing a group for professionals only, or wanted to protect your group from petty instigators--or any number of reasons).

      There are times where open communities work best, and times where an organizer may want a little more quality control. Though, just because it's currently a closed group, doesn't mean it's not open to joining. Or you aren't just free to start your own open group, which is pretty easy nowadays. ;)
