There are so many things we will cover in this course and it will be too long to explain all of them in this short text. But to name a few, here are the things you will learn in the first several sections of this Krita basic to advanced digital painting course.

We will start at zero, which is the general concepts of computer graphics, such as raster and vector, color models, bit depth per channel, etc. Then I will discuss how to make Krita run more smoothly and how to set up drawing tablets for optimal results. In order to get the most out of Krita and to benefit from this Krita basic to an advanced digital painting course, a drawing tablet is necessary.

Next, we’ll go over Krita’s basic features. Learn how to work with documents, customize the user interface, navigate the canvas, and how to use the brush tool. Next, we will learn how to work with color, such as selecting colors and choosing colors from those already present. In the following section, we will examine layers and their different properties of them, such as alpha inheritance, opacity, blending modes, and group layers. These layers enhance the ability to create complex artwork remarkably quickly and easily. The selection will be discussed next. Next, we will explore how to further customize Krita for a faster digital painting workflow. In the second part of the workshop, we will cover basic shading concepts while creating a skull illustration. The next step after we finish the skull project will be to practice more advanced techniques and strategies while we create this tree illustration from scratch up until the final depiction.
