Welcome to my course Get Started Digital Painting with Krita. This course is targeted at beginners and covers everything you need to know to create beautiful digital graphics.

In order to get this product you need a free Udemy account. If you buy this product I will send you a free coupon for the following course.

This is not a drawing / painting course. Although the course is supplemented with the occasional drawing / painting tips, the focus of this course is on learning the Krita software.

Krita is a highly acclaimed digital painting software, and it is completely free and open source. If you want to get started in digital illustration without splurging on license fees then this is a great place to start. Once you have gained confidence digital painting you can easily and painlessly switch over to commercial software if you want. (Or you can continue using Krita of course!)

About Paul Gieske

Hi there! My name is Paul. I am an IT teacher and an engineer, and I love creating digital 'art' as a hobby, including vector art, digital painting and animation. I love combining my technical and ...creative sides in many ways: - Combining my teaching and my creative side I love creating video tutorials. Why not check out my Youtube channel for some examples? - Now that I've been developing my creative side for I while I feel ready to start creating online learning resources! - My dream on the long run is to create a video game. I have some pretty killer ideas! Hopefully your skills will come in handy to help me fulfil some of the above! Hopefully I can help you out too. I currently live in Dhaka. So if you live close by and are interesting in meeting up, why not send me a message?show more
