Welcome to Section 1 of my course Essentials of Digital Illustrations with Krita.
This section is absolutely free, but it consists of only the first section of the course.
This section is targeted at the complete beginner and covers taking the first steps in digital illustration.
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!)

- Get started creating simple doodles

Teacher and Engineer
Hi, my name is Paul and I am an IT teacher and an engineer. As a teacher / engineer I can combine my strong technical background with the experience I gained in passing on skills and knowledge to my students.
As a teacher I believe that it students learn better when they are learning actively. That's why I include a lot of practice exercises in my courses.
In addition to teaching and engineering, as a hobby I am enthusiastic about illustrating and 3D modeling.
This is pretty basic, and the paintings of the teacher do not look good, sorry...
I like his spirit, and yeah it's the basics of krita, so i like it
Si, porque aprendí los atajos que tiene Krita y algunos trucos que siempre viene bien saber.
Good introduction to Krita and to digital creation in general
The course is good to get a short overview of some tools, methods and commands for drawing and painting with Krita. The teacher shows some techniques by doing some exercises from the scratch and also gives tipps and advices for i.e. keeping you motivated. As a free course, it is OK for anyone knowing nothing about Krita.
I have been wanting to work on krita for so long and the coarse is really easy to understand but starting is a bit slow
you are great
I am glad to learn the basics of Krita.
