I downloaded this a while back and never really found it usable, but had high hopes it would improve so i downloaded the new version. Hopes realized! It's a pretty amazing update and they improved the interface and brushes quite a bit! I haven't gone through ti all yet, but i think my next drawing will be on this and see how it goes.

    For me the masked (stacked) brushes are the one thing I missed in the previous version. And the multi-threaded brushes really give Krita an enormous speed boost. I experience no lagging, nothing. With my Wacom I don't even need to touch the keyboard anymore. The right-mouse click widget take care of that.

     

    I am very impressed with this release.

    I use Sketchbook pro, the standalone version which will never be updated so you are forced to get a subscription, which I will not do - so it won't work forever and this might be a good replacement.

    It's amazing such a great drawing program is free.

     

    So many great things.  Drawing was a little slow at time so the multi thread thing looks great.  The height to normal could be particularly useful for 3d artists here.

     

    The link on this page that is supposed to go to download krita brings me back to this page.
