Krita 2.9 Tutorial #1. Getting Started

The bare minimum you should need to get started drawing, painting, sketching, and doodling with Krita!

This stuff should be useful for any Krita noob regardless of your setup, however I am using Krita 2.9.2 with a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet on Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon =D

The most common problem folks have at the start is a problem getting the canvas to appear when using MS Windows; sometimes it's just a black screen, or you can't paint on it, or it crashes, or something similar. Usually Turning off OpenGL will solve this problem: Settings * Configure Krita * Display * untick OpenGL.

Main topics:
- Mapping a tablet with dual monitors
- Left handed tablet users
- Changing colors, brushes, and brush size
- Erasing
- Zooming and panning
