The book giveaway is over. You can check out who won here.
Digital Painting with Krita 2.9 has been released and what better way to celebrate than having a book giveaway!
I have spent the past year writing and compiling information on how Krita works. There are wiki articles and YouTube videos, but many of them are old and incomplete. I thought it would be helpful to have a single author that could focus on writing. Someone that can explain all of the latest features that Krita offers from end-to-end. I have packed as many tips, explanations, and shortcuts as I could learn.
Check out the book sales page to learn more about why I wrote this book and what is included.
You can buy the book now on many online retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Search for “Krita” and it should be in the search results.

This giveaway ends at the end of the day on November 4. Because of all the countries and time zones, the deadline will spill over to November 5 for many .
5 people will be chosen at random from the comments. For selecting the winners, I will go through all the comments and have a random number generator pick 5 numbers. I will make a follow-up post stating the winners. The winners will be contacted individually to get their mailing address.
That’s it! Make a comment and wait to hear more.
If you want to check out the book. You can view the table of contents and first two chapters. This PDF is from of the book, so the ebook will not be formatted this way. The ebook is in a ‘reflowable’ format so it will show up well on multiple devices. The formatting isn’t as pretty, but all of the content is still there. The table of contents has a pretty good overview of the topics that are covered. The book is available in ebook ($9.99) and print format ($39.99). These are retail prices, so you will probably find it cheaper depending on what site you visit.
Side Note: I have to manually approve the comments (which I do in bulk). If your comment doesn’t show up immediately, it just means that I haven’t clicked the approve button yet. It will be ok!
Update 11/3/2015: If you decide to pick this up on Amazon, it is a DRM-Free ebook. Every distributor works differently, but at least Amaazon gave me the choice to decide. I just updated the description on the ebook product page. A few people have also expressed interest in a PDF version of the ebook. The EPUB version was made so it works better on more devices like smart phones and e-ink readers. I know it doesn’t look as pretty as the samples, but that is a compromise I had to make when using the EPUB format.
