    "I have a daughter who loves to do art and create images on her laptop. She started with paint, then moved to gimp and had yet to try adobe. We downloaded Blender for her to try, I cannot believe how much you get in a free program. You and create and animate and the graphics are amazing. This program deserves 10 stars, but 5 will have to do"

    "I like to mess around with painting aps in my spare time, something I've done since I was a kid. Things like MSpaint are bare minimum though and other things like photoshop cost loads of money. So I decided to try out paint 3D and I can't say that I'm not pleased. It actually has a lot of features I didn't think it would have. It's also free so that's a huge plus."

    "Krita is an excellent piece of software that I am glad I decided to give a shot. I've been paying for Photoshop for years and Krita can do everything I needed FREE. I wish I had found this much sooner!"
