  • Conclusion

    Overall when it comes to looking for free animation software Krita is one of the best on the web. The software provides an amazing free alternative to other pay-to-use software with its easy to use features and a variety of tools. The only issue comes witht he 2nd application, buts easy to set up and takes no trouble at all. I’d recommend Krita to anyone new to or currently looking for animation software.
