Krita 5.0 - How to create a short animated GIF in Krita - Step by Step

Hello everyone. Happy New Year.

Today, I am going to show you how to create an extremely simple Gif Animation in Krita.
This is for people who have never done animations before.
So, this project is extremely simple.
For this project, I created a 1500 x 1500 canvas with a resolution of 72ppi
In the next tutorial, I will show you how to paint/color your animation + some other tips.
I hope you enjoy this new tutorial.

PS. I am an amateur animator. Please feel free to watch better (aka professional) animators for in-depth tutorials.
