The best way to get started is to hack on something. If, for instance, you'd 
like to work on a spectral colorspace (let's say, 20 or so sampled frequency 
bands (if that's the right word)), then that should be very possible. A fun 
thing to do is a dynamic brush plugin -- one that takes input from several 
parameters and does proper brush hair deformation modelling. There are lots 
of papers around about both issues; and it should be fairly straightforward 
to hack an implementation that works in Krita. Getting it optimized is
