No. Krita needs only kdebase.

Here is the list of packages fetched by Krita Lime when installed on vanilla Ubuntu Trusty with Unity desktop environment. As you see there is only 300MiB of deps, including KDE and Krita itself with all the resources (brushes and stuff).

painter@painter-VirtualBox:~$ sudo sudo apt-get install krita-testing
