MyPaint is a fast and easy open-source graphics application for digital painters. It lets you focus on the art instead of the program. You work on your canvas with minimum distractions, bringing up the interface only when you need it.

Take a look at the screenshots to see the program in action before downloading and trying it for yourself!

    * exists for several platforms
    * supports pressure sensitive graphics tablets
    * extensive brush creation and configuration options
    * unlimited canvas (you never have to resize)
    * basic layer support

MyPaint comes with a large brush collection including charcoal and ink to emulate real media, but the highly configurable brush engine allows you to experiment with your own brushes and with not-quite-natural painting. Before beginning it is a good idea to read the quick-start tutorial to see how the program is meant to be used. You can also visit the MyPaint Wiki.

Bug reports and feedback are welcome. You might also want to check out what is under Development.

The Resources page contains some useful resources for getting more help and maybe extra inspiration in your work with MyPaint.

    * The MyPaint Forums are for general discussion, to post your work, exchange tips, suggest features etc.
    * The Wiki is for everyone’s use. There are links to galleries created by users, and links to articles. Some have made mock-ups and suggestions for improving MyPaint in the future. Feel free to add your own contribution!
    * The Bugtracker is to make sure your bug is not forgotten, and to find out if it was already reported.
    * The IRC channel is #mypaint on This is probably the fastest way to get into MyPaint.
    * The Mailing List is also there for discussions. Check the archives.


    * Basic usage
    * Creating new brushes
    * Artistic Tutorials (wiki)
