Hey everybody,

just wanted to let you know that I renamed "Landscape and Still Life" to "Landscape and Inanimate Objects" because we have been getting lots of submissions to this category which actually are paintings of animate - i.e. alive - beings.
(Which is not a problem at all, because we can easily move those paintings to the appropriate folder, but it is a rather tedious task).

So, don't let me further disturb you, go ahead an paint! :)

Links 'n' stuff..

MyPaint is at On the front page, there's links to download the program for both Linux and Windows, as well as links to related projects.

There's a bunch of MyPaint Tutorials on the MyPaint Resources page, and there might be even more on the Wiki or in the Forum.

Also, be sure to checkout Deevad's very cool time-lapse video showing his use of MyPaint.

Works for me - I know that this has been an issue  years ago, so I guess it might just be your configuration/browser/....
Yes, there's a bucket tool in recent development versions, not sure if it's been included in 1.1., but the next release 1.2 is due in some weeks anyway ;)

Are you still accepting submissions?  I've tried submitting something twice now, but it just stays in the "awaiting approval" process for weeks.

We have some free time troubles, sorry. There is not only your work still not accepted, there are many of them
Please someone help! I tried downloading 32 bit two times at first, but it didn't work, so I saw that my PC was 64-bit, and downloaded 64-bits.. So after I went through the installation, MYPAINT opens, but when i click Mp on the desktop, (Desktop is were i  put it.) it would just say Problem with "Shortcut?" The item 'mypaint.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. 

Do you want to delete this shortcut?  And there is a Yes and No button?!? DD:  

And i use a PC, Windows 7 ...

-Go ahead and delete the shortcut if its telling you "problem with shortcut"

-You need to go into the folder you installed MyPaint in (which is probably in "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)") somewhere and look for the "MyPaint.exe" icon

-Right click on that and hover over "Send To" and click "Desktop"

Then try opening it from the desktop and see if it works.
Ty. :D
