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.

Also, how exactly does one put brushes in their favorites group?

I've tried clicking and dragging but that didn't do anything...and well having to go through all the brushes for the one I want is just a bit inefficient. Assistance please?(I'm on Windows by the way)

Pardon me, I was wondering if the Huion h610pro was compatible with the program MyPaint? As I am really contemplating purchasing a new tablet and don't want to scrounge for a new program. Please and thank you.

i just got my paint and i have been looking up tutorials, but i cannot figure out how to change the names of the layers. could someone please tell me how? :thanks:

To change the name of the layers you need to double click onto the actual layer that you've added probably a double or tribble?

Mine does it on double, hope this helps! ~

hm I see the linux version had a major update, and I cant find the pop out window for brush settings, was it entirely replaced by the big dialogue window?
