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.

Mypaint turned my cursor into a smiley XD. That is a funny glitch.  I tried taking a screenshot but it shows up normal when I do hrm. So here is a cell phone picture of my screen.  1113141824 by Lady-Dragonrose  1113141823 by Lady-Dragonrose   Pretty sure it has something to do with the fact that I was trying the mirror feature out and was resizing my brush.

So are we ever gonna hear any news on a new MyPaint package from anyone, ever?

The mypaint team is currently working on version 1.2.
If you're talking about a windows version: I'm not sure about that.

Sorry I forgot to specify: but yeah, I was talking about a windows version.
I would try looking on tumagonx's blog for updates, but the comments section on his MyPaint blog post is so crowded that it won't load comments past March 2014.

Excuse me, I seem to be having problems with the layers. I don't know if it's an update or anything, but I haven't downloaded anything lately so I don't know about that. My problem is something like this, I have my sketch layer underneath my linework layer (The linework is on Multiply). I click on my sketch and the linework disappears, I click on the linework again and it comes back. And then when I finish linearting and I go to make my sketch's opacity 0, not just my sketch but also my lineart disappears. It's also like only the current layer and the layers under it appear if I'm working on a layer. It doesn't show layers above it. This only happened today, I don't remember if I did something funny. The last time I used it, it wasn't like this. Someone help ;A;

There's an option in MyPaint where if you press the "home" button on your keyboard, it will show the layer you're currently working on. Are you sure the "home" button isn't pressed?

Ah, thank you for replying. I'll go check later.

Hi, I wrote a tutorial on how to run linux version of mypaint as a windows application, would anyone care to take a look? It's not the final version, so it might not work at the first time, but if there are any problems I'll provide all necessary support.…

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)
