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.

I just wanted to tell you guys that an awesome new build of Mypaint for windows has just been released by Tumagonx. You can find it here:… Please test it and report any problems. I am on Win7 64 and have tested with a Wacom Bamboo and an Intuos 5, with no problems. Happy Mypainting! ;)

I would like make a complex painting. but i don't know how.

i hope you're familiar with painting in general. If yes, there are some tutorials and processes there that should help you to understand the tools (layers especially, that are something closely tied to computer graphics)

Excuse me, I was just using MyPaint just yesterday however today it just refuses to open and run. I click it and the wheel spins for loading but then nothing happens...what do I do?(this is on windows 8.1 by the way)

Which version of MyPaint are you using? Is it MyPaint 1.0?

Okay, try using MyPaint 1.1. MyPaint 1.0 won't open on Windows 8 (for whatever reason...)

-Make sure you either have WinRAR or 7-Zip installed first

Go to this website:…

-Download the March 21st build of MyPaint, it's the best version that's not as buggy as the others.

-When you've finished downloading it, right click on the file you downloaded and extract it using WinRAR or 7-zip.

-Go in the extracted folder, and right click the "MyPaint.exe" icon and click "send to desktop" to create a shortcut.

-Double-click the shortcut and test to see if it works.
(If you have tablet issues, let me know and I'll help you out with that too)
