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 have a recurring issue where the tablet pen makes lines out of dots like this:
Is this a pressure sensitivity issue? Can't work with My Paint because of it.

Probably a windows related issue. If you send me a Note with detailed information (MyPaint version, Windows version, Tablet used, Tablet driver, etc) I'll forward it to the devs ;)

where is the magic wand?

There is none. If you need an image manipulation application, try Krita (or GIMP) ;)

I found that the brush Subtle Pencil works pretty well when drawing blood, but it may not be the effect you are looking for.
