I often use MyPaint for postwork on my 3d renders. Is that a usage you would be interested in including?

is an interesting question. i have to talk with the other admins. because your case is not unique. we have requests of people who use mypaint to photoretouch wich i think is not the best use of mypaint but is possible.same with images done with gimp+mypaint, wich is the maximum percentage of gimp? we have to discuss. thanks for your interest.stay tuned

Thanks for saying so! And I definitely can imagine others in a similar position. Postwork on 3d is often very different than photo-retouching, but can be similar in some ways. The thing to keep in mind is that finishing images, both photos and renders, often involves doing a fair amount of painting hair, skin, and clothing. As much as I would _love_ a fan brush in MyPaint, or a way to give brushes specific shapes in general, what I typically do in postwork is painting. Photoshop has some really great painting tools, but MyPaint is specifically designed for painting. The real trick is rendering large enough.

I completely understand if that kind of work doesn't have enough MyPaint use to fit the goals of your group. I just thought it might be cool to show how it can be used in different ways.

One think I often use is make a base mesh to study proportions and composition in Blender, then I do a clay render or even a wireframe and paint over it inside Mypaint... It helps in some extent to keep structure and shape, then work out the colors and shading/lighting, hope it helps.
