MyPaint 2.0.1-alpha

MyPaint is a nimble, distraction-free, and easy tool for digital painters. It supports graphics tablets made by Wacom, and many similar devices. Its brush engine is versatile and configurable, and it provides useful, productive tools. The standard brushes can emulate traditional media like charcoal, pencils, ink, or paint. But you don’t have to limit yourself to just the standard ones. It’s easy to make expressive, artful new brushes that don’t respond like anything conventional. Fullscreen mode declutters the interface, leaving you with just your brush and your creativity. You can still reveal the tools you want, when you need them. This distraction-free approach means you can focus better on the art you make, not the tool you make it with. MyPaint has simplicity, yet it gives you all the tools you need to create great artwork. Many notable artists use MyPaint, including digital illustrator and concept artist David Revoy. You’ll find growing MyPaint user communities on DeviantArt and Tumblr. MyPaint comes from the Linux art world, but it has Mac OS X and Windows ports too. Now anyone can pick up MyPaint and draw to their heart’s content

Recent Releases

2.0.1-alpha25 Feb 2020 14:45 minor feature: Linear compositing and spectral blending (pigment). Layer views. Brush strokes dependent on view rotation and view zoom. Additional symmetry modes: vertical, vertical+horizontal, rotational, snowflake. Expanded flood fill functionality: offset, feather, gap detection and more. New brush settings: offsets, gridmap, additional smudge settings, posterize, pigment. New brush inputs: barrel rotation, base radius, zoom level, gridmap x/y, direction 360, attack angle. Full Python3 support (Python2 still supported). Tons of style consistency updates (flake8). Switch to PyGI. New ability to simplify nodes in Inking tool. New ability to delete autosaves from recovery dialog. Improved user messages. Scratchpad no longer scrolls on size changes. Integrated reporting w. template. Use external libmypaint ( = 1.5). Most (possibly all) IO uses context managers. Layer manipulability dependent on visibility. Brush description shown in tooltip in quick choice dialog. AppImage builds added. Move build to setuptools/distutils. New keyboard shortcuts/defaults. New symmetry modes (vertical, vert+horz, rotational, snowflake). Flatpak support added (currently not functional?). Maximum input mapping curve points increased to 64. Curve editor points snaps on 0.5 increments. Input curve reset button clears the graph. New Import Layers feature. Zoom and view-rotation-dependent painting. New decommand: Vacuum Empty Tiles. Progress feedback for loading/saving. New Layer Properties dialog. New separate H/C/Y pickers. Per-document settings.
