Create artistic drawings on your PC

MyPaint is a quick, easy-to-use application for digital painters. It enables you to create quick sketches or complex artistic drawings right on your computer.

The best thing about MyPaint is that focuses on simplicity and ease of use. There are no complicated menus and the interface is really simple, almost minimalist. You can concentrate on your canvas and let your inner artist out, without any distractions.

MyPaint includes a wealth of different brushes, conveniently organized in different categories. Plus you can configure each brush to the smallest detail, and also create new categories in a very easy way. Each brush produces a different result on the screen, always trying to emulate the actual material: oil painting, watercolor, charcoal, marker, acrylic, etc.

Though you can use it with a standard mouse, MyPaint is meant to be used with a graphic tablet, as it supports different types of pressure – which contributes a lot to the feeling of realistic painting.

MyPaint is an excellent editor with which you can create great drawings or quick sketches in an easy way.


  • Lots of brushes to choose from
  • Simple interface
  • Support for pressure sensitive graphic tablets


  • Using it with a mouse is not that fun
