MyPaint is an application that is designed for digital painters. This application allows you to easily create sketches and artistic drawings on your computer.

MyPaint is a fairly simple app to use; there are no complicated menus and the user interface is designed in a rather simple and straightforward way. This ultimately allows you to place your complete focus on the canvas you are working on without having any distractions get in your way.

The variety of brushes that you can choose from on MyPaint is another great feature that makes this application stand out. These brushes are all organized in different categories so that selecting one for your current task is simple and easy. You also have the option to configure your brush to the size that is needed for the task you are working on. Each brush that you can choose will have a different effect on the computer screen. Among many others, some of the styles that you can select include watercolor, charcoal, oil painting and marker.

MyPaint can be used with a mouse on a standard computer. However, for the best results, it is advised that you use a graphic tablet. These tablets are able to detect a wide range of pressure levels, making them more ideal than a standard computer.

MyPaint is an exceptional image editor that ultimately allows you to create drawings and sketches in a simple way. It is great for those that have an artistic side and a vivid imagination.
