MyPaint is a free and open-source raster graphics editor for digital painters with a focus on painting rather than image manipulation or post processing. MyPaint is available for Microsoft Windows, OS X and Linux.

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.
