Open source

MyPaint focuses on offering a large variety of settings for each brush, filter, layer or any other tool that it offers, and as far as I’m able to tell, they seem to work properly. Moreover, an interesting tool that I enjoyed is the Scratchpad. It is a small window that lets you test your brushes after customizing them. If you’re happy with the results, you can proceed to the working area.

Pros:
  • Professionally-built.
  • Open-source program.
  • Comes with an impressive number of tools and settings.
Cons:
  • It randomly stops responding.

  • It has powerful features.
  • It includes a great color palette.
  • It allows layers.
  • It lets you export your drawing in several image formats.
  • It is free.
Cons:
  • It is somewhat difficult to use.
