MyPaint. Making Brushes on MyPaint
« on: May 14, 2011, 10:53:57 AM »

Do you want to make oyur own brushes and also be able to understand how the brush editor works? then continue reading. This Tutorial was made due the lack of info on how to make brushes in a easy way, so i decided to make my own for all the people who want to investigate a little more. and here it is, now translated to English

English  DOWNLOAD PDF here.

The community is a so good source of knowledge...

Now the tutorial english translation is complete and online. BIG thanks to

    Alberto Enrique Chávez Guatemala.He made a huge work translating all the contents text and images texts.

    Sam Hutchinson has done also a good work translating the text. so i can compare the 2 odt files and choice the better for the final english release. that saves lot of time.

Thanks again for posting this up!  This is a very valuable resource... :)

One thing i did notice is that Mypaint doesn't seem to use any kind of "stamp" brush like in GIMP, but rather it takes one uniform shape and deforms it into limitless possibilities.  Just thought I'd bring that up to confirm, as this is good in a way as far as painting fidelity goes (and in another way this sorta dampens my plans a little).  ^^;

I don't know how big the MyPaint scene is in Sweden, but I'm geeky enough to tackle the brush creation process and translate it into Swedish. Is the English translation almost exact representation of the original text? I do not know Spanish at all, and can't refer to it for clarification, if needed. It would affect the quality of the final Swedish result, being a translation of a translation.
