Hello everyone, I'm a new user on the forum; but, I have been playing with MyPaint on and off now for a couple of months. I really love this program and I use it for basic concepts. Also, it works well with my computers that contain low processor or RAM speeds. I do have a bit of a problem that I wished could be added in the next update. In most of my concept arts, I use the Lasso Tool and Transform Tool. When i begin a drawing, I start out large and sketchy. When I want to add things onto the drawing I would Lasso the drawing, shrink it down, and tacked thing onto it. Usually when I'm working with my paint, I would save as a PNG go into photoshop and do it that way. I try to start out very small with my gestures before I get into the drawings. I also use the lasso tool to arrange pieces while I'm drawing as well. So, will there be a lasso and transform tool in a future update? I know speaking about future releases is rather foolish; but, I really love this program and want it to be the default one I use.
P.s. does the Animation branch work if you have a Windows operating system? While reading this I thought it could be used on linux operating systems. but I could be wrong.
