MyPaint 2.0 Open-Source Drawing and Paining App Adds Major New Features

After more than a year in development, MyPaint 2.0 is finally here and it looks like it’s a major release adding many goodies for passionate digital artists. This version replaces the MyPaint 1.2 series as the latest stable release due to important changes to brush parameters and a whole new layer mode. New features in MyPaint 2.0 include linear compositing and spectral mixing (pigment mode), layer views, new brush settings including gridmap, offsets, pigment, posterize, and extra smudge settings, as well as new brush inputs including attack angle, barrel rotation, base radius, direction 360, gridmap x/y, and zoom level.
