Frankly speaking, it is not so good. I prefer to a more professional one, MyBrushes is the choice.

The strength of MyPaint definitely lies in the strong/straightforward brush customization and unlimited canvas features. It virtually has no image filters, nor any fancy tools you can find in any-other-image-editor, only a color selector, and layer feature... but you don't need them to doodle around!!!! If you double click the MyPaint icon, you are ready to draw in a new canvas with access to infinite brushes. As a friend of mine likes to repeat, MyPaint is best used together with Photoshop/GIMP: doodle in MyPaint, edit in Photoshop/GIMP. I guess, something in between would be PaintToolSAI

Just found this software when looking around for a painting tool that wil be faster to delivery than GIMP. Works perfect so far. The interface is really going the way the makers want it to - right after installing it I was up with doodling around without having to worry about complicated settings and such.... Hope this software catches up with more people. Perfect lightweight painting tool!!
