Description: brushes for paint apps
MyPaint is a pressure- and tilt-sensitive painting program which works well
with Wacom graphics tablets and other similar devices. It comes with a large
brush collection including charcoal and ink to emulate real media, but the
highly configurable brush engine allows you to experiment with your own
brushes and with not-quite-natural painting.
This package contains the virtual paint brushes.
This package and libmypaint are required dependencies for gimp 2.10.
There is an obvious duplication here with the brushes included in
Debian's mypaint package. I expect a future mypaint release will no
longer include the brushes and will depend on the mypaint-brushes
package. We could drop the bundled brushes from our mypaint package
now, but upstream advised to wait a bit longer for
https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/pull/538 to be approved.
I intend to help maintain this package under the Debian Multimedia Team.
Packaging is at
