MyPaint's interface is graphically fairly simple, but there are tasks which need an artist's eye.
- Get involved: list of open artwork requests.
- Have you created some cool brushes for MyPaint? Share them with others!

MyPaint's icons are primarily SVG symbolic icons, rendered at 16x16 pixels. For certain uses such as the toolbar, we ask for 24x24 pixel versions too. Try to be pixel-exact when designing icons, that way the icons will look good at the sizes we need.

This means we we have particularly stringent requirements of openness for the standard MyPaint brush packs and paper textures. See the Licensing Policy in the wiki for details.
