Let’s make a work

Just by starting MediBang Paint, you can not draw new paintings. You need to make a canvas to start drawing new.

Here we will explain the procedure to open a new canvas and prepare to actually create a work.

Please start MediBang Paint and close advertisement window first.
Closing the ad window opens a new window in front of the main window.

This window is called “Network panel” (1).

Try closing “Network Panel” and reopening the Network Panel here.

Now that you understand how to open “Network Panel”, let’s make a new canvas. (You can check the detailed explanation of the network panel from here.)

When the new canvas opens like this, preparation for drawing works is complete.

In the next tutorial, let’s actually paint on the canvas with a brush and an eraser.(A detailed explanation of the newly created screen can be confirmed from here.)


In addition to choosing the canvas size from the template, you can also specify the desired value with manual input.
The upper limit of size is up to 20,000px both width and height.
