Let’s make a drawing

You won’t be able to start drawing just by launching MediBang Paint. In order to start drawing, you will need to create a canvas.

Here, we will explain the steps from opening a new canvas to preparing to make a drawing.
The home screen will appear when you launch MediBang Paint.

After opening a new canvas, we’re ready to start drawing.

Next time, let’s try actually drawing on the canvas with a brush and an eraser.


Besides choosing the canvas size from a template, you can also specify the values you want manually.
