Let’s get started with MediBang Paint!

The iPad version of MediBang Paint supports both portrait and landscape layouts.

Portrait layout is recommended if you’d like the canvas to fill the screen, or if you’d like to draw with a portrait canvas, such as for manga. Landscape layout is recommended if you’d like to draw without features such as the brush settings and layer panel covering the canvas.

This tutorial will generally use landscape layout.

Now, let’s get to know the main tools.
