Getting Started

To begin a drawing, click on the Draw! link in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

Start Drawing

Before you begin to draw, this window will open. This is where you select the required options for your drawing canvas.

  • For this tutorial, pick the top option, Shi Painter.
  • Type in the width and height you want for your drawing. The minimum width/height is 50 pixels and the maximum width/height is 1048 pixels (occasionally, this may be set higher upon request).
  • Remember to tick the Animation Box if you want the program to save the animation of your drawing process and also to save the separation of layers (if you use them) should you want to re-touch your drawing at a later time.
  • Click on the "Submit" button, your drawing canvas and toolbar will appear.

Note: Instead of clicking on the Draw! link you can use this Quick Pick drop-down menu to select all of the items above (it saves you a step).
