A better drawing app?

1) I have the KUAL drawing extension:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195050
- works OK, only have a thin pencil line the draw with.


2) I can kindof run http://mrdoob.com/projects/harmony/ in the Midori extension (see https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=185721)
- works, but not very well. shades and styles of brushes are real issue.
- I was not able to get the page to work with the default browser?

3) I tried running mtpaint from Debian with Xephyr: works, opens a default 640x480 canvas, might be worth further investigation if nothing better.

also from Debian with xephyr:
xpaint - no display on top of xephyr?
mypaint - can't get it to install?
pinta - messed up my apt-get stuff (won't be trying that again!).

As a side note I used twobob's excellent script:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=200017 to get the libs I needed. I did a debootstrap into a directory instead of an image and copied qemu-arm-static there so I could chroot there, then I copied all the kindle libs there to another directory and modified the script to grab what I needed.

I guess the question is:
What is the best way to continue? The harmony in Midori works a little, but mtpaint could probably be fixed up better. I'm thinking full screen without xephyr? Any hints or advice? Any other programs I can try?
