No, I just use gimp. Actually I could use BluTulip but it can't save a
file at the moment  :P

Maliwan/Blu Tulip aren't ready. I will restart working on them very soon, 
hopefully this Friday after I finish window manager core
and MrBIOS's wish list on iLogin.

Maliwan is a frame work for managing bitmap buffer for editing, filtering and
rendering purpose, including icc color profile managements.
It is working already but I need to implement tile support which would take
some times but this should improve its scalability a lot.

- implement tile support. (1st)
- backend support so I can use backend to generate bitmap buffer for a
bezier path for the vector node. (4rd)

Blu Tulip is an image editor that can mix raster and vector, ie. you can do
realtime filtering such as bluring to a vector object w/o losing
vector information.
(this rely on Maliwan a lot) Right now Blu Tulip only is a prove of
concept for Maliwan,
it only have 4 layers and you can't append or remove them.

- nodes' tree editor (2nd)
- add tablet support to back-x11, this was discussed once, I have a hack on this
but it is better to support other functions ie. tilt. [and here we got
a PShop clone] (3th)
- the vector editor (someone told me he's working on this but for his privacy
I wont mention his name) (5th)
