I'd love to see some of your mspaint art and hear about the tricks and weasly ways you developed. I'm always curious about how other people use mspaint, I think its very versatile.

That is sheer genius!
I used MS paint up until.. well, I still do, because until a month ago I didn't have anything else (and I have a penchant for basic), so I thought I'd exhausted the possibilities with it in every weaselly way it could be used, but I see a new Queen has come and I shall gladly pass you the crown!
It is a beautiful peice, wonderful composition and a miraculous feat of MSPaint-ness, well done!!

Congratulations, this is quite an accomplishment! Smile I used Paint a looong time ago and all I remember about it is the lack of anti-aliasing and horrible JPEG compression.

I drew it in mspaint (from scratch with a mouse) as a bmp and the used microsoft word to apply a translucent texture over it. Quite easy, really. Then I used printscreen->paste to move the picture back into mspaint and saved it as a jpeg!
