Pat Hines used MS Paint for all the illustrations in his book. Here's how. Check out Pat's work here: http://facebook.com/campredblood http://facebook.com/captainredblood https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07143FXZ5 We've also created 2 videos that show the entire process (YouTube has a 12 hour limit - Pat spent 15 hours making this picture). Part 1: https://youtu.be/OREayzbrO3k Part 2: https://youtu.be/aHYAZcd6NbU In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards interviews an artist using an unlikely tool: MS Paint. Microsoft Paint isn't known as the best artistic tool. But Pat Hines used it to create the illustrations for his horror fantasy, Camp Redblood. And the results are incredible. He explains how Microsoft Paint works for him, and includes notes about his favorite artists, like Herge, Ivan Bilibin, and more. He also shows why he prefers Paint to Photoshop and Illustrator and how it created his unique artistic style. This speedpaint is a reflection of years of labor.

He forgot to say that in the new MS Paint you can't use the brush tool because then if you want you fill that shape with some color the result is this... https://i.imgur.com/qEuIrzS.jpg

Hey guys funny story. I was in my first year at University. Digital art was a new thing then and our teacher asked us to paint something in MS paint. I bought a cheap tablet and painted Boticelli's "The Birth of Venus". I ve always been really good at reproducing other art so it came out great. I gave it to teacher but she did not believe that I painted it because I forgot to save painting steps and There were not a lot of talented students in school therefore it wasnt possible for me to draw it since I could be one of them. I failed the class...:D

It’s not that artists that use MS paint for drawing is any better than artists who don’t. Take an example. If you want to get to work, which is 50km away from your house, chances are that you won’t choose to walk there. It doesn’t mean you *can’t* travel on foot. It just means that, if you have the access and means to use a car, there is so much incentive to walk because it’s just really inconvenient if your goal is to get on work on time. Many artists that use other programs can do fairly well in MS paint if you give them the time and interest to do it. It’s just that most seasoned artists don’t see the point in doing so, because why go the long and tedious way when you can achieve the same result ten times faster and more comfortably? Unless their goal is to prove a point, or just for fun, or as an exercise. They can use paint, they just have moved on to better alternative. There’s just much more appeal in using another art program, especially when you know how. Not making drawing in MS paint less impressive though. It still takes a lot of time, skills and dedication to do it, just like how being able to run a marathon is still impressive regardless of how many cars we can take to go to work.

Hey friends, I’m the artist! I have a look at this every so often to see how this video is doing (two million views—all right!!). Couple things: 1. I don’t know why, but “but can he rotate text?” Is the most common question I see here. Is rotating text like the touch of death of MS Paint or something t? I don’t know. ANYWAY, I myself rotate text by manipulating the stretch and skew function. It’s tedious, but then so is MS Paint. 2. YES I’ve seen the Santa. It’s incredible. If there are other pieces by that artist someone please link bc I’d love to see them. I can do realistic people too! This isn’t as detailed as the Santa, but it’s a portrait I did for a friend almost 10 years ago. http://fav.me/d1vzjk7 3. Thanks everyone who has such nice comments, you’ve brightened many a day! Thanks to everyone who hasn’t been impressed at all because you provide much needed motivation to do better. 4. If you’d like to see more of my work, you can find me as CaptainRedblood on most social media. My FB links are in the description above. Rock on!

The only thing that annoys me with paint is that the lines are all pixelated. Instead of the smooth lines youll get when you draw in illustrator or photoshop or whatever. In paint it just doesnt look good at all. Like maybe from a far but. I just dont see how you can not use a program like illustrator which is made for this stuff. Illustrator is very similar to paint in many ways but it has those little features that make everything look so much more professional and make life so much easier for an artist. Paint is just not worth it tbh

That's right! the only way to get a great lines in MS paint is to draw only with the line tool. that's how some artist starts to draw digitally more than a decade ago people, imagine that!

Dude. You gotta try early version of Claris works. Same charm, less suck. You can even simulate transparency through gradients with no fill in the area you want to be transparent. From one wierdo who made what he had work at the time to another. i highly recommend you check it out.

MS Paint can't be qualified as a bad art program... I know this has been said countless times and SOME PEOPLE will argue with me about SOMETHING... But it's the artist that uses the program, not the program itself. MS Paint has a bad rep just because of the people that use it. Bases, poorly done fetish art, meaningless scribbles, etc... Those are people who don't usually have real artistic talent. You can't blame MS Paint for it. It's simple and meant for fun. Though I know, not meant for professional art. But if you use it properly, like this artist here and many other talented people... It's not as bad or as simple as you think.
