I've recently taken to applying the lessons and techniques of Bob Ross' Joy of Painting to original sketches made on MS Paint.

These are really cool. Are you doing them from a picture or just from your head?

Never thought I'd ever say this, but you managed to produce something great from MSPaint. Never thought that was possible.

I loved watching Bob Ross.  What that guy could do with a piece of canvas in 30 minutes was amazing.

Having said that, these are very nicely done KJ.  Being someone with zero artistic ability I must say I envy you a bit.

I suggest you try painting

I suggest you take up real painting then. My experience is that painting on a computer is more difficult than painting on a canvas. Maybe there's a hidden talent :)

I love MS Paint. Well, the older version that comes with XP that is.
I use it exclusively to do all the graphics and sprites in my games.

Photoshop? GIMP? Who needs 'em! :)

Those paintings are really cool. I have used gimp to make some abstracts before. It's like MS paint with more options. Keep up the good work. ;)
