Now, I have always found MS Paint to be simple, but extremely frustrating to use. Probably because you have to have such a steady hand when "drawing" with a mouse.
This guy has used MS Paint to make the Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" which took him two hours, but he has sped up so you can watch it in under 5 minutes.
I've seen several videos like this, so I guess a lot of it is shading and patience. So, I figured I would give it a try. Just compare mine with the end result above. This time, I took my time (it still only took me about 10 minutes).
Yeah, maybe I should just stick to blogging.
