    I'm sure we've all at least heard of the classic drawing program MS Paint -- it was a popular art program back in the day due to the limited selection and difficulty of obtaining more professional art/design programs such as Photoshop. Have you ever used MS Paint to draw?

    I used to make tons of art of my Neopets using this program in the early 2000s, lol. MS Paint was what introduced me to oekaki and then Open Canvas, then the likes of Photoshop & Paint Tool SAI. Without it, I'd not have gotten to where I am today. good times ye!!

    To be honest I still use Paint as my go-to art program. Mostly when working with pixel art and I find its simple interface to be extremely useful and intuitive for it. In fact, I actually use the version of MS Paint from Windows XP which I copied over from an old computer.

    I used it for a while, and the majority of my early art was made using it, but after some time, more traditional art began to reach me, and I eventually stopped, only going back to occasionally see if I can think something up.

    I used MS paint back when we only had Windows computers at school. Ever since they replaced all the computers with Macs, I didn’t use it. I also only own Macs at home.

    I still use paint since it's the only thing we have. I mean, it makes my drawins look a little sloppy but I make the best of it.

    I mean I used it when I didn't understand photoshop very well.
    I still use it a little like...here. This is a frame from an animation I did.
    Opening scene 3.png
    The background was obviously made on photoshop though.

    There are people I've seen that can do amazing work on there though like...
    Oh! Christella Xaviera. Just check out her animation on youtube because that was done entirely on MS Paint and it's incredible.

    My old school had an IT class. That may sound amazing, but theses are the two things they taught us:
    - Coloring with MS Paint (yes. They literally gave us these coloring sheets and told us to color them in with the fill tool.)
    - Making Scratch Games
    That's literally all we learned before I left.
    So yes. I used MS Paint. And I hated it.

    I still doodle my pixel art ideas on ms paint!

    I never tried MS Paint to draw, I've used it a few times but never in a serious way, but I'm pretty sure I would love to try it, because I'm someone who loves to do things with literally no help whatsoever, having only a few basic tools to do something is a challenge, and I'm always up to do challenges :p

    I used it to make some pixel art years ago, mostly for the sake of seeing if I could. I actually still keep it in my collection of art programs just in case I ever want to dabble in it again. I mean, I haven't really touched it in years, but what if I want to use it??

    I used to use MS Paint to make Pokémon trainer sprites!!! Ahh, those were good times... except for that I lost all my sprite work. Maybe I should go back and make some more!

    I used to use MS paint when I was in primary school and I didn’t actually know how to draw, I just played around on it and for some reason I did something like this a lot: 3ADF1E92-13C8-4C13-A7E4-6FB041E4703B.jpeg
    (Artist’s rendition, this is not actually MS paint) 59FFEB4B-5C15-4CBA-A1E7-4C5433B7D316.png I used to draw something like this, and it’s supposed to be cars on a race track that had loop de loops and I always zoomed in close when I drew and it looked tiny when I zoomed out.

    MS Paint was the first program I used for digital art, so I a have a soft spot for it even if it is pretty limited with tools and whatnot.
    I think it's good for spriting however. I'd rather use it over all those other spriting programs out there.

    I actually still use MS Paint for spriting, it's easily the best tool to use for this in my opinion because of it's simplicity. For recolouring especially.

    I personally prefer Traditional art (specifically charcoal sketching), but if I do any online art, MSPaint is still my go to; I suck at using it, but I tend to use it for LOLs anyways, so it works out perfectly, heh.
