One more stamp...because I'm...really bored? XD

No, really though. I am SO tired of people always like "Well I can't do this and that, I only have Paint" or someone making this complete CRAP piece of 'art' and boast about how they did it only in Paint and get twice as many comments as a lot of pixel artists out there like "OMG! I can't believe you did that in just paint! You're so awesome!!!!"

It's like everyone only expects crap to come out of Paint, so when they see something slightly less craptastic the person who made it suddenly "OMG AWESOME!"
I do ALL of my dolls/bases/whatever in NOTHING but Paint, okay? Sure I do use photoshop to SAVE the file because I admit Paint isn't so nice with making things transparent, but that has nothing to do with what you can MAKE in it, and there are tons of free programs to save things transparent for you so yeah..I'm tired of all the excuses. I get that some people just can't use a certain program/art medium/etc, but that doesn't make that program/medium automatically crap, does it?

And just to make it clear so I don't get people mad at me, I don't think people who do dolls/pixel art in photoshop are like..'cheaters' or don't work as hard. Definitely NOT. I envy those who can make a doll in photoshop because I don't think I ever could. What I don't like is people saying Paint isn't just as good as Photoshop/*insertotherprogramhere* for making ART. Plain and simple. Paint is capable of making art just as good or even better than photoshop at times. So yeah...I get tired of seeing junk like that.

I am a proud MS Paint user and that's not going to change until pixel art completely dies...and I don't see that happening.

Sorry for that rant there...I seem to like ranting on stamps. XD So um...I guess that's about it. Paint FTW. :D

I probably would use paint for my artwork but I usually need layers for most of my art so...

I'm lost with it.

But I've seen amazing work done with it!

MS paint is pretty good. its the only program I can have because if I download any programs my computer will be slower than hell. the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have layers
