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

Is MS Paint free?
yes; it typically comes already on a PC when you buy one.  I don't think Macs have it though...but I think there might be a programming way to put it on a Mac...just not sure.

Pffft, MS Paint is probably my favorite program. I mean, I grew up living to draw on that.
I just made this… and I made it in only MS Paint itself. And honestly, I am proud of it because I feel like I have control in that program.
In my opinion, Paint is only good because it has a decent curve tool, which makes it great for doing lineart. It's too basic for most stuff IMO, so I use GIMP most of the time.

Still a lifesaver because of dat curve tool though.

I've always used MS paint for all of my pictures and just used gimp to "attempt and fail at adding transparency" to my pictures.

The past few deviations I made were completely in gimp, and I must say the look horrible xD

I draw in ms paint and then i make the background of my pictures transparent with GIMP, they are both COMPLETELY free and are easy to master :3
