    I'm having a hard time deciding
    [​IMG]

    Some friends and I were sitting in a Tim Horton's tonight, talking about photography and checking out a new mini laptop a friend had bought. There was nothing yet installed, so we started jokingly playing around in MSPaint. One person drew the lady, then another person took the laptop and drew the flower, we each took turns adding something until we had the upper image.

    I took the laptop and copied the MSPaint image to my thumb drive. I then brought it home and later tonight, fired up photoshop. I painted over the image as closely as I could. The bottom image is all hand drawn with only the MSPaint image as reference.

    I'm now pretty tired. What do you all think?

    Those MSPaint videos are fantastic. I've probably seen them all before. I don't know what I'd do without layers and soft edged brushes.

    Hey, I'm taking requests if anyone wants to offer something. Give me a crazy idea or even a crazy image to modify into something.

    This was my first digital painting in almost six years. I liked doing this and I want to do more.

    Hey, if you want it big, I've already created an upsampled version because a weird friend of mine wants to make a 12X36" print from it.

    Here you go. Do with it what you like.
