Gaming Pictures using Microsoft Paint

Over on the Frag Dolls UK forum, they have started a little competition to find the creative artist in us all. I wondered if I should have a try just for a bit of fun and came up with this from one of my favourite games Another World:

The rules stated you had to draw your gaming moment using the incredibly basic Microsoft Paint that comes along with Windows. Not exactly the most helpful application at creating works of art, however it certainly has captured the imaginations of many of the members to get scribbling.

Unfortunately the competition ends very soon, but why don’t you, just for fun, create your favourite gaming moments using just Microsoft Paint? If you do, make sure you link to them in your comments here.

    Nice job with MS Paint. If you so much love this lil’ app sitting on our harddrives, you’re not alone in this. I love Paint. I’m still working on my Paint site and I’d want to stick you on when it’s all set. For the start, I’d like a simple tutorial from you and other users to press home the message to people who think Paint’s for newbies.
    Hope to see more Paint stuff.

    Great picture. Another World is also my favourite game.
