So this one time, a lot of people got caught up in their excitement over nothing astounding.

http://www.ubersite.com/m/84167

That seriousely bugs the crap outta me.  Much much MUCH greater things can be accomplished with MS paint and their treating him like he's god of the program.  He doesn't have hardly any technical pixel-art skills what-so-ever.  Some form of random dithering, and some really screwed up AA, thats it.  Sure, he spent alot of time on it - i give him that, but otherwise, the thing is a piece of crap.

Friends don't let friends use MSPaint. Even super artists like I think Monsoon2d where you can't rightly say 'switch to pro motion' because they rock so hard anyway, it just pains me to think people have to work around such a soddily written program. Please! Graphic's Gale at least! Pro Motion optimally!

Digitally sketching using MSPaint with the caligraphy brushes is the best thing ever, though.

One day I'll create my own tool, and life will be good...

I'm going to buy ProMotion with my first paycheck I think

I'm guessing he doesnt use MSPaint.  Looks like custom brushes.

Then why don't you just go with the first one? The second one's feet don't have enough motion.
