"I can't do great works of art because all I have is MS Paint" 

It's NOT the program, it's the artist using the program. 
Remember that.

EDIT: I should probably mention this was 50+ hours or work for this. So don't be discouraged and think this person actually just sat down and did this in like 5 minutes, haha! And yes, it IS the newer version of MS Paint (Windows 7 and higher maybe? I don't know if Windows 8 has MS Paint or not).

I agree! I used to use Paint for all of my pixels as well. It maybe took more time because it's easier to work when you have separate layers for everything, but it's entirely possible to create something fantastic! Unfortunately, no program is a miracle worker and using a fancier program won't automatically make your art better. ^^;

(That being said, I need to work with SAI instead of GIMP, because SAI has that stabilizer and my lines tend to be overly wobbly without it!)
It's true. The art on MSPAINTADVENTURES is done in MS Paint (duhh xD ). The only reason my sister doesn't read Homestuck is because the art is "Horrible,". It's actually fantastic, but she hates it all because it's done with pixels. She can't appreciate it because 'she goes to a special art college' and 'things that aren't done in photoshop suck' stuff like that. Oh Brother... 
mspaintadventures is not made in mspaint.…
ah ok. that makes a lot of sense. 
Ya know, I downloaded gimp a while back because I eventually wanted to do stuff with layers, but it was too complicated for me and I went back to MS Paint. My best work will still probably be done with traditional colored pencils, but I still like cleaning up stuff in Paint and experimenting with digital coloring every now and then. For me, this video was a nice affirmation that real artists are those that do amazing things with whatever they have, not simply because they use the best supplies or programs.

Thank you for posting this.
That was just amazing!!
Thanks for making me feel like a nooby back again.. Love 
never underestimate the power of MS paint

YES!! FINALLY someone else who agrees with me on this!! Jeez!! I actually don't use it, but I DO enjoy seeing what kind of things people can make using MS Paint!!

maybe I'll get into using MS Paint, just for the heck of it...maybe...
