So you think you need something more than MS Paint? Look at this:

I envy those guys so much, wish I could use the basics and pump out great stuff like that.

I spent many years trying to locate a software package that included talent in the box. I eventually realized that it doesn't work that way. I was sad.

Bummer, the site was under maintenance when I went to look at it... :(

I've seen some excellent work done in Paint. Very impressive stuff. Does anyone (here or elsewhere) map in Paint? I'd be interested to see how they'd do it.

I was actually able to view it this time... no-one should be able to use MS-Paint that well, it's gotta be against some kind of universal law! :D

Now just imagine if he were to download GIMP or buy PhotoShop what he could do!

That's just what I was thinking. Imagine how much more he could have done with all the time he spent on it if he hadn't had to restart it twice.

I suppose it's no different in that regard than real-world painting. I'm not sure, though, if I can see the point in becoming such a virtuoso in a program that is strictly inferior to the Gimp. Or even Paint.NET.

Sometimes it is just for the challenge.

Like this guy who made a working 1:3 scale Ferrary 312PB: http://carsguide.news.com.au/site/news-and-reviews/story/ferrari_312pb_excellence_in_car_modelling_and_engi neering/

He even made the glass for the headlights from scratch (i.e. silicone) and fabricated the rubber to mold the tyres!
