Can you believe FuggedabouditNL was able to do this in Microsoft Paint? I could barely draw a circle with the official circle-drawing tool. Guess it’s not about the tool, after all. He puts Photoshop artists to shame! As you probably know, MS Paint is free software! This video once again proves that one doesn’t need expensive programs like Photoshop to create some nice 3D images! This drawing was done in only five hours. Can you even believe he did this? Seriously? I’d like to see YOU try it! Music Credit – Epic Demo by Cesc Vilà.

Every once in a while, I come across something so insanely cool that I have to share it with you. I received an email from Dennis the other day. He is a 3D artist… using Paint. Yes, you read that correctly. He creates works of art using nothing other than Microsoft Paint. In this demonstration, Dennis drew his imitation of the Bushmaster ACR (aka Magpul Masada) from the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. How insanely good is this? I cannot even draw a square using Paint, let alone anything like this. Are you doing something geeky and fantastic with simple programs found on your computer? We want to hear about it!

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed TechOverlord has submitted a screencast to us in order to show off Sumo Paint. This is a free – and excellent – alternative to Photoshop. There are more features and filters than I can begin to describe in this short description. I messed around with Sumo Paint myself, and was pretty impressed with my results. Are you still not convinced? Go browse through some of the user contributions and let yourself be dazzled. You can run Sumo Paint right in your browser, or download the desktop client. The interface is very user-friendly, and clean. It’s a snap to navigate around the menu without getting lost like you tend to do in Photoshop (before you are an expert, of course). Sumo Paint also has a thriving online art community of over a 6 million unique users and over 130 000 registered members from over 200 countries. The primary purpose of the community is to create, share, remix, explore, comment, rate and fave the artwork of its members. Sumo Paint works on both OS X and Windows machines. However, you must have the latest version of Flash installed. […]
