Your boss wants you to concept a new dwarf character for his latest gaming idea. Your desk is cluttered with various energy drinks, the mp3s are blasting. He strolls over and asks for the concept to be ready in 10 minutes. The IT admin doesn't have a fondness of you so he's uninstalled photoshop, painter, and any other program which you would normally use. He's also taken away your wacom pen and you can see him chewing it from across the room as he solves todays problem with the network.
Your only painting tool available is MSPaint and your trusty mouse, what can give him in 10 minutes?
(to run mspaint START--> RUN --> type MSPAINT)
(Mac guys, use something similar. MSPaint only has 2 undos)
Lough out as loud as you can
microsoft wireless mouse... 10 minutes...
A4 Tech mouse ms paint and I never press undo
little over tens mins but I got carried away :P he looks kinda boring, maybe i need to put him in a more interesting or active pose.
I always make my concepts in MS Paint, to ensure maximum quality.
took me right back to my fresh install of this new thing called "windows" back in the days. It was fun! I'm gonna appreciate photoshop and the wacom even more from now on!
//edit: 10 minutes, mspaint, and uhm... hama Optische USB-maus. (my backup)
It was a bit big so I had to resize it in Photoshop...hope that´s allowed
Awesome stuff guys!
All used MSPaint and standard Microsoft Optical Mouse.

This one was scaled 50%, so the edges appear softer than the original.

I did another just now
Nice stuff all
There are a few issues, but I think it fails on the concept level.
took me 20 minutes. Sorry if that breaks the rules. I *am* a limit pusher. that's what i do, I push limits. (man i feel retarded today)
and at first i didn't read the assignment good enough and didn't make a dwarf but just some sort of bird like thingy, took me 2 mins:
but becouse of the simplicity of paint i did work much faster than usually (and worse, but never mind about that )
Haha! thread reusbrrection! Yay! hee heeh eeh ehahh!!HA!!
Im going to write this one up as "gold medal in the avant-garde special olympics".
BY MY BEARD! you guys are good. Hmmm...I feel out of place without a pencil in hand.
