Incredibly amazing painting painted using only MS Paint

Hats off to you, Diamonster. A clear proof that skills matter more than the tools used.

MS Paint? Is he kidding? This is really impressive, IMHO.

seen this before, I have the pic in my comp. It's quite a long time ago but IIRC it's a 500 hours job.

Old news, eh?

But seriously, this guys reminds of How To Be Creative Rule No.10: The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props. Here's part of the explanation:-

A fancy tool just gives the second-rater one more pillar to hide behind.

Which is why there are so many second-rate art directors with state-of-the-art Macinotsh computers.

Which is why there are so many hack writers with state-of-the-art laptops.

Which is why there are so many crappy photographers with state-of-the-art digital cameras.

Which is why there are so many unremarkable painters with expensive studios in trendy neighborhoods.

Hiding behind pillars, all of them.

Pillars do not help; they hinder. The more mighty the pillar, the more you end up relying on it psychologically, the more it gets in your way.

And this applies to business, as well.

Which is why there are so many failing businesses with fancy offices.

Which is why there's so many failing businessmen spending a fortune on fancy suits and expensive yacht club memberships.

Again, hiding behind pillars.
