I Tried To Recreate Famous Paintings In MS Paint And Let's Just Say It Didn't Go Well

It's the least I could do.

You probably know this by now, but after haunting/blessing generations of artists and art lovers, MS Paint is going away (okay, not really, but the initial scare made me very emotional!) And yeah, Paint has always been the butt of the joke, but for many, it was their first digital art tool.

So here's my ode to you, Paint: I recreated works by the great masters of art on your humble application. (I used a tablet, but as you'll see, I really didn't gain an advantage from that.)


But after I finished that one, I realized I didn't have time to put the same amount of effort into all the others. You'll see a perfect example of that in my sad attempt at replicating The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo.
