Man takes 10 years to master Microsoft Paint, because not everyone can master Photoshop

All the below illustrations are a outcome of MS Paint and it is sure to leave you open-mouthed.

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-main

When a product becomes a verb, it isn’t entirely wrong to say that it’s a success. Google did it to search, and Photoshop did it to image editing. But sometimes, these tools could be a pain to use. Especially Photoshop. Illustrator Pat Hines prefers another tool to Adobe Photoshop – none other than MS Paint. Too bored to learn the skills and tricks of Photoshop, the man turned to good old Paint to illustrate his ebook.

“I suck at Photoshop and other programs, and have worked exclusively in Microsoft Paint for over ten years… I honed my craft working long overnights at a hospital reception desk…,” Pat Hines writes. Hines graphic novel goes by the name Camp Redblood And The Essential Revenge.  The novel is about a summer camp set in the 1980’s where teenagers just want to have fun. However, the story takes a twist when the reader gets to know that the camp is full of ghosts and monsters. The novel is available on Amazon for $6 which is approximately Rs 380. Hines further mentions that the novel is a special edition and features 8 full-color illustrations. Also Read - Windows 11 could be a free upgrade for you provided you fall in this category

At first glance, it is very difficult to tell that Hines’ work was all made on MS Paint. The detailing of the artwork is so intricate that each illustration is perfectly made and manages to bring out the detailing perfectly.

The story of the novel goes like:

“I suck at Photoshop and other programs, and have worked exclusively in Microsoft Paint for over ten years…”

“…I honed my craft working long overnights at a hospital reception desk…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-1

“…Then decided to write and self-publish an e-book about a summer camp set in the 1980’s…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-2

“…a summer camp surrounded by ghosts and monsters…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-3

“…and filled with goofy campers and counselors, where the teenagers are always trying to get drunk or laid…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-4

“…and getting into trouble…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-5

“…and breaking into rival camps to carry out elaborate revenge schemes…”

Camp-Redblood-And-The-Essential-Revenge-6

“…and not always succeeding.”

Isn’t it an interesting story?

Until now, Microsoft Paint for me was just a basic graphics/painting utility that is included in all the Microsoft Windows versions. But after looking at Pat Hines work, all I can say is, Photoshop, you have got some real competition, only if we have 10 years to learn. Pat Hines has demonstrated his entire work in a clean step-by-step process here. Take a look!
