Mina's Printables:) MS Paint (13)     


This is the seventh of a series of nine easy to follow lessons where you can learn to draw in MS Paint. We will make a Lion this time.

Read through the tutorial first.

If you do not understand how to do any steps in this tutorial, go back to previous lessons. The previous lessons are more detailed.

Open MS Paint. Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Paint.

Size your canvas. Go to Image/Attributes
A nice size to work with is 8 inches by 7 inches.
See how to do this - Paint Tips for Tutorials

This lesson is based on the bear which we made in the second lesson Make a Bear or Mouse

Open up the file you saved there, or do that tutorial first. Select the Bear, right click and copy.




Paste the Bear into a new document




Choose the Line tool and a thickness for it. Make short zigzag strokes releasing the click to make the lines. Make sure the lines are touching. That is to say, there are no gaps between the lines. Remember you can undo mistakes by pressing Ctrl Z.




Complete the zigzags around the Lionís head.




Choose a color for the mane.




Click the outline with the Bucket tool, using the same color you used for the mane.




Ready to make a pride of Lions? Select, hold Ctrl and drag to make copies.




Have fun changing the colors!

Save your work. Go to File/Save As, give your work a name and save as a BMP, JPG or TIFF file so you can use them later.
Very good job!

Have fun! :)
