This is the eighth of a series of nine easy to follow lessons where you can learn to draw in MS Paint. We will make a Pear 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.

Make an Ellipse for the top part of the pear.
Make another Ellipse for the bottom part of the pear. Remember you can press Ctrl Z to undo your mistakes.
Select the Rounded Rectangle tool, change the color and make a stem.
Making a leaf. We will need a curved shape (a two part process) so change color, choose the Curve tool and draw a line.
Click underneath and near the middle of the line you just made to make your curve.
We will need another one of these curves to make the top part of the leaf. So select it, making sure you are using the transparent background function.
Press Ctrl while you click and drag away to make a copy.
Right click the selection to bring up the Flip and Rotate menu. Rotate by angle 180 degrees.
It is still selected. You are ready to drag it into place.
Make sure the leaf ends are touching.
Fill with color using the Bucket tool.
Select the leaf.
Move the leaf into place.
Make more! Select the pear, hold Ctrl as you click and drag to make more copies. Change colors using the Bucket tool.
To make more variations, try using the Brush tool to make veins on the leaf and the Airbrush tool to make contours on the pears.
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! :)
