by Mina Keenan (follow)
Mina's Printables:) MS Paint (13)     


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




Select the Ellipse tool and make 2 shapes for the head and ear. Make the ear large and round because we will have to chop it up to get our shape. You can undo any mistake by pressing Ctrl Z or going to Edit/Undo in the Edit menu.




Select half of the ear and delete it. Make sure the background color is set to white. You can press the Delete button on your keyboard, or use the Edit menu by going to Edit/Clear Selection.




Select and delete half of the ear again. We are after a quarter of the circle shape.




While the ear is selected, press Ctrl to make a copy.




We need to flip one of the ears. Make sure the ear is selected.



Right click the selection and go the Flip/Rotate menu.




Make sure the Flip horizontal button is checked and click OK.




The ear is still selected, so move it into place.




Select the other ear.




Move it into place.




Make a snout.
The hard work is done! Letís make more! Choose the Select tool and Transparent background function. Select your frog. Hold the Ctrl key to make a copy. Make as many copies as you like.




Make eyes and nostrils.




Make a smiley mouth with the Curve tool. Draw a line first.




Then click underneath the line, somewhere in the middle to make the smile.




Ready to make more? Select your pig. Hold the Ctrl key, click and drag.




Have fun changing their 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! :)
