Gatling like a sir!
As you may or may not know, makingPaint Stick Wars is hard work. (yes it is)
It takes hours ofpixel by pixel drawing to complete a scene, not to mention thecomplex thought process involved in orchestrating a well balanced battle! (Seriously, someone should give me a medal for this!)
You should also to take into account the limitations of MS Paintwhen making a stick war scene.
You can’tproperly cut out segments as you would in Photoshop or Illustrator.
You can’tfreely rotate segmentsas you would in Photoshop or Illustrator.
Basically you can’t do a whole shitload of things you would like to be able to do.
Also, you can't really use too much diagonal lines, it createstoo much jagged edges and is just confusing.
Aftersomeexperimenting (inMS Paint!),I started noticing I had developed sometips and tricksto make my life easier.(Just compareone of myearlier works (War 2.0) withone of my latest (Loading bay breach) and you’ll see whatI mean.)
Anyway I’ve decided (really just now, typing this text which had no apparent purpose af first)to create a tutorialfor Paint Stick Wars in MS Paint!
Isn’t that great news?
Weren’tyou waiting for just that?!
Now,put your pants back on andsit back down!
Seriously, sit down...
I’m currentlystillworking on two other PSW’s: a 3D Western scene(preview)and a 2D Zombie underground apocalypse style scene, sothe tutorial will have to wait for a few weeks.
Until then, watch out for the next Paint Stick War!
