Pictures You Won't Believe Were Made in MS Paint

Voting Rules
Vote up the most impressive MS Paint masterpieces that are almost as good as the original artwork.

MS Paint has provided three decades worth of bored students and people in cubicles who don’t feel like doing any actual work with all the fun that creating digital art can provide. On the surface that might sound like a low blow, but there’s been so much cool MS Paint art created since its inception that it’s hard to narrow down which pieces to include in a “best of” list. Thankfully, the folks over at best of r/goodartvsmspaint did all the heavy lifting. Turn on your inner art critic and take a look at these pictures you won’t believe were created in MS Paint.

Some of the coolest things made with MS Paint are things that have been recreated with the simple-to-use software, thus re-contextualizing it for the modern era. For instance, there’s a version of a Rothko painting on here that will leave you wondering which version is the original, and which is the recreation. These are the best good art vs MS Paint pictures, and if this doesn’t turn on your artistic light bulb, you may need to check your wiring. Vote on the most impressive MS Paint masterpieces that are almost as good as the original artwork. best of r/goodartvsmspaint
