When Paint was the Photoshop

Part 3/3
of the "decade old stuff'
So since I had a lot of time and no awareness of the existence of "softwares made for drawing", I used to sometimes make stuff on MS Paint... ya with all the colours and transparency type effects done manually. Phew! Was good fun though...

It was the time when I thought "Banarasi" is a kind of embroidery and the only Indian motif is the Paisley.. etc etc... hehe... These are the "not so bad ones" and that ends my 3-Part reminiscing about old stuff.
Should focus on learning watercolours now :)

PowerPoint Misuse

In the series of "decade-old" stuff.....
So back in 2000-2001 I used to totally trip on PowerPoint... Since we had a new computer and I had too much time.. And what better way to give an outlet to your imagination than clean lines and fun patterns that are totally easy... PowerPoint, you are great, but I am officially a designer now, so I'm trying to make friends with Illustrator :P But nothing beats your awesomeness!

My first "brush" with MS Paint back in 2000...

I had made these photo frame thingies with little themes.. Seems funny now, but 11 years back I totally used to trip on Paint. Will post more "decade-old" stuff soon. :P

First user of "Oinki's Colouring Book"

It is so nice to have someone draw for you to colour in. Ankita gave me this cute owl to practice my new-found enthusiasm for watercolours on. Thanks Oinki, you should really make a colouring book!
