I don't see why MS paint cant be used for this sort of thing, but I do agree that it looks like you used some of its tools for creating shapes and lines instead of actually drawing them yourself.

As for the line count thing, what are we saying constitutes a line? If one line is smoothly connected to another, does that make it only one line? Or do you mean a certain number of strokes? I have a WIP going on, but I think it is going to be too complex by the end of it, so I was just curious.

Maybe it would be cool to be able to post 2 versions, one as simple as can be that you can easily paint on the walls, and another with color/slightly more detail to it?

I don't see why this should be considered any different.

I say because it's meant to be a simple character, a big ass face taking up the whole image isn't much off a character.
It also gives you a means to make said character not so simple, as it's just a face, you can put the lines that are intended to define the body, into the face.

also i spray the winner...

That is not either a charactor or a simple drawing..

its good though,

Also to the other the person who said they wanted colour, you can still post it, and it may still win, aslong as its simple.. but the more colours, the harder it is for me to redo in large.

Cool cool! Ill definitely do 2 versions then. Is this getting too complicated? This is probably the simplest character ive drawn in a long time.

Also, props to M-Vero so teaching me some inking techniques, even if he didn't know he was!

Well then, I finished the drawing. I'd like to make it clear that this is, in fact, the FINAL VERSION. It has 19 lines, (not counting the eye patch) and it has exactly 3 colors (red, brown and black). If I missed anything, let me know and I'll repost. Other than that though, this is my finished simple character, I hope you like him.

dude, you literally stole the Creature of the Week (Cow) idea and renamed it with a rhyming name. Suriously?

Well DooDooMeaT, you`re entirely free to start up anyone of those. Posca thought there wasnt enough opportunity for the more "minimalistic" artists to post their designs, so he started this. I have to say though, I find this a brilliant Idea. Sure, its a different starting point, but its one that is very important in a variety of branches. Logos need to be "simple" so that they are scalable; animation characters need to be "simple" so that they are animatable... is that a word?...

sorry for double post
how was this thread approved in the first place anyway? I could go start a new thread called "the gun thread" and it would be closed for too closely resembling Madness Combat. Like, WTF. I just don't get why I have to dig into the deepest crevices of my mind to come up with a good idea for a thread, but this passes :/

There actually is a gun thread buried somewhere in the depths of the art forum, and it consists of just guns people have drawn.
This thread idea was approved by the mods. It's a much simpler COW, giving a chance to more users. A lot of users feel intimidated to enter the COW competitions because of the pieces that are created for those, such as by people like jagondudo. The SCOW let's regular users have more of a chance. Also, there's a legitimate prize at the end as well. Not only did you win the competition, but you get to see your artwork immortalized on a wall, which is a pretty sweet deal.

Okay, guys.. just chill out...

More people like this idea of a "simple" character...
you two are the noly two that have had a go at me...
I talked about it, with J-qb, and he said it was a chance for the either starting artists, or for people that like simpler approce on art...

If you dont want to take part, or contribute in a kind way. then please leave..
if you are willing to contribute, then sure, go ahead...

I did that in the first post, to read my other thread.
and if you did, it would make alot more sence to you.
YES, i did USE the idea of the COWs, and so have many other people...
If you wish to take your anger futher, PM me, also if you ahve questions PM me...

Thank you.

TIME TO THROW MY 2 CENTS INTO THE RING
Keeping something simple can be as difficult as making something as detailed as reasonably possible.
Like with [putting to much detail into something, putting details so small no one will ever see is pointless. Likewise making a character TOO simple, it may be hard to distinguish what it is. I think the main thing to do here is to make a character as simple as possible, but also make it look pleasing too look at and convey what it's supposed to be properly with minimal detail.

I may do something for this if I can get my computer to work with me, normally if this'd happen I'd do it with inks, but my scanner is offline as well, I LOVE UPGRADING!
