    I remember as a youngster when I attempted to draw stickmen on a computer, and I was completely useless at it! LOL.

    However, I really love your tutorials because drawing a stickman using MS paint looks so fun, even if I am a grown adult now 🙂

    Thanks for the steps, and I will certainly give it a whirl on my computer to see what stickmen I can create.

    Hi Loes
    Thanks for your very inspiring post you make it look so easy. I have a tried before to draw but not with MS Paint in this way so I will definitely give this a go.

    The problem I have is having the inspiration to come up with the designs. I can now copy these figures but I’m not much good at seeing a picture and then breaking it down the way you have done so cleverly here.

    Are there any tips on how to make that part of the process easier?

      Hi Marie, thank you for your nice words, my tip to you is to practice on a picture. Try to find the outer lines. That are the only lines you need, success creating something special, kind regards, Loes
