These are pictures I have drawn pixel by pixel with MSPaint. They are

program. Designing them is like doing a puzzle, but you end up with a

MSPaint*. You may need to have to change the PNG image to gif or bitmap.
To color, drop white into all the
colored areas to clear the color.
use the colors in the palette to re-color it, or use your own colors.
Be careful using black. Do not use pure "0, 0, 0" black as it will
damage the black lines. The dark black in the palette box is safe to
use as black.
be careful when dropping color onto it not to hit a black line between
the colors/boxes. If you drop color onto it and it appears "nothing
happened", undo it before continuing. On the other hand, if you like to
do puzzles, drop white somewhere at random on the black lines in the
picture and then try to find it and how it has altered the picture and
fix it, or put white pixels on the black lines and see how you can
change the design. Oh, yes, for the easily satisfied these graphics can
provide hours of mindless entertainment. Once you learn the concept of
it, make your own and see how they come out.
have a Windows system that does not appear to
have Paint, open any picture or graphic such as a jpeg, select "Edit"
and Paint will open.
