This is an automatic post.
This is the fifth of seven. Each post contains a MSPaint masterpiece that fulfills a request made last Wednesday by mikedidonato.com readers.
notes by the artist:
Definitely the most difficult so far, detail wise. Being able to portray a person or character accurately is a huge task in MSPaint. Spiderman turned out mediocre. I had to do quite a bit of pixel by pixel editing to make it so that the web on his outfit didn’t end up making him look like graph paper.
I wanted a feeling of desperation in this piece. A superhero? Needing a cab? it’s a brilliant concept, and certainly one that was deserving of my time. I was thinking about putting a cow behind the fence on the left of our neighborhood hero, but I decided it might make the area seem more populated. And I wanted the viewer to think Spiderman would be waiting a long time.
The only reason there’s a fence is to create a little perspective. Without it, the ‘field’ looks like a strange green wavy wall.
