I was sent on a Diversity training course that was manditory for my workplace. Before I went I thought it was gonna be a joke course, but it really hit me, and was really very interesting...

so my artwork is dedicated to diversity... may we all have patience and understanding.


and yes, it killed me that I couldn't use Photoshop! :D

Here's mine. It's supposed to be a dragonfly, flying over water with reflections of the sun, flowers and plants in it. It's not that great, but it holds sentimental value, since dragonflies are my totem insects. It just kind of whacked me with inspiration as I was looking at the pics on here... gee.. 9am.. whacked with inspiration..think my totem's trying to tell me something? O-o

Just opened paint and started doodling; here's what I ended up with. I figured "what the heck."

I also learned how much I dislike using Paint.

Sorry, but my flatmate wiped MS paint when he re-formatted his comp, :( this has been done with a more advanced programme, but I tried to use the simplest settings!

Hey, I know I'm disqualified, so I'll post my pic anyway and wait for the next contest:)

I think that is acceptable, but will confer to make sure. doesnt look
like photoshop paint. does resemble MSpaint.

and contestants feel that it shouldnt be allowed please pm me.
and I still have to make sure with the judges.

See, I don't know one program from another..........I'm handicapped here!

No Flar, I don't think that would be fair on the other entries....after all , the comp is for MS paint or similar.

I don't mind though, had fun doing it as it's the first time I've tried to draw on the computer from scratch! :D

Roll on the next contest though....:)

Thanks! :) Although I really wish I could have used a better paint program. That took me about two minutes to do lol.
