MS Paint year in review

To snap us out of our year-end doldrums, OBNUG is once again hosting the MS Paint season review. You should know the drill by now...get MS Painting, you pixel Picassos, because there are still two days left in the dead period.

The rub:
Studies have shown that cartoons are 35 percent funnier when rendered in MS Paint. Don't believe me? Check out last year's epic MS Paint review! I shot milk out of my nose enough times to wonder why I drink milk exclusively in front of my computer monitor.

Here's whatcha do: Make a one-panel cartoon that encapsulates the best, weirdest, funniest, or peeing-off-a-balconiest of the 2013 college football season. Oh...and make it funny. It doesn't have to be Bronco-centric, but that would certainly help.

Images probably shouldn't exceed 800 pixels wide and saved at web resolution—72 dpi and in a reasonable format (if you send me a .bmp, so BANNED). If you have a more sophisticated computer art program (like Photoshop), here's how you MS Paint-ify it: Open a new document in Photoshop and set the size to 7 pixels by 7 pixels and fill the entire frame with black. Now, use the select tool to select the entire image and then click "Edit/Define Brush Preset" and save your square brush. Make a new document and use your saved brush to paint away. It's easy...it's fun...it's 90s-rific! You can also download this free mac knockoff, Paintbrush.

When you're done, post your masterpiece in the comments below...or you can email it to us at tips@obnug.com

Get painting'! Here are some examples from the last year's review to get your creative juices flowing:
