Talking Anyone want me to paint your horse on the computer?

I just tried out a program on my laptop called Paint. What you do is open it with a picture, and you use all sorts of brushes and colors to make it look like you painted it. Below is my first picture which I just made today. It took a lot longer than I expected...about three hours actually, and i'm not even finished!!! I still have to do the background. Anyways, what do you think? Does anyone else here use Paint and have any advice/tips to make my pictures better? Critique if you want but please don't be too harsh.

Also, does anyone want me to paint your horse?? Just post a pic and tell me their name!

Also, each picture will probably take about a week or two! :)

In paint the easiest way to make the background one color is to outline what you want to do solid and use the bucket feature. At least from my experience.

Hmm...that didn't really work. I guess i'll just have to paint the whole background.

Try the brush with a big point. Or spray painting. I haven't worked with paint in a long time though..
