Patterns are impossible on the new Paint.

Postby Guitarlove » Mon Mar 29, 2010 7:11 pm

In case you're wondering or forgot, I have the "Newer" Paint, version for Vista, so I can't do the cool tricks. I've found solutions that are pretty easy for backround patterns, but not patterns on clothes. Let me spell it out for you: I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E. All you cool old MSPaint-ers can do that cool trick that's metioned in those tutorials. It doesn't work for me.
Despite this fact, I've challenged myself with this very patterned doll:

Base.
Palettes.
EDIT: Alright, so I added shading, hair, and the patterns on the shaded dress.
Stuff I want help with:
1. Do you like the shading? I like it, personally. Its like a mixture of my old shading style and my new one.
2. How do you shade a wooven basket? I gots no clue.
3. Do you think the patterns go well enough?
4. Any more details I should add?
5. Do you think it looks like she has a forehead?

I hate the new MSPaint. Tis stupid and difficult to figure out. D:
I'm sure you could download the old MSPaint online, tho. And you could switch in between the old and the new as you need.

As for the dark blue pattern... I dunno, vertical white-and-blue stripes maybe? To perhaps offset the dottiness of the other two patterns. :)

Yeah, www.bunnystick.com offers both the 98 and windows XP version of paint for download, under resources I believe :)

I use vista paint and I made this quick tut on how I do patterns :) You could do multiple patterns/multiple colors either by doing each color separately with this method or by recoloring after you add the pattern :3

I can type out explanations, but I think it is pretty self explanatory :P

Maybe its just for my specific Paint or something, but this is what happens when I try to do stuff like that:
Image
Lazy and just used an old doll. :P
Anyway, but yeah this is what happens whenever I try to follow pattern tutorials. :|
Thanks for the ideas though!
I'm not sure if it would be worth downloading the old Paint or not. Because I'm not going to use this computer for the rest of my life. I want to eventually get a Mac laptop (Currently saving). I might download it when I get the Mac, though.

I figured out your problem! :D
Whenever you copy or paste something, MAKE SURE that the right click/bottom color that you have selected is the BACKGROUND COLOR (white, in my tutorial) and make sure that you have TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND selected

That should help a lot :D

Oh be quiet. I've yet to do doll for a year, so I have permission not to know! Actually, I've been dolling for almost a year.

I am loving the design of the dress, and the brilliant idea of the many patterns - and you are doing a really good job on those, too. The highlighting is very good :)
