This was a good idea and turned out nice. c: It's very difficult to draw in Paint with a mouse, and I think you did a good job. There are some things you could work on, though. Some easy things to fix would be coloring over those colored rings around the things you filled with the paint bucket, it might take a little while but it will make your artwork look neater and more finished. Also, the anatomy on the cat could be improved. I'm not an expert on feline anatomy, but some things that stood out are the proportions of the back legs and the lack of a neck. (this guide should help you [link]) Other than that, I can tell you tried and the result ended up cute. Keep up the good work. :D
What do you think?

The body is far to skinny to begin with. The fire seems to look like water. The city back round needs work, unless you know buildings with windows that big you can see from a distance (speaking of, you need to work on perception in general). The hair on the cat is unnecessary, it just makes it look pitiful. The back legs are just bad, you'll have to erase the extra line there and make the hindquarters less chunky. It has no neck, the paws are too small, and the tail looks like a squirrels. Make the tail smoother, like a cats, a feathery tail isn't something beginners like you can pull off. It's missing claws as well.

if you find it fun, then draw, it does not matter how it comes out as long as you enjoyed doing it. theres a lot of negative comments on this, and some are NOT called for. true, its not the best but unless you have a fair critique and actually want to HELP the person, then don't comment at all. just take a few tutorials, study the bone structures and how to draw fire and just try to improve the best you can :)

Honestly I like the face and though the background could have been spruced up a little more I like it. I noticed this is the NEW Ms Paint, and i recommend downloading the older version that I grew up with. Search around for the 2007 or 2008 version of Ms Paint, it's free, and a whole lot better than the junky new version. There are many tutorials on this site for cat anatomy, and red-lines. [link]
That's one of the many red lining groups and they help to try and correct your drawings so you can draw whatever it is better the next time ^_^
I'm sorry for the bad comments you've been getting.
Some people don't realize there are others who may have just started drawing, with a mouse
I remember back in 2008 i started drawing and posting my artwork that i did with a mouse and...well it wasn't the best ever. Taking time however, and trying to improve anatomy throughout almost five years up to today proved to be the best decision. You'll get better, that is if you even want to. Just draw for fun!

Hmm, there are too many negative comments on this, seriously people, there's no need to be nasty, okay, maybe you personally don't think this is very good, but art is subjective so others may disagree, and regardless, you don't have to be rude, if you have nothing constructive to say then go look at something else.

Lol, this is probably better than I could do with a mouse X3 Although I agree with the other people who have posted sensible critique comments, there are obvious anatomical flaws etc but I won't restate them as others have already pointed them out, so I'll leave some positive observation - the expression on the face is good and I like the idea. Keep practicing and remember to use reference images when possible and you'll improve greatly in no time ^^

Ok, I know there has been a LOT of bad comments on this, I must say some might be a little harsh, but in some scene right... You can improve but it isn't a massive fail, everyone fails in the start~ hell my art in the beginning I could stab myself with a pen X3 [Here's it to make you feel better and to prove it [link], I think it was with a mouse? ]
But maybe look up some reference pics/Tutorials, I know how hard it can be to draw on paint, believe me, look at :devt0x1catedv1rus: [Yes My other account]

But you can do really well on it if you keep practicing! :33 Not all mouse work turns out bad! *hug*

okay, well that's just stupid. We ALL sucked when we began. She's getting better. So, let's say the kindergarten sayings. Treat someone the way you want to be treated and if you DON'T have something NICE to say, don't SAY it. I'm really disappointed that a fellow deviant wouldn't try to help someone improve their art, even when it doesn't need to be improved. This is awesome. and people just can't see that she has potential. We all do. I hope you'll think twice before you say something like that again.

I'm sorry, but I can't say this is "awesome"

Her art does need to be improved, mostly -- I feel -- by starting back with the basics of learning cat anatomy.

Loko did not put it nicely, that's for sure, but it doesn't mean they're automatically wrong.

Jaystar cannot blame MS / a mouse for the art not being good as they wanted. MS is a brilliant program, just take a gander at *Agoraphobic-Blue for example.

A mouse may be harder, but not make things worse. I personally cannot draw with a mouse anymore, even if I used to be able too; however I know plenty of artists who make wonderful mouse-work.

I know. pretty much everyone's art needs to be improved- I know I do. I began looking at cat anatomy, but decided not to look at a cat structure every time I draw a cat. She definitely did NOT put it nicely at all, but Jaystar took it fine. I admire her for that. If someone had said the same thing to me, I would just ignore them. And I do watch Agoraphobic-Blue. I just watched her recently. I know she can;t blame a mouse or MS paint for the decency of a drawing; nobody can, unless their computer is old and messed up. I'm getting better at mouse-work, but I prefer my tablet. I LOVE MS paint, by the way, so I hope you don't think that I don't like the program. In fact, I still do all my work on it. I just want to justify my point. She has potential. :meow: I think that's it. X3 that was a mouthful!

Its NOT ok to say it if you believe its true i mean look at you how old are you like 4? I mean seriously, its ok to say stuff like "Its not bad, But keep practicing and you'll get there" but what you said just turns the whole situation upside down.
