Dead Ants On My Pillow by JohnSu Dead Ants On My Pillow by JohnSu
I would not yet recommend using muro to anyone. Or rather, the Guy Who Does Not Know How To Use Muro would not recommend it to Anyone Who Already Has Drawing Software.
It feels like a work in progress, being unresponsive at times and lacking some features I didn't realize I'd miss (e.g. - scaling a selection). And for whatever reason, my strokes were super shaky when writing those words by hand. That is an anomaly to me that will probably keep me from returning to it for quite some time.

Anyhow, despite all my complaining, it was fun trying to paint again. I am not accustomed to it after doing only cel-shading for so long.

Made with deviantART muro
Based on actual events

Yeah... I do use it, but that's because I don't know any better programs to go to -.-
Can anyone suggest some art programs for me?
I can't seem to find any good ones -.-
Thanks ^u^

Hahaha I thought this was supposed to be a haiku at first. I was counting the syllables.
zJoriz Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
Ants should remember not to head-butt humans... They tend to end up at the losing side of the conflict.

Love how the art turned out. Kinda poetic, in a way.
GigabyteXX Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Oh my god that's hilarious, I also hate using muro maybe if had sensitivity and blending... though the feature they added is pretty cool

Bahaha more like you're sleeping on someone's XXL boxers that your mum ripped apart and reconstructed into bed sheets
climbtreez Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It does make your handwriting look shaky, but I think it complements the picture nicely. You make me laugh as always, my lovely Mr. Su
Vueiy-Visarelli Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ya' know, that could totally be a haiku...if you split up words and phrases for the sake of syllables. Also: ew. Also also: I at first thought this was a photo, so I'd say you're doing pretty well using Muro, even if it isn't your favorite tool to use.
Rayless-Night Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
It's terrible that I laughed, isn't it? I regret nothing.

But you should be ashamed. Of your face. Or your face should be ashamed. Whichever makes you feel worse, that's what you should be.

But more seriously: I agree, for a moment I thought it was a photo. Simple but great work.

My face is ashamed :crying:

Wow wait? This was drawn? It looks like a picture. You took perspective classes I take it?

How do you know my childhood story!?!?!
The only difference is that they were alive, falling from the ceiling, and biting me (and I don't think I killed all of em).
