Suddenly my MSPaint skills seem a little lacking

I have to admit, I hate when that happens. And your art is making me look bad, can't you tone it down a bit? maybe put in some bad colours or something for me? And in reference to your "free cuddles" t-shirt, wear one that says "free hugs"... you don't want to look like you'll cuddle just anyone!

Not that I've been able to notice your absence, of course…

I really like your drawing skills. What do you use to make these drawings…apart from your imagination ? MS-paint ….. ???

You rock MS Paint

Whoa, comment flurry!
MSPaint is sooo tricky to work with (any skills with MSPaint are skills indeed), I gave up the end and switched to Adobe Photoshop, which is a lot more flexible to work with and quite forgiving with errors (good for perfectionists like me!). Most of my stuff is drawn during thilling lectures on my notes and scanned in by my housemate then touched up digitally.
I think that's covered everything, thanks muchly for the compliments :D
And Chris, I promise I'll post some toned-down artwork! Any subject in particular?

I agree with the above – looks amazing! And it's amusing. Although… if it's you in the pic being sad :-(
Gotta love photoshop :-) You got a graphics tablet? They're so much fun

Could you draw a picture on the subject of Dignity? Or rather the lack of it – dignity lost while chasing something base and unimportant (of your own choosing)
But give them an unattractive jacket or a bad curtain and drape scheme or something: to help my "artistic" ego gain some ground so I can again hold my head up high when I draw stick figures with accidentally strange faces and disproportionate limbs.

Joe, I think I live for my graphics tablet - as sad as that may be!
Hmmm… Dignity. Tricky, but i'll give it a try.

I love my graphics tablet :-) Many an hour has been spent with it. If you wanna see my stuff it is on my website
The more arty things are perhaps these though:
Based on a digitised sketch, as you do:
Painted completely on the computer using the tablet and photoshop (with some help from layered textures):
