If you're not very talented at Illustrator or Photoshop, but really need something digitally illustrated, the next best thing to do is to hire someone, right? Wrong. Pat Hines spent 10 years learning how to use Microsoft Paint to illustrate the cover of his ebook: Camp Redblood And The Essential Revenge, and the results are something a seasoned Photoshop expert would be proud of.
The illustrations are that good that many people have doubted whether he actually used Paint or not, but Pat uses his DeviantArt page to show step-by-step photos of his creations. Check out his work below and be sure to check out his DeviantArt page for more.
You can also find out more about his book and purchase it on Amazon.
