i get where you're goin with this.
nice little bob job.
ms paint is a nice meat and potatoes graphics program. like a vw beetle, it is simple and effective for basic transportation (graphics in this case).
if you are running windows, try gimp2, it is a free download , shareware, and has features that in many ways mimic photoshop quite nicely. i have been using gimp for about 5 months, i like it.
It's not bad for a first chop. Welcome to the chop club.
Rule #1: DON'T RUSH!!! Spend time, and come up with something good. When it comes to chopping, it's about quality, not quantity.
Rule #2: When you think you are done, stop chopping, go do something else, and then come back to the image with a fresh perspective, and then finish it properly
Rule #3: You don't use scotch tape to build a house. Use the right tools for the job. Photoshop and Gimp (and others) are real tools. MS Paint is not.
Rule #4: Don't put down your own work. If you insult it and say "it's crap", we're not going to disagree with you.
Rule #5: Accept criticism, and learn from it. Some people are jerks and have no tact (I'm guilty of that). But don't let it get you down.

this is excellent advice, the best rule by far.
even a two minute break, away from the computer screen ( lets the retinas readjust) does wonders for looking at your work with a fresh eye.
don't forget the tricks of resizing your image on a regular basis, it does wonders for your perception of perspective.
cool.was it gimp2?
every time it opens it will give you different handy hints. take a few minutes to read them, they are very valuable.
that's good for ms paint, and I can't wait to see what you can do with gimp!

There is a flas version of photshop but nothing beats the real thing.
You should always work a bigger image. at least 800x600, but even bigger is prefered.
