Easter(ish) Paint

    Easter(ish) Paint - aka we haven't had a Paint thread in a while - is here!

    What is Paint?

    It is a chain game. You sign up to either describe or paint or if you don't mind which you do. Your host (me) chooses an image and sends it to the first describer in the chain. They then PM a 10 word description of the image to me.
    I send that description to the first painter in the chain. They use that description to paint a masterpiece (using MS Paint or similar). When they have completed their painting, they send me a link to their image which I then pass on down the chain to the next describer.

    Why would I do this?

    Mostly because it is fun :). If you'd like to get a sense of how much fun, there is a link to the last reveal thread here and another holiday themed reveal here

    I'm interested! What do I do?

    Sign up on thread and say whether you'd prefer to describe or to paint. I'll create the links in the chain as people sign up. When your turn comes, you have 24-48 hrs to get your painting/describing done. Then sit back and wait for the laughs.

    If you are painting, you'll need to use an image hosting site to share your picture, imgur and imgBB are popular choices for image hosting.

    I'm hoping to start this fairly soon, but I'll leave it open after we start for any latecomers.

    I'd love to be in as a describer again..... I know you're short of painters, but I'm not brave enough yet!! :o

    (I also haven't a bog's notion how to use those hosting services, which is a problem!)

    I have to get someone to remind me how to get the image from the hosting programme to Boards every time. That's why I don't post many pics :D

    Right, I've experimented with the image hosting thing and successfully uploaded an image and even successfully sent it to myself in a PM :eek: so I'm willing to jump in at the deep end and paint instead of describe if need be :pac::pac::pac:

    If you have a link that needs a describer, ill oblige but don't worry if you're saturated with those of us afraid to paint already :)
