MS Paint Album Covers
The drawings in this collection were primarily made by various users in discussion forums on the websites and Using MS Paint, and other rudimentary computer drawing programs, users attempted to recreate their favorite album covers and sometimes let others on the forum guess the band and title from the artwork. Given that the websites are largely devoted to underground heavy metal bands, metal album covers form the largest percentage of the recreations (but are not the only albums included). While some users 'cheated' by using a tracing function in the program, most attempted to recreate the covers freehand with just a mouse or the touch pad on their laptops. Some gave themselves a limit of five minutes to recreate the most recognizable essentials.

In November 2010, stopped hosting discussion forums and all old content was lost. This collection will continue to grow as I am sent or discover more images on other forums.

Thank you to Andrew Eckel who alerted me to some threads on 4chan that included over 20 album covers that I have added to this collection.
