Microsoft Paint Logo: alphabets

Updated on June 28, 2015

Purpose of this hub

I’m going to show how to draw alphabets using a mouse in MS Paint Windows 7 version.

The motive behind this hub

I was thinking about starting a blog and decided to create a logo for it using one of the software: MS Paint, GIMP and Sketchup. Of all the logos I made, I found that the one made with MS Paint was simple and beautiful.

The method

Using these tools provided with Paint

  1. Shapes: ‘Line’, ‘Oval’.
  2. You can use the ‘Curve’ tool too if you’re experienced.
  3. .Tools: ‘Pencil’, ‘Eraser’ and ‘Fill’ tools.

You can use these starting lines as a base lines for precise placement of alphabets.

Drawing A

Draw one angled slanting line facing right: /. Draw another angled slanting line facing left: \, ensuring both lines touching each other at the top upper tips: /\. Draw a horizontal line in the middle of the two lines: A.


Drawing a

Draw a slightly slanting line towards the left. At the lower tip draw a short circle touching it. At the top tip draw a circle a bit larger than the previous one. It should look like it is continuous with the slanting line. In between these two circles draw a circle larger than both. Now erase unwanted portions of the circles.

Drawing B

Draw a vertical line. Starting from the tips of this line draw two same sized circles with the line passing through the centres of the circles. Erase unwanted portions of the circles.

Drawing b

Draw a vertical line. Starting from the centre of the line draw a short circle. The line should pass through the centre of the circle. Erase unwanted portions to the left

Drawing C

Draw a large circle. Erase unwanted portions to the right.

Drawing c

Similar to C but with a shorter circle.

Drawing D

Draw a vertical line. Let it be the diameter of the circle that is to be drawn. Erase unwanted portions to the left of the figure.

Drawing d

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its bottom tip draw a short circle. The line should pass through the centre of the circle. Erase unwanted portions to the right. This is opposite to b.

Drawing E

Draw a vertical line: |. Draw three horizontal lines all on the right side. One goes on top, one in the middle, one on bottom

Drawing e

Draw a short circle. Draw a horizontal line through the centre of the circle.. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing F

Draw an E but erase the bottom horizontal line.

Drawing f

Draw a vertical line. From its top tip draw a short circle. The circle should just touch the line. Draw a short horizontal line at the bottom tip of the circle. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing G

Draw a large circle and a tiny circle from the same starting point. Extend a short horizontal line towards the left. From its left tip draw a short vertical line downwards. Erase unwanted portions of the two circles.

Drawing g

Draw a short vertical line. Draw a short circle starting from the top tip. The line should pass through the centre of the circle. Draw another circle starting from the bottom tip which should just touch the circle. Erase the unwanted portions of both the circles.

Drawing H

Draw two vertical lines next to each other with some distance between them: | |. Then, draw a horizontal line in the middle, connecting them: H.

Drawing h

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its middle draw a short circle just touching the line. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing I

Draw a vertical line: |. If desired, draw two short horizontal lines at the top and bottom of the vertical line, placing them so the vertical line connects them in the middle of the horizontal lines.

Drawing i

Draw a vertical line. Draw a dot like circle atop it.

Drawing J

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its bottom tip draw a small circle just touching it. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing j

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its bottom tip draw a small circle just touching it. Draw a dot like circle atop it. Erase unwanted portions of the lower circle.


Drawing K

Draw a vertical line. Then, draw two lines, starting from the right hand side, each beginning from the middle. One angles up, the other angles down.

Drawing k

Similar to K but shorter in size.

Drawing L

Draw a vertical line. Then draw a shorter, horizontal line on the bottom right.

Drawing l

This is way too simple. Just draw a vertical line.

Drawing M

Draw two vertical lines next to each other with some distance between. Then, starting from the inner, top tips, draw two shorter angled lines that touch midway.

Drawing m

Draw three short vertical lines like this: | | |. Draw two short circles in between the lines just touching them similar to this: |O|O|. Erase unwanted portions of the circles.

Drawing N

Draw two vertical lines next to each other with some distance between. Then draw a line that starts from the inner top tip of the left line, and angle it so that it touches the other line, on the inner bottom tip.

Drawing n

Draw two short vertical lines with some distance between. Draw a short circle in between similar to: |O|. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing O

Draw a large circle.

Drawing o

Draw a small circle.

Drawing P

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its top draw a circle so that the line passes through the centre of the circle. Erase the unwanted portions to the left.

Drawing p

Similar to P but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing Q

Draw a large circle. From its centre draw a short slanting line angled downwards: \.

Drawing q

Similar to p but the right side of the figure should be erased.

Drawing R

Similar to P but from the middle of the line draw a short slanting line angled downwards: \.

Drawing r

Draw a vertical line. Draw a short circle just touching the right side of the line. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing S

Draw two large circles, one atop the other. Erase unwanted portions of both the circles.

Drawing s

Similar to S but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing T

Draw a vertical line. Then, draw a shorter horizontal line on top.

Drawing t

Draw a vertical line. Starting from its bottom tip draw a small circle just touching the right. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing U

Draw two short vertical lines with some distance in between. Draw a small circle touching the bottom tips of both lines. Erase unwanted portions of the circle.

Drawing u

Similar to U but smaller in dimensions. If needed draw a short vertical line touching the right side of the figure

Drawing V

Draw two slanting lines next to each other with the left one angled to the right and the right one to the left:\/.

Drawing v

Similar to V but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing W

Draw two V’s next to each other.

Drawing w

Similar to W but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing X

Draw one slanting line heading up and right: / and draw another slant line up and leaning left: \

Drawing x

Similar to X but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing Y

Draw a small v. From the meeting point draw a short vertical line pointing downwards.

Drawing y

Similar to Y but smaller in dimensions.

Drawing Z

Draw a short horizontal line, then from the left tip of this line, a slanting line angled towards the left: / then a horizontal line to the right.

Drawing z

Similar to Z but smaller in dimensions.

Completed alphabets

How to correct minor errors?

Using ‘Eraser which is obvious and ‘Pencil’

Where it can be used?

It can be used to make logos just like I did. It can also be used for educational purposes such as teaching alphabets. Writing text on images. And many other uses.

My opinion

Most people, when they associate text with MS Paint, they usually think about the ‘Text’ tool. But I think using this method was more fun. The alphabets look neat and they can be made more attractive by filling in the colours of your choice.

Do you often insert text box whenever you want to add alphabets to the image?

      Still experimenting with this. It actually is getting easier all the time. I wanted to come back to this hub to tell you. Thanks for giving me the courage to try my hand at it again.

      A very interesting idea. You make me want to try my hand at it. My son was always good at using it in ways you describe. I just never thought I could do it. Thank you for the instruction.

      Thank you for this very useful hub. I appreciate all the work that you did to create it. I've never thought of using a paint program to create a logo, but your hub shows that it's a great idea.
