Hello, MTSers! Grab your brushes, boot up MS Paint, and prepare to paint your best happy little trees for MTS Movie Night Paint Night!

In a couple weekends we'll be hosting a Bob Ross paint-along and watching party in our Discord text chat server. We're hoping this will be a great chance for everyone to meet new people, get to know our chat system (if it's your first time), and also make some art.

Paint Night? What's that??
Myself and some of the other staff members will be doing a live paint-along with several episodes of Bob Ross: The Joy of Painting. Everyone is welcome to use whatever medium they want, be it real physical paint or something digital.

However, to make things more interesting, we are encouraging everyone to try painting only on computer using a mouse, and using only the most basic painting program that exists for their respective operating systems. For me, this is MS Paint! We'd love for you to join our adventures in trying to make beautiful landscape paintings using only the most primitive, frustrating tools available. At the end we can all share our results, and see what sorts of beauty and hilarity ensue!

Don't feel like painting? You can also watch! I (and possibly some other staff members) will be livestreaming my painting process on Twitch, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy me scrambling to paint the subtle majesties of nature using only a %$*&%! mouse. I'll post details in livechat on the day of the event.

Where & When

Saturday, September 16th
First session (Two episodes, approximately 30 minutes each) - 5 PM UTC / 7 PM CEST / 1 PM EDT | Time Zone Converter
Second session (Two episodes, approximately 30 minutes each) - 11 PM UTC / 1 AM CEST (September 17th) / 7 PM EDT (September 16th) | Time Zone Converter

The chatting will take place in our Discord server, which you can join here. On the day of the watch party we will create a "Paint Night" channel dedicated to this event, so make sure to choose it from the Text Channel options.

How it works

First thing's first: The show is legally available on youtube! Hooray! Check it out here. I'll be posting the episode selections on the day of the event.

On the day of the streaming we will be offering for download digital "canvases" for some episodes which begin with basic paints applied to the canvas. This just gives you a good "starting place" for your art.

We will also be offering pre-selected palettes for each episode, for those who don't feel confident about picking colours on the fly.

To coordinate everyone, we will be doing a text countdown in chat to synchronise our start times.

To ensure that you have time to get the resources offered above and are prepared for the countdown, please show up at least ten minutes early, to ensure we all start at the same time. If you arrive after we've started, you'll have to figure out the sync for yourself.

The meadows are in bloom:
who has ever seen such insolence?

And if anyone is skeptical that it can be done in MS Paint using only a mouse, I present my masterpiece:

Hell yeah, I'm totally doing this.
Digital though, and in the only image editor that doesn't make me tear my hair out: GIMP. I promise I won't use any of the fancy features.
See you guys then.

By the way, any idea where I can see Beauty Is Everywhere? NL Netflix doesn't have it, and YouTube's never heard it.

@GrijzePilion - I did some digging around/searching and realized, much to my delight, that there is a legal, legit Bob Ross youtube channel that posts full episodes of his show under its other name, "The Joy of Painting". You can check it out here! I'll confirm which episodes we'll be painting along to on the day, since I'm pre-choosing them for ease of painting with a mouse.

Awesome, thanks. I knew the Joy of Painting eps were up on YouTube, but I didn't know Beauty is Everywhere is grouped in there as well. Then again, I'd never heard of that show until just now...

Yay! This is actually at a reasonable time for me!
Though I'll surely make a crappy painting, but, oh well. Maybe I can mod it into my game LOL.

Not sure I'll be able to attend BUT - this is something I need to try out anyway. I'm left handed but can't use a mouse left handed. So me painting with a mouse right handed should be interesting....

Hi

This looks like fun. I'm gonna try and remember to show up. Never used the live chat nor tried to "paint" with paint. New things- Yay!

Beautiful work, both of you.

Just found out I won't be able to join, because of course I won't. There's always something that pops up at the last fucking moment. At least it's not work this time, but I was really looking forward to this.

Oh Bob Ross. I remember watching later episodes on PBS back in the '90s. I loved the soothing music. Here it is from Soundcloud:

Not my kind of 80s production music, but it certainly is an iconic tune.

I did something based on "Ebony Sunset" (Season 1, Episode 3) but can't seem to find the image paste button. I'll try again later.
