    Now if you don't know what a pixel car is then here,

    pixel cars is a sub-artform of pixel art that is, you guessed it, cars. There should three views, front, side, and rear; but more views are acceptable (top, open engine/doors/trunk/etc, 3/4) they have no perspective and are made pixel by pixel in MS Paint. if made in PS using tools like blur, it is no longer considered a pixelcar.

    there are two styles, scaled: which are scaled to the actuall cars (mostly made with blueprints) and follow the basic rule of thumb: 1in=1pixel.

    the other style is kk, or kurukuru (named after the creater of pixelcar's username): they are squished like mine below. They have less shades than scaled (scaled ranges from 6 shades or more give or take, kk is usually 4 or 5 shades). kk were the first pixel cars and are still just as popular as scaled.

    basically it goes like this, a pixelcar artist makes a base (stock car). then another pixel car artist will make a tune (customised car) out of that base by doing stuff like making body kits and using rims that usually are also made by other pixelcar artists. anything used in a tune that was not created by the tuner must be credited, base included.

    and that is basically what a pixelcar is. official site: pixelcars.com


    and here is mine of bumblebee. the robot was made completely by scratch in MS Paint. The actuall pixelcar is basically the stock base with diferent rims and bb's paintjob.

    This has just as much to do with Mspaint, as a hammer that makes great chairs. I'm always amazed what some people are capable of. I would not have the patience to draw some thing pixel by pixel. I did it once for a skin on a quake 2 model. Never do I want to do that again :)
