Check this out , i made a console version of MS Paint :p . It's not as good ofcourse. In fact , it uses 4-bit colors only , dots look bulky (represented by cells) and its only capable of clearing the screen , drawing and erasing.
You can download it from here :
(ZIP file contains source code and EXE)

It's useless but kinda fun to mess with.
If you wanna learn Win32 console programming , i suggest reading Adrian's tutorial. I made this program once i finished reading it , and it was pretty simple. (thanks Adrian :))
Thanks for your time,
For the 16th colour, you need to specify BACKGROUND_RED | BACKGROUND_GREEN | BACKGROUND_BLUE in SetConsoleTextAttribute. It should give you a light grey. ;)
well ... light gray doesn't seem so necessary :p
