How to capture mouse input as freehand sketch then save to bmp file?

(OP)
Hi all,

Anybody here who can help me in developing a freehand drawing program?
The pen would be the mouse while the paper would be a small window with a with background.
I would like to capture the mouse coordinates, translate it into freehand lines, then save it to a bitmap file.
I am having difficulty in dealing with graphics.
The saving into a bitmap file is way to hard for me to figure out.

Regards,

wcglorioso
