2. Make your paintbrush settings the same as mine below.

3. Set your foreground to: #004000

4. Start your pixel center of your working image.  Note if you don't see a number for pixels in the examples it means either 1 pixel or 2 you can tell my the length of the actuayl line.

Below are the starting points to  finish.  I did my outlinesin red so that you can see the difference.
