A number 2 pencil.
Does it make colors? Only shades of grey, implied colors that will never be as colorful or powerful as true colors.
Does it make art?
I feel as though I am an artist, holding a pencil, with nothing else to work with. Where others have fancy game engine coders and an army of tools unique to their platforms, I have generic "catch all" tools that can do lots of things, but none of it as good as the unique ones.
Doesn't the number 2 pencil also have the same capability, however limited, to make new things?
I've got a few tools, Multimedia Fusion 2, Unity Engine, and paper. Not the same tools used by other professional artists, but tools that are rather flexible, if lacking in shine.
Can my number 2 pencil make art? I believe the answer is yes.
Am I capable of getting there?
I intend to find out, for better or worse.
