Fiona- I've managed to figure out how to roughly line something in GIMP, but the line gets all wobbly and doesn't look like the crisp lineart I see on DA. That's first on my list, and then after that is how to color something without making it look like a little kid scribbled on it.

 

After that, transparency and how to use layers would be nice @.@ Paint is so siiiimple why does GIMP have to be so haaaaard?

Ok, a couple tips on making lines. One thing you can do is hold the shift key to make a straight line from the last point you clicked. This can quickly make fairly smooth lines around things. Another is to use the path tool and selection tools and under the Edit menu, choose Stroke Path or Stroke Selection. I use my tablet to make lines, and it does get wobbly, but I keep a hand close to the undo keys, and make short strokes so there's not as much to undo if I'm not happy with the line.

 

The one I actually use most of the shift key.

My stab at an avatar... ice dragon and nest ^^ (We are still able to submit these things, right?)

 

Made on GIMP ^^ Hopefully the dragon doesn't look too wonky, I was working with 400% zoom...

I like it, Dr. Paine

 

ETA: hey, on the Gimp tips thing? Is it a problem if I post those here, or should we go elsewhere? I don't want to hijack the thread. However, Jasi might not be the only one who'd like to figure out how to use the Gimp.

Thanks xd.png I was kind of worried that my non-detailed thing would be a bit out of place among the detailed stuff...

@Nakase: Yep, I decided to visit the forum again. I'm still just a lurker, but I should be appearing here and there more often. </off topic>

 

Got an icon done. smile.gif It's just a quick doodle I pulled out of my butt, but I guess it's okay.

I am, but that doesn't mean people can't work on their own renditions of my creations. :3

You're wrong about the dragons. The only thing I did to Magi was resize it. Guardian is the only dragon in the cave that is at all "mine".

Sorry PF13 was going off of the bottom of the credits page. I thought that you had a bigger role in the Magi than that.
