Made this with Gimp





Kirbyssj


I was just testing out what i could do with gimp, I know it's not that funny but I got a little bit of a kick making it.
(Btw it was going to be my avatar thats why its so small (100x100)

Hey, if you enjoyed making it then that's great... first and foremost, Art should be about doing something for the Artist. Smile

Well, personally I would have removed the background first, and possibly added Vader's cape. Great work for beginning with the GIMP, though. It can be hard to use at first.

Thanks, I'm still trying to figure out how the layer system works with Gimp because it seems a bit different than photoshop and keeps auto merging my layers when I don't want it to X_X.

I have often wondered why "free" programs have such complex interfaces. Gimp has a learning curve thats quite steep and I wont even talk about Blender. That has the UI from hell.

Usually lil free programs are bit better then their big brothers Wink from Autodesk... Instead of millions menu scripts you have only things you need, like Wings 3d and box modeling.

Mainly because of their extremely modular construction, relative lack of direction in making the UI, and the fact that there's nobody being paid to make it look nice, while everyone who works on it of course already knows how to use every feature.

First off i just wanted to say that your pice is a nice start. I also wanted to say if you find photoshop easier to use, you might try gimpshop. I myself have not yet tried it, but I have heard good things about it, from some of my friends. Good luck, keep up the good work.

"GIMPshop is a modification of the free/open source graphics program GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), intended to replicate the feel of Adobe Photoshop." (from wikipedia)
