    Default Help with GIMP

    So I have GIMP Portable. It's really complicated for me, so I just mess around with it to see if I can do anything. But most of my stuff ends up like crap, and I want to know how to use it to make great pics like this:



    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    protip: layers

    it really is that simple dude - learn how to use the layers & the world is your oyster! (well, in GIMPshop anyway... is GIMP portable extremely different to GIMPshop?)

    As Silburke said; layers are important. And you need to be able to draw well with the mouse, too (Not my strong suit xD). Otherwise, you can use official art for renders and such, but it won't be the same. Artistic drawing ability is the most important part.

    Be share to use blurs and shading/lighting too. That's key to great art.

    I don't know much about GIMP Portable, but if it's anything like GIMP 2, you're gonna need layers.

    Might want to try again, this time by typing in the text with a text box, pressing "Select by Colour", and stroking the resulting selection with that diagonal brush.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.
