Here’s a requested tutorial on how to blend in GIMP by playing with the opacity of the brush. I think this method is great if you like a more painterly style and still use a hard edge brush to paint.
I received a couple requests for a tutorial on making circular roleplaying icons, I’m aware of a couple methods but this one is my preferred (and the simplest in my opinion) way of doing it.
This is another tutorial that should easily be applied easily to Gimpshop.
Open your base icon; for how to make a base icon read this tutorial here.
If you have a psd to apply this is the time to do it.
You’re going to go to Layer > New > New Layer and create a new transparent layer, then after you unlock your base layer by dragging the little lock symbol to the tiny trashcan you’re going to need to move the base layer on top of the transparent one.
Now using the Ecliptical Marquee Tool make a 100 x 100 (or whatever size icon you’re doing) circle and center it on your top layer like below:
Using right click the middle of that circle and in the menu that opens chose Select Inverse. This will select the whole area outside the circle like in the image below:
This is the satisfying part where we hit delete and watch our icon take shape…Ta Da!
All that’s left to do is merge your layers and save as a .png and you have yourself a circle icon. I have this saved as an action for quicker use, it cuts my iconing in half.
I need someone to do a GIMP tutorial for the TS4 dollhouse. I really want to make some, but I legit don’t know how to edit shit. I’m new lol and GIMP is free. I don’t really like photoshop. Please, please, please. I would be so appreciative.
Tried something new in GIMP today -cause im to poor for photoshop- but I’m pleased with the way she came out!! 🥰
I glimpsed an anon a bit ago that was asking for help finding accent coverage with the Newer GIMP (aka the annoyingly overengineered one that I hate using)
HOPEFULLY your GIMP version is similar to mine, anon! I pray you can see the writing on these screenshots theyre a little blurry;;
If the mean number is 79 or under, its an Accent.
If the mean number is 80 or over, then it a Skin.
i’ve been trying for over a year to learn how to make edits and graphics (like the kind where you cut characters out/remove the background),usng the program and while i have a general idea of how to do some thngs, i want to learn more efficiently.
i’ve looked at all kinds of tutorials on here and you tube, and none really work for me personally because i’m unfamiliar with a lot of terms and just art stuff in general, since i’m more of a writer.
i know most people prefer using photoshop, but at the moment i can’t afford a subscription, nor can my computer hold it because it’s a chromebook with minimal disk space.
any tips/advice/resources etc you can offer or point me in the direction ofwould be greatly appreciated.
