Actually its nothing like that and It is aparent that you havent used a recent version. I am not- and I will not say that GIMP is better than PS, or vice-versa... But they do easily stand side by side. When it gets down to which one are you going to use, well then it becomes a matter of personal taste. I like them both. I have CS2, and will probly upgrade to CS3, BUT, I'm not going to stop using the GIMP, and upgrading it because it is a damn good program, and I am just giving recognition where it is due. I've seen it...and done it. I'd put the GIMP against ps any day, my GIMP images come out just as good (and usualy better) than images done in PS. It's just a matter of technique. Just like someone's technique in ps could possibly school me. Its a tool. When you start talking like that, and "experience on a resime" all you're doing there is just talking elitist [censored]. Its not better because you spent 700 dollars on it. It's not better because you use a Wacom tab. They are just tools. Some people are just afraid that a free, openscorce program may be just as good as the program they just spent 700 bucks on, and feel a bit defensive and insecure. Both the GIMP and PS are very good programs. In many ways equal, in other ways PS is better and in other ways, GIMP is better. But in the end they are only tools, and the only thing that matters is how YOU use them.

I have CS2 and the GIMP, and and I do all my coloring, linework, layering ect in the GIMP. The only reason I still keep PS around is that some of the brushes and filters are diffrent and... well, I paid a [censored] for it. ;P
I have to ask does GIMP use the same style for coloring as CS3, because the way it works in cs3 doesn't work for me, but that is why i am trying to fins Adobe Photoshop Elements which my school uses with Adobe Illustrator for computer graphics. Or is there a way to change the way the paint works in CS3, I don't like how going over a color darkens it more.

Elements is nasty, i cant find the pen tool... Provided it even exists.
One thing that annoys me is that i have CS and the brushes have gone up the wall so i had to remake them... :roll:

A flash based site that shows the human body in various poses, without skin. You can spin the selected figure around for different angles and such. Pretty handy if, for whatever reason life-drawing classes are out of reach.

AHEM..

I found a really good artist named mark crilley who does videos on youtube.

His username is markcrilley and he does quite a few 'how-to' videos. I even got my hands improved! It sort of just... slid into place.

Here are 10 Websites to Help You Master GIMP for those who want to use the GIMP, for whatever reason (usually cost :-) ).

I have absolutely nothing to do with the Cartoon Network "Uncle Grandpa" shows. Didn't even know it existed until today... and I sure wouldn't pick that name now I've seen one of them.

Thank you very much, both UncleGrandpa and Blind. Though we need to learn a lot by ourself, are these sites pretty good.

actually, not trying to be all know-it-all and such, but well, marc crilley does a lot of stuff very well, but his wings... also, not anatomically correct. :shock:

perhaps i should add my humble attempt at creating a small tut for wings.
