Added jump links on page. Placed section 1 of paths tutorial, now adding second part. Should all be up tonight, only have to write it, already have art work done. Once this is up I have old tutes that I will rewrite and place up on not only Gimp but also Inkscape that’s where using the path tool comes in handy. It’s funny back in 1993 I did a short 2 night course in Photoshop, using pen tool and loved it. The compositers that ran the show made it look easy. At that time I was tutoring Airbrushing and Screen-printing, Tshirt and Poster printing. Using it for original lettering deep etching shapes (imported images) or just drawing original artwork with them. I better get back to putting up the next section.

Started work yesterday on Paths tutorial for Gimp , but also suitable for other graphic programs, the way the pen, path or curves tool works is the same. Prepared graphics and text but need to find anchor or jump links in creation in WordPress. Looking for online tutorials now.
Last night started putting up Dolphin Tutorial for Gimp. The tutorial is basically starting with a pencil drawing, use path tool to deep etch the image, add color to the dolphin. Adding waves and sky keeping it simple. Generously, I also have added a pencil drawing link, to download the pencil drawing of the dolphin. dolphin tutorial click here
I will also add a tutorial for the Path Tool, and other little tutorials to add to this first tutorial. As I wrote the tutorial while recreating the image, I may have missed some things. Hopefully all the added mini tutorials, will be added, before any-one finishes the dolphin. Will add more on wave creating with brushes and using brushes to deepen the sky effect.
A fun way of turning hand drawings into coloured digital art.
Still haven’t posted my new tutorials, but instead started a page with links to Open Source Projects, around art, animation and photography. I hope you find these useful, in time I will add site and information links to each one. Support to Open Source is important if we want community supported software.
