GIMP Tutorial- Layers + Inking by SkittleBoo GIMP Tutorial- Layers + Inking by SkittleBoo
I DO NOT USE GIMP ANYMORE. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT. I'M SORRY.


I made this because I don't see many tutorials out there for GIMP that has to do with inking/layers. GIMP is a free photo manipulating program that is very close to Photoshop... but free! :D

Yay free!

Enjoy and use to your hearts content.

But this way, your lines all have an edge to it.
How about including a step to show how to make them well-rounded?

Why do you put the white layer? I mean what is it useful? :?

To hide the sketch under it. Plus it works for a background layer later on in the process.

I don't use GIMP anymore. Maybe your layer isn't showing, check your inking layer.

When you get to the part where you click on the 'eye', where is the eye? I cant find it! :lol:

It should be with your layers. It's the visibility option. You click it to "not see" a layer.
