This was a core art piece for Cell I did last year:



Now after finishing a course in Gimp this was my final project:



It's not up to a Genji level of game designer art but I am so glad I took the time to take that class. I love graphic art but I am not a natural at it!

I strongly reccomend da Gimp!

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

Gimp is very good once you get over the learning curve as it is not desperately intuitive. But it's an amazingly powerful package considering the zero price.

I would like a good paper manual for it or a detailed dummies guide - can anyone recommend one?

I actually use gimpshop, which is GIMP hacked to have an interface very similar to photoshop. That way, prob. 90%+ of the published material (manuals, tutorials, etc) for photoshop can be used.

Heh heh...

Yeah, that first image has a sort of charm that appeals to me.

Still, I know it's always satisfying to learn stuff like that.

Good job.

And here is another card for Cell using similar methods. This is the neuro-hacker card. 1 card equals 1 Neuro point.



Time to get to work. Gonna illustrate Cell myself so wish me luck!

I want to take this class. I've fumbled around in GIMP and can use it for a few things, but for the most part I find it hard to use.
