Meet the GIMP #49: Making a Hat
As nothing catastrophic has happened this week I’ll continue trying to make simple graphics with GIMP. You see one of them on the left.
This is done with the selection tools, working with paths and gradient fills.
One tip: Always use layers. If in doubt, add a new layer and work on that. It gives you some of the flexibilty of a vector based program, you can move, rotate and scale parts of the image without much effort.
