View Full Version : HarHar I still suck with gimp



-gabe-noob-
October 3rd, 2010, 09:58 PM
But I want to make backgrounds with it again! If anyone remembers me, a couple years ago I had a thread to make custom backgrounds via gimp for people, they were usually abstract, and bad. But hey, they were a way for me to get better at gimping, so if anyone wants a bad noobtastic background, provide me with two colors, preferably ones that agree, and a screen resolution and I'll see what I can do. attached are two images of stuff I've done in the past hour.

EDIT: NEWER STUFF TOWARDS THE BACK. STILL WANT TO MAKE SOME BACKGROUNDS PEOPLE!! :D

NOTE: I am bad at gimping and background making, I just like doing this.

Also: If this is in the wrong forum tell me, but last time I had this thread running it was in community cafe!

<3's from the returning noob.

Edit: Adding two pictures I've made in the past that I like

Trying to find a way to thumbnail, if I can't I'll just use image shack I guess. And here's yours nightwish.

As for where I learned to do this, there's a nifty website called gimp-tutorials.net that has a few guides, I read one of them then just started playing around with gimp a lot.

EDIT: Success, but is it alright if I used their large thumbnail option? I can go smaller but I kind of don't want to.

-gabe-noob-
October 26th, 2010, 01:35 AM
I use gimp; the smoke effects are from brushes that I've downloaded off the Internet , same with the artsy images i print on the background.

Other than that, the lighting effects to the hard lines is a combination of blurs of the solid colors over a layer of white under it.

I just apply techniques I learn from different tutorials at gimp-tutorials.net.

Especially helpful is the one that says it will teach how to make a mac-like background via gimp.

I like your work. It's very good. :D

How about a wallpaper with purple, blue and white colors, perhaps in a neon light style? My resolution is 1366x768, but if you made it higher than that (like up to 1920x1080...), then I'd be able to use a higher-res one when I get a better monitor soon...:D

You're very good at gimping. I have a quick question: are you willing to disclose the location of that "smokey" brush you found? I'd like to experiment with that brush and see if I could use it for some game textures for my (unfortunately Windows-based) game I'm working on.

very nice again, however. I'm seriously considering swapping to from neon blue to green LEDs in my case, it'd make the awesomeness complete.

most photoshop brushes will work on gimp, I think I was using these smokey ones. Sorry again; leave of absence from the forums. I'll have some new work up soon.

Yea, believe it was, try something with a Dark Green & Mildly Dark Purple. lol And good luck with that one.

Oh yea my screen rezz is 1024x768

Gabe, that background is great! Scarily enough, that's nearly exactly how I imagine it when I described the colors. Are you psychic? :P

I would love something at 2560x1024, preferably with not much happening on the far right or the middle.
Deep blue or black and silver are preferable.
Thanks in advance if you make it.

I really like the third one down. Your GIMP skills are far better than mine.
I like GIMP, but I don't find it the most intuitive program int he world. I wish they would put out a version with a single window (instead of multiple tool windows).

They had that built in at one time. The option to have a single windowed UI that is. I got so used to using the multiple UI I havent noticed if the other option was still there. As far as intuitiveness.. I think its great, but then again I have been using it for over 12 years, so its not fair for me to make an assessment. But then again, PShop is hell for me to use.. lol

EDIT: Looks like they did remove the option for the single UI.

I am useless at all things image editing beyond the very basic cropping etc so if anyone knows any resources that would help me learn gimp that would be fantastic. It is something I have always meant to learn but never got around to it

Yep Youtube.. Best way to learn is to watch videos of someone showing you.

I also like them..I don't know why you are putting yourself down for.
Go over to the SimplyMepis forum,I bet they would like one.

Linux Graphics Users is a great place to get help as well.

If you're looking for ideas, maybe you could do a nature/New Zealand themed one around a Koru https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=koru&tbm=isch&tbs=imgo:1&biw=1249&bih=849

Possible inspired by this http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_d_ebiMlaib0/TMFme0Mp9rI/AAAAAAAAAFU/yQ8frSTqMMY/s1600/debian.jpg

And maybe at 2560x1024 :D
