Is freeee!

The oddshots image of the girl was done in gimp.  The original was yellow without a tatoo and with champagne in the glass.

gimp is pretty good for a free software, I use it too sometimes.

but for work that needs a 'finer' touch I usually rely on photoshop CS 3. I'm pretty familiar with it, since I need it for work, too. Especially for things that should have print quality, gimp is not the ideal solution... but for pics that are used online gimp is awesome... and easy to understand, too.

The thing is, since I have to do a lot of picture editing and stuff for work, it kind of lost its appeal as hobby to me :D funny that.

Kate Fan Art
« Reply #16 on: May 10, 2010, 10:51:25 pm »
Hello everyone, I haven't been on this forum in MONTHS- got lost for a while. I once asked if I could post a little fan art but then lost the sketch.
I've since found it after a major cross country move. So here it is... my first attempt at fan art.
I am actually a some time illustrator and full time artist. My work doesn't tend to be realistic... but I really wanted to try this out.
I chose the scene of Kate stepping into the darkness to meet Curran for the first time.
let me know what you think...

It sure is an impressive scene. I've been trying to wrap my head around Currans beast form again and again. Blue, that's almost what my mind came up with in the end :D I love it!

As for programs, I've used both Gimp and Photoshop CS2. They're amazing, especially if you know what you are doing. Which I don't *cough*. Should probably try to teach myself some more.

I did a test with an image editing software...


And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
But I don't know how

Because maybe
You're gonna be the one that saves me ?
And after all
You're my wonderwall...

I'm really impressed by this software, not that I'd be any good on it but I'll leave it to the experts!  wOrshiP
