Teach Me To Draw Visual Novel Stuff In GIMP(Paid slightly)

#1 Post by nerdy » Tue Jun 10, 2014 5:38 pm

Hello, people of lemma! I need your help! You see, I would like to start drawing and doing Visual Novel Commissions using GIMP...Sadly, my art is awful. So I need someone to teach me! I will explain the job here :

Job :
1) You will tell me your drawing process in GIMP and what GIMP tools you use.
2) After I draw something, you will trace correction lines over it (For each drawing you place correction lines on, you get $0.30)

Requirements :
1) You are willing to correct/draw/look at my NSFW art.


An example of my art (NSFW) :

I could possibly help you if you like, but I use FireAlpaca (it's free, so no worries there), not GIMP. I find GIMP good for effects and add ons rather than actually drawing.

I prefer the pronouns xe, xem, xirself, etc., but what ever you use is cool with me.

Sorry, it has to be GIMP. :(

Ah that's too bad. I haven't used GIMP for actual drawing in years, especially since I got a tablet. Welp, I hope you can find someone to help you in strictly GIMP areas. On the other hand, if you just want some art improving tutorials, I know a few I can link you to.

Well, I draw in GIMP...
But, there's nothing much that's special though it can be a pain sometimes.
I would just say, use different layers and use the paintbrush-thing (anti-alias, I think?).
If you want a blend-y effect somewhere, I guess use the smudge tool.
(pretty sure that it's at the bottom of the tools list, a hand-like thing?)

For the most part, you probably just have to work on drawing more
Be it doodles on paper or working around with your mouse,
...practice makes perfect, unless it's bad practice.
I recommend to observe people in real life...for like proportions, etc.
And~ yea, art tutorials are good too~

I can redline.
I use photoshop though (from my experience it's pretty much the same with a few different names for things)
I'm offering commissions!

OK! Send me a quick redline of the linked picture! If it's what I'm looking for, you got the job!
