    Also, one more thing Chesty. I only ever showed you that technique to hand draw muzzle flashes with splatter brushes, but I have found that by smoke brushes instead it can come out looking a lot more realistic. I could show you if you had the time at some point.
    Sounds great. You got a date, mate.

    Made a Resources section in the sticky and put this in it.
    Gracias amigo.

    You mean after the character has been isolated it has a white line around it? You are isolating too wide then. To fix it, use the "magic wand" and click outside your character on his layer. Then go to "selection/grow" and pick one or two pixels, and then press delete. That should hopefully fix it this time around. In the future though, you'll need to isolate closer to the character.
    fuck, it could be that i was CUTTING the selection instead of copying. rate be bad reading/dumb

    Dodging/Burning the blood by hand is kind of a waste of time imo. You can very easily just use Bevel and Emboss and achieve the same effect.

    Yes, but I like to avoid telling people to use filters like bevel/emboss because people tend to overdo it. Also, this is primarily a GIMP tutorial and, in GIMP, bevel/emboss removes the colour from a layer, making it more trouble that it's worth (it would take the same amount of time to apply the filter correctly and change the colour and brightness as it would to just quickly dodge and burn the blood).

    Ah, I didn't know that GIMP removed the colors from it.

    Gah you people think I live to serve you? There will be an update, I haven't given up on this but I'm a very busy person and this is a very busy time of the year. Although my post-count might deceive you, I do have a lot more going on than just this damn forum. Be patient my students, be patient.

    Next update is half-way done but it won't be finished today. It's on texturing (anyone comment "waaaah but I wanted to jump on the rim-lighting bandwagon 3 months late!" then you will get a box).

    That... little box? You mean in the layers window? Just click the picture and drag. I'm not sure what's up there.
