GIMP: First Project – Drawing Technique

GIMP Project Level: Beginnergimp-apress.gif

The completed first project is taken from the book Beginning GIMP: From Novice To Professional Copyright by Akkana Peck, APRESS.

The image below (tree) is the preview of the drawing project that I finished by following the instruction.


As far as I am concerned, there are at least three parts for this project. First part is how to draw the tree. The second part is drawing a box. The third part is planting the tree in the box.

The author was right. Drawing a tree as she puts it;

“is fairly simple and doesn’t require a lot of art experience”

and most of all the techniques used for this drawing are valuable skills for a starting GIMP user.
