Cartoon auto portrait
to those who saw my last post, it's the practice 4 of the book: Gimp2.6 CookBook.

I liked it, but I need to improve my drawing. I drew using the touchpad. I had never tried, I liked.

Look a little like the characters out of the cartoon series Rugrats. Really good for a touch pad! I like the Tree. Do you have a gradient for that, or did you layer it yourself?

I used a technique presented in the book mentioned above, GIMP2.6 Cookbook (M.Ferreyra,2011). The tools used were brush and smudge. First I painted the tree half green and half yellow. Then I used the same green but with lower opacity and attack the party in yellow, painting the frontiers between the green and yellow. Every advance in the yellow part was over lowering the opacity. Finally, i applied the smudge tool, with lower scale, in the mixed areas (green with lower opacity).

Sorry for some misses words, my primary language is portuguese and i used the google translator sometimes. =0
