Ho do I make smooth wavy lines?
When I do something other then straight lines, my freehand looks kind of shaky.

RE: How to make smooth wavy lines?
you could try the smooth-path plugin
http://registry.gimp.org/node/20069
The zip file contains the windows smooth-path.exe (32 bit) and the source if you need to compile for linux. It goesin your local .gimp-2.x/plug-ins folder
Look a bit bit down the page for a link to a windows 64 bit version.

Everything in one screen shot, normally just one path at a time.
1. Using the path tool to make the line in straight sections.
2. Apply the smooth-path plugin. It is a right-click in paths dialog context thingy.
It is still a path and can be edited, click on the nodes to move them around.
3.When happy with it, stroke the path 'Edit -> 'Stroke Path' to produce the line.
