How to select an egg-shaped region
hi guys
i'm trying to make a sprite of an egg for a project of mine, but i can't exactly get it to an 'egg' shape. i use the elipse selection tool to choose a region, but i've played around with the options a little bit and can't seem to get it. the only way i can seem to get a relatively egg-like shape is if i carefully shave off the edges of the upper part of it, but then it's not as symmetrical as i'd like it to be.
i've been using gimp for some time now and have relatively good experience with it, but this is one part where i'm stuck at.
This is the picture of what i have done so far. personally i think it looks fine, i just need to fix it's shape.
help greatly appreciated Smile

RE: How to select an egg-shaped region
How about starting with a photo of an egg and finding/using its edge with an edge-finder filter?
