NOOB all the way around
Hello, I'm Steven...totally new to GIMP and art in general. I love fantasy and digital art of all sorts, and am tired of just admiring it and would like to begin to learn how to create some of my own. I've begun by doing renders and text/photo manipulations, and while I expect I won't become an "Artist" in a day or even a year or two, I'd like to learn and practice the basics as often as I can. If anyone is inclined to show a complete NOOB the ins and outs, I'd be very grateful. Thanx.

RE: NOOB all the way around
Welcome Steven!
First, to learn about most of the tool on gimp, go to their online manual site at
Quick search tip: You can google a specific tool on the site by typing the name of the tool + doc.gimp into the search bar. EXAMPLE:
"clone tool doc.gimp"
then any result with a green address(URL) of "" is what you want.

After, check out the "Important threads" section at the top of the tutorial section here:
*This will be important to self-troubleshoot any issues you have, then if you have a specific problem that isn't solved through these threads you can ask on the forum.

Then I noticed you like fantasy, our skilled friend, Wendy has made some really cool space-scifi tutorials, here are a couple:

I need more SPACE! - by Wendy

A bit more thurough tutorial, but really neat effects!
lava planet tutorial - by Wendy
