What does she do?
Some people might think I am some kind of nut...
   
my shrinks verify this to be true.

But What am I up to when I am not making tutorials here?
           
I play an online game called Guild Wars and I use the GIMP to touch up my screenshots.

xD cool Wendy, if you want to smooth some of the outlines, you can fuzzy select the background then shrink the selection a little and apply blur (guassian...) to it.

For the one with the space in the middle of the legs, you can just fuzzy select the space and grow the selection a little.

RE: What does she do?
Thanks guys, I believe the best is Su Doku Jedi (my dervish with the scythe) in the center. I can't take all the credit, after all this is a screen shot from a video game. However the HD graphics used in this game are incredible. The beauty of the game allows you through a command line switch to save the screen shots in bitmap format.

I push the resolution up as high as my PC allows which is 2720x1536, because I am removing the background I don't use the AA (maybe that is a mistake) but the settings allow for 2x 3x and 4x. The AA at 4x looks great but makes it very difficult to remove the character.

I often use "tricks" like standing next to a wall of solid gray or white. The hardest part about getting a good screen shot with any game is the game camera often sucks. I sometimes trust a friend to take the shot from first person and email me the results.

After I get the shot is it a matter of cleaning it up to make it more than real.

I have 8 of these characters on my wiki page in the link below. I am not promoting the game just the artwork is fantastic.
