ok my first tutorial ever (please go easy on me)!!! This is part 1 of three. my goal is to help you understand gimp a little better or have an alternative to another art program.
if the picture is too big then download it, if still too big save it and open it up in an art program.
part 2 is on the way and ill provide a link once its complete. let me know if you need help, never hesitate to ask but first see if i answered your question in the tips section of the tutorial.
oh and happy holidays.
