We'll be going from this to this
No brushes, no textures just you and the Gimp.
Helpful or Confusing?
I'd appreciate hearing what you think or seeing what you come up with :)
Image and Layer heavy.....
Step #1: Depending on your base this may be optional but with most of my bases I use Auto-Levels (Layers>Colors>Levels>Click Auto)
Step #2: Open a new transparent layer and flood fill with the color #c9e0ff, set the layer mode to Overlay and the opacity to 47%
Step #3: Open another new transparent layer and flood fill with #ebc1ff, set the layer mode to Burn at 47% opacity
Step #4: Open a new transparent layer and flood fill with #1acf51, set the layer mode to Overlay at 47% opacity
Step #5: Open another new transparent layer and flood fill with #f9d287, set the layer to Burn at 77% opacity
That's it for the coloring and such, now for the background. This might be a little tricky depending on your own base.
Step #6: Using the free hand selection or lasso tool, just in case your confused
I outlined everything that wasn't Knoxville and used Gaussian Blur. (Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur)
I set both the Vertical and Horizontal at 7.
If you can't get it just the way you want try using the smudge tool to fix your promblem areas.
I sharpened it up a little here...Set at 17
And I used Softglow (w/out Sharpen)....Glow Radius: 1, Brightness: 27, Sharpness at 77
And that's it.
