Some Ways To Make Jewellery In GIMP

Post#1 by oldmangrumpy » 06 Jul 2017, 09:53


In response to overwhelming demand (well one request anyway) these are the first in a series of tutorials on how I make jewellery images in GIMP.

There are ZIP files below containg 3 separate tutorials and some resources (brushes & e-map) either used in those tuorials or for free use.

Tutorial 1 is about making a custom chain link style brush. Other similar brushes as shopwn in the image below are included in the resources ZIP.
Tiutorial 2 uses that brush to make the necklace pictured below.
Tutorial 2a shows how I make the 'soft' presentation settings holding the jewellery.

As always my tuts are detailed and step driven; hopefully they are accurate. However, I always feel proof reading my own work is fraught with error, so if anybody has any problems or finds errors, then contact me please.
