Here's a Clover I made in Gimp. I wanted it to have a "painted look". I had tried to get that look many ways but It just didn't look right. I decided to actually paint a clover, scan it it, and work with that. I think that some things just can't be made on a computer. However, I did do some editing to my clover. I made it more "green", and I added a little Oil blur to it. I am posting my png. image so you can use it to! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is a tube or pipe I made using a software called Gimp. I made it to look like the ones in the New Super Mario Bros video game. While making it, I learned a lot about shadows. Shadows are very important for this project because a tube is round, not flat. With Gimp it is easy to make two dimensional pictures with no shadows, but I wanted to learn how to make things look more three dimensional. I would advise having a reference picture when making a difficult picture. Lighting is also important, knowing where the light is coming from helps you know where to put the shadows. Also in this post I am including my .png tube picture so you can use it too. Just please comment and let me know!
