There are a lot of tutorials out on “t3h 1nt3rw3bZ” that show various different filter effects in GIMP and specifically how to do cartoon-like effects. That said, none of the ones that I came across on my search, nay trek, bore visually pleasing fruit … at least not for me.
So, as I usually do when I’m waisting time when I should be marking student assignments or more importantly, spending time with my wife and new daughter, I decided to start playing in GIMP and after many failed attempts I came across what I deemed to be a sort of graphic art-like effect; it’s not necessarily cartoon-like, but it is cartoony and I liked the effect and decided to write it down.
Of course I realized that I would probably lose the sheet of paper I wrote these set of steps down onto and so decided that I would use Linus Torvalds’ philosophy which is:
“Only wimps use tape backup: real men just upload their important stuff on ftp, and let the rest of the world mirror it ;)”
This isn’t FTP, but it’s the same idea no doubt. 🙂
