Colorizing with the GIMP 2.6.0

A few months ago I sketched The Vision but I left it in B&W mode. Today, while trying the new GIMP 2.6.0 release, I decided to actually use GIMP more extensively and colorize the image. Then, I used the “cartoon” effect and the “canvas” plugin, to make it look like it was on magazine paper. I like GIMP’s interface much more than in the past, I must say. It wasn’t difficult to do what I needed, I like what I see so far.

The Vision

I am thinking of putting my sketching ability into some good use: do about 30-35 sketches of a story, colorize them with the GIMP, and then incorporate in it some live shots of a rock band. And produce a pretty cool music video. Just an early bird thought.

Update: The feel-good timeframe for Gimp didn’t last too long — as expected. I will revisit it in 2 more years.
