My very first Wallpaper

Post by AKiRa121 »

Hope you like it, made it from a photograph I took in my garden, a beautiful green beetle.
I'd be very pleased if you are so nice to give me some feedback and advices to improve it.
Made it with Gimp.

Thanks both,
ibm450, I try a different tuto everyday, Gimp is not only versatile, but very easy to learn I think.
I recommend http://gimp-tutorials.net/

I hope I can participate in WOTM.
