Step 1: Pick Your Picture

This can be any image, you may have to just experiment with different pictures. Some work well, and some don't.

We'll be using a program called GIMP which is similar to Adobe Photoshop and can be downloaded for free here .

Save the File to your computer.

This is a picture of Omar Epps who plays Eric Foreman in House.

I tried following your instructions using an image of Rachel Weisz, but couldn't figure out how to do the final step with the layering of the top image. I have Gimp 2, so I don't know if that changes anything... but I could not find the Layers Box to save my life! It seems like one is supposed to pop up automatically (at least on yours) but I tried hunting mine down and still couldn't find it. :-(
Thank you. I've been playing around with this all night. Love that you chose Omar (he doesn't scare me)
Nice!
Excellent! great job!
Very Nice! Great use of GIMP!
i'm sorry, i like his character and all, but this pic seriously scares me
Omar Epps deserves to be in more Instructables. Nice work.
