This is cool. I just made one, but skipped the last few steps because I thought they put it a little over the top. I'm probably going to make a few more and experiment. ;P Btw, I'm having some trouble posting pictures, so just look at my avatar for the finished product. :D
Yours is awesome!

Where the heck do you have filters?!?
Flumpkins7 years ago
which gimp do you have? Becuase I have no filters, and all of this is very confusing.

I think I have Gimp 2.4.4 but not sure about that. You should try that
I have Gimp 2.4.6. So mine should be more complex.

Ok I figured it out. I realized what I was doing wrong. Near the last step I had the layers in the wrong order but I got it to work out. Great tutorial!
