Finally, the time has come! I found lead guitarist to my music project called Nexum (you will hear us... in undefined future ) so I have lots and lots of afflation. Being not only a bass player but also a graphic and lyrics writer is really good experience - I have been dreaming about it. All I need now is to find drummer, singer, second guitarist and keyboardist. It's so easy... ^^'
All right. Some words about picture. In my childhood* I used to have quiet place where I could rest. It was in oakwood and since this time I have been dreaming about having "my own place in forest". So, I made a picture which presents "this place" and now I'm composing calm, peaceful song about this... shelter. And it's all.
I mixed three textures - in this artwork I used grunge and nature textures. I put them on separate layer, usually on Multiply or Overlay blending type. And finally, I erase framgents (by using layers' masks) that I don't need. It's all I hope you'll understand me ^^' I use Polish version of GIMP so I don't know if my translations of tools' names are good.
I understood most of it. I don't know the filters that you are talking about. I know about masks, but I haven't learned how to use them just yet. Thanks for explaining to me. I use Photoshop so some of the lingo is going to be different.
