    Gimp also supports Vector Graphics in the form of paths saved as .svg. Here are just some samples that I've made with Gimp and transferred to blender for rendering. Edit, many of those shapes were originally created with PDN using the ShapeMaker plugin, then made into paths in Gimp....

    The theme this week is – "Cartoon Character " Chosen by ( @Maximilian SOTW #196 winner) This week you're challenged to design and create a signature that contains a ‘Cartoon Character ’.

The deadline for entries is 7:00 pm (UK time) 2:00 pm (EST) on Saturday, Jan 26th, 2019. To see how that equates to other countries, here is a link to the World Time Competition Rules Max dimensions are 500 x 200. Please NOTE: The forum limits signatures to 500 x 150, if it is too large do not try to use it as your regular signature. Please keep your signature family-friendly. Please keep to the theme that has been set. You may modify or replace your image until the deadline! Don’t violate copyright laws with found images; links to source images would be courteous. Your entry must be made using Paint.net; please don't use an outside image editor and try passing it off as PDN work. There are three entries per entrant allowed. Don’t add links to larger versions of your signature. Your entry should be voted on based on the size laid out in rule #1. Please keep larger versions of your work for your gallery. Signatures may be either horizontal or vertical. The winner of the current SOTW gets to choose the subject for the next competition. Good luck all and thank you in advance for entering.

    @PixeyLike with @Seerose, I'm glad you shared Red's art page link. I visited it and his work is beautiful. I love his oil paintings the most. We're all different. He's so talented in any medium he touches and the work is absolutely beautiful. His oil paintings are very good. I suggest he get a Youtube following and take it to Patreon to maybe show tutorials and get even more of a rightful fan base. Of course, anyone can learn to play the piano by learning piano lessons, but not everyone will be a concert pianist. Red Ochre is definitely a concert pianist on the canvas and with his oil paints. If it wasn't for you, Pixey, I'd not have known he was such a talented, multi medium artist, at all. I stick with watercolor painting, and usually "loose" style, as it's more forgiving. I found I can use it on a airplane when the flight is too long for my attention span, lol. I used certain means of physical activity and artwork as a positive form of escape to clean rubbish out of my mind after dealing with work that didn't always have the best side of mankind involved in it, which is somewhat how I got more into using Paint.Net, too. One of our kids oil paints, has talent with it and I just admire anyone who can use oil paints and stick with it. Red Ochre mastered it, and in a way that brings beautiful, positive energy in feelings. I love the mood and tone I feel when looking at a lot of Red's oil paintings. I feel safe, peaceful, calm, balance and serenity when looking at his paintings. I feel like I'm with a comfortable long time friend, or the man I love (my husband), having a peaceful, easy day. Some art brings a sense of trauma or darkness. His doesn't. I want to take a blanket, cooler, and climb into his oil painting called "Wild Flower Meadow" and spend a day hanging out there, reading a book or just laying on my tummy with my feet bent up in the air, no shoes on, and just look at how beautiful everything around me is, for hours....maybe nod off and take a nap while listening to the birds. I'd like to walk along the shores of some of his beautiful coastal images. He paints beautiful places a person would love to be at or just relax in. I really like his style. I love a few other of his paintings, toos, but I hope he never stops painting. Good on you for rightfully making his talent better known around here. Someone who paints like that, the style and tone he paints, has to have a beautiful soul.

    @lynxster4, @Pixey, @Roger the Dodger, @Seerose, @Woodsy thanks for the reply and sharing your works. @Ego Eram Reputo, @toe_head2001, @Eli, @Maximilian thanks for the rep points. I am happy that we managed to get another tutorial out of the Graveyard. Looking at the Seerose's images, I intend to extend this tutorial with some techniques and little 'tricks'. To do this, I need some time to experiment with images. As soon as I'm ready, I'll publish the second part of this tutorial.

    I think it would be a shame to close the forum awards 😕 I admit, I find the sheer number of categories difficult. Plus, my memory is not that great that I can recall perfectly the past year. Things to consider: Fewer categories Allow voting through the whole year. Tally at the end. Could we use a forum poll?
