MyPaint Tutorial. " Painting a cormorant "

Hi all, 
Navigating through  MyPaint forum i just discovered an small tutorial about "how to paint a cormorant" . i found it very interesting and simple for new users, so i asked for permission to post here. The tutorial is mainly focus as he said on "this tutorial is less about constructing and lighting a cormorant and more about expressing the shapes and colors of something you see."He is using the default round & flat brushes (dry&wet), the 6B pencil and the hard lines detail brush thing.

MayPaint is a very interesting software. If you try it ,you love it.

Meet The artist... Jose Americo Gobbo

Hola a todos,
Este post está dedicado a una de las personas que me ha ayudado con el proyecto GPS (gimp paint studio).Jose Americo Gobbo.

Hace tiempo que empezó mi andadura con el Gimp y desde entonces muchas cosas han cambiado. De vez en cuando es bueno echar la vista a tras para ver los resultados. Y la verdad es que Jose es una parte importante. Su aporte a GPS ,a parte de los animos y algunas buenas conversaciones, ha sido muy generoso en el tema de pinceles.
Concretamente en lo relacionado a las herramientas de Sketching. Hace tiempo Jose y Yo empezamos a hablar acerca de crear unos pinceles para simular lapiceros y medios secos como el pastel. Asi que se puso manos a la obra y empezo a mandarme pinceles animados en bruto, como los llamo yo, sin dinamicas asignadas ni los parametros seteados. A partir de ahi y tras mucha experimentacion fuimos descartando lo que nos parecia peor y quedandonos con lo que creiamos que era mas fiel a la realidad. Al final le presente sus pinceles convertidos en presets y de ahi nacieron los sketching presets. (Mozart Couto tambien aporto sus pinceles, otro dia hablamos de él).

En su blog podeis hallar mas información acerca de este artista. Tambien hay una gran cantidad de pinturas y dibujos con su propio estilo. Aqui os dejo con las direcciones.

Hello everyone,
This post is dedicated to one of the people who helped me with the project GPS (gimp paint studio). Jose Americo Gobbo.

Long ago began my journey with the Gimp and since then many things have changed. Occasionally it is good to take the following view to see the results. And the truth is that Jose is an important part. His contribution to GPS, apart from the spirits and some good conversations, has been very generous on the subject of brushes.

Specifically as it relates to Sketching tools. Jose long ago and I started talking about creating a few pens and brushes to simulate dry environments such as cake. So I went to work and began to send raw animated brushes, as I call it, without dynamic parameters assigned or setpoint. From there and after much experimentation we were discarding what seemed worse and we keep what we thought it was more faithful to reality. Finally I converted this his brushes presets and presets sketching were born there. (Mozart Couto also brings their brushes, the other day talking about it.)

On his blog you can find more information about this artist. There is also a large number of paintings and drawings with his own style. Here I leave you with directions.
