Fun with the GIMP

I've been working so much lately that I haven't had time to do my favorite leisure activities, which are reading and writing.

Thus, when I felt stress levels rise dangerously, I opened the GIMP and decided to see what I could do with it in my short resting moments.

I decided to use the GIMP because I wanted to do something experimental.  To begin with, I am not a visual artist of any kind and my digital drawings have never gone beyond stick people on Kolourpaint.  In other words, I wanted to step out of my known tools and experience something new.  Hopefully, I'd be able to paint something in the process, too.

And this is how Tajumaru came to existence.  True, it is not a masterpiece but my stress was gone when I finished the painting.  That was the best outcome!

I highly recommend the GIMP to those who, like me, need to release some stress and don't have much time in their hands.
