    Hello Community,

    im pretty new to gimp so I don't know much. So I found this picture but since I prefer green to red I wanted to change the color of the red spray or whatever. Could someone tell how to do it or even do it for me? I've tried it with the path tool and color balance but that didn't work that good...

    To replace the red you best bet is "Colors/Map/Rotate colors". Use the top circle w/ arrows to bracket the range of reds used in the image, and the bottom one to define the corresponding range of new colors.

    Well, the basic idea isn't too hard... a portrait and lots of brushes. Still, I have tried making a very similar thing once, and I failed miserably. I don't have the eye for the brush placement I guess...

    Truthfully, I don't care for the brush placement on most of this one. Its rough and kind of ruins the flow in places where it ends where it should keep going or connect to other parts.

    I disagree.
    If you care for explanation:
    Green: Flow
    Blue: ... No flow...

    This is how I see it. Guess its just a difference of opinions.
    Using your color key:

    Where I've got the overlapping blue lines in the shape of the Pi sign, I was trying to show that the flow ends there, not that it flows in that direction. I kinda screwed up on that.

    Yeah. I guess i can see your point, but in the end it's just up to what your eyes think.
