…but I completely forgot to update galleries here. I'll try to change that and push some new works this weekend, so… stay tuned! :)

In the meantime: you can check my Facebook (I don't have a fanpage).

I'd like to design techno type interfaces. I'd like to be a professional someday. Thank you for the tips.

Why would you limit yourself to only one kind of interface design style?… If you want to be a professional, well, pen+paper, long hours of trying various ideas, and… take some hints from this article — That Turtleneck is Choking You. And — good luck! :)
I am new to Gimp. And I saw that you're into interface designing. That's what I want to learn in Gimp interface designing like techno type of interfaces. Can you please give me some tips and tricks and advise? I have Gimp 2.8.10. Thank you.

Hi. To fully answer you, I think I should first ask some questions. What kind of interfaces would you like to design? What for?

Because, you know, GIMP or any other tool is last in the process. When I start with design, I spend hours with pen, pencil and paper. When I have general idea for the kind of workflow or other kind of interaction I should model with the interface design, I go to Inkscape and draft a sketch — I love using Inkscape for that. Align options, non-destructive scaling of vector design, guides, gradients, morphological operations (cutting, joining, etc). GIMP, if at all, is used only for adding some bells and whistles into that.

But, if you want some specific tips for GIMP at the start, here's a short list:
• keep number of layers short;
• don't get crazy with filters — usually a bit of Gaussian blur is everything I need;
• learn layer blending modes, just play with them and observe;
• if something doesn't work — get back to pencil and paper, it will save you time in the end;
• learn by duplicating other's designs from scratch, reverse engineer the interfaces you like.

I think that's all for today. ;) :ahoy:
Thank you for the Liama badge.
