So here is my first attempt at a whip. As you can see I am a complete noob when it comes to this.

I'm using GIMP 2.6.10 for windows XP

This is a ship I will be using in my Traveller game. Its a 200 dTon Yacht/Courier. For those that don't know, a "displacement ton" is based on the volume of 1 metric ton of liquid hydrogen; aprox 14 cubic meters or 14 Kiloliters. So the volume of the craft is 2,800 cm/kl.

Any pointers you have to give to make this ship look better, or on how to generate accurate orthos would be greatly appreciated.

Links to GIMP tutorials anywhere on the net are also greatly appreciated.
