    Question Gimp translation of Ascension Tutorial, Questions of a begineers, step 1e

    Hi everyone

    First thing, i'm looking for a "teacher", a guy that i could ask when i don't understand the Gimp translation of Ascension because if i don't find someone like this, it'll be really boring for everyone, because, i'll have to posts hundred of questions on this thread!

    Second thing: My first question: 1e Normally i would ended up with flat grey see but in fact my see is not flat! Do i have to use a 100% opacity brush for the see or have i made a mistake?

    I ended up with this http://i.imgur.com/XrXrR.png

    Sorry for the mistakes in my english, i speak french fluently but english...

    I don't use GIMP, but I'm sure someone will be along that can answer your question.

    You should probably send a private message to the author of the translation...it will go to their e-mail so they will see it no matter what. I can't help you because I know nothing of Gimp.

    Hm, you shouldn't need to turn the opacity up at all in order for this technique to work. Just looking at your image my guess is that perhaps you painted on the wrong layer. Did you paint on the "Noise" layer or on the grey "Clip" layer?

    Thank you, it helps me to go on, but i'm already blocked on step 5. The tuto talks about "Ascension's Atlas Tutorial Land Gradient" and i don't know what is it! I know what is a gradient but which gradient must i use?

    sorry i'm a noob!

    I think Gidde uploaded a copy of the gradient directly to Ascension's tutorial page, but in case it got lost, I've attached a copy of it here. Once you unzip the file, upload it to the Gradients folder of GIMP. Then reload GIMP and you should find it in your gradients dialogue.
