So.. I was just screwing around in GIMP working with Masks (and dodge/burn) and ended up making something I thought was kind of neat. Not really going to do much(I really mean any) more with this than what I have done, but hopefully, someone can find some use out of it.
EDIT: added a version without the grid....
EDIT 2: grrrrr... I am such a dufus. Contrary to what I say below, the textures used are NOT stock GIMP textures. Rather they are from the CSUAC. Sorry for any confusion!!!
