However the shortcuts are different to photoshop. I keep pressing ctrl d and opening a duplicate copy of my current canvas.
One thing I love is gimp is its gradient tool. I can make spirals with it
Heh, that's nice. Aw, the brushes are (one of)my everything(s) in Photoshop, I can't live without that option ;o;
Haha and yeah, I kinda knew it was your style ;p Once people have settled in their comfort zone(or still discovering), artists tend to leave a trail of their style in their works. But of course, even more talented artists have a very broad range of skills they excel in, hardly leaving a trace in one specific area.
