All of my tutorials, in order from newest to oldest. Enjoy.

Hey I'm back. I haven't forgotten about the blog, I've just been busy lately. Anyway, today I'm going to teach you how to create a holiday e-card in Gimp that you can email, print off, etc for your friends, family, whoever you want to say "Happy Holidays!" to.

Alright I know I promised you guys a 3d abstract wallpaper tutorial, but I decided I liked the pumpkin idea better (Halloween is in a week...so why not?). Anway, today I'm going to teach you guys how to create a Halloween pumpkin wallper in Gimp based on a Photoshop tutorial by Alvaro Guzman at PSDTuts.
Alright today I'm going to teach you all how to create a sci-fi movie poster in the Gimp.
Here's a new tutorial in Gimp for ya guys. Today I'm going to teach you how to create a fiery space explosion in Gimp based on a tutorial by Collis at PSDTuts.
Design an Apple iPhone Advertisement
Let's be honest. I like Apple, I really do, but what keeps me from buying Apple products is the fact that it's just too expensive, and nothing is upgradeable. I do like the looks of Apple products, though, except the iPod. I prefer my Zune. But doesn't that iPhone look slick? (It's expensive, too.) But anyway, let's design us one of those fancy iPhones in Gimp.
Pop art, vintage, and grunge are some of my favorite types of styles. They're back and you see them everywhere. Well, today I'm going to teach you how to create a worn vintage pop art design in Gimp based on a tutorial by Alvaro Guzman at PSDTuts. BTW, this is also my 100th post! Yay!
Alright, so today I'm going to teach you all how to make a vector poster like my rubber ducky poster, titled "Kicking Ass and Taking Names."
After being away for so long, I've finally decided to make another tutorial for you guys. You may have seen some of my vectors I've made on my DeviantART. If you haven't, well, go check 'em out. Today I'm going to show you how to make a vector like my Car Vector piece.
I love making vector-grunge based styles that can be used for design in Photoshop. So today, I'm going to show you how to make them in Gimp. We are going to attempt something I made in Photoshop a while back.
Today I will show you how to create a cool music logo on a grunge background, based on a tutorial for Photoshop by Kyle Perro at PSDTuts.
Alright today I am going to teach you how to create one of those colorful photo montages usually used in advertising. The original tutorial was written by Ian Keltie, a Newcastle-based commercial artist, for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. 
Today I will be showing you how to create an urban-style piece of artwork in Gimp based off of the tutorial by Markus at PSDTuts. This is personally one of my favorite styles that I have been wanting to learn how to make, so I figured why not try a Photoshop one in Gimp? It gives it that creative and challenging aspect to it.
Here is the Quick Grungy Poster tutorial that was originally written for Photoshop by Fabio at PSDTuts.
A video tutorial on how to make a multicolor glowing floral image in Gimp.
Alright, so here is a CD case tutorial inspired by my Software Box Tutorial. This one is actually a bit easier to make.
A video remake of my userbar tutorial.
I didn't realize how popular my iPod Dancer Tutorial would get, so I decided to make a video tutorial of it.
Anyway, today I'm going to teach you how to make smilies in Gimp. This is a very easy tutorial.
Today I will be teaching you how to make Web 2.0 badges in Gimp. Pretty simple to catch on I must say.
Here's that tutorial I promised on how to make a software box.
You know those iPod commercials where the people are black and the earbuds are white and they are dancing and such? Well, I had this crazy idea, literally two seconds ago. I decided, hey, why not make a tut for all to see about how to make the little dancers with white earbuds in Gimp? So I did.
I have finally decided to show you how to make userbars today. I make a lot of them which you can see at my dA...you'll have too look for them in my gallery.
