Well, I noticed that there wasn't a tutorial for making Shimejis with the Gimp Program. And it is a little different than using Photoshop... Just some extra steps that you need to be weary of.
But yeah. I do hope that this helps becuase I remember I was talking to a user who was a little frustraited that they had to go by Photoshop tutorials for making a Shimeji.
For those of you who do not know what a Shimeji is, it is a Japanese program that allows little chibis to walk around your screen and give you hell by reproducing like crazy and throwing your conversations out of the screen. They are a lot of fun. here is the link for the English version, in which you can also get a Link Shimeji thrown into the pack.[link]
I did not make the England base. It is not mine. It's
's work. You can download England here:[link]

I have this tutorial on youtube, in case if there is any confusion. I personally like having somebody explaining and me seeing at times when I am learning something... So here's the link:[link]
