Gimp: My illustration tool

By way of introduction... hello forum!! Since 1970 I've done illustration for magazines, newspapers, various publications, products (jigsaw puzzles, greeting cards, wall decor) In the mid-90s I went all digital. I've simplified and rather than Photoshop, Corel painter and others, now pretty much use Gimp for all of it. (3D work usually done with Rhino 3D software) Just downloaded that list of shortcuts... will be very useful... thanks! Websites listed on my profile if you're interested

Just for info.

That list of shortcuts is generally OK but it is for Gimp 2.6 and has not been updated to include changes.

example 'shrink-wrap' ctrl-E is now ctrl-J

The best list I know is this one:

You can also create shortcuts for pretty much every tool in the GIMP. I use keyboard combinations that make sense to me for lots of fuctions. You can also configure your mouse wheel plus a keyboard shortcut to do useful things, such as making brushes larger and smaller or changing their hardness on the fly.

I configure Alt + scroll up/down to make brushes larger or smaller, and Ctrl + Alt + scroll up/down to make brushes harder or softer.

Picture worth thousand words:

I also made a small set of VBR brushes to go with: GBR brushes are bitmaps, so you can scale them on the canvas but not change their hardness; VBR brushes are vector files, and you can change both size and hardness freely.
