How to Make Your Own Tux Avatar

I suggest keeping each section on a new layer for ease of use inthe future.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Draw and elipse using the 'elipse select tool'.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Fill it in black using the 'colour fill tool'.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Draw another elipse, covering the top third of the first one.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Use the gradient tool to fill it from white to transparent.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Use the 'fuzzy select tool' and then set the 'elipse tool' to the shown setting.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Draw an elipse that covers about two thirds of the black elipse but intersects at the bottom.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Again use the 'gradient tool' to fill the selection from white to transparent.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Draw a small elipse for an eye.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Fill the eye with a gradient of white and the draw and 'colour fill' a pupil black.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Then select all (Ctrl + A).

Tux, Screen Shot,

Copy (Ctrl + C) and Paste (Ctrl + V) the eye.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Secure the paste as a layer with the buton shown.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Then flip the layer horisontally to get a symetrical eye.

Tux, Screen Shot,

This is how your image will now look.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Set-up the gradient as shown and fill a small rectangular selection between the bottom of the eyes.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Select the 'perspective tool'.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Click on the rectangle and drag the bottom corners inwards.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Aply a 'drop shaddow' to the layer.

Tux, Screen Shot,

These are my recomended settings.

Tux, Screen Shot,

This is how it will look.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Create a smallish rectangular selection.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Select this mode of the 'elipse selection tool'.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Select an elipse so that the square cuts the bottom off it.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Fill it using the same gradient as the beak.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Do the same copy, paste, flip to the foot that you did to the eye.

Tux, Screen Shot,

Then add a drop shadow to each. Save the file as a .xcf and then save a copy as .png

Tux, Linux Mascot,

And there you have it, your very own Tux Avatar.
