Wow - thanks for this. I'm a long-time ArtRage user but I've been wanting to play with MyPaint for a while so this will be really useful.

I will indeed - once I've updated to Ubuntu 12 and had chance to get to grips with MyPaint (I'm still an avid ArtRage fan).

Thanks Griatch, it is nice to hear something like that coming from you, i love the way you teach too :D. and in some way you were my first teacher, because i use your web tutorial about brushes to learn the basics of mypaint.and in one evening, i was able to make brushes very simply.

Amazing resource, as usual you got my praises for such a hard work. It was very informative for me to read about stuff I didn't even know about (like dabs, elliptical dabs etc.), and it is very friendly to read.
:iconloveuplz:

Though to be completely honest, it felt a bit overwhelming to read more than 30 pages in one go (I cannot stop once I start something!). It reeeally depends on what do you want to achieve with your tutorials. You see, a 38-page long PDF has some great advantages, such as it is easy to print, store, and easy to re-edit. However I would probably prefer if it was published as an HTML. Webpges are a bit harder to edit and print, but much more friendly and interactive for the reader. For example, if I wanted to jump back to Example 1 from Example 4, it's much easier for em to click webpage links rather than spamming PageUp and PageDown in the PDF, right?

Just my two cents. Other than that, I would probably change a few pages into double-row like you did with GPS: it is easier to follow an example when you have an image side-by-side to it back up without having to scroll up/down. But these are just minor details hahah.

Again, thanks for your GREAT contributions. Your work has been an inspiration for me (and will continue being)... now I only need to get starteeeeeeeeed! :la:

Thanks for the BIG comment, this is what i call good feedback. ok, so for the lenght of tutorial i think it could be smaller, but since i wanted to explain all in a very easy way, i needed to use lot of pages and text.
I agree that images on the side are better so i am still learning Libre office to do the things faster and cleaner.
for the index.. i have made the turorial to be navigated easylly, so you can see thumbnails and sections. and for the HTML idea.. i don´t know.if there is a volunteer i could talk with him, and send the files.
I am glad you like it. it took me lot of time to do it ,but finally is here :D
