Check gnuart.net. Lots of photography, drawings, and more. All released under guess what...

I'm glad I found this forum... I just got my Linux (Mandrake 10.1) box two days ago, and know virtually nothing. I've been looking for help with GIMP.. and general desktop/art resources...

 

Justtt wanna say thanks to everyone who posted, and when I have work to show, I'll post up.
