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!

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.

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.
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
