With Gimp comes a plugin Resynthesize together with a Python script Heal Selection. On Linux the plugin is contained in the package gimp-plugin-registry. After selecting an area with the select tool: We can "heal" this selection from "Filters > Enhance > Heal selection...". Here I made a random healing with 10 pixels from the surrounding:
I would approach this in a similar way to horatio, but I would probably keep the original image in tact as much as possible (assuming you want to preserve it). I'd create a similar texture to the paper like so: It's just a noise texture against a subtle gradient with some distortions via a horizontal and vertical scale. You'll notice some color ...
Because you are editing out text (e.g. radically altering the original), one way to do this is to cheat: Edit the image so that the yellowed paper is no longer yellowed. Blank out to your heart's content, then overlay a new all-over fake yellowing paper effect. This will be uniform.
If you are feeling adventurous you can implement the Texture-Synthesis algorithm described here it fills pixels with those which have a similar neighborhood creating an almost seamless extension of a texture or filling in holes, here are some examples Gimp supports scripting, so you could write a plugin for this (I planned to do it myself a while ago but ...
The copy and paste will give best results without ruining the texture and color of that particular balloon. What I generally do is start fairly small copy paste a few times, then merge the layers together (does Seashore have layers?) but stop just before the original. Then you have a larger sample to continue working with. Before you continue copying and ...
I was going to say something about posture, but when you get to my age, it hurts no matter how you sit. From a technical perspective, there is value in changing your distance in order to both get an overall sense of the work and a close-up view. You have close-in covered. One way to get back from the work (aside from getting out of the chair) is to use a ...
Take a pencil. Take a notebook. Start sketching. Once you are comfortable with that, try telling a story through your images. Once you are comfortable with that, then google specific techniques for making comics. But the two basic, fundamental things you have to learn is how to express a situation and a story through images.
Does it matter? My entire thought about creation of art is "Whatever works for you." There are no rules or best practices directly related to creation. It's only in production where there are guidelines. Now, that being posted, you may find that you feel better and can draw longer if you just try and take care of your posture a bit more. :) I developed a ...
