paintbrush for lin? (not as mad as it sounds)


Is there a good tool for drawing basic shapes? With paintbrush I could draw different shapes and paste them into paint shop pro. Then with gradient fills, you could do great stuff.

I've tried dia, Kpaint, Kontour, xv, sodipodi and gimp. Kpaint came closest, but doesn't have an undo. I've tried using wine, but copy and paste cause it to freeze. Dia wont let you copy and paste into the gimp.

Anyway, if anyone has an idea, let me know. Maybe I should be going about things differently.
This is the kind of thing I do. http://www24.brinkster.com/jreidy/default.htm

Regards,
unholy

Gimp should let you do gradients like that. It is very Photoshopish.

Sorry, xexix, thank you for the link. (Way past my bed time.
Mossy, it's more paintshop than photoshop I'm looking for. I don't think Gimp is designed for the kind of stuff I do.

althought, the above is for very advanced users.

Cool RO, thanks. I think I'll try the latter. It sounds a little easier to use
