How do you animate in GIMP if you add a background to it? Do you have to copy the background for every animated layer?

It depends on the brush used. I think it was this one back then: sta.sh/0214vgtww9pq

You mean "free to use"? Do you want to use it for something? You can do that, as long as you don't sell it or claim it as yours of course ^^

Is it possible to draw from another program then transfering it to GIMP?
As in.. with different layers and then make it move automatically there? D:
Just asking though. It would make my life easier xD
Since I can't draw very well in GIMP
I don't know why.

I have an intuos 4 small. It was about 200 Euros at the time. The cheapest (and also good) are I think the wacom bamboo ones
