hello dear artists,
We looking for some basic and useful tutorials
We will be using Gimp for this as it is free
We have also gone through all the guides with beginner tags here,and I appreciate the work but still as I a noob I feel that these are incomplete and it is a bit difficult for a noob to find useful ones from all these
So please post guides those you feel can prove useful to a noob so that we noobs find these guides at one place only
and before posting please specify that why do you feel it is useful for noobs(you can also post other's guide if you give credit to him/her ??)
We will remain grateful to those who will help us

Thanks in advance

and also please don't post like this
go to google or deviant art and search guides there
direct links will be much appreciated

and to mods please arrange guides according to increasing order of their use
like introduction to tolls first,then topic wise guides and in last few examples for practice

Would you guys prefer a video tutorial or a multiple image tut in a long thread?

first of all this is not a place to ask question,in future ask them here Gameplay Questions

BTW as far as I can guess you can pull support from a player in vacation mode
to do so go to the city from which you have sent support then go to a long pyramidical tower like building called Agora,then click on Outside and finally remove troops from the city you want to
