Apologies if this is a repeat of a previous question, but I've searched and haven't seen anything on this exactly. I'm trying to learn how to parallax map, and it's going reasonably well, but the next step is to learn how to get cool lighting effects for darker indoor scenes, underground tunnels, nighttime camp scenes and the like. I'm using Gimp, which I'm getting the hang of, but there are still many functions I'm just not aware of or that are too complicated for a noob like me. The question is, does anyone know of any good, clear, straightforward tutorials, either video or written, about doing this, or do you have any tips on how to get some decent lighting effects using gimp on your own parallax maps? I really am pretty much a beginner, and I'm learning by doing, so any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated. I've a feeling that once I get the hang of it, it should be fairly simple to do, but at present it's just a big load of icons with buckets, paintbrushes and some kind of swirly lasso on them. I have some idea what those buttons do, but there are others I don't begin to understand, and that's where I need help, if possible!

I was listening to songs by Chuck E Cheese's voice actor (Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup) when the meds I was taking for my stomach virus apparently stopped working. I can't take my next dose until morning, but it's no use anyway. I'm officially sick again. Of course, I'll definitely take the next dose either way, but it's useless now.
