How to create a Snake Text Effect in Gimp 2.8.14 (Plus My opinion on the new release.)

Hi everyone, in this tutorial I will be showing you how to make this awesome looking snake text effect in gimp. This tutorial really isn’t all that hard. You do need to download the layer effects plugin for gimp in order to do this tutorial.If you don’t know how to install the layer effects plugin, I have a video about it on my channel. We are gonna use a couple of tileable textures for this effect. This is a cool effect, I had seen something like this some wheres on the net. I thought it would be cool to recreate it in Gimp. I was working on a different project when I thought to myself, “Hey I should show the wonderful people of Youtube this effect also”. If you get this effect down, you can make tons of these with different font styles very quickly. The estimated time to do this in a simple manner would be 5 minutes tops. You guys can got to my website and download the Gimp file if you would like to. Sorry I was unable to find the dark grunge texture. Any dark grunge texture would work. I hope that you guys enjoy the tutorial.
