Yeah, I need some tips...trying to design a logo with a cartoon armadillo wearing aviators. Any idea how?

Gimp is not really for picture creation but editing.

I recommend downloading paint.net
which is the freeware I use when I'm using free art software instead of my Corel. The next thing I'd do would be to get a photo of an armadillo and a photo of aviators. Put the armadillo on one layer and the aviators on another layer. Re-size the photo of the aviators to "fit" the armadillo. Now close the "eye" of the aviator layer so all you see is the whole armadillo. Put a blank layer over the armadillo layer and trace the armadillo. Now make the aviators visible again and trace them in a separate layer. When that's done, make both of the guide photos invisible or delete their layers if you like. Finally, you can start altering the drawings to make them more cartoony, color them in (I recommend coloring on layers added behind the outline layers), and add any finishing touches you like! That's the easy way to make digital art. You can use gimp to finish it up or even for the whole project but paint.net is a bit more user-friendly for the beginner.

You can do all that Sera said in Gimp fairly easily. It's exactly the same process. The only tricky part may be resizing and warping the aviators to fit.
