I'm adding more here as I am about to leave and will not be able to post photos
for a while:

To show you how it looks when I'm drawing in Gimp, I've attached some images:

1. The first attachment is of the image taken as a screenshot, cropped in Paint
and saved as a png. No halo issues.

2. The second attachment is of the image exported from Gimp as a jpg. Halo
issues. I also saved it as a png to see if this would make a difference. It

3. Fill issues can be seen:

a. around the edges of the eyebrows - I actually used the paint brush to add
color near the edges.

b. eyes - same as eyebrows

c. lower lip - same as with the eyebrows and eyes. I will have to use the paint
brush to fill in the rest of the lower lip.

d. upper lip - cannot use fill tool to add color. When I try to do this the
whole mouth, including the outline fills in the with color. (see third
attachment) I will have to used the paint brush to add color.
