Instead of using GIMP to outline stuff, I'd suggest using Paint Tool SAI. GIMP can't give you the clean, smooth lines you want when outlining, but SAI can.

`Select around the pose with the magic wand tool (make sure you get all of the background pieces!!)

`Then go to Select > Shrink. If you want a thick outline, type in 2 instead of 1! :)

`Next Invert your selection.

`Once that's done, make a new layer UNDER the pose, and then fill with black, deselect, and voila.
