Hi there.

I like roleplaying and fantasy for some years now. And I always loved drawing maps and simple (but not TOO simple) pictures of fantastic settings. And since I want to update my skills in picture manipulation and drawing, I decidet to try some computer-assisted map making right now.
I won't use them in my small project right now: I want to make a little "Worldbuilder Guidebook"-like source book for young storytellers. So I better use simple drawn maps there wich the reader can easily reproduce with just a pencil and some paper.
But maybe there will be use of my PC-maps too sometimes.

I'm looking forward to learn many new skills, exchange great ideas and to have a nice time with new friends and artists.

So long :)

Hallo Landsmann, welcome to the guild!
There are a lot of Gimp tutorials in the proper section. Search for a style you like and post your progress in the WIP section to get some critique. Looking forward to your first computer assisted map.

Ah, I can not use my PC for the next weeks. But today I tried some tutorials and created my first coastline. Step for step I get some better understanding of my graphic tools. Thank you all for the greetings and the good tutorials :) As soon as I have created a full map, I will post it to recieve critic and help. Bye
