Hello CG,

How's everyone doing today? I've registered because someone (thanks, arsheesh) over on ObsidianPortal.com said this was the place to come for tutorials and such on mapping in GIMP - I'm hoping to translate what I learn into campaign maps, and hopefully to carry the experience over into other art created/modified with GIMP. So far I'm finding the tutorials on creating a hand-drawn style (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10655-Hand-Drawn-Mapping-%28for-the-Artistically-Challenged%29) map and the appearance of aging parchment (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?533-Tutorial-Creating-old-weathered-paper-using-the-Gimp) quite helpful.

Welcome Jon, Yup this is the place to be for tuts on map making esp fictional, fantasy, & scifi styles tho we do some real world mapping from time to time. Check out the finished maps section and browse the thumbnails, look at the WIP threads and see who did it, what they used and how its done. And then theres the tutorial sections of course.
