View Full Version : My first map - Ustaliv

04-02-2011, 05:52 PM

i'm totaly new to mapping, just started out to make some nice looking maps for my first d&d gamemaster job - and somehow i liked it and researched in more detail how to get gimp to work for me.

So the following map is a result of me testing some techniques from tutorials on this site, especially Ascencion's Atlas Style Tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?4084-Award-Winner-My-atlas-style-in-PS/page23) and it's gimp conversion by dibbe, RobA's Tutorial for regional Maps (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?1142-Award-Winner-Using-GIMP-to-Create-an-Artistic-Regional-RPG-Map), and Making Photorealistic Trees (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10009) by Arsheesh.

Since i'm using Gimp only since like 4 days, i don't really get why certain stuff works the way it does, but well it does work so i'm happy XD

Project is still work in progress since i'm still pondering over names and town placement.
