View Full Version : My Homebrew Setting Map WIP

08-24-2012, 10:35 AM
Hi Everyone! This is my first post here and also my first serious try at mapping with GIMP.
As you can probably see, i used darklingrisen´s tutorial for fast and easy artistic maps.
There are no features or labels as of yet, but I´m planning to add those later.

What do you think about it? Any major flaws? Any advice?

I decided to try a more realistic approach based on the map i posted above.
Took me almost 6 hours. Well, there goes another sunday afternoon... ;)
I think the mountains came out pretty well. Better than I could have hoped for my first try.
The trees will be added later. I´m playing around with forest techniques at the moment, but I´m struggling
to make them look... natural.
I´m not really happy with the rivers though. Could anybody give me some advice on that matter?
