So, a friend of mine showed me this excellent tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/1142-%5Baward-winner%5D-using-gimp-create-artistic-regional-rpg-map-4.html) and it got me into trying some map making for myself. After a few first attempts rightfully left in the trashbin of horrors, I've come up with something I'm tentatively letting see the light of day. This map has about three hours of work in it, entirely in Gimp using the stock brushes and effects. I styled the islands after an idealized version of the geology on the Northern BC coast.

Not entirely satisfied with how smooth the rocky coastline came out, Going to try some more aggressive randomization there next time.

I like it, though, like you said, the coast is a little bit smooth.

It is a nice layout. But the coasts really need more fractalization. Congrats.
