Good one for the hand drawn crew. Sure there must be ways with Gimp etc where you can flip or rotate the image and get it to do that without the pair of compasses tho.

Nice tho.

@joćo paulo This is a nice tutorial indeed. Repped...

@redrobes The rotate is a little iffy in gimp I'm noticing...

I'm working on something...

Thank you JP Cruz,
I hand draw my map and map elements first, and was just beginning to think about drawing a compass rose surrounding my map title. This gives me an excelent focus for beginning. Thank you for your effort here. It is greatly appreciated!

Constructing 12 points with compass and straight edge is fairly simple as well.
