View Full Version : First map

02-23-2009, 04:36 AM
I would like to solicit comments on my first map (generated using the GIMP tutorial). This is for an adventure based in the Dragon Warriors world Legend, on the Thuland side of the Thuland/Albion border. (Which means I'm stuck with the Pagan Mountains).

I'm not happy with the forests, as they just look like hills to me and I could've chosen a better font.

Any hints for improvements or obviously glaring errors? Please note, I'm not artistic in any way, shape or form, so some things I just will not be able to do.

The font could work, I'd play around with color and stroke/glow until I got it to fit thou.
Can you scale down the forest texture? Forests at that scale should be very flat and follow the contour of the land rather than have it's own... Flatten it out and apply some tiny bump map maybe. I'm not a GIMP so, I might be off.
