Hi,

I found this site by luck and I find it very interesting.

I'm French, 42 year old, and I like drawing. You can see, in attachments, an example of gaming map that I made for a MMORPG.

I use mainly open-source software like The Gimp and Inkscape.

Welcome to the Guild. I am also 42, but not French, and am learning GIMP.

Very solid and appropriately styled...wish I could get that kind of look. I think the "antique" is over the top but I do the same thing :) Well done and glad to have ya here.

thank you very much

I have found plenty of interesting things in your forum. it is really good.

your challenges can, maybe, interested me (just for fun). The next lite challenge is planned for May-June ?


For my map, I used Inkscape for the drawing and Gimp for the post-processing (colors, parchment shape and texture). Inkscape is a very good vectorial drawing software but it uses many CPU (mostly when it displays each tree, mountain or house).
