Now through Mtns L #48. I found that someone else had made some brush pipes and posted them on Deviant Art. They did not use the functionality of GIMP to make opaque brushes and so I still feel that my endeavor is worthwhile.
I've gotten it back to the point where I last left off, plus a new border. On to the legend.
Through #35 Mtns L, woohoo!
Update: Now completed 165 files, thru Chief-dancette.
Through #23 mtns L. only 40 more of that set to go.
