    Map Harich Village

    This is the first map of a village I ever made.
    I am beginning to develop my own style, and that's so great! I hope you like what you'll see. I have combined several tutos I've picked up here and there, and assembling together, it begins to be fun, doesn't it?

    I am still looking for something enabling me to make my parchment look more real (like some folds for example?)

    Very Nice !! for folds I create a new layer on top of everything and draw a 5px line across the map at about 50% opacity if its too dark you can lower the opacity of the layer itself. Keep up the good work!!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Here are a couple of very nice tutorials on making weathered parchment that you should be able to apply to your project, one for Gimp and one for PS:
