Before discovering this forum, i was an vectorial addict. But when i saw the beautifuls maps made with GIMP or photoshop, i decided to change my way of drawing.
I took a vectorial map of a part of my world (cf. Lin e Rin transformed on the Regional/World mapping ) and i bitmaped (?) it.
The result is below:
I used GIMP for the colors but the coast-lines and the texts are imported from inkscape. I'm happy...
