...make realistic coastlines and topography in Gimp?
Now of course I don't expect to be good at this right away, but I'd love to get started on creating my first map. I have NEVER created a map before, so...total newbie here, be patient with me!!! :)
I have created a basic outline and shape of my map. It's not a world map but it's definitely considerable in size as I would like to have it rather detailed.
My main interest though is the geography/basic layout out the land...the country borders, cities, towns, roads etc. can come later.
How can I make the coastlines look more realistic? How can I add some depth to my map (mountains, valleys, grasslands, rivers etc...)?
Can anyone suggest a good tutorial to get me started? OH btw, I use Gimp 2.4!
Any suggestions would be fantastic!
