September Entry: Rush Job
I thought I would give this challenge a go, more for the hope of good feedback than any expectation to win, especially as I am away for 2 weeks in the middle of the month, and so only have 1 week to get this entry tidied away!
Not really thought much on the background or story to this setting yet, I would imagine that will come when I start looking at the cities.
Working exclusively in GIMP, using a tailored (ie lazy) version or RobA's tutorial.
I started by scaling up the sketch as a bottom layer then tracing each terrain feature as I came to it. Still experimenting right now to find 'my style' which I imagine will develop as I learn more techniques.
Still not sure how I will approach the towns and other man made features on the map, but will address them once I am happy with the natural look.
Any comments and suggestions greatly appreciated
