    Default Hello from Germany

    Hi there.

    I like roleplaying and fantasy for some years now. And I always loved drawing maps and simple (but not TOO simple) pictures of fantastic settings. And since I want to update my skills in picture manipulation and drawing, I decidet to try some computer-assisted map making right now.
    I won't use them in my small project right now: I want to make a little "Worldbuilder Guidebook"-like source book for young storytellers. So I better use simple drawn maps there wich the reader can easily reproduce with just a pencil and some paper.
    But maybe there will be use of my PC-maps too sometimes.

    I'm looking forward to learn many new skills, exchange great ideas and to have a nice time with new friends and artists.

    So long
    Thomas

    Hallo Landsmann, welcome to the guild!
    There are a lot of Gimp tutorials in the proper section. Search for a style you like and post your progress in the WIP section to get some critique. Looking forward to your first computer assisted map.
