    Post Hi I am new here

    Hey I'm Aniolel, and inspiring map drawer. I want to learn how to draw realistic maps on the software that I have, which is Gimp. I know PS is probably a better program, but I don't have the resources for that. Thus, I opted for a free software that is similar to GIMP. I hope to share, after I learn, my maps.

    Welcome, aniolel. Feel free to share your maps *as* you learn - all those threads marked [WIP] are Works In Progress. If you ask for constructive criticism and comments, the other guildspeople will help you figure out not just a minimum how-to, but how better and better to map. It's a helpful community.
