I am new to this site. I am aspiring to be a map maker for a risk gaming site called conquer club. I use GIMP as my graphics manipulation program. I have two maps in development. One of the Alamo and one set in a fantasy land set on a battle site between the imperial army and the drove army. I am hoping to become a better map maker and hope this site will be able to help me. It is nice to meet all of you and hope to talk to you soon.
Welcome to the Guild generalhead! Well this is the right place to hone your skills. There are loads of helpful tutorials for GIMP in the tutorials section. You should also consider posting your work-in-progress maps in the appropriate map sections so that others can offer constructive criticism. Look forward to seeing you around.
Fancy meeting You here! ;)
