Hoka Hey! (It's a good day to die)
Hello im new and have been researching this website for the past 2 days and im impressed and overwhelmed at the same time. I use to play DnD then conned out for the easy digital versions wich became boring like EQ WoW need I say more. I have uninstalled my games from my comp and have been taking up the hobby of writing sci fi/fantasy. I havnt published anything or have finished a book for that matter but I am loving this hobby of mine. I love creating art in all forms especially in the form of story.
So I basicly want to make some maps for my stories and have been trying Rob A's award winning gimp tutorial. I have never used any programs so his tutorial has been chalenging for me. I just got stuck on trying to invert haha pretty noob stuff.
Thanks for your inspiration, creativity and guidance.
p.s. Hoka Hey is a title of one of my favorite stories about Crazy Horse one of the Lakota Cheifs from midwest.
WIP slow going but progressive
Right now im stuck on making my coastline whispy.
Create a new layer called “Seashore”, and fill it with the really light water colour (Water 1). Add a layer mask, using the “Land Mask” channel, and ensure “Invert” is unchecked.
I guess im not sure how to fill it with really light water hehe im getting the complicated stuff its just the easy things that are expected I know is whats hard atm. Anyways here is what i have so far.
