    Default The new guy

    First of all, I'd like to say Hi and that this site has a lot of great material and references.

    I'm drawing a map for my own custom campaign world, which is I'm sure is a popular activity here. I was wondering and hoping that someone has a little time to help me out as I'm not overly familiar with GIMP.
    I currently have my map pretty much drawn out, but it is by hand and I would like to make a digital version of it so that it looks more professional. I like the old brown-yellow paper look with the black ink and symbols. Much like the map for LoTR. Any help would with starting out and pointing me to resources, a guide or stamp for desert terrain , would be awesome!

    Thank you for any help offered.

    I'll be sure to upload my finished map for all to use.

    EDIT - I'm also thinking of getting CC3. I would like some feedback as to whether or not it would be worth it for what I want. Once again, thank you!

    Welcome to the Guild.

    If you're seeking tutorials on cartography then this is the section of the forums you want to peruse.

    Looking forward to what you come up with!
