I just wasted a lot of time where I should have been studying for mid-terms.
But, I got color back in the map. It's not quite back up to the level I had before I went back to finagle the islands into something a little more natural looking. So there's still a long way to go! No land features as yet, just basic land color and some ocean shores.
Next, a bit more work on the land to give it depth and character. Then mountains.
To do the work on the mountains, I'll probably have to flatten several layers of the image in order to reduce working size.
Does anyone happen to know if I can transfer layers between images in GIMP?
So... Midterms this week. I must study. I probably won't have much in the line of updates for this again in a while.
