Hi guys, this is my first map post in this forum, and I'll be using my "starting region for my next RPG" map. Done in GIMP.
I followed some tutorials and I got this final map. I think it's ok, but I may be blind with my "beloved brand new child".
The "handwritten" font represents villages and towns. The other font represents the land, like forests and rivers. I tried to follow all the hints on name positioning that I'd found.
Good start, I like the mountains a lot.
I like the mountains too, but I am not satisfied with the rivers on the mountains, it seems strange to me. I will try to improve that in the next map.
Really nice map, I liked it. Good start from you mate!!!
I like the map. I agree about the rivers. I have the same issue when I do rivers. They never look right. I was given the suggestion of googling images of river maps. It has actually helped me to make better looking rivers. The mountains are not bad. They are better then what I can do freehand with a computer.
I did this map using this tutorial [Award Winner] Using GIMP to Create an Artistic Regional RPG Map
And for the mountains, this one [Award Winner] Simple Mountains in Gimp
For the rivers, I'd found a better way, just use this tutorial [Award Winner] Eriond - A Tutorial for GIMP & Wilbur
Freehand is hard, but is awesome.
