    Post WIP/First Map - Qyrona

    This is my first attempt at a map, primarily under the guidance of RobA's excellent regional GIMP tutorial.

    There's a bit of random experiment in there, some of it came out ok. Some of it, not so much! The trees are definitely a sticking point.

    Anyway, if you have any constructive criticism, I'd appreciate it.

    I'm off for a couple of days, but will be sure to check in when I return.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    Looking good modernhamlet, especially for a 1st try! I'm not sure if you compressed this image but if not too late I'd go for a little higher resolution so you can work better on details where needed.

    For some reason, the whole image seems a bit fuzzy/blurry to me. But for a 'first try', not bad at all.

    I agree, it's a tad fuzzy but... Compared to my first maps, this looks great!

    Hopefully the fuzziness is just a combination of a slightly heavy cloud layer and the conversion to jpg.

    Here's a small update. Land masked the clouds, sharpened the trees a bit and added snow to the mountains. Saved as png.

    What's the best file format for uploads generally?

    .JPG or .PNG are what most people use to upload.
