    Map My First Map Try

    I'm new to map making and this site. I used RobA's tutorial to make this, had no luck making mountains...

    Any tips or critiques?

    Looks fine so far. Can't help ya with the mountains, though, sorry. I'm not fluent in Gimp.

    I'm not either. I've always used Photoshop for everything I've done. Now I don't have it and can't afford it.

    Read through all of the follow-up posts on his tut as others discuss some of the things that they have done for the mountains and forests.

    Yeah, I'm doing that, it's a lot to read through though. I'm glad that I have no life right now...

    Try RobA's simple mountains in gimp tutorial. It gives some great results when combined with the artistic regional tut.

    In my attempt to use the first one it looks bad...

    Yes the mountains are in shapes you'll probably never find realistically, but these are just practice.
