First Serious Map Attempt (changed: Mountain Style Development)
This has kind of morphed into a development of a style of mountains to go with an "antique" sort of map; please see the last posts on this page to see where I've moved into.
None of this would have worked without:
RobA's ARtistic Regional Map Tutorial
Ascension's Atlas Style Tutorial
Gidde's GIMP conversion of the same
Gidde's Textured Forests tutorial (which I haven't applied yet)
RobA's script-fu magic (tapered rivers, others I'm sure to follow)
Others I may have forgotten.
This is Work In Progress, tear it apart. Theoretically, this continent is supposed to be about the same size as Africa, presuming you turn Africa on it's side (Mediterranean shore to the right).
I need to redo the jungle in the upper-right with Gidde's Textured Forests, and I'm not sure about the desert yet. The blue river lines are my current w-i-p attempt at creating rivers with RobA's Tapered Rivers by cheating and making the path out of a 1 px line - you can see my thoughts on the process at that thread (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?3011-[Award-Winner]-Tapered-Rivers-in-GIMP)
