    Map Quick and Dirty Random Map - The Lia'eth Coast

    I wanted to make a simple little map in GIMP, basing it on my random coastline tutorial.

    The Lia'eth Coast

    This is the result of about 3 hours work, start to finish, completely in GIMP.

    The initial random coastline was made using my random coast method. All of the patterns, textures, etc. are filters, with no "artistic effort" (i.e. painting/drawing) involved. This includes random mountainous areas.

    The city markers are wingdings, (thanks to whoever suggested that recently), placed by hand. The roads and sea-routes are stroked paths. I used displacement mapping on the road afterward to make it look more jiggly looking.

    The compass rose and the faint crest behind the title are both from fonts, as well.

    A three hours' time well spent! Nicely done. I really think those random coasts turned out well! Great test run!
