    Map Some maps I made in GIMP

    Made these a some time ago, all with the help of RobA's tutorials

    Didn't feel like showing them off here until just now, dunno why :p

    Very nice, you've had much better luck with the tutorial than I. It makes me want to give them another go, since I know it is me and not knowing exactly how to make a PS tut work in GIMP when I hit one of the "lost in translation" points. Anyway, really nice, especially your mountains and hills.

    Those are all pretty good maps, much better than my early attempts at RobA's tutorial. I concur with ravells that you did a great job on the mountains. My only critiques would be the hard edge on the Great Swamp in the first map and the Forests that look more like craters in the hex map. And have some rep for nailing the style.

    I like the colours you have used. The overall feel is quite calm.

    You seem to have rivers splitting, which is not usually natural river behaviour.

    Two of the maps were based on maps from an rpg supplement, don't blame me (too much) :p

    Good eye for color, very nice. You could probably darken the forests and still have it look great because they almost fade into the grass too much.
