I just discovered Gidde's document for following Ascension's tutorial with gimp a few days ago and have been happily working along.

I just got to this stage this morning before work. I'm rather happy with the results so far. Next up is to get some rivers flowing.

I posted this in ascension's tutorial thread, but figured I'd repost it here for some c&c.
