I'm new here but I have a completed map that I finished little over a week ago. It's my first map I've done digitally and I still like it, though after looking around the tutorials here I'm sure I could do a lot better now.

The map was done in gimp. For the ocean I used some grunge brushes and for the land I also used grunge brushes. After I had the land nicely colored I did a a bump map for a more 3D-ish texture. Then I added a drop shadow to both the land masses and the names.

I know it could've used some mountains and rivers/lakes, but - for the mountains especially - I didn't really know how to decently make them.

I hope to improve in the future, now that I'm here
