Thread: First map in Gimp

    Map First map in Gimp

    First map ever made by me, actually.. Setting for a D&D campaign. And YES, I know the hydrography is all wrong, I should (and will) fix it.. Made following the awesome tutorial by Gidde. Any suggestion/critics are more than welcome!

    Looks really good, and your hydrology looks fine, that one part I can see as wrong I can easily except as representative of a river delta.

    Pray tell me.. What were the brush settings for the line by the border? They look absolutely lovely.

    A small suggestion about typography - I know many old maps had odd letter spacing, and if that is the look you want, it's fine. But I find at least titles to be worth hand-kerning to get the spacing just right. My guess is the overhanging l and left-extending y have added up to an unintentionally wide space. That's nitpicking though - the whole map is nicely done.
