Ok, so I joined the guild a few days ago in search of help and inspiration for my Kingdoms map. I am a complete amateur and up until now have been using basic paint software. Below I have reluctantly uploaded my Kingdoms map which I created around 10 years ago. It is a complete embarrasment, but I wanted to show where I had come from and where I am now.

For the past couple of days I have been using RobbA's and Wisemoon's GIMP tutorial. I have now completed Part 2 and am quite happy with the results so far.

I know it's not perfect but compared to my old map its great! Any advice or pointers is eagerly received and tomorrow I'll be battling my way through Wisemoon's Part 3,4 & 5 tutorial and will hopefully have some rivers and mountains.
