Hey. I just wanted to share my first GIMP map with you all ... Its based off an original scanned sketch of a fictional (so fictional that it only exists in my head and in 2 chapters that I've written lol) country/kingdom called Ereira.

I downloaded a pre-rendered background and a "Tolkein-esque" brush set to use. Making my own brushes and backgrounds will come in time!

There is no real sense of scale, or a compass rose, but these are also things that I'll be more prepared to attack in the future!

I also decided to not add additional colour, assuming that this was more of a ... travel map than a piece of artwork.
