    Default [WIP] Hadra Divela: In which I learn about Wilbur

    OK, this is my third map in GIMP; but it's my first serious attempt to produce something I might actually use----the previous two were practices. Here's what I did:-

    Map 1:- A "continent" (actually divided into five big islands), drawn in white on a black sea.

    Map 2:- The same continent superimposed on some land clouds, using Arsheesh's method from the Eriond tutorial.

    Map 3:- Some mountains added on, using my variant of Arsheesh's method from the Eriond tutorial. (Variant: I use hardly any airbrushing. That's all done with the curve tool, brightness/contrast, a little light use of the smudge tool at low opacity, and a huge amount of careful erasing with a soft brush at low opacity.)

    Map 4:- The same thing but after some Wilbur work. I depart completely from Arsheesh's method; there are three precipitation passes, some added noise, two full erosion cycles with the erosion blur set at 0.1, sharpen, and then a little tweaking to fix a couple of long straight rivers----using MSPaint, cos I use leet graphics programs.)

    Map 5:- Map 4 imported back into GIMP and bump mapped.

    Now seeking your advice, constructive criticism, destructive criticism, personal abuse----heck, I'll take any kind of attention I can get, I'm not proud!----before I start colouring it all.
