In a current campaign my character has recently become knighted and steward of a village. Last night when I had some downtime in the game session I sketched a map of the place.

A friend of mine has the paper now and has promised to scan it in for me so I have something better to work with.

I'm planning to use this as a base for a map drawn in gimp. This will be my first serious attempt at computer drawing (I've always put it off because I don't have a drawing pad, but now I figure I should give it a try anyway). I'm thinking I'll draw elements like houses and trees and use them as brushes. The compass rose is something I should probably do at least part of in a vector graphic program, but I suck at handling those >.<

Any tips, tricks and opinions are super welcome!
