Thread: Space map in Gimp

  1. #1

    Question Space map in Gimp

    I'm trying to experiment with Gimp for making a map with the sun in the center and then several planets, moons, and an asteroid belt or two orbiting around that, as well as showing the orbital path of the planets and moons. Are there any good tutorials that anyone knows of that I could use. Thanks in advance.

    Hi dark code monkey, Check out the challenges section and look up the Nov 08 one in the archive. There were lots of space maps some just like you describe. Looking through those threads will give you plenty of ideas.

    I went there and didn't see any images I could base a new image off of and try to replicate some of the effects by experimentation. How would I see some of the images that were sent for the challenge. Sorry, I'm a noob here. I admit it. Thanks

    Is this along the lines of what you are looking for? Not exactly a tutorial, but it has a lot of ideas.
