The Amber Lands is my personal homebrew campaign that has been around since AD&D 2nd Edition. My group and I have been playing here for 12 years or so.
I have decided to try my hand at updating the map and making a somewhat more "professional" looking map.
First, I drew the map on hex-paper in pencil, with some splash of color pencils just for fun. I scanned the image into GIMP and so far, I have only worked on the sea and the land.
Unfortunately, I am a little stumped on how to render the mountains. My first attempt ended up looking too "watercolor" to fit with the style of the map. I must say, I spent the last two hours plundering the previous posts looking at other techniques, so I hope to have something by tomorrow.
There's not much here, just the beginning.
