I did it, I made something I am proud of and plan to use!
It started with a Tut, A simple a nice Tut...I like the word Tut..
Thanks to this man right here, I downloaded gimp for the first time, and went to town!
Is the outcome...
I went with something VERY simple, and then once I felt comfortable on my perch. I jumped off the cliff and prayed I could fly. I found out that when just doodleing with snap to grid on it made a nice squiggle effect, I used this to make trees. Then, experimented with the right color shades to be able to reflect grass from tree's without the use of shadows.
Lastly I added colored floors for the building, making this what I am calling a Neo-Classic map! I am just so proud of myself right now!
