Thank you so very much! I am a technical writer by trade, so writing instructions and tutorials is something I have experience with. :)

But I'm not taking classes this summer, so I am going to pick it up again.
I am even considering trying to do some video tutorials. I took a Photoshop class last semester, so now I have both Photoshop and GIMP and experience with both. Please look for continued posts here, and I plan to set up a new art/design blog, which I will be linking in my sig. I will have plenty of tutorial content on my blog as well.

Well it's taken me longer than I imagined it would, but I am finally getting back to this project. I apologize to all of you who've been waiting for more, and will really try to get the rest out on a more reasonable schedule. I hope to have Episode 4 up within a week.
Also, I may be renaming this tutorial series and reposting it...mostly because I have ended up changing quite a few things in the adapation. So I may call it something else and just give Zombie Nirvana credit for being the source and inspiration for the tutorials. Keep an eye out, I also plan on doing some other tutorial stuff in the future.
Thanks to all of you who commented and have used the tutorial!
This is a great project, and I hope you keep it up!
Wow, I had no idea Butch Curry was actually a member here! Looks like he is a recent applicant. I am honored you chimed in on my thread, Butch! Any plans to add more episodes to your video tutorial series? Last I saw you had gotten up to episode 18...
Oh, and guys I promise I am working on episode 4...it will be up soon!
I was on here some time ago as palehorse and just came back today. :) I'll make an announcement about future plans by the end of the week, here and on my YouTube channel before anywhere else!
Butch - do you want me to merge ZombieButch and Palehorse?
Please do, Rob, that would be great! Thanks!
Episode 4 is now ready!
Episode 4 is finally ready! In this episode, we learn a trick to add some variety to our forest pattern so the tiling effect is obscured. We also learn to make a tree trunk brush pipe in Gimp, and use it to add trunks to our forested areas.
I seem to be having some trouble uploading the file, so I will upload the actual PDF later this evening. Thanks to everyone who has been monitoring this thread, and who has downloaded previous episodes. I plan to continue updating, and should be able to do so fairly quickly until mid-August--but as school starts for me at that time, they may slow down again.
Check back later tonight to get the new PDF!
Edit: Here is the file.
Well, I joined just for these tutorials, and I think they're fantastic. Thank you!
I like the tutorial, too.
