Fantasy Cartography Adapted to Gimp, Episode 4
Episode 4 is finally here! After a considerable delay due to unavoidable life circumstances, I have continued work on this project.
Thanks everyone for all the great comments, and I hope you continue to enjoy working with this method.
Fantasy Cartography Adapted to Gimp, Episode 5
I have finished the written tutorial for Episode 5. This episode talks a lot about colors. Due to the fact that Gimp does not have the same selection of palettes/swatches that Photoshop does, I found a color chart for the FOCOLTONE colors and created a custom palette in Gimp for those colors. I also created an approximation of the Pantone colors in a custom palette, which is also included. Here are the palettes:
And here is the tutorial PDF. Thanks so much for reading and using the tutorials. Enjoy!
A little thank you gift....
When I got to the end of the first episode, I said to myself, "...Self, there has got to be way to complete that last step." I tried manipulating GIMP, but no luck. So I jumped on the Google express 'cause I JUST KNEW the solution was lurking somewhere out on the Weird Wide Web. And I was right!
Whilst skulking about on Google, I stumbled across Free Filters & Plug-ins, and guess what I found? A PS plug-in called Spraye that does exactly what Filters > Brush Strokes > Sprayed Strokes does in PhotoShop; I already tested it and it works 100% in GIMP. So here it is for you and anyone else who wants it. A small token of thanks for all I've learned and my own little contribution to a great tutorial.
