Thank you so much for this Tutorial Gidde! This is my favorite style of map, and I just finished my very first map, for my new d&d campaign. I couldn't have done it without your tutorial!
First Map: The Kingdom of Eleseen!
This is just awesome! Thanks for popping my eyes open. This is how I will be making my maps henceforth. :D
With every new map that gets made with this tutorial it becomes more obvious: this is simply one of the best map tuts ever made!
Gidde with your tutorial someone can make incredible maps! However since i don't use gimp is possible you or anyone else to make a photoshop version of this tutorial?
Anyway, the maps here are really awesome :)
Hey there! I really loved your tutorial "Hand Drawn Map Tutorial (for the artistically challenged)". It really made GIMP easy for me. I downloaded the program for the purpose of map making but it was so damn complicated and none of the tutorials online hit home until I saw yours. It was really easy making maps your way.
I e-mailed to bother you of a problem I seem to face. At the point when we are merging all the visible layers keeping 'river', 'coastline' and 'background' invisible, my map isn't turning out as planned. On merging the layers the image becomes grey with only rivers and coastline visible. All the mountains,hills and forests just vanish. I don't know what to do since I'm new to the program. I was hoping you could help and guide me around this problem, if it isn't too much trouble.
Thanks a bunch!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you for this amazing tutorial, it helped me a lot.
I'll try to make some brushes too, very fun to play with them.
Here's the result:
*SQUEE* Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is EXACTLY the style of map I want to create for one of my campaigns! You just absolutely made my day! Great tutorial!
You are my hero :)
