Wanting to contribute something I gave my first tutorial a shot. Fighting for ages with scribus and a screenshot tool I tried to explain my take on consistend looking and fast to create maps for the weekly gaming session. No fancy piece of art just nice and fast and maybe something for everyone.
If you like what you read and it proves useful I will elaborate on it ( probably I will do that anyway ;) I just need a break from fighting unknown software... ) As always CC, typos and other critters very welcome.
Just read through this, and it looks pretty good. I don't have Photsohop alas, but for those that do this should come in handy.
Actually, this doesn't contain any PS-specific tools that I can see; looks like it would translate to Gimp quite easily.
As I´m not familiar with Gimp I´m glad to hear that. I tried to keep this as a general approach rather than achieving a specific style. Something to build on.
