Making Hand-drawn Style Rivers in GIMP
River tutorials for Tolkien-style/hand-drawn maps seem to be a rarity around these parts (and the internet in general). A lot of the tutorials cover the more realistic styles where you cut the rivers out of the terrain, but what if your river is just a simple black line? How do you make it look nice? How do you give it natural curves and bends? :?:
Hopefully, you'll agree that an answer lies within...
Please let me know your thoughts and, most of all, please share the effects you manage to achieve!
