    Question Quick question

    Torstan, I tried your tutorial, but I got a dumb question:

    I get some artifacts where buildings used to be (see attachement). Do you know what I am doing wrong? Is it the threshold or the way I do the selection?

    I do NOT follow your tutorial 1 by 1, I create the color layer by filling it with a color then add a new layer with plasma, desaturate it, set it to overlay and merge it down, giving some color variations for my town. This is creating a for more uniform color variation than yours and I am aware that it aint that good, but for testing its faster.

    Post a little GIMP script

    Hmm torstan,

    I did some GIMP scripting on your tutorial.

    Attached is a GIMP script that tries automate your tutorial. Maybe you could try it and tell me how do you like it and what could be improved?

    Ofc, everyone else can download it as well but keep in mind that it aint perfect yet

    I did it I did it I did it!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for the tutorial it's the first one I could follow right all through to the end, and I DID IT!


    I mean, I didn't do it very well, and I used my manor from the contest to fill my castle space but I made a whole city!


    I'm a tiny bit excited

    Here's what I made:

    It's not very good, but if I can follow the tutorial, I can practice, right ?

    Thank you sooooooo much
