    Great (and timely) tutorial, Ascension. A couple of these techniques match exactly with some things I wanted to do with my current hand-drawn project so will come in very handy. Thanks!

    Ascension,
    You can also create this layer by using RobA's Triple-Layer Sandwich (he uses it to created semi-random coastlines). Create a layer, set it to Overlay (or it might be Screen... I'll check my GIMP). Then you basically draw your rough border, invert selection (so the "border" is chosen), fill with black, Gaussian Blur (20+px), Create Solid Noise>Cloud>Random Seed Detail =15 X=16 Y=16 and then play with the layer's Levels. I find you can get some other nice help if you play with the Brightness/Contrast of the layer first, before playing with the Levels (it seems to lessen the "drop off" of some of the shapes).

    That's the method I used for my October Entry to get the distressed shape.

    Oh sure. There's a ton of ways to do that...I was staying with the whole "hand-drawn" motif, though
