    Default Hellfrost - The Dark Seed Maps WIP

    These are my first attempts at learning GIMP for Battlemap making using the tutorials found here. They are kinda bland as I embellish them with objects in the VTT. Let me know what you think.

    Hi there - its a good start. I strongly recommend you take a look at the BRILLIANT tutorial by jfrazierjr here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...n-GIMP(and-PS). After you have checked out the start of that, go to POST 16-26 and start the river battlemap tutorial using layer masks - you will be AMAZED at what you learn.

    That was the tutorial I used, but also Geamon's tutorial here: My Battlemap Tutorials. I was having one heck of a time figuring out how to do the linear blend. If you look closely at the river map you can see the path triplicates across the map. It was an error, but I think it breaks up the repetitiveness of the grass. I just need to figure out how to make that water look better with some highlights and such.
