Looking for more mapping articles

RalfRalf Surveyor Administrator, ProFantasy
Hi folks,

We are looking for more stuff to post on the blog in our series of guest articles. It could be about mapping your homebrew campaign, adding resources to CC3+, general mapping principles - basically anything mapping related. If you are interested in writing something up, let me know your idea, and we can talk about it. Whisper to me here, or send me an email to ralf@profantasy.com. If you don't want to write something yourself, feel free to add ideas and wishes in the thread below.

Here are some examples from the blog:
Celtic Village Symbol Set (by Scott David Aniolowski)
The ProFantasy Community Atlas Project in RealmWorks (by Josh Plunkett)
Creating Onion Domes with Shaded Polygons (by Sue Daniel)

    Here's a few possibilities if anyone is interested:

    - Colour, colour schemes, contrast, texture and relative scale - picking and or making a set of textures that work together (that could be a long one because colour theory is fascinating!)
    - Making cloud symbols in GIMP (v2.8)
    - Making waterfalls in GIMP (v2.8)
    - Post processing the hill shading on a CC3 map in a bitmap editor (GIMP v2.8)

    (I use GIMP v2.8 rather than GIMP v2.10 because it works better, and the files can be opened in other bitmap editors, unlike those of v2.10)

    I'm a little busy right now, but I could probably do one or more of those in a month's time if anyone is interested.

    We are still looking for people to contribute to the blog with short articles. Got a map to share with some notes on how you created it? Got some general ideas on mapping? The use of maps in games? We can pay a little for these articles, message me for info.

    Good day. I am writing articles on training. I run my own blog in which I talk about various tricks and essay writing tips to simplify the learning of students and schoolchildren.
    I can try writing articles for you.

    I could do a short article about how and why I sometimes end up drawing some rooms (outlines) first and then put them together rather than the more usual way around. I always try to do external walls first but every now and then I end putting the horse before the cart!
