Art Journal: Making Maps in GIMP Tutorial Pt. 4

I have finished Part 4 of the tutorial revision I’ve been working on. Part 1 showed you how to create the basic landmass shape, and some techniques for generating a random map if you don’t have a sketch to start with. Part 2, showed you how to color in your ocean/sea, and how to color your landmass with textured grass and dirt. Part 3 showed you how to create mountains and forests on your map. Part 4, posted here, shows you how to create rivers and lakes, how to place your towns and cities, and how to draw roads on your map.

Here is an example of the final result from this tutorial. As you can see, it now has rivers, lakes, towns, and roads.
