Recently picked up a digital drawing pad and this is my first map produced with it. I am still working out all the things GiMP can do with the various effects. The entrance is meant to be a hole the party will have to descend into using rope, you can choose where you want the entrance to be this way. I used a bit of shading to show where the floor rises and falls.

Here are a few should keep you busy for a while.

Some are photoshop. But once you get to know your way around GIMP you can emulate most of what photoshop can do..or close enough

Wow thanks for the link, I find most of the stuff is named the same between gimp and ps. Well most of the stuff I know about like masking and Gaussian Blur. So working threw those shouldn't be to much of an issue.
