At the end of September, I put up online a map (see below) I had created for my WIP fantasy series Graceborn. I was touched by everyone’s enthusiasm for my map, and I received a LOAD of questions about how I made it! So here it is—the post I promised on how to make a map like mine.

First off, a preliminary note: the program I used is called GIMP (more details below). This post is not a step-by-step guide on how to use GIMP, because there are WAY better sources of information out there on that.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this, and I’d love to hear from you if you make your own fantasy maps!!
