Postby mibi on Mon May 12, 2008 10:10 am

Ok, here it is....

A series on how I will be creating the graphics for the Epoch maps.

The high quality videos are large and on blip.tv so you may need to wait a while if your connection isn't so great. You can also download the file which may be easier.

Part 2: The borders and territories
(borders will be redone later)
90 megs

Part 3: The beaches and oceans

What program was this done in? I only have GIMP, so I didn't recognize it.
