    Thank you so much for the tutorial!

    I managed to make the icon for my WIP civilization in a matter of hours.

    A way on gimp to get light coming from the top is to use the blend tool blend with the black at the bottom and white at the top. Change the mode for that layer to screen and I think it should work. It worked for me!

    Great tutorial! I suppose I'll post what I made like everyone else does. So here's an icon I made based on modern Norway.

    Thanks for the tutorial! Had to re purpose a bit for paint.net, but still a great guide! Here's my Switzerland icon.

    Keeping this tutorial alive a bit and also shamelessly plugging progress on my fantasy total conversion mod (which needs new life as well lol). This is the icon for the "Horselord" civ in Bloodmoon:

    Spoiler :



    And my Seafaring civ:

    ...and the Embers Clan:

    Spoiler :



    I also used Paint.net - with a few necessary plug-ins, of course...
