I am trying to use the fill tool like this tutorial says but literally nothing happens.
What am I doing wrong?

That moment when I read this again and see the steps I keep neglecting to do.
Luckily I can redeem myself with this one thing I'm working on right now.

The rivers be triggering my anxiety tho

well, hello there. I wasn't expecting you here, but on hindsight, I should've seen it coming.

I had been familiar with Inkscape for a while (as a web developer I love using SVGs for icons and such because of how nicely they zoom), but I used this tutorial as a way to organize my thoughts when I finally decided to start making maps myself.

Awesome walk-through!

I'm quite experienced with Inkscape but I believe this tutorial can really help me in mapmaking.

That looks like the best tutorial so far, maybe I give it a try and learn Inkscape too^^
Did you try several programms and recommend this one the most?
Upvoteanthology's avatar
I did, I definitely prefer Inkscape over things like Photoshop and Illustrator. :)

Why would you say Inkscape is better than Photoshop?
Arminius1871's avatar
Maybe I´ll give it a try, to honour your great tutorial, but first I must finish some other stuff XD
