Hi every body!
I'm Jice, I'm from France, and I'm a begining cartographer!

I love cartography, particularly creating planets, I'm actually looking for a way of creating the perfect realistic planet surfaceto have a cool earthlike render. I didn't found many tutorials over the web so I decided to experiment myself in photoshop and found some good ways of making it. I then descovered Fractal terrains which actually helped me a lot, and I created some earthlike worlds, They're not perfect, but they are quite good, I'm here to share my experience but also to learn from you and to earn new skills =).

Now here is an example of what I can do

Wow, those are some really good land textures!

The oceans could do some work, but thats no biggie. feel free to post it up in the regional/world mapping forum for some better criticism :)
