View Full Version : 58 small-sized Mountain Brushes

09-11-2010, 11:55 PM

I've been thinking about what I could hide in the treasure chest on my portfolio site. I found some old brushes that I created once for a map. I haven't really used them yet, recently I like more to try out different styles.


You can try to dig the treasure and download it here: www.fantasy-cartography.com
Or get it from the attachment.

I hope you like it. :)

Looks great! Which CC license is applied to these mountains?

Uhm, no idea ... a "you may use this for whatever you want"-license? I haven't yet dealt with such things.

What I've written on my page:

You may use these brushes or files for whatever you want, including commercial purposes. But you may not redistribute, sell or upload them to any site without my permission.

I'll see if I can find a license that fits.

Hm, I don't know why, but the link doesn't seem to work for me. They look amazing though!

Wow, these are really pretty nifty. Too bad they don't scale up very well. What as your process for making these?

@ all

I'm glad if you like it. :)

@ RE

you don't use a common browser like Chrome, FF or IE, right? Some browsers don't support the automatical download of some files (I've read). Otherwise I don't know, but the brushset is also attached now. :)

@ Slipguard

I drew them by hand on my graphics tablet. Sorry, that they are so small.

I created them for my Caeruin XXL map, but the style changed during process and I had no use any longer for them.

Thank you so much!

How can I put these as a brush in GIMP? I extracted the files to my GIMP directory and tryed the .gih and .gbr extension, neither of which worked.

Gimp supports some ABR formats. Just try putting the ABR file in your gimp brush director and reload the brushes to see if they come up.

These are sweet. Will be sure to use these for some upcoming maps. I love hand drawn looking mountains like these. Thanks!
