Most of the maps I make, I use photoshop brushes for mountains, forests, cities, etc..(to which I owe Ramah and many others here a fine thanks!). But, with my latest work, I would have to say "Ooo! A jungle needs to go here!"... and then find that hardwood and pine forests do not a jungle look like...


Anyone have any good symbols/brushes/elements for jungle representation?

If your willing to spend some time making your own brushes, check out the tutorial section for Del........(very long name)'s post on hand drawing in the tutorial forum... he has some examples of making either individual brush type trees and/or big group of trees.... also... many people's finished maps have jungles in them, so you can check that for inspiration.... also.. I know SOMEWHERE someone has some palm tree type brushes.... just don'w know where of the top of my head...

It would be a very good opportunity for you to give back to others!

I don't have any brushes but I drew a jungle and coniferous forest on by Butcher, Baker map. You might also want to look at some maps by Torstan (from the past year or so) as he has done many pine forests. No single trees that I know of but just something to give you a bit of an idea as to where to go should you try your own methods.

Look to the lower right - very nice and not over the top.

Hey... yea... not long after I posted that, I went back and FINALLY found just a smallest grouping down in the corner.... i guess there was so much other goodness, it got lost(likely due to no color variation in the trees...)
