Salut mates,

In the past days I worked on a few brushes which I want to include in my
Sketch Style World Mapping turorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?15229-Sketch-Style-World-Mapping). I want to post them here as well as I welcome
any kind of critique.

This is the first brush set I've ever made and I know that there are some very
little mistakes in size, but no major problems as the brushes are given in a ~1500px size and will never
end up on a map that huge.

The purpose of the set is to enable people to build there own castles using simple brushes. A few of the brushes
contain already build examples but any element used is given as a seperate brush.

Enough of talking - here are the brushes included in the ZIP file and as a jpg with captions.

I'd be glad if you don't publish them somewhere else than here ;-)
But for the rest... do what ever you want, commercial included.

Would be nice to get info where they ended up so that I could check the results and be happy to see someone using my stuff ;)

heyho, Jazzon,

there are some updates and new creations hidden in my WIP folders waiting to be finished.
Those are mainly symbol sets such as stars, circles and crosses until now. These things can
be found easily somewhere else.

And as for the other castle styles there are in progress but far from being released. My day job
here keeps me very buisy these days and I turned to be more likely a consumer than a producer ;)

If you really need those brushes I am willing to get into it on the weekend. Just let me know and give me
a few hints on what exactly it is that you need.

Cheers,
>Moe

@Moe
Working on a world scale map that includes a variety of structural styles, and my recent experience with making brushes tells me I am no good at it ;-). Brushes that could depict castles featuring minarets (Arabian, old St. Petersburg Russia, India), or Pueblo Structures, or Oriental Styles. Anything which is out of the ordinary castle style would be greatly appreciated.
(Sorry so long to reply, been out of touch myself a few days)

I try get things started and provide a couple of those styles.

Please be patient ;)

Time is not an issue here, so patience is one of the few things in this world that can (sometimes) still be free!

Unzip the file so that you have the .abr file, then put that file into [Your Photoshop program directory]/presets/brushes.

If you need a more intense step by step, let us know which operating system you're using (i.e. Windows XP, Win7, OS X, etc).

Got it, thanks. I extracted files in wrong folder. It works fine...
