This was a quickie for a private commission. High level PC gets his own demiplane with full blown underwater cave lair!

It was fun to run through a nice small straightforward map.

It's a commission so it's rights reserved.

Some pretty nifty tricks for dealing with magical things there. Very nice and innovative.

Yep. Not totally convinced by the illusory walls, but the other ones turned out well.

Basically - light colour and a solid brush on a new layer. Right click layer -> select pixels. Select a new colour like the original one but darker and more saturated. New Layer. Fill selection on that layer with the new colour. Drop it behind the current layer and gaussian blur by a few pixels. Ready made glowing magical lines.

I just love the blotchy background. Lovely as always, Torstan!

I am curious though... what is the function of room I?

Very nice, it's quite complex, yet simple!

Ah nuts. Good catch. It's storage... I'd better fix that. Oh the joy of smart objects, that's a quick fix.

Ravells - yep, it's a colour jitter large fuzzy brush on a soft light layer. I like the effect it gives when blocking in colour.

Thanks guys :) I'd almost forgotten how it feels to start and finish a map in the same day...
