But Mine is not to reason why, mine is but to do what the publisher asks. So I took the already nice file and came up with my one take on it. First I ported out some graphics from CC3- a tree, a tower, hills, a mountain, and houses. Then I used another program to create the hex field. Then I added all that stuff together in Photoshop.
I remember seeing how some people using CC3 had created a sort of 3D look, by clever use of perspective, and I thought that approach might be a good one to use here. This is the result, minus the text.
