Some questions and point in the right direction...
Hello, I am new to this site and would love to inquire about somethings in creating maps. If there are tutorials upon these subjects, which I am sure that there is somewhere a point in the right direction to these would be helpful.
To the point at hand. I interested in creating maps with either photoshop CS 5 or 6 but at the moment I am using elements 11, which isn't bad but I prefer the in depth of CS 5 and 6.
Well I must say that I have seen some delectable maps on here and I am wondering in how to get say the geographical looking mountains, forests and the like as well as a closer look of the mountains, forests and swamps ect..
For say the forests deserts and the like I am sure on a geographical view one would use such gradients and texturing for the forests and deserts, but what eludes me is the detailed mountain ranges for this geographical view point. How would one achieve this by say a way of texture or other form?
Also would there be photoshop brush sets available on here for download in regards to say forests, mountains and hills? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also if one can point me in the way of such tutorials and or downloads this to would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance..
There are many styles so head over to the tutorials sections and look up some of them and see if any match the style you are after. Also look at some maps and see if there is the WIP thread and find out which tutorial or style they went with and have a look at that.
As for brush sets you need to head over to the resources area where there are loads of stuff to use. Again, the styles change so you need to browse through them to see if its any good.
If your after a specific tutorial for Photoshop then you can search the site for PS related material or use the keyword index in my sig which is somewhat out of date but still works for some links.
