Everything in Photoshop CS4 except the mountain shadows (rendered height map in 3DSmax 2009). From a map request. WIP is here. Started a Tutorial to explain the process. I'll be updating it as I find better ways to achieve the look.
I really appreciate the feedback everyone gave the in WIP forums. It was all very honest and helpful!
Amazing work kalvinlyle, have some rep.
More rep for you, you deserve it. Any crit i can find is purely down to my own personal taste so its not worth mentioning, your technique is excellent, bravo!
Quite impressive Kalvin, thanks for sharing, and for the tut.
Fantastic map. I would like to see this map in a litte higher resolution. Or is this already the original size?
The fields are great. It really looks like a picture from space. But I miss there some little towns or even some buildingstructre. Something for your next maps maybe? :)
