I've been using this site, forums and tutorials off an on for quite some time. I've made some pretty incredible maps actually -- all thanks to the wonderful help and tutorials that everyone has offered.
I've come to really enjoy using brushes for map doodads, such as trees and mountains and the like, and have decided to showcase an island (unfortunately the main map is 14megs) of what I have done recently, as well as attach all the brushes I've used to make it (Gimp only).
I'd appreciate thoughts and comments. Enjoy!
This is a great example of an old school drawn look. It reminds me of some of the really old maps I've found on college library sites. Thanks for sharing this, it's so cool.
I did notice that the shadows on the trees differ in direction from the ones on the mountains.
