PS : swamps and jungle ?
I work on my first world map with Photoshop, inspired by the "Saderan" tutorial.
But I need a swamp and a jungle texture/effect to complete the map.
Do you have the "how to" ?
I would just copy the same techniques used for doing the large grassland areas but use a darker green or maybe a teal. That way it stays the same in terms of style.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Ok, I found how to make credible swamps :
- new layer (over land & grass)
- layer fx : bevel & emboss / pillow emboss (size 3, soften 3)
- paint with a spatter brush, water color, 100 % (small touches)
It's visually acceptable, and easy to reproduce.
But I'm not satisfied with the jungle. So, one more try...
I will post a WIP when I'd recover my personal uploading space password, lol !
