Trees and cities from high altitude
I'm trying to draw (in Photoshop) trees from a place where it's possible to see 15 kilometers on one 1920 pixels screen.
The best I did was to make squares of trees, with shadow and Bevel and Emboss (with texture). I also added some noise, but it's far from perfect...
So... I don't see any tutorial precisely on this subject, because most of the maps here come with more details of the ground. If you have some lead, that'd be great :)
(Same thing for cities)
