    Max, with the mountain process, how many layers does it end up being? (and what layer blends do you generally use? )

    In this case, I have 10 layers (one for each process stage). If I had to use them on a map, I would probably end up with 6 (1 merged outlines layer - step 1,2 and 3, 1 shadow1 layer, 1 shadow2 layer, 1 highlight1 layer, 1 highlight2 layer, 1colors layer), this will allow flexibility to play with the depth of shadows and highlights if needed. As for layers blend, you can either use normal mode with a high range of contrasted colors or use multiply for shadows and screen for highlights.

    Respect! After doing the roofs on the Ledge and Dairy Inn I have a new appreciation for those shingles. If you ever feel like it, I'd love to see the steps you go through making a map like this building, I really love the look. I think my current lite challenge entry is pretty much an attempt to emulate your style...

    cheers,
    Meshon
