    Help Coastlines!!

    I need help making coastlines on Photoshop for pen and paper inserted maps, but I want to make the coastlines in Photoshop. I would prefer coastlines like the ones in the WoW world map or something similar to that, but I'll take any help I get. Please help!

    Go to google images, type in wow world map, and choose the 4th one in the 1st row, that's the coastline type I'd like to make, or something like that

    If I'm looking at the same one then you're talking about the antique-style map with a woodcut effect on the coasts. There are a handful of tutorials here on that, do a keyword search. In fact someone just posted a link to a tut by S. John Ross today in a different thread.

    It looks like a fairly standard woodcut style, except with an offset solid stroke.

    Just today there was a link posted to the S. John Ross tutorial (photoshop) and the a local tut on a similar effect with Gimp.

    Moved to general discussion.
