    Wip September Entry: Tir na Mor Rioghna

    First post to a challenge, still very WIP and flavorless. Mostly made in photoshop with the mountain brush presets I found on this site plus generous tweaking, and I ran the poster edges filter over it.

    Any suggestions?

    Wow, poster edges really makes that outstanding, good job.

    Much thanks guys.

    The filters are all standard option stuff, poster edges and lots of fiddling with contours. I got the swamps the way I did through an overly complicated process and everything got applied a liberal spattering of different colors.

    There is still so much I need to do for this. A question: am I doing something wrong that my map isn't showing up in the thumbnail gallery?

    No you're fine... sometimes the script hangs when we have a lot of entries... or something technical like that ... redrobes will come by sooner or later and fix it up for you...

    The mountain brushes I used are posted somewhere on this site, going along with a very sexy layer style that comes as part of the pack. I recall I changed the color of the mountains to match the landscape, and then put another layer on top with the mountains again in white. If that makes sense. Here are two pics along the way to show how it's going.

    The symbols are bugging me. Does anyone know of any shapes, brushes, or clip art that had towns, castles, or other medieval objects of note. What I am specifically looking for is icons for standing stone. You know, Dolmens, Cromlechs, that sort of thing. Hell, I would even settle for a Cruach.

    Here the nice India Ink map, which is sort of a diversion.

    And that settles it that I will NOT be putting the India Ink filter on the final product. Here it is the ever-popular sun faded filter run over everything.

    If anyone is curious the flag is the standard of Tir no Mor Rioghna, and the three shields are the symbols of the three major clans that make up the country. I'm going to write in little capsule entries for each of them soon.
