    Incredibly awesome contribution; just downloaded Boslok's Todes Grube mountains & trees resources - these will complement really well. For those of you with PS, I went ahead and created Photoshop brushes of all the images RobA has uploaded. I have CS4, so I apologize to those of you who won't be able to use these.

    Sorry for the Necro, but I would still suggest getting to know GIMP even if you don't use it primarily. There are a few things it can do significantly better (or even exclusively) over photoshop. If I had the money for PS, I would likely buy it and use it, but still use GIMP for the few things it does superior(or again, things PS just can't do).

    Out of the box things GIMP does that PS can't(at least this is my understanding, which could be wrong):

    • Better cloud variation (ie, size/scale as well as "sharpness")
    • Full color brushes!!!!!!
    • Animated Brushes(part of this has to do with GIMP's lack of brush dynamics, but there are cases where this is a real honest to goodness stand alone feature worth having.)
    • Scriptability


    There might be some other things I missed.

    Two words to add to jfrazierjr's list: Bump Map. The lighting/beveling/embossing photoshop has to offer have always felt way too rounded (not to mention COMPLICATED) to me. GIMP is much easier. Height map -> Bump Map -> 3d!

    These buildings and trees are awesome. Thanks for posting them!

    Wow! I really like the way you use the clumps of trees to make large forests. Keep it up!

    I like the style of art, but I prefer to make maps from a more decorative 3/4 view (not top down). I'd love to see your buildings from more angles.
