    Default 3D Style Mountains

    Hello everyone,

    Today I was playing around in Blender to create a basic terrain for a City i want to map in the future. After sculpting a mountain I suddenly thought, why not make some elements out of it! Rendered it from different sides, post processed in Gimp and here you are, 3 mountain elements for free use:

    here is the elements in use:

    I will probably make some more with different light direction and maybe some other shapes too if I got time.

    happy mapping!

    Thank you,

    I think I should stop adding clouds to the symbols, it does not stack so well. what do you think:

    Very cool! I would personally have the clouds as a separate object that someone could opt to place above especially tall mountains, and not use clouds for every mountain.

    Sounds like a good idea Gamerprinter!

    These clouds are essentially brushes from mark molnars brushset, so I will not post them here, just get them from his page Mark Molnar - Sketchblog of Concept Art and Illustration Works: Mega Brush Pack 2013 or use any grungy brush you prefer!

    some new mountainranges and a bit of fun combining test:

    elements fun combining:

    Edit: hint! begin with the ranges furthest away and work your way forward slightly increasing size. Be careful with the hills, use another layer below mountains and ranges.
