    Oh, nice. It will save me a couple of hours (or couple of days)! I had no idea to draw trees.

    Ok, a few more castles to add to the mix. I'm not going to re-upload the brushes set until I get a few more in there but for now, if anyone is absolutely desperate for an iso castle you can get one from this image...

    I have several more different type of castle I'm going to add in but I've run out of time tonight.

    Those keeps got me to thinking...we need to get a list together of different castle styles. We're all familiar with the peaked roof kind and the Gothic battlement style but what are some others? What are the proper names? Ive got a bunch of castle books and I'll see what I can find out and maybe post some pics.

    I like these a lot and can't wait for the next zip. Ok, well, I can, but you know what I mean

    Ah, crud.

    Just when I had completely settled on a style I go and try colouring an icon, a la Ascension's Elosha.

    I had planned on making another pass at Aronbor once I'd finished my set of icons, (Perdon is on hold while I make these as it will save me having to go back and change them but also I'm just having a lot more fun drawing these at the moment than I am doing a map ) but I had no intention of adding colour.

    But I just love how this turned out with a very simple shading. I just KNOW I'm going to have to colourize a whole map. :S

    Ah well... I've done another two castle brushes tonight but I'll post an image later as I've also started another castle which is a bit more detailed and I want to get it done first.

    It does look pretty cool. Maybe you could turn the opacity down to just give a hint of color and thus stay closer to the original vision. But that's up to you, I like it either way

    Those castles are just utterly lovely.

    Ramah, am I being thick? i think the purple turrets work really well with the green. But then my wife says I have no sense of colour coordination at all (clothes)...she laughs at how I can agonise about the colours I use in maps and then go out the next morning with a pink shirt and blue tie.

    Hehe. Well, I don't think you are being thick, I think it is the vibrant colour against that green that really makes it stand out. It really reminds me of the old maps in the Lone Wolf books which I used to love.
    That being said... you walk outside in some green trousers and a purple shirt then you are just begging for funny looks.

    Do you know, I don't even notice. But then apart from work clothes (Felicity's domain) I just wear brown, green and gray.
