    Thanks a lot guys.

    I'm really enjoying making them at the moment, and as they will be useful for my own maps it's kind of a win-win situation for me doing them in one lump like this rather than creating them one at a time as and when I need it. It also means I'm drawing more than I strictly have to so when it comes to placing them I'll have a lot more variation than I would have had.
    And if it helps a few fellow mappers then so much the better.

    I'm toying with the idea of redoing many of them once I've completed enough to call it a set in a much more rough and ready style to form a second set that doesn't quite follow the iso form as slavishly as these are.

    Ok, these are the last 3 castles I'm doing for now.

    I've re-uploaded the Markers.zip file in the original post with all the new castle brushes and I've included all the castles in outline/wireframe brushes too, in case anyone wants to shade their own brushes.

    Next up I'm moving onto the city icons and a few other miscellaneous small icons that I want to do.

    Enjoy.

    Repped. Very nice stuff. Makes me want to make a map just to try them out on it. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks guys.

    JFrazierJr made a relevant comment about the houses being too dark for him so I whipped up an image that you can take outline brushes from if you so desire and shade yourself. There's a few more houses on here than in the brush pack. I need to add some chimneys and make a few more of the bottom row but I ran out of time for now.

    Here's another image with some of those brushes used to make some rougher style hand-drawn houses.

    And lastly, if you're into puzzles while you map, then here's an image to get you going.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks.. how about a few simple arched gate towers. So.. two towers connected by an arched walkway. Thinking about something for entrance to my Dwarven kingdom and having trouble making it myself.

    Sure, I'll have a crack at it today at some time.

    Ok. here's some very simple gateways.

    If you'd like some refinement or something completely different then just let me know. I'm not sure if you want squat, tall, wide, curved, angular etc. etc.

    Yep, that top right one is EXACTLY what I was trying to do last night. I got it ok, but could not get the "inner"(far side) arch to come out correctly...

    Another to try would be the circular tower approach might be nice too..

    THANKS!!!!
