    Oh, and as I haven't posted these already I may as well do so now before I trot off to bed.

    The first is the outline of the churches I did. I've cleaned this up a lot and fixed some issues with it being a little warped.

    The next one is a few more castle variations. I thought I had done another with the fairytale castle plonked directly in the square-towered wall but I guess not. That's another on my to-do list.

    Once I've done some more city icons and shaded them then I'll re-upload a brush pack. Maybe it would be better to upload two so the outline brushes can be kept separate. I do intend to shade all the outlines by the way.

    That gets me to thinking, maybe you might want to do a tut for helping people build up their own brush/stamp libraries...like what sort of things they're going to need, keeping perspectives aligned, stuff like that. It's one thing for us all to take your stuff and use it but then all of our maps look the same so if we could do our own then we each get to add our own flavor. Sure, not everyone is an artist but for those of us who are I think that could be quite handy.

    You're probably right, Ascension but I'm sure someone else could write such a tutorial better than me. I've just been thinking about it and I'm just not sure how much I could write about it. I might give it a crack later and see if I can write enough content to make it worthwhile.

    Right, here are the latest city images. I've only added one more new outline at the moment but the night is still young. What I have done though is shaded it and also shaded the other two that I posted last night.

    Gonna do a couple more and then leave cities for a while.

    I think you'd be perfect. You've done a bunch and therefore have a working knowledge that the rest of us don't have...I've only done a handful and you could give pointers on shading that I couldn't. Anyways, up to you my friend.

    Oh, I don't think it is a question of a tutorial. I know what I need to make icons like that. I need to practice lots of drawing until I get much, much better at it. Mine look like this:
