For lands maps I draw some elements with 2mm, 1mm or 0,5mm ink pen then scan them and import them in Photoshop and turned them into brushes or patterns. Then I work all the other stuff in photoshop. For city maps I draw all the outlines with the same pens, scan and import the whole thing in PS, set it to multiply and work on several layers for the coloring work. Hope it helps
Hey -Max- I'm pretty new here and was instantly drawn to your maps, I myself am an extreme amateur at the creation of realistic or fantasy maps, I like to learn more and I normally hand-draw them. Currently being in the U.S Navy I don't have much time, but I'd like to devote some time bettering this hobby. I was also curious as to what you use to edit/drawl your maps, and if you have any tips or advice?
