It depends on how the book will be printed. On some books you'll have to use only black and white colors, on some others, you'll be able to use shades of grey. Make sure what options are allowed with your client, his publisher will know that
Dear Guilder. It is traditional for me to solicit advice on my contest entries especially when they bomb so badly. It is the only way to Improve ! So if you can spare a few minutes what exactly was it that you personally found lacking in my entry “The Dark Journey “ Was it too simple ; Hard to understand : Too plain ?? Or something else ? I am asking so be blunt Thanks in advance for the advice ! It will help me Improve ! Sincerely lostatsea
Thanks for voting for my map. I didn't include a safari (car-)bus, but I hope you saw that I added a carbus enclosure . THW
Hmm, I believe you mean the caterpillar style? If so, it's fairly easy, just lines to form a hill. You can either draw those individually (Which looks better.) Or, do what I did on the Bandit Hiedout, and use paths for it (If you have photoshop, anyway.) Just make a selection, right click, and set as work path, make a line brush with a decent spacing between the lines, and stroke it, select the path, contract as much as you want, and then stroke again, rinse and repeat.
Now, if you're talking about the hills on my Battlemaps, thats different, it's essentially a shadow and rock texture overlaid on top of where I want the hill to be, oh, and the top of the hill is a lighter color.
Thanks for the Rep and the Vote!
Thanks Carbus, nice of you to say that !
