I've put my tutorial on my site finally. You can access it via this link: http://www.patoumonde.com/Maps/Valedalewalkthrough.pdf
Sorry for the delay.
Hey there, I saw on the forums that you said you like my maps! I wanted to thank you for your kind words. I mostly use Photoshop, Genetica, sometimes Sketchup, or whatever other tools seem like they can turn out a neat effect. I hope to see some of your work soon!
