Thanks for the rep. Boy that was awhile ago ! In that instance I did some pre work in Photoshop "Levels" to bring out the contrast. "Color range" to remove the ocean. I also made separate masks for separate heights so that once in Wilbur I could concentrate on different heights separately. Back in photoshop I used " lighting effects" to further adjust the light and shadows. I've progressed alot since then ! Check out August's challenge or well of souls in my album.
I joined this forum last week after finding this huge trove of impressive work.
Out of sheer curiosity I did a search for a particular search term on this forum and a post of yours popped up as the (only) match.
Apparently you play or played Particracy at some point? I'm its creator :-)
Thanks for the RepWhack on the heraldry images
