Xamel WIP - towns and roads finished

by wisemoon on 07-11-2010 at 04:27 PM
I've made a few modifications to the town and fortification icons, and added roads. Not entirely happy with the roads; may try a different method or just change them up a bit later on.

Xamel WIP - Mountains, Forests and Rivers finished

I'm still not quite satisfied with it somehow, but overall I think the result is quite impressive. Especially compared to the original hand-drawn map.

Here's the results so far:

Xamel Region of Demetia - WIP

So I don't know why the mountain technique wasn't working last time, but I deleted the "mountain" layers from the image and decided to start over. This time, I did a "save as" and created a whole new file to do trial-and-error on. For some reason, this time it worked pretty well:

I don't really like the placement of the mountains, though. Now that I know how the technique is supposed to work (I think), I can go back and change it.
