    Wip Titania WIP

    Hello all.

    I stumble over a Wacom Bamboo borad yesterday at 30% discount so i couldn't resist! So now i decided to try and make a nice map in PS while i learn how to use a wacom board =)
    If i'm gonna learn things why not learn 2 things at the same time...

    I started yesterday to do the old paper and contour lines for tha land. The only thing i coulden't really get as i wanted was the shape of the land.
    I used the Render -> Cloude, add threshold layer and played around. But i couldn't really get those big and nice landmasses. I might try another technique after work today. And I'll also post a WIP picture.

    Try putting an empty layer just under the threshold and then airbrush white and black on that layer. Use a very low opacity when painting so as to not destroy the clouds too much.

    Looks pretty good. I like the trees. The edges of the paper and continents are a little pixellated - might consider softening those up a bit. The coffee cup rings are to die for!
