I thought I'd share how the tutorials are affecting my mapmaking skills :)
Well I spent today working through Ascensions Atlas style tutorial and I'm pretty blown away by what he's achieved - and been gracious enough to share. I thought I post my map before I read the tutorial and after to compare and contrast the difference that a single tutorial made to my output!
Geographically it's an abomination lol but it's nice to take a step up the old learning curve.
Another walk through the same tutorial but with a bit of my own input this time.
Here's another go with the same atlas - this time I used the file straight out of the Fractal Terrains package to see if I could use the actual raw terrain image but I don't really think it worked. I kinda like the way the water came out on this one though :)
