    Wip Ignaros

    Hi

    I am trying out the style from pasis tutorial on how to rise mountains.
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...s-in-Photoshop

    Here are my current version. I'm looking for feedback on to improve. Since I have a bias as the maker I might miss obvious faults. I want to know if there are anything that immediatly seem "off".

    Besides, what do people think about the shape of the map?

    Edit: Sent up the latest version to first message

    I like the landshape, although it does remind me a lot of Europe but that's probably because I've been seeing to many Europe maps these days.

    You might want to either increase or decrease the scale on the texture used in the mountains, as they are they look a little too rough and a bit granulated. Maybe fiddle around with them I haven't used Pasis' style in a while but thats just my thought.

    -D-
    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    drop the texture down on the mountains, and then make another layer just like it on top of it and do the higher mountains on top then blend the two together, should give a little more depth

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    I've played around with textures and merge, and here are the result. I think looks better.

    Been toying around with the landmass and some colouring. It's quite satisfying seeing improvements.

    It still seem a bit rough, but I don't know what to do about that. I'd also like to add some forest areas, but I am unsure how to do that. Any tip?
