No problem captive, glad you like it
Stunning. So inspiring. Thanks for sharing!
I can't wait to see it finished! That really turns great, I really appreciate the level of details you put on this map (the great wall is lovely )
Reading through this thread, it astounds me how you just started in a corner and just filled in the details - and wonderful details, might I add. I need to figure out this rep thing, and give some.
Holy Jesus! This map is amazing, I really want to see it finished.
Thanks you much guys, for your kind comments appreciated. Glad you like the WIP
@ N8ey, yes I often use to start in a corner and then fill up or down the whole map. That's how I really feel building up the map For the rep, you need at least to have 30 posts before being able to spread some reputation around
the pale red icons - like the crossed swords or the circular thingies; are they just decoration (i doubt it) or do they represent battles, and um, other stuff? and if so will they be included in the key later on?
the trees - are the a pattern or a brush?
looking very pretty, as always
I'm not sure to understand how you're doing forests with a pattern
first I scan individual hand drawn trees, add colors and build some little blocks of trees by selecting and stamping individual trees with the clone tool. On my map file I import the tree blocks on a small size colored background. Then I use the clone tool to build larger forests on the map buy selecting and stamping the tree blocks on my forest layer ( from top to bottom). Schwartzkreuz did post some tut about it with mountains in the tutorial section.
