    For the mountains I use to stick with brushes. More time consuming but with sets with a lot of mountains I wouldn't feel comfortable with some huge mountains patterns layer on my map while working.

    two questions:

    1 - how u do this cliffs? you draw it in the map or create a brush for it?

    2 - you said that not use clone to make the mountains, i cant understand how it overlap not using the clone, coz brushes have a transparent background.
    I asked it long time ago and the only solution to overlap was using the clone.

    btw, i liked the name of the Muraille

    I draw cliffs on the map. That's very simple. Here's a quick tut I made some weeks ago for The Hoarse Whisperere to explain it (from the map of Kerngard) :

    I do not use clone tool for mountains because I have like 500 mountains/hills for this map and having a layer with this number of elements doesn't make sense. To use the clone tool properly, I should draw mountains ranges before building the map which I'm not comfortable with. I prefer buildings the mountains directly on the map.

    OHHHH you do it in your finishing work!!!
    It make the things much more clear! I was working in everything in a base file before put it in a other with template, lines, labels everything. Just work with a few details in the finishing template *dang

    and, i was talking about the "Gorges de Sylin", but guess you do the same

    Not sure to understand. I'm working in only one photoshop file with all my layers.

    And yes, I do lands cliffs the same as coastal cliffs

    Updated : Finished two more territories and added the geographic elements on most of the northern part of Selvarin. Still have to label it, work on 4 minor coats of arms and finish 2 minor territories. After that I'll be done with the land, hopefully this week-end. Next step will be sea labeling (and maybe colours change on it)

    Finally lands are done I also increased the shields size a bit and slightly adjusted the sea colour. Full map uploaded version is around 50% size and northern/southern parts of the maps are around 2/3 size (all with resolution decreased to fit the standards uploads sizes)
