    Default "Fuzzy Caterpillar" Victorian Mountain Brushes


    I'm pretty new to the forum and have been soaking up techniques for antique-style mapping. One thing I hadn't found yet was a good set of Photoshop brushes for simulating Victorian-style hachure mountains, so I decided to make my own. These are sampled from images found at the Perry-Castañeda Maps Collection, mostly maps of Texas from 1830-1840. Also, they were made in Photoshop CS3, in case that makes a difference.

    A variety of styles are represented. For the one-sided "cliff face" styles, note that the direction you draw the stroke determines which direction the elevation faces; it might take some getting used to.

    Let me know if there are any problems with the brushes. And generally speaking, thanks to everybody here for creating a great learning resource!
