    Default PS mountains from newbie for newbies

    This small tutorial about making mountains (in exemple of one mountain) on global map. Using my methodics. It will take 9-12 steps.

    1. Fist of all you must drow some background green or grey best.
    2. Then take simple 2 px round brush with opacity 85-95% and flow 40-50% and make very basic sketch of mountain.
    3. Chose black and make some primitive shadow.
    4. Then some more lines for relief.
    5. Make whole mountain darker and add some more details whith lines.
    6. Paint it with brown from one side.
    7. Dark brown in another side (do not remove all black by this)
    8. Add some primitive foothills of mountain.
    9. Add some more details by drak lines to mountain and foothills.

    You can stop here.


    10. More work whith black - detailed and accurate.
    11. Optional snow-hat for our mountain.
    12. Then image can be enchanted with more color and additional details or change it any way you want - taller, smaller, more snow e t.c.

    I hope this will be useful at least for someone : )
