    Post January/February 2012 Lite Challenge Entry: Compass Rose in Brass and Blue

    I wasn't planning on entering this challenge as I am not great at drawing things either by hand or digitally. I am more a cut & paste & edit kind of guy.
    But then I found this gold foil texture that looks like brass when I darkened it and a picture of a fancy brass serving tray that had a face that kind of looks like that picture I see on maps of the cloud face blowing the wind across the ocean and I started getting Ideas.
    So I opened up Photoshop with these textures and started cutting and pasting and editing and it came together pretty well. When I took a Grunge texture by struckdumb at Deviant art and changed it to a deep ocean blue the Brass Rose really popped.

    I have included the rose by itself as a png with transparency so you can use it on a map and the final version displayed on the blue background.

    Sorry about the double post, the (latest wip) thingy didn't pickup the one I wanted it to.
    So by just posting the right one here it should show the final one.

    Thanks alanrex. While I have made lots of mapping items, this is first time I built something like this totally from scratch.

    Mmm ... brassy and shiny! Maybe you could put a bit of a drop shadow on the ring, where it goes under the rose?
