    Post WIP Photoshop based on Pyrandons tutorial

    Hi. So I've never really been that great with photoshop , mostly because all I have is a silly touchpad. But I found Pyrandons Tutorial (which is pretty damn good, opened up alot of doors) albeit unfinished (it stops in the middle of the defining the buildings/roads part) SO here is what I have done so far:
    The thick red line is where the major walls will be, also I am yet to place the castle. (I have no idea how to represent this) But it will be inside the smaller circle. I think the water levels could have used more attention, but my wrist started hurting. All in all I think it is not a bad first shot at using PS to make a map. Thanks to Pyrandon for the awesome tutorial.

    That is a nice start! My only criticism would be that the outlaying areas are a bit orthogonal, rather than following the roads or terrain. Building things following NSEW usually wouldn't happen in a city with walls.

    Oh wow. Thanks rob its so obvious now that you mention it. Truth be told I will probably scrap this thing completely. After a while it just turned into an endless clusterF&*$% of layers.

    It DID look rather nice though, if a little too reddish brown to me though.

    That looks, great, Perfect! Nice work!!!!!

    I am a bit confused though, for you say the tutorial is unfinished... All parts are there & available, so you should be able to create an entire map using it. Let me know if you have trouble finding them or doing this, and thanks again for posting this--I'm so glad you did. Makes my day!
