    Default Desert Canyon - Dark Sun Battlemaps

    I made this in Photoshop CS6 by taking an internet stock photo of a canyon in a block of cheese (i know right?) and creating a height map out of it in a program called CrazyBump (free demo) and tweaked it in Photoshop.

    I then used a desert texture on top in Multiply blend mode as per Pasis' great bumpmap tutorial and added some rocks and vegetation.

    I feel like it came out pretty nicely, not 100% happy with the rocks I need to find a better way to do them realistically without using objects that looks too obvious.

    Edit: Here is a version using Neyjour's desert rock overlays (thanks for the feedback Jacktannery!) I still would like to find a way to draw quickly rocks and then texture them without relying on objects but these are pretty sweet I have to say and it definitely looks much better.
