    Tutorial [Award Winner] Making maps in Photoshop

    Hi there.

    I discovered this forum a week or so ago. A great place! I've been doing some tutorials, originally inspired by fellow creative writers over at the Chronicles Network as we were talking about Map making there on a map creation thread and this map thread.

    Since being here at CG it's pretty clear how little I know! Wilbur was a brilliant find and I'm looking forward to going through the other tutorials here and checking out various software.

    So without further a-do, here are the tutorials...

    EDIT - the above are downloadable PDF documents. You can get a reader here

    EDIT - Until further notice, this thread is the place to download them from, they no longer on my web site ,as it was more to showcase my portfolio to get a job, I just havent had time to provide a space for them. You can always contact me should they break here or something. If I dont get back within a week, then send another - you're email's probably got lost in my junk mail, I'll always respond to fellow creators if I spot ya

    please note: my website is now is now located @ (NOT as stated on the tutorials - you'll get a dead link)...I've gone global - there's a contact form there if you need my help.

    Thanks for your interest in them!
