    Tutorial [Award Winner] My atlas style in PS

    I might be giving away the farm on this one, since I consider this to be my best style, but since I like to teach and make a tut for just about everything -- I present to you my atlas style. It's not meant to be the end-all be-all but rather an introductory course...where you can take it and adapt and change things as you see fit. I know my tuts tend to be lengthy and sometimes difficult so I'll do my best to help you out with any questions/problems you might have.

    The tutorial looks like it took a lot of work and I certainly love this style. A lot. I love the bright color, the sea and the ice to the north. And the golden font... darn, so much to learn

    Repped...

    I may be snowed or iced in tomorrow. If so, I know what I'll be doing . Thanks.

    I looked it through and I am impressed. It looks really easy... How long have you spent perfecting your style?

    About 2 weeks shy of 2 years. I've got some of my first psd files still on the hard drive somewhere and I've been thinking of converting them to jpg and posting them up so that everyone can snicker at my river violations

    Very interesting tutorial. I can't seem to get it to work but that's because there are several areas I am confused on. Regardless though it has given me some neat ideas on how I can make my maps better.

    A really great tutorial!
    You popped up with it right after I thought "It would be nice to get a good atlas tutorial"... I'm gonna spend a lot of time to learn it and adapt to my techniques.
    Thank you very much for this one!
