Thread: [Award Winner] Desert pools

    Post [Award Winner] Desert pools

    So I was doodling around in Photoshop with no goal in mind...and my doodling produced the "map" below. I'm thinking it's part of a sandy desert currently flooded by an unexpected rainfall. My question is, does it work for you? As in, do you also see a sand dune desert with pools of water?

    Pretty much the first thing that came to mind when I saw it was sand and water.

    Works for me...put in some fields and irrigation ditches, some paths and carts and tents and you've got a proper flooded Nile valley.

    Thanks for the replies people. I don't think I'll do anything more with this particular map, since it's obviously the middle of nowhere and I don't have any idea what to do with it.

    @Ravells: Yes, and I have a brush and layer style saved for it. It does make for some nice sand dunes, and decent mountains as well with some adjustment. Let me know if you want them.
