    Info My Tree and Mountain Brushes & Patterns

    Howdy Folks

    I finally got around to organizing my Tree and Mountain brushes & Patterns to share with the community. They are all meant for use in Photoshop but if somone can make them work in gimp and other programs, please be my guest.

    I used Photoshop CS3 to create these brushes and Patterns. These are the same brushes I used in A Comprehensive Mat of Avani, and my work in progress Avani's Western Lands

    Anyone familiar with Photoshop shouldn't have too much trouble importing these brushes or defining these textures. I'll try to post a tutorial on how to do that in this thread when I get the chance.

    These brushes are free for anyone to use on their maps and I hope people can enjoy them. I do not require any references or links to myself or anything goofy like that. The only thing I ask is that you do not try to relabel and sell these brushes as your own. They are meant to be free to all who can use them. I would even prefer people obtain them thru the Cartographers Guild so please keep re-distribution to a minimum as well, instead, please inform them of this forum and where they can find the brushes.

    You may use these brushes in maps in your own artwork and cartography even if you intend those works to be sold. I hope everyone can use and enjoy this little pack. Thanks to everyone in this wonderful community!

    Here are some samples of the Brushes:

    This was exactly what I was looking for! I'll be experimenting with these brushes in my Japanese-style political map.

    By the way, I just dumped the files in my .gimp-2.6\brushes folder and they worked immediately. Do brushes made for GIMP specifically work better in GIMP, or is this fine?

    This is fine.

    Gimp can happily use this style of brush (they are internally converted on load).

    Awesome! Thanks for the sweet brush pack. Hmm I wonder if there's a way in photoshop to assign symbols to a que so that each time you click it chooses the next one. Would be a nice way to randomize mountains and trees.

    Nope.

    But gimp and psp can.

    Attached is a set of three gimp image hoses. one trees, one dead trees and one mountains. The mountain one is huge, so use with caution

    Man, that would be sweet for quick mapmaking. I haven't found anything like that just yet I'm afraid, but it wouldn't surprise me if there was a way to do it somehow. I know you can do a "dual brush" in photoshop somehow. I'm not sure how that works or if you can do more than two. If I ever find a way I'll be sure to post.
