    Post Lazy Man's City

    I got inspired by Ascension's thread here on how to build a city quickly using filters. I think I have it now. I present - the Lazy man's city. This took about 4 hours but with experimentation. Second time round it should take an hour or less to do. I'm using Xenoflex's 'Little fluffy clouds filter' which allows you to make tiling clouds where you can adjust the cloud size and fractal type - (why or why don't photoshop make these adjustments standard?) and their 'Classic Mosaic' filter to build this, but I think that photoshop's native 'Stained Glass' will work just as well.

    It's quite adjustable in terms of texture and where you want to put roads and things. The buildings are just a tad too NSEW oriented but broken up just enough so the eye is fooled.

    Also discovered quite a good way to make nice looking realistic fields on the way too.

    Tutorial coming.
