    Tutorial [Award Winner] Photoshop Town Tutorial

    This is by no means complete and I haven't even finished proofreading it yet. There are no screenshots and I can't really answer questions either since I'm still editing it and changing techniques. It is long, it is hard, and it is complex. You will probably get confused and have many questions. I just wanted to put this up here for those who are going to do this current challenge...just to have something to get you started. I hope to have it done by the end of next week and chopped into smaller sections. So if you do get lost then just make up stuff and try new things...that's what I'm doing too This is just temporary and I'll be updating things as I go. Please bear with me and good luck. This is an Open Office doc file so if it corrupted then let me know. On the good side...you all get to be beta testers The pic below shows where I am in terms of proofreading so that is why it is incomplete. The terrain part is pretty well nailed down, though, so you should be able to get that part done.

    I haven't read it yet (preparing for game in 15 minutes) but I am sure this will be as good as the rest of your stuff sir

    Excellent, file is downloaded and as soon as i get to taking a break from the current map, I'll start reading through (and probably try it out shortly thereafter)

    Awesome! I'm off to bed, soon, and work tomorrow, but I'm definitely going to have to take a look at this.

    Geidor's nearing completion of a first draft (I think I'm going to have it printed tomorrow, just because I can. Well, and because I need to test something at work, but I prefer the previous reason), and I'm going to need a new map project very soon. I hadn't decided, yet, whether I'd do another world, or a city, but this might just decide it.

    I have no doubts that its up to your usual quality work, and will check it out in the near future.

    I've been working on it ona nd off for the last 2 days, I've been keeping a word document of notes regarding changes that may be considered (there's at least one spot where I needed to reset a brush before using it again, took me a while to figure it out, for example). Mostly it's little stuff though, though i've been keeping a log of my own personal working notes too

    I like it so far, it's VERY thorough.
