Unnamed Practice Village Map
[Side note before I even begin. I'm currently burning a candle called Twisted Peppermint, and oh my God it smells so good. Just saying. Seriously. Yum! Now on to my post:]
Someone recommended watching Butch Curry's Fantasy Cartography with Adobe Photoshop on YouTube and I did. Watched the whole series and then last night went to the start and attempted to follow his tutorial. I haven't done all of it yet, but I wanted to share it and ask if you guys think it looks good or stupid :P I'm just doing this to practice some techniques on Photoshop which I had never used before. My graphic arts program experience is all from Paint Shop Pro 7 (which I still love!), but it's not the same at all. [OMG candle smells like candy canes... can I eat the hot wax?]
I've only done up to where he has just shown his way of doing water areas, so I have a lake and a forest so far. And the 'aged' paper. What do you all think? Am I doing okay for a newb at mapping and PS? [How the heck do I add a picture... Did I attach it right?]
Edited 11/13/2011 to add nearly finished project! What do you think?
Edited 11/13/2011 [again] to add finished project!
