Thanks man! Just finished with the map and it looks much better than I could ever be accused of being able to create!
Looks good, man.
Has anyone successfully translated this (very very cool) technique to the GIMP?
I can sort of see bits of it, but I'm still a relative GIMP newbie and can't quite put the whole thing together.
I hope I'm not reviving an old thread. First let me say that I loved how simple and straightforward this tutorial was. Just starting out, the parts on textures and the various blending option were very helpful!
I ran into the same issue with the black section of the building (which were deleted pixels). I think I didn't select the color to delete for Color Mode and the Stroke was showing through. Well, here's my attempt.
I didn't really like the default Clouds texture for the ponds, so I used my own. But it was perfect for the trees.
Good stuff, dude. Glad you liked the tut as well. And don't worry about reviving old threads...there's so many old threads that many new guys never even see the old stuff.
Fear my powers of threadomancy! Neat tutorial. I managed to knock this out today. I think I screwed up the trees, but I think that maybe a signature thing for me. I learned a few things that photoshop could do that I didn't know. I didn't know you could get an action to do this much of the work. Can actions be shared like brushes and such?
Well if it weren't for your threadomancy, Thesslian, I wouldn't have discovered this tutorial. Thank you for your dark powers!
Wow, this seriously just blew my mind. Thank you so much!
Ive automated the process of making this kind of maps... im waiting on my post to be "approved" and i'll link it here
Big thx for this tutorial... thats a great and easy process for on the fly towns designs.
