    You've deleted the wrong area...the area directly under the landmasses. You're supposed to delete the area away from the land, ie the deep sea.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I was wondering how everyone was generating the nice ocean contours and that answered it for me!

    Hello Ascension,

    firstly, this is a great map and a great tutorial. Secondly, I'm running into some difficulties.

    I'm using Photoshop Elements 7 (if that helps), and am a complete newbie to Photoshop in general. It took some figuring out, but I've been able to follow your tutorial until Step 21, where the gradients come in. I've made the gradient you use, but when I apply it to my map it comes out looking like this.

    What did I do wrong?

    Well, first, the tut doesn't really translate well to Elements because it doesn't have the same features and functions. Second, it looks ok to me. Go a few more steps and then let's see.

    Thanks for this great tut. I tried creating a map by following your instructions step by step and I added some layers for the ice-part in the north and the forests in the southern regions. I posted the map in the WIP section, here

    I'm working on translating this to the GIMP, and whereas I think I'm pretty close, I'd like to post up some step-by-step pics to request advice from everyone on some steps that aren't translating as well as others.

    Should I post that up here, in its own tut thread, or in a WIP thread (and then post up the finished product here)? Don't want to bogart credit, but don't want to hijack this thread, either. So I'm in a quandary. Help?

    Put it here, sort of as a one-stop-shop collecting place. When you finally get it done we'll put it in the first post of the thread.

    Ok, so here's the translation up to the mountains, which is the first place I'm having trouble getting it to look as similar as I'd like. The steps I'm following are in the pdf, and here are pics to this point following the PS tutorial (2nd pic) and the translation (1st pic). The zip contains gradient and palette files for gimp, as well.

    Specifically, I don't like how "hard" the gimp mountains are compared to the original, but I'm not sure how to go about softening them; gimp's bump map works very differently from PS's bevel.

    To be honest, I like the gimp mountains the way they came out. I think you're on to something there!
