    First post. w00t!!

    This community looks great, and Ascension's tutorials are clearly a huge part of the reason why. So much generosity is both humbling and inspiring.

    This atlas tutorial in particular is a wealth of excellent information, and just to my taste. I'm going to work my way through it this weekend and, if it succeeds, will post the results. Thanks for such a wonderful gift.

    Not sure if this will produce the exact same results, but if memory serves me you could:

    copy the layer again

    I've just glanced over this tutorial, and I can tell it's one I'm going to *have* to try out! This style of yours really appeals to me. Wonderful work!

    You need to use two layers instead of the Hard Mix, one 50% grey and set to Dodge and the other should be black and set to Burn.

    Just joined up and saw this tutorial and your result looked amazing so I figured I'd give it a go as my first map ^^. The tutorial was extremely easy to follow however I had a bit of a problem that I can't figure out. My brush seems to have left quite a few marks throughout the map and I was wondering if you knew how to avoid this problem.

    Looks great!...other than those strokes It looks like you have the brush properties set to something other than normal. First click on the brush tool, then at the top you will see the word "Mode" in the box next to that, make sure it says Normal and not something like multiply or difference. It could be that you did the airbrushing on it's own layer and never merged it down onto the clouds layer, thus you're getting some artifacts from that. If that's not it lemme know and I'll see if I can replicate this effect (might take me a while since I'll be experimenting a lot to find the needle in the haystack).

    It looks like that fixed it, I had it set to normal before but I had an airbrush button pressed. I just tried again with the airbrush button not on and it didn't leave the marks as far as I can tell with just doing up to the land step. ^^

    Thanks a ton
