    I've gone through the tutorial a few more times and the brush strokes still seem to show up. They make their appearance after copying "Ocean" and making "Land". When I apply the lighting affect they become very prominent. I thought it would just be me clicking int he same spot a few times when trying to get my land mass how I want it but it seems even long held down brush strokes create the problem.

    Any ideas?

    All right, got it. After much experimenting I finally got it just like what you show. What I did was to take a hard round brush tip, then scale it up to 300...when I then paint it leaves the rings. What you need is the airbrush tip and not a hard round tip set to airbrush in the brush control panel. Use the Airbrush Soft Round 300 tip (or 100 or whatever). Just clicking on the airbrush button in the brush control panel does not give it an airbrush quality.

    Ah it must have been the hard round that was doing it to me because I tried it with airbrush both on and off. Thanks a ton Ascension ^^ Really appreciate you taking the time to help me out.

    --edit--

    That was definitely it ^^ Just went through and did one that's much better I think. I also realized I had the lighting for the hills set up incorrectly and the color is much better this time around.

    Hmm, I have a very hard time following the tutorial. I seem to be doing fine, but when I get to the picture at step 22, it looks absolutely nothing like what Ascensions tutorial shows (see attachment). I figure it might already be going wrong at step 11, but I'm not sure. I like the tutorial, I just can't seem to get it right :/
    Is there a crucial step or detail I might be missing?

    (Also, ignore the weird island-shape, I'm just trying to figure out how it works )


    EDIT: Alright I seem to have found my problem. When you start to add colour, I first selected the base layer, so all further layer styles were applied to that layer, instead of to the land layer.


    EDIT 2: Another try. I'm not very fond of the outcome, there are some areas definitely needing improvement. However, I can see myself using some of these techniques on future maps, especially to throw in some texturing on my (normally) handdrawn and -painted maps.
    Thank you for the tutorial, Ascension

    Sorry I couldn't get back to ya sooner there Sirith, I work at my biz every day, half days on weekends, so I am usually indisposed until the afternoons/evenings. I'm glad you were able to mend it and if you have any further questions just ask

    Hate to dig this up and bother you, but I'm screwing up somewhere around step 19 in your tutorial.

    (First time poster, total PS newbie, I found this thread through another site; great tutorial and method!)

    It says to apply the same lighting effects to the hill and land layer...well, when I do this, I get an image that's WAY darker than your example, or anyone else's. The color is correct without the lighting render, but then the texture obviously wrong.

    What's the newbie doing wrong?
