I think that will fix your problem.
    Thank you for the super fast response!

    Turns out I somehow skipped the step where you make the mask for the Land layer. After going back and putting it in and regrouping all of the layers above it it works perfectly. Thanks!

    Done. I can't thank you enough for this tutorial; I've waited a long time for this!

    The one most common critique I get is that the coastlines are too smooth. I'm rather ambivalent about it, but wonder if anyone has any ideas for roughing them up? I've tried a few low-level things that haven't really worked.

    This is definitely the best tutorial I've come across so far! Thank you so much for this!

    I'm in the process of applying it to my own world's lineart and so far the results are simply amazing!!! I will be posting the results of it when the map is finished!

    For GIMP Users: The earlier link to a GIMP plugin implementing layer styles is broken. Here is a new link. I have not yet tried them out but intend to do so. Hopefully it will help us make use of this wonderful tutorial.

    [Award Winner] Saderan – a tutorial-randonia.jpg

    Well, not quite the style I set out to create. Using the GIMP layer style substitutes is a bit wonky - you need to do your painting and then apply them, but I got used to the process. I messed up a bit with the scale and stuff for the land, so the coast and land styles don't match up. Once I realized I had gone more or less off the tutorial, I decided to start experimenting and ended up with something that is serviceable if not nearly as beautiful as the Saderan style I set out to create.

    Well, I'll keep trying. This first attempt was damn instructive, though. Thanks again for the tutorial, Tear! It's teaching me a lot.

    That's a great tutorial indeed. Thank you for sharing it, Tear, but now that i have the landmasses ready, the mountains, rivers and everything i am not quite sure how to proceed. I am at the last step (placing the vegetation) but i have no idea how to make deserts. Could someone give me a tip or anything?

    When I started this it was supposed to be a quick test to see what I can do with it, hence using the original Vaniya base map. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to carry on with this and see what I can get out of it in the end so I'll probably have to add the extra rivers etc. that I added to the Aronbor map.

    Anyway... loving this tut. Excellent stuff, Tear. Thanks.
    3 years after you did the map a congratulation from me. Really one of my favorite of this style. How did you manage to make these very good looking mountains (if you remember after all this time)?


    And of course, Saderan you did really great job with your tutorial.

    I have photoshop 6 and this tutorial works great for my version. I suppose you will not have any problem with photoshop 3.
