    If you use the tree brush/tool/thingy on the river layer, you can create a swampy area that looks pretty good. I love these tutorials by the way.

    Hey RPBMapMaker. I'd like to say thanks for this tutorial. I was looking for a way to make a realistic map and this is just perfect. Thanks soo much!
    This is the map I made through your tutorial. Its for a fantasy world Im creating. This is the realm of Athanas. Ive yet to add in the cities/fortress/roads etc. Thanks again.

    i've duplicated the tree and mountain layers and got some nice colours for making some other mountains, and even some cherry blossom forests

    YOUR TOOLS ARE AWESOME

    Great tutorial, so much so that it provokes a first post from me. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing, some of the examples are looking really good. Any plans on an update on your thoughts to getting a decent coastline or larger body of water using this style?

    I'd like to add a map to this thread, but am not overly hopeful of getting anything worthwhile finished!

    Anyhow, great work!

    -------- Edit ---------

    My first map!!

    Again, thanks a lot for sharing, it's certainly helped me to get a map finished (well, nearly finished anyway!)

    I tried this .psd file too and i liked the results. One question or request for RPGMapMaker or anyone with an equivalent version PhotoShop to what he used.

    I can work with the file perfectly well in my elements 6 copy but if i try to alter his layers to use my own color overlay on the mountains i can't recreate the effect, maybe not possible in elements? If someone who can, would upload a version without the mountains pre-colored brown I'd appreciate it. I'd like to try it with other colors for the mountains.

    Hey RPGMapMaker
    I've just spent the past week searching for a cartographers software package, but didn't have much luck.
    I had all ready decided that any close ups of important villages/towns were going to be created using ZBrush, however due to the poor results of my software search I decided I had no choice but to create my world maps with ZBrush. That was until I found your tutorial videos on youtube last night.

    I have used Photoshop for years and even created my own brushes, however your videos opened some exciting new doors for me. THANK YOU!
    It's strange how similar your workflow was to using ZBrush. It really blew me away.
    Thanks again for sharing the time and hard work you obviously spent developing this technique. YOU ARE A STAR!!!

    Looks like this is what I'll be trying to use for my first "real" attempt at a map. Thanks for the tutorial. I'll let you know how things go.

    I had to pop in here and give you praise for your generosity and talent. Thank you for all the hard work you put into map making and then sharing your knowledge and efforts with the community.

    I've been drawing paper maps for years but learning on the computer has been challenging and because of people like you and all the other contributors to this site the task has gotten easier and enjoyable.
