    Wip Roadside

    Here is a little of something I started today. This is going to be a roadside encounter and will be used in my game in few weeks. This is basically my first battlemat I’m doing, so I guess I’ll be redoing things many times before I’m finished.

    The road is coming along quite ok and I'm happy with the gravel at the edges of the road. Also added some basic grass textures to get more live to the ground

    This is the point I got with this yesterday. I try to finish this fast (in two evenings) to find reasonable ways to do the battlemats quickly. I should be able to spend few hours to finish this today after I get the kids to bed.
    Though I'm a bit worried that this map starts to have too much going on in it. In my opinion less is more what comes to battlemats. I will tone it down in the next version and maybe few other tricks to make it less busy.

    Really nice texturing you have there. Are you going to print this out when you are done?

    Thanks Rav, yes I will print it out. I only have possibility to print A3 size color prints, which means the mat will consist of four A3 sheets taped together. The samples attahed here are ˝ of the original resolution. The actual size is 3200x2300 so when printed out, it will be 100dpi which is enough for the purpose.

    I think this one is finished, or is it? Do you think it is ok as it is or should it be toned down or add/remove something? I already made the ground less green to get the bushes and trees more visible.

    Outstanding! This is exactly the kind of map all VTT GMs need. Something realistic and generic enough to drop in almost anywhere.

    +2 for no grid

    Wow, that is utterly beautiful! Some of the best texturing I've seen on this site (but then you are the texture Meister!)

    Looks wonderful, Pasis.

    The only thing I'm not a fan of is the digitally shiny hill thing in the south but your boulders and rocks look fantastic.
