Fantasy Cartography Tutorial: Landscape Texture by ForgetDeny Fantasy Cartography Tutorial: Landscape Texture by ForgetDeny
Here's part 1 of my long-promised Cartography Tutorial. It deals with creating the basic drawing, establishing the tools that you will continue to use for the rest of the process and finally establishing a clear texture that will be applied over the colour layer that we develop in the next tutorial. Hope this helps some people out! I'm by no means an expert, but this definitely seems to be a successful technique. A great debt is owed to Jezelf, who created a similar - though far more detailed set of tutorials from which I was able to develop my own approach. Cheers.

I will post the finished version of this map after I have finished putting together the tutorial!

[EDIT] Part 2, dealing with colouring can be found here: [link] [/EDIT]

What, I can't say it was useless -- I did learn some tricks, but the tutorial turned out mostly incomprehensible.

I did this out of generosity, not for income. Go home with your entitled crap.

Uh, unexpected reaction. I'm sorry if it did sound too rude. I just wanted to follow your instructions and failed -- that's all I wanted to say. In fact, my result was rather impressive -- but quite different from yours.

Perhaps that is what you should have said then, instead of implying that your failure was my fault. This tutorial assumes an already existing fluency with basic photoshop functions as it is not a basic technique tutorial, but a tutorial on a specific method for producing cartographic material. If you want to learn basic technique - find a tutorial that's actually intended for that instead of calling my work "incomprehensible". Seriously, so rude.

I am fluent at Photoshop. It's your tutorial I cannot comprehend.
