AAAAUUUGGHHH!!! Artimidor, how do you do those trees? I can see highlights in them, and whenever I try, it looks horrible. As if I were making gray, blurry, overlapping, lollipops! This might be helpful in the map tutorials. Do you use a special tool? I must know. Other than that, I'm almost finished with the map of Kan'thral. (I need to come up with symbols for Pixie capitols, cities, and villages, along with the Sprite equivalent. I already have fairy cities over and done with. Looks slightly like a fairy-ring type of symbol, only not three dimensional.)

No special technique involved in drawing the trees. They are simply manually drawn. I've drawn my first such trees at my very first Photoshop picture quite a while ago, which you can see at elfwood.lysator.liu.se/lo...n.jpg.html - if you have drawn a bunch manually just copy and paste them using the "Feather" at the selection (at least this is how I would do it with Photoshop). Make sure to take a look at the Workshop section on the site (3rd menu from below) if you haven't done so already. You can also take forests of existing maps and copy them on your own (and adjust them to your needs), if you want!
