I got a few requests for this on the CBT forums, so I thought I'd put together a tutorial. This tutorial is for a fairly simple map, just to give everyone an idea of some of the basic process.
Part 1 covers the first stages of creating a nice ground texture, and adding water. Part 2 covers basic water effects: [link]
As I've stated in the tutorial, this is for intermediate users who have some familiarity with PhotoShop's basic tools. If you're unsure about a certain tool or function used here, there are plenty of great tutorials on deviantART that cover introductory functions.
This tutorial is not to be altered, edited, redistributed, or sold.
