14 MORE MOUNTAINS HERE: calthyechild.deviantart.com/ar…
Image pack HERE: calthyechild.deviantart.com/ar…

EVEN MORE ICONS, PLUS A FONT, PLUS TEXTURES, PLUS CONTINENTS AND A TUTORIAL FOR HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MAPS HERE: calthyechild.deviantart.com/ar…

All the free fantasy map generator related things I could find: feedthemultiverse.com/free-fan…

Realized you made a horrible mistake by trying to make your own map? My fantasy map portfolio is available at www.feedthemultiverse.com and I am available for hire. :D

:iconthewhitecrayon: converted this and the "I want more mountains" brush set for the GIMP with my permission and can be found here. thewhitecrayon.deviantart.com/…

Some bro on Reddit converted these to WONDERDRAFT BRUSHES! www.reddit.com/r/wonderdraft/c…
Yes, you too can convert them to any program you would like and if I find them or you send em to me, they will be added.

Have you ever wanted to make a FANTASY MAP and been too lazy to make your own vaguely mountain and treeish shaped blobs?!?!?! NOW YOU TOO CAN MAKE A FANTASY MAP! Includes VAGUELY TRIANGULAR SHAPED BLOBS MASQUERADING AS MOUNTAINS! VAGUELY TRIANGULAR AND HAIRY SHAPES PRETENDING TO BE TREES! CIRCLES WITH A LINE ON THE BOTTOM PRETENDING TO BE A TREE! TERRIBLE-QUALITY HOUSE-ISH SHAPES! A DREADFUL LOOKING COMPASS ROSE! A FEW GRASS SHAPED BLOBS! AN ABSOLUTELY USELESS PILE OF ROCKS! AND MANY MORE SHAPES THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER USE BUT YOU'LL DOWNLOAD ANYWAY!!!!!

Woot! I probably spent no more than 30 seconds on each brush. >_> It's up to you to add scatter effects and figure out how to use them.


As usual: free for use for absolutely everything and anything you feel like, EXCEPT for redistributing the brush pack (unless you converted it to another program and credited me). Yes! Use them commercially! Use them in your comic! Use them in your novel! Use them on your head! Don't credit me if you don't want to! Don't show me if you're too lazy or think it's awful! (but I will fave what's done with my brushes on DeviantArt if I am alerted to its presence.) Edit: I have seen my brushes show up seriously so many times since I made them (it's 2019 at the time of this edit) and all I've ever done is comment "omg I made those hi." Fear nothing, make maps.

If you want to support me, please link to my fantasy map portfolio at www.feedthemultiverse.com or my comic at www.stargazersgate.com.

A fave if you use them, might use them, or like them would be awesome.

It's still working for me, I assume DeviantArt had a hiccup of some kind.

Oh gosh I love this, I love the description, I added it to my favorites and I'm gonna try to use it when I get home (if I can get my laptop started it because it's,,,, struggling™) but honestly these brushes look pretty good, and the description you have - it's absolutely perfect, I'll tell you. Got me cackling like a madman at work. Thank you very much!

I made some of my own (hand drawn) but many of these are just plain better. I've been playing with them and we'll see how it turns out in the end.

P.S. I'm using them to create maps that may or may not end up in my novels. I'll try to remember to clue you in if they end up in a book. (And credit will be in said novels of course.)

I went to link to your comment and got a giant red warning that it was a high risk site. Just thought you might want to know so you can address the misclassification of your site. Thanks again for the fabulous brushes.

What link exactly showed as a high risk site? There's definitely no risk on my webpages. I checked both of my personal websites on Chrome and Firefox and did not receive any such warning–so I will need a LOT more information to address this, starting with what URL it was you visited and what gave you the warning (your browser? An anti-virus program?)

This link: betweenplaces.spiderforest.com (or at least that's the link I copied just now, which was the one you said is linked to your comic). I tried going there again, same result. It's Webroot, so it's probably something internal for them. I assumed your site was fine, but if I got the warning, other people are probably getting it too, so I thought you'd want to know. I know it's possible to contact Webroot and let them know they're causing you problems for no valid reason. I hope this info helps.

Thanks for letting me know. I think I have an idea of what the problem is. In the meantime, feel free to link to my current portfolio, www.feedthemultiverse.com if you would like to support me. I appreciate the information!

Thank you! I've used them for a map to be included in book three of a fantasy series. Awesome!

Thank you. I really appreciate free for use stuff. Sometimes stock/brushes rules are so intense I just don't even download them, I like to be free to create for whatever purpose...thanks for allowing that

Cool brushes, thanks for making these. :)
Made one brush on my own, but feel I don't have the time and skill to make more, so thanks for saving me time ;)

Thank you so much for making these brushes available! They've played an integral role in the map for my upcoming fantasy novel. Heart
