I made this brush set in Photoshop 7.

There are MANY MANY brushes in this set, (more than 30) including many mountains, rivers, city markers, a compass, and the symbols for marsh, prairie, forests, hills, farmland and so forth.

All of these symbols where hand drawn by myself. Then I took a picture of them with my camera and painstakingly cut out each symbol and uploaded it into photoshop.

I don’t know if it can be converted to other programs, or how, but if you would like to convert it, please do so and post your new brush set on deviant art. Please credit me and link back to this brushset.

This is my third brush set. I hope to have many more. Watch my account for future stock and and tutorials.

To make your own brush set for photoshop 7 check out Obsidian Dawn's helpful tutorial: [link]

I have a regular art account. Please check it out if you have the time. :iconcrimsonvermillion:

Link back to this page in your deviant description.
Include my icon by writing :icon crimsonvermil-stock: (with no spaces)

You may use my stuff in prints.
You may use it off site.
No hate!

Add this to your favs if you download it, assuming it works.
Leave me a note if you like it. (It's good for your karma!)
Check out my regular account and such if you are happy to have free brushes :iconcrimsonvermillion:

If you use it off site please note me with a link, I do want to see your website/myspace/ljicons/game maps or whatever.

Have fun!

Any thoughts on "commercial use"- such as using these brushes to make maps that're part of a commercial product? For example, a D&D campaign setting.

"Provide me with a free copy" is a fine set of terms, but I just wanted to make sure. You wouldn't be the first artist to want it like that. The guy who does my fonts is the same way.

sorry for the double post, just tried it. This DOES work in GIMP, no need to convert all ABR files work in GIMP and PhotoShop. Very nice work. Thanks

Some of my professors like "quirky" in renderings. This will be a great addition to my tools! Thanks!

Thanks for uploading! While I'm looking at several resources at the moment, I'm considering using this for a course at Full Sail University. I'll let you know if I end up using it or not and link you to to the final product.

I'm using this for an online geography class. Makes my map assignments a lot easier! I can't link back because I will be posting in my college dropbox, but I figured I'd thank you here and fav it!

Thanks for these! Ye gods, I'd been drawing trees and stuff individually by hand, and suddenly realised there had to be an easier way. You've saved me absolute hours on the map for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I am eternally indebted to you.
