Sketchy Cartography Brushes

By StarRaven

- The zipped folder contains a Photoshop brush file containing all the brushes shown here, as well as a transparent .PNG file with all the images on it, in case you're using something that does not support this file type.

- Please link to this if you use these brushes, so that people can easily find them if they like them! (In fact, that's just a nice thing to do with any stock you use.)

- You don't have to ask my permission to use these (except for commercial purposes*) - the answer is yes. If you ask me anyway, I'll tell you yes and thank you for being polite. :3
*You may use these in deviantART Prints. For commercial use outside of deviantART, please do contact me for permission.

- I always appreciate a link to deviations made with my resources; I love to see what people make!

- If you have any comments or critique, I would love to hear it! Tell me what you think so I can make these better and more usable.

Edit: Now contains bigger town icons, by popular demand. Also contains the jungle blocks, which were missing from the first version for some reason. If you want to download the recent additions only, you can find those here: [link]

My favorite maps that use these brushes: [link]

I just saw your brushes showcased in a Youtube video about mapping with GIMP, and I knew I needed the set. I'm super looking forward to cracking out new worlds using what you've provided here!

They become very blurry when I use them, I've tried googling a fix but I can't find one. Any suggestions?
