Finally used this tutorial as inspiration for some of my own castle/town symbols and I gotta tell you I love the style. Thanks a ton for this (and all) of your tutorials. By the way, what font is that you're using for the "Castle Symbol" text? Is it a free font? Because I like it a lot.
That is a delightful wee castle! Simple though this may be, I've been doodling away at a map and running into problems precisely because I am *not* using isometric paper. Always the way - we let the foundation techniques slide first! Thanks for the gentle kick in the right direction.
I really only use Photoshop and a wacom tablet. And sometimes for more complex scenery I use sketchup to get the basic perspective of shapes right, without having to draw all those reference lines myself
