Map Symbols by crimsonvermil-stock Map Symbols by crimsonvermil-stock
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.

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

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.

nope I didn't really convert it. I just used ABR viewer and then I could open them like a picture and then I added them. Really time taking ! But it works. Just not as good as a pencil usually does.

Awesome set of brushes.. :D

I have a question though: how can I pivot the brushes? Like.. if I wanted to have paths in other directions rather than solely from west to east?

I'm kinda new with photoshop. :(

I used your brushes in this map here - [link]

I must apologize, but I did not add your icon D: I will make sure to do so at a later date, if you wish. ^^ I did link back to this page though.

I will be using the map off-site, on a role-play site my friend and I are creating together. I hope you don't mind, but I used your brushes as inspiration for some other brushes I made in the map too. However, these brushes got deleted shortly afterward, because my laptop crashed from the large file size x.x

I really liked these brushes. They were unique, wonderful to play around with, and a great inspiration for details! If I use them again in the furture, I will be sure to let you know.

I don't mean to accuse you or anything, but I was checking the map of Middle Earth, and the stuff you gave looks really really similar to it [link] so I was just wondering if it was your inspiration or if you used it. :]

Whoops! Well not to be too cranky, but I hand drew them myself. I may have been "inspired" by several other maps. So yeah, they are mine. BUT Everyone is free to use them, no one can sell them. I give them to the world.
