Sketchy Cartography Brushes by StarRaven 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]

Thank you for letting me use these! (:
nice brushes thank you for share it =)
Hello StarRaven. I've used this brush pack to prototype a board game I'm working on. I really like the way it is looking and would love to talk to you about it and maybe get your approval.

Hope you see this message.
I'll be trying to draw maps for my fantasy world using a few different brush sets.
I do intend to be published though, but it's more likely they'll end up re-drawn by an illustrator eventually.
My world is pretty big. :-)

I used your brushes to make a map of my original world, thanks so much for sharing, they're amazing!

I will most likely be using these to create a map for my fantasy novel - assuming that is okay with you (they look outstanding).  I will definitely be sure to give credit to you in the book - again, assuming it's okay that I use them for that purpose.

Hi StarRaven
I'm making a map for a math game that will be used commercially.
I found these brushes interesting and would like to use them.
Ofcourse you will be credited for the brushes. 
So would you allow me to use them and if yes how would you like me to credit you.

Thank you
