3D6 Dungeon Master's tiles

3D6
This post was updated on .
This is a place for me to post tiles that I have made and hopefully receive feed back. This might be a good place for me to post tips and tricks on how I did certain things. I usually start with a rough sketch of the dungeon layout I have in mind on good old Graph paper. Graphed out I then take the idea and flesh it out on 8.5 x 11 paper that I grid out with one inch blocks. In my mind, one 1 inch square equals about five feet. Sketched out With the tile sketched out I usually then take the idea into photoshop. I use to scan in my sketches and then trace over them with the pen tool but I've gotten a bit lazy lately and decide to simply start fresh with a blank canvas, using my sketch as reference. I'm trying to discover ways in photoshop to keep the tiles as real looking as possible which is not an easy task for me and I kind of "wing it as I go along." In this example I am converting my prison block and needed stone flooring and walls but I didn't want plain one inch squares. So I made a one inch by one inch tile, made my design and saved it as a pattern, I could then copy and paste in the design in the places I needed. Long story short and about eight hours later I have this: Photoshop

By the way nabble's iPad interface sucks which is why I used links instead of uploading pictures.

If you want to create some good slab textures, Google patio slabs.

They are nice and square, resize them and desaturate them, then add your colour definition.

A good way to get tile textures I found was to extract surface-graphics from games like Doom or Quake.  They have so many stone, marble & metal floor textures, plus some gruesome decor too :)

I like your tile work.  I also have a fetish for graph paper and ink.  Mucho respect Mr 3D6.
