The tutorial you've made won't work, different tools, but I could try make my own. Have you used any GIMP before?

Question, where do I acquire the 'Ground' as well as the 'Mountain&Snow' textures that you mention quite literally out of nowhere on page 4?

It might be nice to have a 'You will need _________ prepared in advance.' part in the beginning.

I'm encountering more problems. You would think working with this program for a year in high-school would have taught me how to deal with some of this stuff :/ Would you prefer my questions be sent as notes or posted here?

:iconthe-prototype92:
The-Prototype92 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
post them here :) The Ground and Ice textures are not mine. They belong to Digital Heavens so you'll need to use your own textures. I will add it to the description

Nice, I now have the .jpg files at my disposal. Glad you are willing to work to improve this stuff.
Aaaaand more problems:
1.) How do you get the ground and ice files to display that little box/page with a square missing in the layers section?
/---|
|[] |

(bad picture above)

2.)Also, when I tried to move the Layer 1 Copy 2 to the new file, it is not big enough to cover the whole workspace.

:iconthe-prototype92:
The-Prototype92 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To get the layer mask for the ground and ice texture you must drag the layer 1 copy 1 & 2 over to the other file. and then you must get the files to fit the size (Ctrl+T) and drag them to size . make sure that the files are above the ground and ice textures. then go to the select --> color rang and follow the instructions from there. Hope this helps :)
