Another goodie for my fellow Deviants.

It's a large JPG file (3000 X 2400 & 4,5 MB size) , to make it easier to scale down for your needs.

If you use it for hobby or commercial is up to you, I don't mind. Just don't call this resource your work ;-)

Though, since this was a little more complex than my Layer Styles - I appreciate some feedback (a link to your art?) and being credited if you use it.

Enjoy :)

Elements used in this one:
A photo I took of an antique lacquered table (thanks auntie) that had the world map on it.
A self-made leather-like Layer in Photoshop
Various self-made brushes
Layer Blending and Styles/Actions
The "line-art" that looks like a frame was done also in Photoshop with shapes.
My own floral lineart (it's just barely visible and adds here more or less to the texture)

Thank you :)
Looks nice your skin-changer :)
Is this from an manga / Animé series or completely your original story? I am always interested in shapeshifter characters and stories :)

She's just an original character I made up. Technically she's a Tolkien-verse character. After seeing the Hobbit in theaters about 4 times, I decided I wanted to RP on tumblr with her. I more or less created her because I felt that there were too few skin-changers in the rp circle, and I didn't think I could handle a canon character.

Ah :) wonderful. There are in general not many shape-shifter characters in any kind of RPG... (besides werewolves and such)

I think a lot of it stems from people not knowing how to RP as one without it seeming like god-modding. Then, when they try not to, they basically turn the character into a human. I took some time looking at guides for RPing them, since they've floated onto my dash on tumblr. RP help blogs are really useful for all sorts of characters.

Thank you for making this available I used it in my powerpoint as a background for my teaching through the book of Philippians. Love the colors and the ancient feel. Rich tones. Thanks again.
