A Tile to Go with Schley Aliens
I created this seamless tile PNG to emphasize the alien symbols.
Here it is at full zoom out:
I am also using a multiply blend mode over the rivers to make them look less like solid wavy blue lines (copied rivers to the blend sheet and then changed fill to water texture). I played around with the river color and some effects too.
I learned by accident that the blend effect is stored on the common sheet (I think) and does not go away even if you delete the blend sheet. Which makes sense because you might want to use separate textures on multiple items on multiple layers.
The one thing I couldn't figure out how to make look right is placing clouds. I wanted to put green or orange tinged clouds over the land covering the mushrooms with their shadows. I kept thinking mushrooms don't like direct sunlight so I wanted the clouds to be hovering over them protecting them, but it never looked right.
