Part 1: In this tutorial we will create a basic terrain using displacement maps. The displacement map is obtained by using a procedural texture that will be modified later in Photoshop.

Part 1: Creating the Terrain

Part 2: In this tutorial we will be creating 10K textures in Photoshop, that will be later applied to the terrain model we created in Part 1.
