Hey all,

I'm in the midst of developing my game and I'm trying to create a boardgame track. Like the images below. Not in the exact same shapes, but similar style. Anybody got any suggestions?? Appreciate your help in advance!

I'm sure there are videos out there on this topic, but I couldn't pinpoint the right search term to describe this!

Hello and welcome to PSG.

I'm hoping someone will jump in here and offer you some help. Not knowing your level of experience with Photoshop, I have a technique for this, but I fear it's a bit involved for someone not familiar with Photoshop. You would need to know how to use the Pen Tool, stroking a path, Layer Styles, and multiple (2) layer masks.

I used your example as an overlay. And just followed the pattern.
(This is obviously not completed)

Without the overlay...

If your not familiar with the tools I mentioned, here are some links:

As I said, I hope one of our other members may have a easier way to do this.
