Pretty much, thanks drathe!
I've retouched it to seem like what I've got in mind, and here's a good version for it:

Now I just need to find a hires version of the pit trap, in order to have a 200dpi 1:1 tile, ready to print.
I might be coming back to request another tile for my quest pack, I'll let you know about it.
Thanks again.
Cheers

The version I posted is 300dpi, 22.5mm².

As long as you're not expecting miracles, I'll try any type of tile you want.

drathe, I've got a tile request... Two actually.

They're for quest 5 "The Sacrificial Lamb" in my questbook "Grip of Lord Bastian (found here: http://www.yeoldeinn.com/hqforum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=435).

The first is an 8x7 grassy tile which would cover the center of the board, as it's the "town square".

The second is a 1x2 tile which would look like a bridge or walkway on top of a wall to cover the space between the squares marked "K".

Any help would be appreciated.

For the grassy area, it might be easier to use Ron Shirtz' Meadow tile from the terrain tiles page.
http://www.yeoldeinn.com/tiles-shirtz-terrain.php
I recommend contacting him (email at the top of that page) and asking permission to use the tile in one of your quests. As long as you're not trying to sell your quest and make profit off his tiles, he usually grants permission for their use. I would also mention that you will need to crop and resize it to fit the space you need it for on the board.

The wall walkway would be a different story. I'm not sure what I can do, but I'll give it a go later this week.

Thanks drathe.

I loaded up Photoshop and I've made a couple of test tiles which look... meh. But I'm trying to learn some Photoshop skills in order to make them look better.

I'm going to try that bridge tile today. Got a bit of spare time, finally.

UPDATE: How is this?

Used the back of the Inner Sanctum wall from the Mage of the Mirror expansion for the bricks, then added some texture and shading.
