View Full Version : Mountain Realms - a region map.
I've finally finished this map ... took a bit of time as I've been rather busy, but now I concider it all done and can move on to the next. A big thanks goes to Pasis for making the tutorial that got me started and taught me the basics of how to make this map - great tecniques :)
And a big thanks to all the people who commented on it on the way to help me improve it :)
EDIT: Looks like the thumb didn't generate, don't know if that is because of its size? But please click and watch and tell me what you think :)

Very nice map Tilt! i like especially the snow on the forests in the north, the colors you choosed and the finitions. Very good ;)

Beautiful work Tilt! Great sense of height and depth, interesting and novel way of framing the map, and I also really like those city/capital/mines icons. Greta job and have a bit of rep.

Amazing work Tilt. Love it.

Tilt, this looks great! I like the mountains and the interesting land features you put in there like "The Hand" which I think you pulled off very well.
Definitely a keeper.

Very nice indeed. I love the symbols especially. Well done, sir!
thank you all for your kind words, I look forward to doing more like that in the future but for now its citymapping on Breakwater ;)

Excellent job! I thought it was a great looking map--quality stuff. It made me want to start playing! Ditto @whoever said that your icons were great.

Very nice map, are you willing to talk us through how you did the icons? (I am yet another who thinks they are great)
thank you :) ... I'll do my best to remeber it... I just have to check my files :)
Ta da... a mini tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10541-Mini-tutorial-icons-from-Mountain-Realms)is now uploaded in tutorials.

Awesome map, bravo!

Damn, can't believe I forgot to comment on this! All the hard work paid off; this is a thing of beauty. And that border/frame is fantastic! Repped (of course).
thank you Diamond - I'm rather pleased myself and looking to do one more soon - after the city Breakwater though. :)

Great looking map indeed. I see many familiar textures, I'm glad you found them usefull :)
I did indeed pasis, really love that style - it was just what I was looking for - so thanks again :)
Next map however - I'll try to develop my own textures and styles now I got the basics down ;)

This sure isn't the Erkynland I'm familiar with! (Has anyone read Tad Williams' "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn" series?) Really nice map! I like the colors, the mountains, the snow, the icons, the compass rose... but you have two misspellings of "forest." Eek!
hi SC - thank for pointing that out, gotta go edit those then... to bad photoshop don't spell check *lol* ... and yes, did read Tad Williams series (moderately good), and now I know where that name came from - it just popped to the top of my mind :)

Great map - I like your take on Pasis' mountains. As others have said too, those symbols are great. Good stuff!
thanks a lot, means a lot coming from you :)

Awesome map! You did a good job with the textures. I especially like the rivers.

Dude, this map is wicked, have you entered it in any competition? I would surely vote for it. You did an awsome job.
thanks TSO, nope - just made for my own and my players pleasure :)

Cool map OoO
I love the depth and the way the mountains look

Wow, that is a magnificent map! ☆☆☆☆☆ There are so many things I could complement on. :D But to avoid a super long post I will just say that the labeling, textures, & terrain is remarkable and I really like the border, scale, & compass.
What program did you use to make it?
thanks for the praise, appreciate it :) ... its all made in photoshop, my favorite program :)
