I recently made a couple of compasses that I was rather pleased with - one for my Mountain Realms (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10461-Mountain-Realms-a-region-map.) map and one for my Crows Feet (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10441-Crows-Feet-A-Gnome-Bar-and-Brewery) map.
So I thought I would share them with the guild and I threw in a couple more now I was at it anyway... plan to make some more and put up here as time permits :)

Feel free to use them non-commercially but ask if it is commercially :)
(I do have them in a larger version also if needed)

enjoy :)

Neat stuff Tilt, thx for sharing!

So inspiration hit me and I had to make one more... :)

Awsome. I never get around to making those and seeing as you do it so well, I need never tax myself!

put your feet up and relax Aval, I got you covered ;) ... and thanks :)

If you have something that would suit my Naerth (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?9909-Naerth-A-Map-of-the-World) world map, I would be very grateful. :P

Try looking at this one Aval , maybe that will fit? :)

Hey these are cool!

tilt
05-29-2010, 03:41 AM
thank you - feel free to come with requests :)

tilt
05-30-2010, 05:10 PM
And here is a simple one for black and white maps :)

Very nice indeed! Have some rep. Thanks for contributing, Tilt!

tilt

thanks ravells :)

So, just needed a short break from studying for my exam - so I threw together another compass :)

These are awesome!
Since you're taking requests, maybe you can come up with something using this graphic. It's an image I created for an older version of my game, and I've been trying to turn it into a good compass for my WIP map http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10226-WIP-Ortellum&p=112631&viewfull=1#post112631
Here's the image:

Those are cool, tilt, especially that black and red one and the green and gold guitar-pick looking one.

I can't rep you again so soon after repping the Mountain Realms, but the sentiment is there. :D

tilt
06-02-2010, 04:09 AM
@Natai - I'm sure I can cook up something ... just have to finish my exam starting in... eh... 5 hours ;)
@Diamond - thanks a bunch :)

Gidde
06-02-2010, 03:29 PM
Been waiting to post until I could rep you again, tilt, but I still can't and I had to say thanks for posting these. I'm always at a loss when it comes time for the compass, and these give great inspiration!

tilt
06-03-2010, 02:09 AM
thank you very much for those kind words :)

tilt
06-04-2010, 03:01 PM
Another compass - black abstract style :)

LonewandererD
06-05-2010, 09:26 AM
Whoa Tilt these are cool, repped. Is there a special technique you do to create these? My compass needs some updating.

-D-

tilt
06-05-2010, 02:23 PM
thanks, no - no special technique - I just get an idea and start working, usually start with north and work my way around - first the big ones, then smaller - then fillings :)

Diamond
06-06-2010, 10:10 PM
Hey Tilt, mind if I post one I made here?

tilt
06-07-2010, 03:31 AM
Diamond my friend... no I don't - but, you should post it as png-24 with transparent background instead :)

Sinastir
06-07-2010, 06:17 AM
Awesome! Thanks for the compass. I snagged the abstract black one that was posted a few posts above. They all look great though!

tilt
06-07-2010, 06:53 AM
thanks Sinastir, glad you liked them :)

Diamond
06-07-2010, 03:39 PM
Diamond my friend... no I don't - but, you should post it as png-24 with transparent background instead :)

I will bear that in mind for the future. :D

I love these, Tilt! I think my favourite, so far, is the fragmented black one. It's really brewing ideas in my head - now to see if I can drag anything out of those ideas.

Beautiful work, and duly repped.

thanks rythal and alta for the kind words - and I'm glad to inspire as well as create ;)

Another compass hits the thread :)

steelstiletto
06-14-2010, 04:42 AM
I think that this might be my favorite thread! I'd just been using the defaults that came with CC3.

tilt
06-14-2010, 06:59 AM
thank you very much... I'm glad you can use them :)

tilt
06-30-2010, 10:40 AM
Felt like playing around a little and though why not add another compass to the collection :)

Steel General
06-30-2010, 11:12 AM
Nice, I should drop the flame-breathing skull I made for my challenge map right in the middle :)

tilt
06-30-2010, 11:14 AM
there is allways room for a flame breathing skull :)

tilt
06-30-2010, 11:57 AM
I had forgotten that I had to make a compass for Natai - so here it goes: a proteus spiral compass :)

nill
06-30-2010, 12:51 PM
Nice, I think that I'll use yellow one on page two. Thanks for sharing, take some Rep!

Natai
06-30-2010, 08:01 PM
Very Cool! Thanks, I'll add it to the map and post the latest WIP soon.

Your compasses are great tilt. I want to make my own collection, see how that works out. Do you use Illustrator or Photoshop? I find it easier to work with Illustrator on this kind of task.
What do you think?

tilt
07-04-2010, 05:13 PM
Actually I work with both - but photoshop is my favorite program - cause I learned that several years before illustrator. Illustrator does however have the advantage of true scalability :)

07-06-2010, 11:55 PM
These are awesome! Makes me want to try...

I'd rep you, but my influence would be minimal.

tilt
07-07-2010, 03:19 AM
you can only give out points when you have 10+ yourself - but I think I speak for all inhere that rep is always nice no matter if points are attached or not ;)

Gidde
07-07-2010, 01:03 PM
agreed ... it's a nice warm fuzzy even if no points are attached. so rep away!

hohum
07-07-2010, 09:06 PM
Oh! So that's why no one ever gets any points from me. Bummer, I'll need to do something truly amazing to get myself more rep so that my rep will actually mean something.

So, holidays are over (almost) and what better way to start working again than to make a beautiful compass - please enjoy :)

Nice. When I look at it I see playing card elements...spade, club. Might be interesting to do a variant with card suit symbols. Could use it on maps for Deadlands (or Wonderland!) LOL. Thanks for sharing.

hmmmm ... nice idea - I just might do that - I usually just doodle when making compasses ;)

And for those who may want to use it, here is the compass rose I made for my current WIP: Urtopis (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?11605-Urtopis)

Both have alpha channeling.

Tilt, I really like that last one, it's sweet. When you doodle these do you usually just doodle one arrow and then duplicate/rotate to create the rest? I mean I can doodle pretty straight but it won't be perfectly balanced like that. Or do you digitally doodle? Hehe, sounds like didgeridoo.

tilt
08-31-2010, 03:08 AM
thanks :)
I digitally doodle - so when I've created the first part of the compass its copy and rotate - and then I work on the next part, and sometimes I have to go back and change something when the whole doesn't look right :)

tilt
09-03-2010, 11:51 AM
just a quick one :)

I've made another compass rose (hand-drawn, which means that the circle's not perfectly round ;) ), heavily decorated:
