Hi again Guild Members!

It's been too long since I last posted some map work and I'm half-happy to post my latest map illustration. Half-Happy because I had to put on all this copyrighted junk on it, remove the city titles and not mention what the map is for, NDA agreements and it's always best to play it safe. Anyway enjoy, I'm always glad to hear all of your comments and any critiques and I'm looking forward to starting some more maps very soon.

Welcome back Terry,

Gorgeous map again. Despite the watermark which makes full appreciation more difficult, we can still see the talent here. I especially like the way you represented the citiies. Never saw that before and it is very nice. That actually gives you a way to give a hint about how special the places can be. Clever.
Hard to say more when everything looks perfect ...
The most difficult to appreciate is the sea. The watermark doesn't help but I would think that the sea is (maybe) too desaturated compare to the lands. So it makes the lands pop-up a bit too much. But again, it's hard to see that properly. On the other hand, it can have been done purposefully and then there is nothing to say.

Overall, it's a wonderfull map and the artist's touch can be easily seen.
Can't wait to see more from you, very inspiring!

yep.. to bad about the watermark but fully understandable - looks really good. Maybe you can post some closeups without the watermark - or just i a bigger size so the watermark doesn't obscure so much :)

Thanks for the comments Dain and Tilt. You might be right about the saturation Dain, I did plan to give the land a pop over the surrounding waters, maybe I went to far :P. And a close up does sound like a good idea. Here's a close up of two cities and a river/marsh...sorry again for the watermarks on the big map everyone, but last thing I need is a lawsuit haha.

Wow, I too have not posted for ages, but this map even with the heavy watermark is truly inspiring! I can only imagine what it looks like without the watermark overlay. Beautiful work and certainly worth protecting the copyright.

Each little city is a little work of art itself!

I have to agree, the cities are really neat. If you zoom in on the big map you can see there is a lot of little details you put into all the locations and the closeups are beautiful.

Thanks for the city love RobA and Jaxilon. I admit the city details are unrealistic based on the map size but its an illustration and as long as it conveys some fantasy feeling to the world then really who needs realism :)

Sorry everyone, I had to delete the images...I'll put them back on when the company releases them, with no watermarks!

thats okay - looking forward to seing more from you - also other maps :) ... and who cares about the "realism" of the city, cause as you said - they convey the spirit of the city and look cool (oh.. mentioned that allready) ... but they do! ;)
