I haven't played around with techniques in a while, so I figured I'd take a break from my New York project to mess around. this is a combination of the Pasis tutorial and the Tear tutorial. Also uses one of MediocreMemory's parchment papers.

Impressing island on the top there. Are you thinking of doing the same the the whole continent?

It's been over a year since I've worked on this map. It was kinda' interesting coming back to it after such a long hiatus. I haven't come up with a name for it yet though. :)

Amazing. In the part of high mountains you can see the pixels, I think it should be softed a little. But that's like just my opinion, man :P
Good work so far, please proceed. I wonder how much beautiful will be the final map :)

I really like your shallows around the shore areas...those rock

It's a style I'm not very fond of, but you are doing it very well. I particularly like the sharp peaks and diverging ridges on the mountains.

Made some more progress on this one...still just kinda' playing around with textures and stuff.

I spent the better part of the day working on this today and made some decent progress. It almost seems like I'm swimming in sand right now...I thought that after spending 8-9 hours on it today I'd be farther along. Oh well...it'll be done eventually. :)

It looks pretty 0.0 ... real pretty. But ... are you sure the country names are visible enough? Especially on green backgrounds?

I've been considering changing the look of the kingdom names...perhaps I will. :)

I cannot say that I like the spidery mountain types... but the blending of forests and mountains alone is glorious. The lettering is also wonderfull... I am eager to see what you will do with the kingdom text.

I agree the font is nice, it's just my regular gripe, because red on green makes my eyes water and I can't make out the lettering very well. Call it the colour-blind-curse :D some people form the river police, maybe another group should be the red-green police ;).

I really think the mountain / forest combo work beautifully together. Great stuff, Cereth!

Yes, the forests are especially lovely, and I really like what you've done with the oceanic terrain. I'm indifferent to the mountains: the shape seems good to me, but the colors seem a bit too dark. All in all though, this looks like a map with real promise.

Cheers,

Cracking map, really great stuff.

Loving the mountain shapes (particularly the middle range and the bottom-right range, Grimfell & Jade?), the blend with forest is amazing.

Funny that Jax, I was just thinking that they looked like continental shelving and that they could do with starting a bit further off the coasts (and not at all in the big lakes, or much more gentle and shallow) or that the scale of the place is truly enormous. In which case cooollll!

Love the whole look and feel though.

I'm back to working on this map now that I am taking a brief respite from taking any new commissions. I started this one nearly two years ago. :-P

Nice map, I really like it. It's good to see that you haven't abandoned it. ;)
