GeneralVyse is a British aficionado and enthusiast of the military and naval traditions of the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century. Normally for the Guild that would not be of much interest, but the General has used his drafting and photoshopping skills to turn out some incredible maps for a Napoleonic age naval fantasy world he dreamed up.

Head on over to http://generalvyse.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured--1 and start poking around. Among the drawings and photos of ships and uniforms you'll find several maps such as:

Port Deviant at http://generalvyse.deviantart.com/art/Port-Deviant-revamp-68065886 (click on the map to enlarge it)

Remote Island at http://generalvyse.deviantart.com/art/Remote-Island-Devia-60098705 (which has been photoshopped to make it look like its out of a 19th Century printed book--Holy Cow, well done sir)

The Republican Port of Istanbul at

The Republican Port of Keel at http://generalvyse.deviantart.com/art/Port-of-Keel-the-Republic-57345338

An example of one of his many of his age of fighting sail ship drawings can be found at http://generalvyse.deviantart.com/art/Fleet-of-Imperial-Devia-54859284

I really am intrigued by his style! Line-art with a human touch. Also, his color choices (ex: on Port Deviant) are far too saturated, graish, and clashing--and yet they absolutely work! How did he do that??

Great, great find. Someone needs to invite him over here! An admirable talent.
